It Has Finally Happened - A Plane Has Hit A Drone

While drones are a lovely piece of technology, they are often misused and prove a danger to not only their owner but the public at large. Two years ago a drone was hacked and it resulted in athletes at an event being injured since then we have constantly been warned about drones and the dangers that could happen if someone used them irresponsibly. The time has finally come when a plane has hit a drone, with no injuries we were fortunate.

Heathrow has had some close calls with drones before, this time, the plane is reported to have stuck an object, reported as possibly a drone, as it approached the airport near London. The plane was flying in from Geneva with 132 passengers and five crew when the mysterious object stuck the front of the plane.

While British Airways, the company behind the plane in question, have stated that the aircraft was “fully examined by our engineers and it was cleared to operate its next flight”, you can help but fear that this could have gone worse.

With near misses constantly happening thanks to drone users ignoring common sense and flying their craft not only near but in front and around areas with heavy airplane traffic, it was only a matter of time before something happened and fortunately, nothing bad came of this incident but the police are still looking for the drones owner.

    Aeroplane* If you’re talking about stuff in the UK, at least spell it properly whilst you are fear mongering.
