    Is someone going to come out and say that this is a joke? If so I'm certainly not laughing.



    The claims and exaggerations keep getting worse. I'd be about as likely to believe that a pilots narrowly missed encounter with flying bigfoot.



    And if you look at top rated comments you will notice that people are buying this and calling for the banning of the hobby... They'll believe anything it seems.

    did you see that after that reported 'drone near miss' at Heathrow, they came out a few days later and admitted it was probably a plastic bag ?

    Maybe they should also call for a mass culling of seagulls

    Yeah, and three "drone" impacts before that that later have had bird entrails recovered. Waiting to see what this will be tagged as, though as it is a miss we may never know. Looks like the pilot gets to start blaming "drones" for any type of pilot error. Kinda like "missing a dog" every time anyone had a car accident between 16 and 21 hahaha.
