    So aircraft are so light and fragile that they are susceptible to a drone, yet they can destroy massive buildings?

    Maybe if you didn’t make a big deal about it and kept it on the DL for a bit you’d catch the fucker.

    It wasn’t a drone, but a UFO.

    Crash a drone into the drone. You fight fire with fire. You use a criminal mindset to catch a criminal. So use a drone to follow the drone back to the pilot or crash into it and knock it out of the sky.

    Fake…what’s the real story…

  13. BeNJaH_4eva on March 11, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Fake drone sighting to implement new laws. Next laws will be for people owning birds, pigeons and ducks that could fly

  14. oeo1977 on March 11, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    If it’s true that it’s a "drone" then why haven’t they brought in a drone hunter, which is a drone that nets down other drones. Also, nobody has shown a single bit of Evidence.

  15. Maikl Тритон on March 11, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Probably Putin flew again with gas "Novice" to sow horror in Britain, but the valiant armed forces of Britain repelled the attack!)))))

  16. Nick Romano on March 11, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I’m just imagining that this is all part of a bigger plan like for a heist a group needs to shut down the airport so they send a drone over.

  17. Drone World on March 11, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    The Drone’s won’t take off in restricted Air Space this is very weird.

  18. Dawn Gilbert on March 11, 2021 at 11:03 pm

  19. The Blade on March 11, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Terrorist testing the waters.

  20. USER 005 on March 11, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Overreaction

  21. Phil Everything on March 11, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    " Honey look I’m flying through the airport "

  22. Donna Green on March 11, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I have seen drones when our Gov first experimented and I can’t believe they became public. In America we would have shot it down.

  23. Lyrical Gammster on March 11, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    FakeNews

  24. N on March 11, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    WAKE UP, WE’RE BEING LIED TOO. What the fuck, officials say this officials say that, all I know is this is official bullshit.. 36 hours, for “drones” you dumb people that believe it was drones need to stop being sheep. The military doesn’t get called in for 2 drones, im sure the police force can deal with that lmfao. Such a shame some people are so stupid.

  25. justkiddin08 on March 11, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Yea right!! The police, the military with alot of fire power for a drone? Why dont they just say it, a UFO want stop fucking with them lol

  26. Alexander Sheppard on March 11, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    This is why drones need to be banned.

  27. WaTsNoTgUdD on March 11, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    In the USA we have technology that can disable drones. Yet our allies dont have this tech

  28. Sword of the Spirit on March 11, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    My hic neighbor shot down a drone in about 2 minutes and yet the military that has jamming capabilities had trouble…these drones must have some powerful batteries …give me a break …everyone knows this is a bogus story…

  29. Justin Mitchell on March 11, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Kind of an epic prank

  30. Donna Green on March 11, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I mean the United States Government.

  31. Clement Lo on March 11, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I was always wanted to get one…. But never did. Because idiot like this! One day they going to ban even owning one!

  32. eye c everything on March 11, 2021 at 11:27 pm

  33. Lion Heart on March 11, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    FAKE NEWS IT’S A ALIEN CRAFT NOT A BLOODY DRONES ALIEN SPACE CRAFT GOVERNMENT FAKE NEWS

  34. brian on March 11, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Airports should be equipped with Drone Jammers , there are different types including military. The jammers have a military level technology unavailable to the public. It should be possible to locate where the drone is being controlled from to arrest the individual.

  35. david corday on March 11, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Please a drone don’t drones have software in them to keep that from happening. plus shutting down a airport plus military involved something seems a little fishy

  36. QCM on March 11, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Lol shot it down smh

  37. Zoltan Gremsperger on March 11, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    just put a signal descrambler around airports and that’s it. I don’t understand what’s the problem?! making rough drone legislation not gonna stop an insane idiot to fly. just take a look at the school shootings (or any terrorist attacks). they kill people with guns, while you can buy guns anywhere. BTW birds caused lots of plane crashes; so what you gonna do?! kill all the birds?!

  38. Lee Kirkman on March 11, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    It was ufo’s two orbs

  39. J H on March 11, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Unbelievable! How many drones are there to cripple the airport? I guess they’re operated by Russians. LoL. Poor British.

  40. Tate Craft on March 11, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    He will not divide us!

  41. Empress Lilith on March 11, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Nope. Not a drone

  42. Raghavendra Vaspula on March 11, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    All it takes is a single drone..

  43. Donald Glover on March 11, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Drones have become a little crazy. Just go out in your backyard at night and you’ll see a ton just flying by creepin around.

  44. Godson CODson on March 11, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Drug smugglers …lol

  45. Seti Michael Maxwell on March 11, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Ahhhh you almost had me at first. Very funny!

  46. GetWebLeads on March 11, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Not Drones! UFO’s

  47. tumarfa on March 11, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Perhaps it’s an employee at Luton, or some other minor airport who’s been sent out to disrupt Gatwick so that some of the incoming planes will be diverted to their own airport? 🙂

  48. John Smith on March 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Lol a country that want to fight Russia can’t even deal with drones. How are you going to fucking deal with a nuclear bomb?

  49. New Notification on March 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    They wont find the drone pilot. It uses rumba technology to fly back to its solar charging station and then resumes its pre-programed flights. Yup just like the flior sweeping rumba only diffurant.

  50. Adrian Fell on March 11, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Surprised they haven’t blamed Russia yet!
