Kurt The CyberGuy Gets It Wrong

Kurt The CyberGuy got it wrong on Fox and Friends about a drone hitting a British Airways jet above Heathrow Airport in April. On his website, and on-air, he continued the unwarranted drone hysteria with this.  “Maybe that’s why a British Airways pilot is feeling relieved after landing his Airbus 320 safely at Heathrow airport following a collision with a recreational drone while on final approach.  The first known drone versus aircraft collision.”

Wrong.

British Transport minister Robert Goodwill told a House of Lords committee investigating the incident that the reported drone strike has not been confirmed. It was the local police force that tweeted that they had a report of a drone striking an aircraft. “And indeed the early reports of a dent in the front of the plane were not confirmed – there was no actual damage to the plane and there’s indeed some speculation that it may have even been a plastic bag or something.”
