    Have you seen the reports? What do you think about it? They (British officials) are saying these were large, commercial-size drones, many of them. They aren't calling the incidents terror related so far. I wonder. Seems to be some sort of coordinated effort since the drones are seen each time the runways are reopened. Someone knows what the airport is up to and is having a grand ol' time screwing with them. I'm very concerned about something like this happening here and thus killing the hobby for good. Why... why is the world filled with so many a-holes?
  2. Yes, no, maybe. They can't even say for sure if it was a drone.
  3. Exactly! Sure were quick though to pass judgement on those two unfortunate folks. Detained for two days because the man is a "drone enthusiast" who just happens to live near the airport.
  4. Recently, there have been reports of drones disrupting air traffic in England. This is a concerning issue, as drones pose a potential threat to the safety of aircraft and passengers.

    One of the most significant incidents occurred at Gatwick Airport in December 2018, where over 1,000 flights were disrupted over a three-day period due to drone sightings. This caused significant travel chaos for passengers, as well as economic losses for the airport and airlines.
