How do you get video of a ship that’s partially sunken and tilted to one side? CBS’s answer: a drone (VIDEO).
The producer of a 60 Minutes story on the Costa Concordia that aired this week used a drone to get to some hard-to-reach spots. CBS hosts the video from 60 Minutes Overtime, which shows how a story is put together behind the scenes.
By current regulations, this isn’t something that could have taken place in the United States. FAA regulations do not permit commercial use of drones at any altitude, and even news programs that air on commercial stations are defined as commercial use.
