Drones? Now they’re banned too.
We don’t just mean the remote-piloted planes the US uses in the Middle East to take out terrorists and wedding parties. We’re talking about the drone you got for your birthday, the one that can go a thousand feet up, the one with the GoPro attachment, the one that (if you’re in the US) you had to register with the FAA.
Now that consumer drones are widely available, you knew someone was going to try and fly one over Area 51. We don’t have reports of anyone’s drone being shot down over the base, but that may just mean that the drone flight was successful. Or, maybe the base management realized what could happen and is merely being proactive.
