Drone Show comes to Rome

Predator Drone among unmanned fleet hovering into Eternal City

(ANSA) - Rome, May 23 - Drones for all seasons will be hovering over the Eternal City this weekend at the Roma Drone Expo & Show.
    Unmanned aircraft for farmers, filmmakers, security experts and the military will be on display Saturday and Sunday at the Stadio degli Eucalipti in southern Rome.
    Models on display include the Predator Drone, which can carry and fire two AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and has been used in combat over Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, as well as in search-and-rescue missions over the Mediterranean.
    "Everything that has to do with drones will be on public display," said event organizer Luciano Castro. "From small toy drones that cost a few cents, to very sophisticated examples being constantly innovated. There are a lot of ways drones are being used in Italy, from big businesses to start-ups".
