Re: Gatwick Airport: Drone sightings cause delays

Just being discussed on the radio apparently 100,000 people have been affected and it will cost the airlines millions.

I hope the police catch the drone operators .

The idiots responsible are probably falling about laughing at all the disruption they are causing. What a joke!

When - and IF - they are caught, they'll be laughing yet again at the 'suspended sentences' our wonderful judges will hand down to them!

These were industrial sized drones, could well have been carrying explosives.
