This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All notifications, data submissions or other communications between the New York Air National Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration following the crash of a MQ-9 Reaper into Lake Ontario on November 12, 2013.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

Sir,

My apologies on just getting back to you on your request. Our organizational
mailbox has been down since December so I am playing catch up on these
requests. Your request was never transferred to me through our electronic
freedom of information act system so I went in and created another request.
Your current foia number is 2014-02799-F. We are currently in a backlog,
please allow us 30 business days to respond to this request. Thank you.

Sir,

2014-02799-F is the correct number. The department that had your request

Good morning -

Your request is at position #93 in our queue, the initial ECD we gave was June 30 but the specialists don't adjust the ECD's until they come up based on where the request is actually at. Initial ECD's are given based solely on the date the request comes in; however, based on the workload of this specialist and the volume of cases ahead of it in the queue I would preliminarily anticipate it will be at least another 4 months before completion.
