Lift Lock on the Canal

Today I had a chance to fly over the Kirkfield Lift-Lock, part of the Trent Severn Waterway. I have heard that Parks Canada had recently instructed lock staff to disallow flying any “drones on their grounds”. I took off from an “off site” location, took the pictures in less than 11 minutes and was done before anyone even noticed. No harm was done and no aviation rules were broken.

Quite frankly, I can see governments in the not too distant future, establishing a “no fly zone” over these installations and other similarly security sensitive places.

All the innocent, interesting fun is being drained from our world…….
