What a terrible thing it was for a couple in England to be falsely accused and named as the culprits who flew drones over Gatwick Airport. How did the police get it so wrong? If they were not the culprits, they deserve a lot of monetary compensation. A police spokesperson said they could not shoot the drones down because of the risk of stray bullets. Duh, sharp shooters can't shoot straight?
Meanwhile here in Australia firefighting aircraft had to be called off at a bushfire on Tasmania's Bruny Island because of drone intrusion.
Airports and emergency services just need to look at this video. I have put up a video once before of an eagle taking our a drone, but this video is quite professional. How much would it cost to keep an eagle and an eagle keeper on standby? Absolutely nothing compared to the cost of the chaos at Gatwick Airport. Five minutes of suspension of landings and take offs while the eagle took out the drone, and Bob's your Uncle. Night time? That could be some work for an owl.
