Khamsin Molossia News

The Government of the Republic of Molossia is proud to announce our latest foray into the heavens, the Pegasus. The Pegasus is an unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV, designed to explore the skies on behalf of our earthbound nation. Equipped with two powerful engines and a small camera, the Pegasus can take excellent pictures from the sky, while its controllers remain safely on the ground. The plane can be used to observe our nation from above, and to patrol our borders and keep them safe.

On 9 October 2010 XXXIII, the Pegasus soared aloft for the first time, on its inaugural flight over a soccer field about one Imperial Norton from the Molossian Home Territories. This first flight was short-lived due to low battery power, so the UAV was launched again on 10 October 2010 XXXIII, at the same soccer field. This time the Pegasus performed admirably and took remarkable photos from the skies. The plane was launched several more times, with members of the First Family each taking a turn controlling it. After an hour of flying time, the mission and craft were declared a success and the launch team retired for the day. But the Pegasus will fly again, on many future missions!
