Could this be ANN’s next corporate aircraft?

Customers can choose between two models: the BBJ 777-8 and BBJ 777-9. The BBJ 777-8 offers the longest range of 11,645 nautical miles.

The TARU provides specialized investigative equipment and tactical support to all bureaus within the NYPD, from officers on patrol to the Emergency Service Unit (ESU).

AMA Drone Report 12.06.18: No Drone Zone Nonsense, FAA's 'Buzzy', Airport Probs

Also: FAA Exec Appointment, Drone Use Standards, Censys BVLOS, Woolsey Fire Recovery Drones

The signs say drone flights are prohibited within five miles of an airport, and refers potential drone users either to the airport authority or the US Forest Service. The airport website has a link to "Report" drone flights, which are referred on to Deborah Abingdon, Sedona’s airport manager. But the FAA says that airport operators cannot ban drones, according to FAA regional spokesman Ian Gregor. Getting a drone for the holidays? The FAA's “Buzzy the Drone” will help you learn the do’s and don'ts of being a responsible drone operator and flying you
