Sadly, some seriously selfish people are putting entire towns at risk. There is a massive fire raging 5 miles from my friend's home in Pioneertown. Firefighting planes have been grounded more than once due to amateur drones in the flight zone.

If you know of anyone doing this, get them to stop immediately. Lives and property are at stake.
I've given the USFS my number so I can assist when they want "Eyes in the sky".

FAR Part 91 should explain "Temporary Airspace Restrictions" to those who want to know.

Good thread Ian, thanks.

A couple of Hueys, dragging a wide and long net, 2 or 3 passes, should clean up the problem nicely. There is just no fixing stupid. As John Wayne said................. "Life is hard. It's harder if you're stupid!"
