misc. sim Gatwick Airport: Drone sightings trigger disruption

Recommended Posts

Courtesy of BBC news, here is another report showing yet more disruption to commercial aviation caused by drones. The sooner they find a solution to irresponsible and downright dangerous drone flying the better:


Passengers at one of the UK's busiest airports have been warned to expect further flight disruption after drones were seen over the airfield.

Gatwick's runway remains closed after two of the devices were seen nearby, sparking a string of delays and diversions on Wednesday evening.

Outbound flights were grounded and incoming planes redirected - with some landing in Paris and Amsterdam.
Passengers due to travel have been told to check the status of their flight.


More details including the misery passengers endured on diverted flights are available via the link below.
