A protester in a powered chute interrupted a Euro 2020 match in Munich between Germany and France. He zoomed in over the field and collided with a wire supporting the spidercam, before swinging over the crowd and eventually crashing onto the pitch. The parachute had the words “Kick out oil" and "Greenpeace” written on it.

It's very hard to see in the fast video - but yes, he did have a tiny motor and prop strapped to him.

I bet he turned a greener shade of green when he found out police snipers had him in their sights, and were prepared to shoot him if it was deemed a terrorism attack. :yikes:

 

He can probably thank his lucky stars that it was German police who had him in their sights. If it was America, he'd have been riddled like a colander before he even dropped inside the stadium!

This paramotor bloke is going to do time, nothing surer. It's bad enough that interfered with a European football game (a capital offence, no doubt in the EU) - but he overflew many people, against regulations, damaged camera equipment, and injured some spectators. Talk about the ultimate in idiocy, and an inability to do even basic flight planning.
