Quite right Jos. Tomatoes hadn't been 'invented' then! I expect they would have chucked lumps of...er... ('Now wash your hands')
Iains is right too. Lives have been put in danger. An entire aircraft fully fuelled-up, with 200 or more passengers plus crew would have gone up like a torch, killing everyone (and perhaps people on the ground as well, depending on where it fell)
I reckon this stupid and irresponsible caper must have cost literally millions. Not to mention the distressed passengers, some with young families, having to hang around for hours and hours, sleeping on the floor.
I felt so sorry for one lady they interviewed, who had been sitting upright all night in an uncomfortable chair. She had terminal, fourth-stage cancer which had spread to her bones, and she was very distressed. Poor soul.
A fully effective technological means of disabling these drones should immediately be put in place around all airports.
