NOTE: This article was for April Fools Day and was completely made up. 

It was supposed to be a typical flight for Dr. Lance Clark’s digital media arts drone.

“I was just taking some rad shots of campus from 200 feet in the air,” he said. “I don’t know what happened.”

According to Daniel Monroe, a student in Clark’s Intro to DMA Paper Writing class, there was a loud explosion and the DMA drone immediately burst into flames.

“It was crazy!” he said. “Something shot our $200 drone right out of the sky.”

Little did the class know that there was an official military-grade drone hovering over Huntington, Ind. Clark’s DMA drone broke the 100 foot elevation limit and thus posed as a security threat, according to an AP report.

The remnants of the drone are believed to be in Lake Sno Tip. Search and rescue teams are continuing to search the murky waters for any salvageable material.

“It is a bummer,” Clark said. “The drone cost the department $200, and I highly doubt the United States government will reimburse the university for it.”

President Sherilyn Emberton, Ed.D., will be contacting Governor Mike Pence soon, after the controversy surrounding the Religious Freedom Restoration Act dies down.

Until then, the university will tap into the leftover money from the ice skating rink project.
