Group Develops Turkey Quadricopter to Pummel Pedestrians with Pumpkin Pies

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.

The pie didn't look like it was good Pie. It looked a little nasty like Inspector said.

Lucky that they decided to only drop the pie on someone who knew it was on the way down. In my neck of the woods, they may never have been heard from again if they'd have dropped pie on a Red-Neck Country Boy by surprise. (most of them have acreage and backhoes to bury you with)
