Thread Name: BS: Drones
Subject: BS: Drones
Gatwick airport was completely disrupted and all flights cancelled yesterday because of one of those drones being flown beside the runway.
It seemed to take the Police forever to decide exactly what to do (if anything) and eventually the Ministry of Defence was called in to assist.
They still haven't caught the drone-controller, and the airport has re-opened after the entire airspace had been closed and no end of people had to lie on the floor all night, not knowing whether their flights would be re-instated.
How to other countries manage/control drone ownership, and is there not some sort of technology which can intercept, disable/destroy drones being flown around airports?
