Drone Shadow 007: The Lavender Hill Drone

Installed 26th June 2014 for "After a War", a weekend of events at the Battersea Arts Centre, London, in association with London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT).

The drone is a Thales Watchkeeper WK450, currently in use by the British Army, and flying from Aberporth in West Wales. It is based on the Elbit Hermes 450, an Israeli UAV armed with Hellfire missiles, which has seen regular service in the Gaza Strip and the 2006 Lebanon War. Other air forces which operate the Hermes include Azerbaijan, Brazil, Georgia, Mexico, Singapore, and the United States Border Patrol.

Installed by James Bridle and Grace Jones.
