In honor of Thanksgiving, the folks at Utah Aerials decided to take a quadricopter and turn it into a turkey. The idea was to have the turkey-copter drop pies on unsuspecting passersby.
The stunt is documented below, but it brings back memoeies of the WKRP in Cincinnati episode "Turkeys Away." In that episode of the late-70s sitcom, the station drops live turkeys out of a helicopter over a shopping center as a Thanksgiving Day giveaway. Unfortunately, domestic turkeys cannot fly. Arthur Carlson, station manager, later remarked, "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
Watch the videos, of both the turkey-copter and the WKRP episode.
