It was just some tourist playing with his drone. He thought it was a fly away and contacted DJI about it. DJI said, no drone, no warranty. Little did he know that Russia shot it down. So some of you guys that strangely lost your drone, well Russia shot it down.

Aliens! All the weird Supernatural video stuff happens in Russia. Russia is a cover story for alien interference. The Truth is Out There, ......really out there ....hmmm

Hey! Where's my drone? Anybody seen it?

Now we know why Phantoms got out of stock. The army bought them all to replace those shot down by Russia.

Lol. So, should I turn in my Phantom because it’s most likely considered a WMD by the Russians? I would hate to start an international incident.

Geez, Russia is just across the Bering Sea from me. Can I gorilla tape a few extra batteries on a P3P and with a good tailwind fly over there and try to distract them, so the other drone pilots of the world can fly with peace of mind 🖖

Lol.
Welcome to journalism 101. Just like a stabbing report gets a picture of a gun & the word “murder” behind the reporter. Its typical news outlets knowing nothing about what they report. Some goober googled the word “drone”, and snagged the 1st picture they got.

It was a BAMS (broad area marine surveillance) drone. Otherwise known as a Global Hawk if exportable. Don’t worry we got more, and we’re adding teeth. Got some big surprises for the next guy who attempts a shoot down. Bet that event won’t make the newspaper’s.
