Photo detail

In this April 29, 2018, file photo, a drone operator helps to retrieve a drone after photographing over Hart Island in New York. Drone sightings reported by airline pilots over New Jersey renew questions about how to accommodate the popular devices into the nation’s airspace. The ability of drones to interfere with aviation is likely to get worse as the number of machines multiplies. Many store-bought drones come with technology to prevent owners from flying them near airports, but there are hacks, and home-built machines don’t necessarily include those protections.
