Drone Mishap at Muse’s UK Concert

There will always be people who’d go breaking rules no matter if it poses danger to themselves and/or others.

One report said a gig by the rock group Muse was disrupted by a technical mishap when a drone began falling to the ground while the band was on stage.

According to The Dronecode of the CAA, drone flyers must use your common sense and fly safely; […] Drones fitted with cameras must not be flown:

  • within 50 metres of people, vehicles, buildings or structures

  • over congested areas or large gatherings such as concerts and sports events

Gizmondo said in its report that Muse has recently shown a particular interest in drones, despite the dangers the aircraft often present.

Celebrity or not, anyone who wishes to fly a drone should exercise utmost caution and restraint. No publicity stunt is ever worth the risk of hurting or endangering people’s lives. Because of their stature, and influence, celebrities should all the more observe the use of their drones in a safe, responsible manner in accordance with the aviation authority’s rules and regulations.

Last year, another celebrity pulled off a stunt on stage involving his drone, and got hurt in the process. See “Iglesias in Self-Caused Drone Accident

Flying a drone is indeed fun and creative, especially for aerial photography services, but safety and security concerns take prime consideration over anything else in order to avoid needless damage, injuries and loss of lives.
