BRITAIN – Put away your drones, people! Some idiot with a remote control crashed theirs into a British Airways plane flying as it landed at Heathrow Airport. Though the flight landed safely at Heathrow and all the 132 passengers and five crew onboard were unharmed, this is a good opportunity to talk about drone responsibility.
Thus thought to be the first time in the world a drone has crashed into a commercial jet during landing. It won’t be the last. There are a lot of stupid people out there. And now many of them own drones. While most people will play with their toys in a safe manner, we know that some people won’t. Some people will fly their drones near airports. And that could have even more dangerous consequences than a nut job with a gun.
