Drone Captures Final Moment Before It Was Knocked Out Of The Sky

A drone in Australia has managed to capture its final moments before it was knocked out of the sky.

While there are strict rules around where you can and cannot fly the little machines Down Under, there are loads of people who don't exactly stick to the law.

However, this drone operator has found out the hard way of what people will do to protect their privacy.

It's unknown where this incident took place however it's very likely Australian as the Great Northern bottle of beer is unmistakably seen hurtling towards the sky to take down the drone.

Judging from the other bottles and red cups strewn on the lawn, it's safe to say a little soiree might have been held on the ground below.

Who knows why the drone was launched in the first place but this picture has lived in infamy for several years.

It was first posted around 2018 and many have tried to pass the couple on the ground as Americans from Kentucky and Ohio.

Others have tried to use the image as a warning against damaging public service, claiming that the drone might belong to police.

To ensure your drone doesn't end up in a similar fashion, it's best to follow Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority's rules and advice.

"You must keep your drone at least 30 metres away from other people," CASA says. "You must not fly over or above people.

"Respect personal privacy. Don't record or photograph people without their consent - this may breach other laws.

"If you believe you've seen someone breaking the rules, you can report it to CASA. Fines of up to $1,110 can be issued per offence. If the matter is taken to court, fines of up to $11,100 can be imposed."
