Perhaps I expect better from one of the more respected members of the ‘Fourth Estate:-

Perhaps we can use these drones as a potential target for the new METEOR missile? Scramble Q1 from CBY and see if he can see from BVR? (Sorry)

Aw Geez Ya'll!

Put a shotgun on a drone....and do the Counter Drone intercept thing.....job done!

Oh...sorryo....no guns allowed....just do the Kamikaze thing with a Drone v Drone....problem sorted.

Or....how's about an RAF Puma on standby with some Lads aboard with Lasso's.

Perhaps a Plod Team that tracks down the Drone and when the operator is apprehended they hold a public flogging by the Beefeaters at the Tower of London!

Plumbing is about as relevant as most of the rest of the crap I'm reading about this incident today!

Used to be something called the Bird Control Unit. A few ounces of No 6 should sort it.

Happy Christmas to all except our American cousins; and Happy Holidays to them.

The V1 was powered by a pulse jet. It was NOT a rocket!

My only real surprise is it's taken so long for someone to do something like this.

Anybody any ideas about what military capabilities might actually help? ( Apart from a rock squadron “ dominating” the surrounding countryside!)

This kind of threat has been a problem in hot and sandy places for a few years now. Except there, they had improv grenades/explosives attached.

There are ways to deal with drones electronically.

The import of this kind of threat is a hard problem.

“We expect better of the fourth estate..”. So anyone, foreign power or no-mark attention seeker, can shut down any of our airports at will ....and we expect better of the press??

If they catch these little barstewards then 'Restorative Justice' would suggest a hefty fine + x00 hours spent working in 'customer services' at Gatquick as a suitable punishment
