Also I don't see a moon on their tail. I'd say the moon indicates towards some Islamic country, but so far I haven't been able to figur...

Re: Takeoff Preference

Favorite takeoff of mine was a long and slow one in the darkest of nights at LAX on a PR A343 to MNL and the hairdryer engines came to life at FLEX and slowly lifted to the air like the turkey it was, I loved staring at the wings seeing it flex and watch the clouds get cut by its wings.

Right then, the proper way of doing this is install new firmware in all commerical drones enforcing a whole red zone or no fly zones by airports along STAR,SIDS and along the case of LAX with such specialized airspace. Just no. No.
