Mind the drones: 'Near-miss' with plane near London's Shard
from CTV News
A drone just missed hitting an A320 plane flying above the Shard skyscraper in central London in July — one of several near-misses involving passenger jets in Britain, a new report said. The plane was approaching Heathrow Airport on July 18 and flying at nearly 5,000 feet (1,525 metres) when the pilot spotted a 50-centimetre (20-inch) drone off the right flight deck window. The UK Airprox Board report says "chance played a major part" in avoiding a collision and called it a "very near-miss."
