Less than a week ago, we posted about a possible drone collision with an incoming flight at an airport in Mexico. Now, we read about confirmed idiot sightings at Gatwick Airport in London, England. According to the BBC, at least two drones were spotted flying near the airport, which prompted them to ground all flights and shut the place down.
This shutdown has stranded around 10,000 passengers, with a further 6,000 diverted, and 4,000 on planes that didn’t take off, says Mail Online. Many were forced to sleep on the planes in which they were trapped. Up to 100,000 people are facing disruption today.
