Alien Sightings Were Not A Concern For This Testing Run... Maybe

Sun 'n Fun's first night airshow is Wednesday night, and by Tuesday evening 60 performers didn't have their wings attached. The 60 drones sat on a level patch of ground in the center of Lakeland Linder International Airport, ready to test their show. A crew of four from the Great Lakes Drone Company--Owner and CEO Matthew Quinn, Ashley Munson, Christian Nitz, and Lindsey Nitz--unloaded the small aircraft from the trailer where they lay on the floor, setting them out on the grass instead. The drones connect to Quinn's computer inside the trailer, sending in data about speed, position, satellite connection, and more. The accuracy begins at 3 meters, but counts down to the target of only 0.8 m.
