The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Lon­don: A Bri­tish Air­ways pas­sen­ger air­craft was hit by what most likely was a drone on Sun­day as it pre­pared to land at Bri­tain’s Heathrow Air­port, po­lice said. Bri­tish po­lice have is­sued warn­ings in the past about the dan­ger of the pub­lic use of re­motely con­trolled drones near air­ports and other sen­si­tive sites. Bri­tish Air­ways said in a state­ment that the air­craft, which had 132 cus­tomers and five crew on board, was “fully ex­am­ined by our en­gi­neers and it was cleared to op­er­ate its next flight”.
