    Fucksake the raf used to nudge their jet wings against v1 bombs to knock them off course. Yet a drone causes havoc
    This is all a big ploy by the arms industry to sell some expensive * to the government imho

    The easiest solution to this is to have all drone have an overriding function so if deemed a threat they can be automatically disabled to slowly return to owner. This will also lead them to the culprits

    Pure rumours going around but Moroccan intelligence has shared intel in the last few days saying there was people stalking Strasbourg and Charles De Gaulle airports. Wouldn’t surprise me if there is something similar going on there. It could be that or it could be project fear. Surely there is 24hr cams and satellites watching the area. Once the drone is picked up on camera all you have to do is press rewind on your recording to see where it took off from

    if they wanted to catch this drone they would, but drones being a threat to aircraft suits the governments agenda. A would not be surprised if this is infact a ploy by MI5.

    Just use a shotgun and shoot it down or even easier buy themselves drones and smash into them. The fact it’s so trivial makes you wonder whats behind it.

    It was shown on the news last night how (i think Norway ) have trained eagles to bring down drones and looked very effective.

    Fingers crossed. The poor soul asked me do I have whisky at home. She’s dying with the cold and needs a hot Toddie.
