A musically choreographed flock of 100 drones will take to the sky on Friday, September 20, at approximately 9 p.m. just east of the iHotel and Conference Center in Champaign. The special aerial performance is in celebration of the 75thanniversary of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois.

“When the department was founded in 1944, unmanned aerial vehicles—drones, were the stuff of science fiction. Today, they’re used in all sorts of applications and represent one of the cutting-edge technologies our researchers and students are working on in the department,” said Professor and Interim Head of the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering Greg Elliott. “As we kick off a year-long celebration of aerospace at Illinois, we are particularly excited to be able to share this professional drone show with the community.”
