Near-miss between drone and police Helicopter
Captured in Tulsa during a procession.
Looks like an inspire 2 heading toward a helicopter and getting prop washed.

Drone or UFO?
Breanna, who is one of our graduates (98% on the exam!!) shared this video she took from her backyard.
Thought it was firework at first.
Then after a while, the lights shut off. She said the lights also turned blue at one point.
