ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION The U.S. presidential nominees soared to new heights on Thursday (September 15) as replicas of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton flew through the air over a beach in southern California. The motorised effigies, called 'Identifiable Flying Objects' by their creator, were outfitted with foam heads in each of their likenesses. Clinton was depicted as a witch on a broomstick. Republican Trump's effigy dropped money as it flew overhead. Otto Dieffenbach's company, Flyguy Promotions, specialises in creating flying objects for promotional events.
