  1. Drone was flown before aircraft arrived and TFR was in place. It was flown in coordination with the IMT to get a better analysis of the fire.

    1. I doubt they even have aircraft fighting the fire therefore a TFR probably isn’t even in place…

      1. There is a TFR in place, 25 nautical mile radius from Medicine Lodge, Kansas, and aircraft are being used to fight the fire. I have seen reports of at least one Chinook, and Kansas National Guard Blackhawks. This drone flight could have been outside the TFR area, I’m not there, but drones are becoming a bigger threat to firefighting aviators all the time.

        1. Drones have also become a huge resource to firefighters and emergency response teams to help get a broader view of the situation and damage during emergencies like this.
