Publius points us to a video of a group calling themselves “Team Black Sheep” launching a remote controlled airplane equipped with a video camera from Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1.
The resulting footage (after the jump) is a great bird’s eye view of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. But when the tiny plane buzzes the Statue of Liberty this wonderful “Millennial Generation” feel good stunt becomes a sober reminder that even a simple toy can be used as a weapon of terror.
Seems like someone did alert Homeland Security during filming as the clip ends with “PoPo rolling up on” the filmmakers. The first responder’s response? Watch the video and see.
