NEWS: Drone flies within feet of landing airliner


As reported by US news station Only on 8 in Las Vegas, a drone flew within just a few feet of a landing passenger aircraft at McCarran International Airport. The footage, which seems to be taken from a screen recorder, possibly from the drone pilot's goggles, reveals a POV shot of the aircraft passing under the drone, which flips over comes within what is possibly just a couple dozen feet. Watch:

We don't know how Only at 8 got hold of the footage, and obviously the pilot remains unnamed, but a statement from the FAA, the US's Federal Aviation Authority, confirmed they were investigating. If caught, the pilot could face a huge fine for dangerous flying, and also a possible prison sentence.

What a fucking idiot.
