thousand to one. in a record setting trip by land air sea and others face. olympic torch relay. on the marquee. thousands of drones will soon be swarming across u.s. airspace and are expected to be used for civilian purposes such as far fighting and weather tracking but their presence is still causing concern now let's take a look at the states from above these yellow spots are planes in american airspace and as you can see the skies are already very crowded the total movements every day is around ninety thousand and when unmanned aircraft join this traffic well you can imagine the number is simply going to rise so what that compromise the safety of air traffic what he's got to check on looks for the answer. according to the u.s.
