This footage of a drone hitting a wing of an aircraft and ripping into the leading edge is MOST come the twin towers huge 14" steels were literally sliced in two by these same type of leading edge?..

Drones are help to take photos and get videos. Phonthom 4 pro is the best drone for it.

This all comes down to idiots with drones.
I hope they find and arrest these people. They can make all the laws until they run out of paper to printer them on but it is not going to stop them.
It's like making laws to stop people from holding up a convenience store with a gun. The bad guys will find a gun no matter what.
This kind of irresponsible behavior gives us law abiding drone fliers a bad name.
99% of drone flyers obey the law and don't do anything stupid.

Was a UFO. Case closed. Months ago 2 Eurofighters litterally destroyed glasses of a school (full of kids) near Bergamo in Italy scrambling at Mach2 low altitude for intercept a ufo near France/Italy border. Same thing happened AT.LEAST 3 times in Piemonte near Turin. The untellable truth will fuck u up in the ass, fuckin corrupted mass medias.

Gatwick Airport: How many drones Gatwick airport: How can a drone cause 5 months ago   04:31

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said there had been around 40 sightings of what were thought to be a "small number of drones" while the West Sussex airport was closed.

He would not give details of what measures had been put in place, but told BBC Breakfast some of them were "military capabilities".

He added: "There are a range of measures which are there today which should give passengers confidence that they are safe to fly."
