Brunswick Police & FBI Warn Drone Pilots Ahead Of Air Show
On the off chance you did not know, the former Brunswick Naval Air Station will host the Great State of Maine Air Show on Saturday and Sunday. The airport, now known as the Brunswick Executive Airport, will host a variety of civilian and military craft.
The highlight of the weekend will be performances by the Blue Angels.
The event had been scheduled to return to the state, after a several year hiatus, last year, but the pandemic put a stop to that.
If you have a drone, you might be tempted to join in the fun. Imagine the cool pics and videos you could get with your drone? Jets in flight, the crowds on the ground, etc.
While it may seem like a great idea, there's a good chance your drone could get in the way and that could end in disaster. Believe me, you don't want to be the person that causes a mid-air collision!
That's why law enforcement is already warning people not to fly their drones anywhere near the action.
According to News Center Maine, the Brunswick Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have instituted a "no-fly zone" 5 miles around the airport. That zone is in effect from now through the end of the show on Sunday afternoon.
The "no-fly zone" applies to drones and all other types of aircraft.
According to the Brunswick Police Chief, the FBI will prosecute anyone who breaks the rules.
