Drone Formations Play Star Role in Singapore New Year's Eve Display

Revelers in Singapore were treated to an innovative fireworks display on New Year’s Eve, which incorporated the use of 500 drones flying in different formations.

The drones were pre-programmed for their displays of aerial acrobatics, the Straits Times reported in the run-up to the event. They flew in various shapes before forming a clock face for the countdown to midnight. Credit: Ryan Foo via Storyful
