Chinese state media released video showing a spectacular “New Year’s Eve drone show” along Shanghai’s famous riverfront the Bund. But while the video was dated December 31, 2019, spectators who were on the Bund at the time of the countdown to 2020 said there were no drones in sight.EHang, one of China’s largest drone makers that managed the display, said the video was filmed earlier on December 28, 2019, for a show to be broadcast on a Shanghai TV station on New Year’s Eve.

    The man behind the secret tracker I have on my husbands phone was so smooth he was unaware about it for months, I have no worry asking about his whereabouts, all i have to do is login into a portal which is linked to his phone remotely. I can comfortably read his text messages, call logs,Instagram, Facebook , WhatsApp messages, including his deleted file & messages in real time access. It was no doubt exactly worth it and having to know he was unaware about what we did was the best part. I’m secured while I get real proofs of his secret acts from his phone without touching it… By the help of KIRYEHACK ON INSTAGRAM THIS WAS A BIG SHOCK TO ME SO I HAVE TO RECOMMEND HIS QUALITY SERVICE HIS WHATSAPP NUMBER+1 (858) 215-5068 happy new year all

    Imagine the military power of China with drones.

  9. Alfred Wang on April 22, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    The CPC/PLA should secretly co-operate with all of such related companies to design their machines/planes/drones to become modifiable/combat-ready when required.

    Could be worse. They could have CGI’d everything. Kudos for using the real things

  11. Tim on April 22, 2021 at 10:23 pm

  17. Pak Ogah on April 22, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Year 2020 also a mystery since there’s pandemic, natural disasters, "war", etc

  18. cody56011 on April 22, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Fake news by western media. Now US media, Facebook n other social platform keep removing n taking down videos about us rioters n deadly shootings throughout us by police . Blame china of violation of Human Rights but sweeping it out shot under the carpet.

  19. Lap on April 22, 2021 at 10:47 pm

  21. Örebro Krönikan on April 22, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    And that’s why you never, under any circumstances should trust the Chinese…..

  25. Robin on April 22, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Banning public countdowns instead of developing proper crowd control measures. Classic China.

  26. ragnorock cookie on April 22, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    know thats what we should be doing for new years its a lot more safer and environmentally safer

  27. Tünde Bartalos on April 22, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I was there… and the news was all about this never happened event. First we thought we must have stood the wrong side of the river, but we had to realize.. it is just CHINA…!
    PS: They even shut down the city (building) lights at 00:30am, so everybody could go to sleep with no public transportation since they simply do not operate after 11:00pm in the world 3rd biggest city 😉

  28. T Jack on April 22, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    So what i liked it because the respect of people who died in covid 19. Even sweden we had no fireworks…we should respect for those who lost their loving

    Thank you China for the Spectacular New Year’s Event..
    Can & Should Learn from China as to it’s ok if no FireWorks can be replaced by Drones.
    Only if we take heads out of how to make killing machines we become dum minded.
    & not think Alternative Idea’s like China.

  35. breebreemusic on April 22, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I’ve always wanted to celebrate New Years in Shanghai. I hope I can in the future once we have Covid under control.

  36. uhhhfran on April 22, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    This is the worst New Years fail ever

  37. putss on April 22, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Hello corona

  38. youngkreisler on April 22, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Fake news.

  39. Tommy C's Cat on April 22, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    But it never happened on the 27th or the 28th either. We would have seen it or someone else would have seen it. I was outside both nights, repeatedly, and nothing.
    So I ask and ask and ask everyone I could. Nobody, not even the two workers I know who work outside right there saw or heard anything.
    It’s just weird.
