Comments: 
Tom Miller (PIC), Eric Munoz (Co-Pilot), Robert Rivera (MD) – After the aircraft left the EAFB Range, 2 of 4 navigation units became inoperative and the Pilots initiated a RTB based on this loss of aircraft redundant capability. The aircraft returned to the EAFB Range and fuel was burned off and then the aircraft landed without incident. This was originally submitted by Chris Naftel on Oct 25, 2011 in the old format.
