The San Diego shipyard was the scene of a searing close up late last week, when a drone captured video of a $24-million yacht burning uncontrollably.


Drone pilot Kurt Roll shot the surprise blaze Thursday while the 110-foot yacht was dry docked for repairs.

As Know Techie points out, the dramatic footage find underscores “the potential value of unmanned aircraft for news organizations” — an issue the Associated Press, New York Times and Times Tribune are currently taking up with the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
