      You have already declared them guilty?

        Naturally, assuming that they are found guilty after due process of law. This kind of activity must be stamped on hard with substantial prison sentences.
        If you think about it, just 5 people could bring the country to a standstill by flying drones over Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and Manchester at the same time.
        Members of my family were directly affected by these Gatwick assholes, costing them a couple of thousand pounds and a cancelled Christmas short break. They don’t have much money and had saved for 3 years to make their trip so right now I’m ready to remove body parts were I to get my hands on the assholes who did this !

          Put away the flaming rakes, fellow peasants. They weren't the drones we're looking for. They have been cleared from suspicion and released.

            Whoops. I call for more regulation.
            Les règles de l'aviation de base découragent de longues périodes de dur tirer vers le haut.

              I am starting to be glad I am retired for the first time! Well maybe the second or third time.

                What? Do you plane to retire a second time? (I'm joking)

                  It wouldn’t completely surprise me if there had been no drone at all. We have no proof of anything other than sightings by members of the public or airport staff, and this website has been rightly sceptical of “witness” evidence in the past. Not impressed so far by the skills of the airport authorities and local law enforcement.

                    Oh well, on to plan B.

                      The dumbass buzzed the tower and held it there blinking its little lights at them. So we can rule out geniuses. Now they know the make and model of the drone, which, as it turns out, was only sold to a small number of people. Start building the gallows.

                        I was referring to other things that I do not miss. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year Gabriel.

                          I don’t think we do know any of that with actual verifiable certainty. I mean, regarding buzzing the tower, make and model, and all that.

                            Well I wasn't there, but the news doth tell me that it hovered very near and the tower personnel gave description enough to nail the make/model and that is it not a wildly popular one.
