Time Magazine Makes History with 950 Drones in the Northern California Sky

On May 3, the New York City-based magazine joined with Intel in Folsom to put 958 drones in the air in order to mimic the iconic cover of Time Magazine

Time Magazine went to great lengths to get the perfect cover photo for their upcoming drone issue, and anyone near the cover shoot in Northern California got a show for the ages.

On May 3, the New York City-based magazine joined with Intel in Folsom to put 958 drones in the air in order to mimic the iconic cover of Time Magazine. A photo of the event will be placed on the cover of their upcoming issue, aptly named “The Drone Age,” which will be released on June 11.





It was the largest drone show in the history of the United States.




Collaboration for the cover shoot involved Time Magazine, Intel’s drone light show team, Astraeus Aerial Cinema Systems and L.A. Drones. The 958 drones in Folsom stretched over 300 feet tall with only about 5 feet between each one, which ran the risk of collision when paired with the wind.
