No drones: FAA only wants pigskin in the air at Super Bowl – Allison Campbell

The Federal Aviation Administration reminded football fans about the “no drone” policy for Super Bowls by posting a video on their YouTube page. This year, the FAA will take extra measures and implement a 30 mile radius around the stadium where drones (and other unnamed aircraft) cannot enter an hour before or after the game. These extra measures were put into place in order to increase security and safety for the event. Mainly, this is directly related to a government official’s drone being crashed on the lawn of the White House earlier this week. I selected this article because I thought it was interesting to see how a certain piece of technology that could potentially  help fans get a better view is not allowed. It will be interesting to see if in the future stadiums will figure out a way to work with the FAA and allow team or stadium owned drones on the grounds.
