The Portuguese Navy Failed Very Hard At Launching A Drone

This is not how to do drones.

1. The Portuguese Navy tried to launch an experimental drone in a ceremony at Lisbon Naval Base on Wednesday. It… didn’t quite work out.

2. Flawless.

Defence Minister José Pedro Aguiar-Branco, who was at the drone’s launch ceremony, commented that it showed why it was “necessary to invest a lot in training”.

3. Let’s look at that from another angle.

4. Man dressed as a ninja throws plane in harbour. Textbook.

In fairness, as the video shows, the UAV did eventually take flight on a second attempt.

5. Well done everybody.
