Drone came dangerously close to Blue Angels during Detroit flyoverA drone flew dangerously close to the Blue Angels during their flyover of Detroit to salute essential workers. Camera drone footage shows a small drone coming close to the six F/A-18 Hornets during their loop over southeast Michigan on Tuesday. The video was posted to Youtube and showed several angles of the Blue Angels, including one where the aircraft appeared extremely close to the camera, according to a report from The Aviationist.

Wish they would repost the video showing how close... UGH... Need to take these Drone Idiots and hold them accountable... Been in RC for many years, but there are rules that you have to follow... now the Drone morons are ruining it for everyone.
I fly both, sparkie, and the idiots in both fields make my blood boil. It isn't just some multirotor wannabe's that have ruined it for us. Seen a few RC craft flying about, not in proper airspace, and these were not small craft. Mind you those operators did get a kick in the arse, so hopefully this idiot is found and gets more than that.
Here is a copy of the video
Nice job saving this for "posterity"!!!
Find that drone pilot and nail him to the WALL. Then tell the world...
