Drone Footage from Payson-Area Search and Recovery Operation

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Payson resident Aaron Witte offered his drone services to the search and rescue team who bought two drones from him to use. The drones, costing between $1,800 and $2,700, were used Monday and Tuesday to fly above the search crews and provide an aerial shot of the East Verde River. Witte hooked the drones up to a TV screen so law enforcement could watch the footage in real time.
