Ft. Worth company Sky Elements Drone Shows set a new world record with a Fourth of July show last week. They launched more than 1,000 computer-synched drones carrying LED lights to amaze the crowd with a sequence of patriotic American iconography, including Washington Crossing the Delaware, flags, eagles, a cowboy, fighter jets, and a lunar astronaut. The company was scrambling to stage 40 different shows over the holiday weekend, as drone shows are starting to replace traditional fireworks for climate and safety reasons.

So what world record did they set? It was not for the biggest number of drones, nor for length of the show, but for the “largest aerial sentence formed by multirotor/drones.” That’s a fairly niche record, and it may seem anticlimactic, but it gives us an excuse to show you an impressive drone show a week after the holiday. -via Laughing Squid
