Drone over Monivong

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Drone over Monivong

Post by bong.kuit » Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:32 am

I saw my first drone today, on Monivong around 5.15 pm. It was standing in the air at about 10-15m, in front of Canadia Tower, directly before the big intersection when driving southwards. Black, maybe 60 cm diameter, with two "eye-like" red lights.
Are they used for traffic control? Or what else could it be? It was quite a weird encounter... :?

No worries. Probably just these guys again.

You would need a permit.

Ok, let me rephrase...

Are they used to check out when opposition MP's are leaving the NA?

(Actually there was one of these bigger police stops close to where I saw the drone before when I went back two hours later. That's why I mentioned traffic control. Mea culpa. :roll: )

The National Assembly isn't anywhere near Monivong.

Oh, I mistook the Peace Palace for the NA.

Drones in PP are banned ever since a nutter hovered one of them in front of the Queen Mother's windows... https://www.cambodiadaily.com/news/city ... ent-78086/
