Cpl. Ray Vizcaino, a general account balance file clerk with Supply Company, 1st Supply Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, performs a test flight with the Raven B unmanned aerial vehicle. The Raven B is replacing the Dragon Eye system and brings with it an easier to use program and more versatility in the machine's actions with flight and photo taking abilities. Vizcaino demonstrated how it is launched by throwing it into the wind, rather than launching with a bungee cord, as the old system did.
