Is there a drone in your neighbourhood?
Below we have a map showing at least 63 active drone sites around the U.S, federal authorities have been forced to reveal following a landmark Freedom of Information lawsuit.
The unmanned planes, some of which may have been designed to kill terror suspects are being launched from locations in 20 states. Most of the active drones are deployed from military installations, law enforcement agencies and border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation Authority. But, astonishingly, and oddly 19 universities and colleges are also registered as owners of unmanned aerial vehicles. It is thought that many of institutions, which include Cornell, the University of Colorado, Georgia Tech, and Eastern Gateway Community College, are developing drone technology.
