BEA investigates drone crash

I guess it was bound to happen...

The BEA is investigating this drone crash.

I believe it's a first for a major agency ?

Good catch. Seems it was "in the air", so to speak...

A drone hit the front of a bus near Inverness. www.inverness-courier.co.uk. Today's edition 2/8/2019.
Traffic hits would seem more likely and potentially perhaps more dangerous than aircraft hits.

Was there

Must have been a relatively small one as the crowd of 50,000 was well packed.
Pyrotechnics, [email protected], cannons firing paper streamers and a lot of boom boom, if you pardon the french.
Doesn't surprise me.
