A search through the photo archives of the Department of Defense reveals a photo of drones being deployed to Iraq in 2010. “Gray Eagle unmanned aircraft makes its way down an airfield on Camp Taji, Iraq, before a surveillance mission in the Baghdad area. F Company, “FENIX,” will become an official part of the Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, in the spring, adding its capabilities to the strength of the CAB.”

This was on November 20 and 21. “he sun rises above Camp Taji, Iraq, silhouetting the Army’s newest “eyes in the sky,” the MQ-1C Gray Eagle, Nov. 21. The aircraft is being tested by QRC1-R1, a specially trained drone unit attached to the Enhanced Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division.”
