Resource Group’s Unmanned Aviation Services delivery team filmed a 105 light gun being fired from the summit of Snowdon in a celebration to mark 300 years of history for the Royal Regiment of Artillery. They filmed the action with a DJI Inspire 1 drone and the footage was shared live with those on the ground.
The gun fire took place early on the 13th May was one of the last stages in a yearlong event called ‘Ubique 300’, a west to east circumnavigation relay of the globe that started in Woolwich mid 2015 and will finish at the regimental home in Larkhill this year.
Mark Jones, head of service delivery was joined by Resource Group’s own TA Sgt Liarne Fox and WO2 Paul McCarthy. Resource Group was chosen to support the event due to its demonstrable expertise within the industry and close relationships with the TA in the Newport area.
The gun arrived at the summit of Snowdon via the train on the evening of 12th May and was fired very early in the morning on the 13th to ensure minimum disruption and risk for the general public.
