A highly-controversial drone video surfaced online that seems to have been captured illegally. In it, the pilot flies shocking close to the US Navy Blue Angels as they performed an “America Strong” flyover in Detroit on May 12th.

The video is from a drone and looks incredible, But, unfortunately, it’s also incredibly dangerous and likely illegal.

A FOX 2 photojournalist was shooting the Blue Angels safely from the ground and got video of the drone, which looks white, in the sky.

During high-profile events like this, there are things called TFRs, or temporary flight restrictions, for drone pilots. That means you cannot fly there.

The FAA says the incident was reported to them and that they are investigating.
