DroneRise – Drone halts firefighting operations in British Columbia and a drone video of a church

Good morning, here’s yesterday’s news about a drone halting firefighting operations in British Columbia and a video of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Williamsport, PA, built in 1908, that is about to be replaced by a gas station.

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today’s video is from one of our readers as well. Jeff F. submitted this video that he partially captured with his DJI Mavic Pro. Apparently, the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Williamsport, PA is about to be sold off to a developer who is planning to put a gas station in its place. Jeff wanted to preserve the memories of what the church looked like for generations to come. It was built in 1908! The video even has drone footage that was taken inside the church. Definitely worth checking out!
