Drone nearly hits plane
A Lufthansa plane almost collided with a drone as it approached Warsaw international airport, Polish officials have revealed.
Wa r s a w airport spokesman Przemyslaw Przybylski said the incident occurred yesterday afternoon at around 4pm local time and the drone came within 300ft of the plane, which was arriving f r om Munich.
In Poland, drones are inexpensive and easily available. Regulations largely ban them in a 12-mile radius around airports.
But Mr Przybylski said airport authorities are not able to c heck whether “some idiot does not suddenly decide to fly a drone in front of a landing plane”.
