Some seen in Tampines within 5km of airbase; gadgets may pose threat to planes, say experts
On weekends, an otherwise obscure field in Tampines comes alive. Scores of people troop in, set up their gadgets and engage in their favourite weekend activity.
What they are doing, though, is illicit. They are flying drones.
This is despite the fact that the field in Tampines Avenue 10 is off-limits to drones unless users have permits. It is within 5km of Paya Lebar Air Base and drones are deemed a potential threat to aircraft.
