Re: Missing the point

Just recently in New Zealand an idiot with a drone caused 5 helicopters fighting a scrub fire with monsoon buckets to be grounded while its flier was found and scragged and the drone grounded. Meanwhile the fire was burning merrily.

Fortunately no built property was endangered or destroyed though a road was closed. The fire was successfully reduced to monitored smouldering once the choppers were able to fly again.

However if people continue to try and get footage of such incidents they will continue to cause problems.

It is the summer hols in NZ so lots of people out and about in the sunny outdoors on holiday with their Xmas pressies.
