The pilot who flew a drone near Monday’s Anzac Day commemorations in Mandurah has defended the flyover, saying he was commissioned by the Mandurah RSL to record the last time veterans would march across the Old Mandurah Bridge.
Colin Bartley, from the aerial photography business Sky Pixels, said he was honoured to be asked to record the Mandurah Anzac Day services as his great-grandfather was on of the first to land on the shores of Gallipoli with the 11th Battalion.
Mr Bartlety said the business was approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the drone was kept the required distance from the services.
