Offbeat Video

By Joe McFarlane

A skilled drone pilot flew above and narrowly avoided fireworks.

Getting ready for the July 4 festivities, Nick Rutt decided to take his drone into the skies above Lincoln, Nebraska.

As it took of into the night sky, his neighbours were doing a test run for the following days celebrations.

Nick said: “I was trying to match altitude with the explosions while not actually getting hit.

“I was really hoping to capture some cool footage and think I managed it.”
