I was going to post this only in the Private Pilots section but please read on, if the idiots that tried to do this to a private A/C move four miles south, the consequences could be disastrous.

I was approaching Redhill from the east today and the aircraft in front of me was abeam Edenbridge when he advised Redhill tower he had been fired upon by a red flare. Redhill asked him to repeat what he had told them, (he obviously also couldn’t believe his ears). That is right, someone on the ground near Edenbridge fired what sounds like a very pistol or Maroon at a light Aircraft.

What is this world coming to?

Beware, the world is full of pratts.
