Interesting! One of the reports mentions that they equipped the Predator with a Hellfire missile, which was test-fired on a replica of Bin Ladens house in the ranges.
I recall seeing (and hearing on the scanner) in the weeks after 9/11 heavy bombing activity in the central or southern Ranges, most likely Range 64. The explosions could clearly be seen and heard at night from the ET Highway. I remember hearing transmissions that could indicate that remote controlled air vehicles were involed. One night there was a quite spectacular display of flares. See the last photo in the attached link.
