Annoyed firefighters attempt to take out drone with fire hose

“As the firefighters from Montgomery and Coldenham in New York were working to put out a house that had caught fire on June 4, a local man named John Thompson decided to fly a drone over the scene to film the proceedings. The firefighters put up with the drone for about 10 minutes and then turned their fire house on it, in what looks to me like annoyance. They send another blast its way about a minute later.

You can see the water blast at about the 12-minute mark in the video above — just after one firefighter points out the drone to another holding the hose.

Thompson says that his drone is now damaged and wants the fire company to pay for a new one to the tune of $2,200. (On a side note, the drone looks like a DJI Phantom 2 Vision to me, which really costs about $1,000.)”

What can you say? It’s low hanging fruit.

I couldn’t pass that one up for sure

Damn shame they only damaged it and didn’t down it outright

I know that if I see one low enough to hit I am probably going to be in trouble

Some time today, I am most likely going to be making a pneumatic cannon

If I get it done I will post some pics

I have made numerous ones in the past and they would be a bang up drone hunter
