FAA levies $20k fine on drone operator

It seems he was flying over populated areas of Las Vegas and the strip, lost control, it landed at the airport.

$15,000 fine... plus late fees.

I'm impressed that it landed... at the airport.

Burciaga said. "That’s half of my year’s paycheck for trying to take a picture.”

First reaction: Seems he doesn't get it. Fine raised to $20K.

Mr. Clueless should consider himself lucky he didn't get some free lodging in a Government facility.

And that it didn't set down on an active runway.
