From WhatReallyHappened: This was probably someone innocently testing his new toy, but can we rule out a test-run of something nefarious, in light of Seattle Police Department request that people not use their cell phones for social media during this coming Saturday’s annual Torchlight Parade?
from KOMO News:
It was a tall order, but police were quick to react late Tuesday after receiving eyewitness reports of a drone flying near Seattle’s world-famous Space Needle.
Space Needle security personnel called police just before 8:30 p.m. after several guests reported seeing a small drone buzzing the top of the iconic tourist attraction, and possibly crash into an observation deck window, said Jonah Spangenthal-Lee of the Seattle police.
Witnesses then said they saw the drone – described as a white, quad-propeller aircraft equipped with a camera – glide to a hotel two blocks east of the Needle, where it landed inside a fifth-floor room.
Police investigated but found no signs of damage to the top of the Space Needle.
