Taken somewhere sandy. 

Notice the size of the RQ-4 Global Hawk Remotely Piloted Aircraft - this ain't some Quadcopter!

That's huge!  It must be able to carry some load of ordnance.

On another note, for some reason I thought the U2s hade been retired...  I don't know why I thought that lol

Actually no, Global Hawk is unarmed and purely high-level surveillance. 

And yes, the GH is large.  Easy comparison - its wingspan is longer than a 737's (your typical Westjet airliner) wingspan.
