Camera Drone Video Shows Small Drone Within Feet of Blue Angel Formation
A recent America Strong flyover by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday, May 12 could have ended in a midair collision when a remotely piloted camera drone flew dangerously close to the six F/A-18 Hornets as they flew over buildings in the city's downtown area.
The video began to surface on social media Wednesday, May 12, 2020, the day after the Blue Angel's America Strong flyover in Detroit. The original video posted to YouTube included a number of different angles with the camera drone appearing momentarily in some of the shots.
The final shot shows the Blue Angel six-aircraft wedge formation flying extremely close to the camera drone as they pass overhead at speed.
The left-wing, likely the #5 aircraft in the formation, is very close to the camera drone in the shot.
