ENDED UP IN JAIL FOR THE WAY HE PILOTED A DRONE
39-year-old Paul Skinner has earned his place in aviation history. But with no doubt, not the one he would want. He became the first person to be convicted for the way he flew a drone. As for unmanned airplanes, several of their owners are already serving punishments. For example because they used drones to smuggle drugs or stalked their ex-girlfriends.
But Paul’s punishment was for public safety threat when he lost control of his DJ Phantom which subsequently injured two people.
The incident happened on June 28th, 2015, when Paul recorded the Gay Pride parade in Seattle. After less than a minute of flying he lost control over his drone which then hit a 50-storey skyscraper. And that was probably the worst thing for Paul, the broken machine crashed into a group of lawyers.
