This hilarious video shows the real reason that blimp escaped a Maryland base

In a totally true, not-at-all dramatized video, a former soldier shows exactly how the now infamous JLENS blimp got away from soldiers at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. The incident kicked off a chase that lasted four hours, required two F-16s, and covered 160 miles.

Shocker: Privates are taking the blame.
