This is the reason stupid people shouldn’t be allowed to have nice things.
who in their right mind would want to put 130+ lives at risk by flying their drone into the flight path of any aircraft. Probably the same idiots that point lasers at aircraft, which has been a problem in itself in recent months, forcing a Virgin Atlantic flight to land immediately after take off.
The most frustrating aspect about this drone strike is that most of us knew it was inevitable. Fortunately it’s ended without impact and the flight was able to return to duties fairly promptly, but how many more near misses, of repeat incidents like this do we need to go through until some drone fanatic takes it too far and causes a serious incident.
What are your thoughts? Have you got suggestions on how to combat this sort of activity?
