Law in Florida forbids the police to use drones for surveillance of citizens. However, it seems that Miami Beach police have found a legal loophole. Instead of a drone, they use a miniature blimp with a camera attached to it.
The Boeing 737 was making its way earlier this morning from O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, when according to FAA spokesperson Kathleen Bergen the crew spotted a drone 1-2 miles from the end of the runway.
Although no evasive action was required by the plane, the FAA is investigating the incident and politicians are planning stricter regulations on drones.
