We were going to write a story about judges and tax payer monies, and we’ll definitely be writing that story this week, but this story caught our eye:
Recently there was a fire near Ruidoso and fire fighters and air tankers had been busy trying to douse the blaze. Someone trying to get a closer look or just some super, amazingly cool pictures decided to fly their drone in. Luckily, the report about the drone came in AFTER aircraft assigned to the fire flew their missions, if it had come in before, the planes would have been grounded. Loretta Benavidez with the U.S. Forest Service “says the message is clear: If you fly, we can’t.”
So, if you see a fire, DON’T fly your drone over it.
