Yes, but if you don't have a badge, and probably a court order, it ain't legal.

I have never seen a drone at the park.

But, then again, we have ordinances regulating adult bookstores...We've never had one of those either.

That's racist, or speciesist.

A friend of mine just started a drone business over here called National Drones. He's planning on turning it into a franchise operation and then sitting on his arse for the rest of his life, or until he gets bored enough for the next bright idea to hit.

And you thought 'pepping toms' and eavesdroppers were not dangerous.

Flying Scotsman hit by drone on North York Moors

Police are investigating after the Flying Scotsman was struck by a drone while steaming across the North York Moors.

Passengers were terrified by a "huge bang" when the drone hit the rear carriage of the train on preserved railway tracks between Grosmont and Pickering.

Linda Wild, of Whitby, who was travelling on the train, said: "We could see a drone on the left-hand side of the train and thought it must be taking photos.

"The next thing we knew there was an almighty crash. It sounded like it had crashed into the roof.

"It was such a shock and could have caused a major accident. What if it had gone through the window?"

Mrs Wild, who was travelling with her husband and some friends, said the rest of the journey was "brilliant".

But that the incident around 4pm on Sunday had scared her and left her with huge concerns about the use of drones and their safety.

She complained to a guard on the train and British Transport Police are now investigating along with North Yorkshire Moors Railway bosses.

Liz Parkes, head of operations at the NYMR said: "We are aware of a report of a drone grazing the back carriage of the 15.30 60103 Flying Scotsman service from Grosmont on Sunday March 13 in the Huntingbridge area.

"This is currently being investigated by the NYMR and British Transport Police.

"While no damage was caused, obviously drones are distracting to our drivers and could result in a criminal prosecution for endangering trains.

"If any members of the public become aware of any incidents of this nature, we would urge them to report it immediately to a North Yorkshire Moors Railway staff member or the British Transport Police so it can be investigated further."

Drones have been frequently used to record images of the Flying Scotsman which has been seen in public for the first time in more than a decade following a 4.2m restoration.
The damned things get everywhere.

They probably only mean damage to the train, the drone might have been demolished. I would certainly hope a drone couldn't damage a train... Nonetheless, those passengers are clearly wusses.

Freaking the passengers is worse than damaging the train. You know every freaked passenger will tell everyone they know and some they don't. Then each of the people told will tell everyone they know, etc. Somewhere along the line immigrants/refugees will be added to the story, and maybe terrorist flying bombs. When the railroad tries to clarify what actually happened, it will become a conspiracy to hide the truth about UFOs, because you can't handle the truth. Bad juju in the PR department. Maybe I'm exaggerating a tiny bit, but I think it's a distinct possibility.

By the way, did you know Buddhist guerillas from Iceland are using drones to spray paraquat on tea plants? I heard it from a guy who works for the government.

I'm pretty sure Walt Disney's head is running the operation from a pickled pigs feet jar somewhere on the Arkansas River.
