A dramatic ‘drone display’ due to light up the night sky over Tenby harbour and North Beach in support of a public safety campaign, has been called-off once again.
The drone show was due to take place tonight (Wednesday, August 16) at around 9.10 pm after being rescheduled from August 1 when unsuitable weather conditions forced the organisers to call it off at the last minute.
The ten-minute drone display has been designed to capture content for an upcoming PR campaign, to highlight the next phase of the ‘Respect the Range’ campaign by the Ministry of Defence to keep the public safe when accessing military training areas.
On the cancellation of the event for tonight, a spokesperson for the MoD stated: “Despite best efforts, unfortunately we were unable to host the general public at the drone display in Tenby as planned.
“The purpose of the drone flight was to capture content for the MOD’s Respect the Range campaign, which raises awareness of the risks associated with accessing military land.
“To maximise the chance of a successful flight we took the decision to capture content in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
“We would like to thank the Tenby community for its support to the Respect The Range campaign,” they added.
