Maybe the drones are a case of male humor gone mad ?
Boys will be boys .As a hotel manager one nite had to deal with several guys in their 3's /4's flying drone around the hotel lobby .They'd been drinking and were having the time of their life flying the drones around .As dangerous as that was also thought it was amusing . Had them stop but later came across them flying the drone toys around the huge ballroom .Men !
OMG I hope none of your husbands & sons are the comedian at Gatwick Airport !
On the serious side a friend here who is a security agent at a European embassy thinks this is the work of some jerk playing with the safety of the airline passengers or the Russians .
If you are flying this season please avoid Gatwick !!!

Environmentalist? Russians were also mentioned in a conversation I had with friends last night. The media are saying the drones are of an industrial type - not the ones the average person on the street would be flying!
Moi, I think that the powers that be dont know what they are. What are the implications if they shoot them down. Do they carry anything? It's very scary. If the idea was to cause major disruption, that's worked. People have missed family gatherings, holiday etc. We have heard that cruise ships are stranded and full of passengers who should have disembarked a few days ago. Literally no where to go, hotels are full and airports are overflowing. It's sounds as though aircraft are now taking off and landing, for now anyway.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
