Drones in the Wind

How massive gusts make getting the gear back a challenge

There are some elite drone filmographers on our ship. Renan Ozturk, Chris Burkard, Taylor Rees, Ryan Hill, Jeff Kerby - they let drones fly around us, above us without a break. While flying them is hard enough, landing is an even bigger challenge.

The team lost drones on Onekotan the other day - but we will tell that in another story.
