Berlin-A camera drone had a rough landing in front of Chancellor Angela Merkel at an election campaign event in Germany after police told its operator to bring down the craft.
Photos from the event in the eastern city of Dresden showed Merkel looking on in amusement as the small orange drone went down on its side about 2 meters (7 feet) in front of where she was sitting.
City police said a 23-year-old man had sent up the drone at the open-air event Sunday in hopes of taking photos that he could then sell....

Are the high-tech Germans so far behind our Secret Service in mini-drone countermeasures over crowds of people near VIPS? Or maybe there really aren’t any.
A drone of that size can be a kinetic weapon even with no onboard explosives.
See my tagline and:
“Rezwan Ferdaus could have attacked Obamas Air Force One in a runway kill zone (RKZ) not unlike JFKs Dealey Plaza”
“Mysterious ‘drone’ sighting near JFK Airport sparks FAA”
For 50 years we've had Kennedy worship... I couldn't stand to see Obama prayed to or held a martyr.
“I certainly hope no one kills Obamaa while he’s in office.”
Agree!!! It would save Obamacare.
Drones are funny & cute!
ONLY IN OUR DREAMS.
“ONLY IN OUR DREAMS.”
Did you, perchance, read the runwaykillzone.com article and the FAQ at the website?
Please provide any links to mini-drone countermeasures in the public domain that you believe could defeat a GPS guided (not RC) autonomous drone attack on an aircraft in the runway kill zone.
If your assertion that such an attack is “in my dreams” is based on classified knowledge, how about a very general hint or link, if possible?
OK, I understand.
I do NOT have that particular “dream.” I would consider Barry’s untimely demise to be a disaster as he would become St. Barry, just as we now have St. JFK.
Johnson passed the disastrous Great (socialist) Society legislation solely as a result of the JFK assassination and the resultant bonding of most of the American public with JFK’s party and agenda.
If someone did, it would be ruled an insecticide.
I still “Have a Dream “
Can we still be friends?
“Can we still be friends?”
I shall continue to do my best to protect the POTUS, whomever that might be. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
BTW, I have to keep reminding a certain cousin that the NSA data-mines all of his calls to me during which he expresses his “dreams” quite insistently...
