800 LED drones create giant 3D airplanes in the sky

The three-dimensional ‘sky sculptures’ created by these 800 LED-equipped drones are stunning. Airplanes, jets, helicopters, and words hovered as points of light over Nanchang, China for the 2019 Nanchang Flight Convention’s closing ceremonies.

This video showcases the sparkling reveals and pulsing rainbows in the sky. The 3D forms are especially impressive as the camera pans slowly around them. Note those river reflections, too.
