    You know when you get addicted to lying you can’t help your self admit to it aliens did it

    A coverup of an unrelated threat, or a lie to clear public opinion to support draconian regulatory change. Most drone batteries run flat in about ten minutes, and Police since denied any evidence of drone presence. If you want truth look here https://youtu.be/TRHJkvuQPG8

    whatever this was, drones are inevitably gonna be the future boys. drone delivery is not here yet but it probably will in the future. atleast, thats just my opinion which nobody cares about xd

    Life isn’t simple, people; but a lot of people are. Don’t view this incident with hindsight – that’s meaningless. I’m writing this Comment just a few minutes after the announcement was made. View the ‘attack’ in real-time and respond accordingly. Real time. No hindsight, no smartarse conspiracy theory crap, no "We hate the government and they’re staging it to punish us noble quad pilots … " nonsense. Real time, with 100,000 people passing through the airport.
    So, in actual, on the spot terms, here goes. In at least two reports the drone/quad/hex-copter was described as ‘larger than hobby-sized’. So a small industrial machine is zipping about an airport. Shoot it down, scream the gun nuts. Whoa, there! A large drone is still a tiny target if its pilot has several spotters with camera phones to help him and he wants to be difficult. So where is it? On a roof. No, in the long grass. No, it’s – somewhere. Gatwick is vast. Where’s the pilot? Is this a three man team using long range FPV? Don’t know. So you still want to shoot it down, right, just like you do in your video games. Great. Fill the air with lead. That’ll help. Yay. So where is it? Don’t know. Aw, just fire wildly in all directions and you’re bound to hit something. As long as the drone’s not been parked against part of the terminal or under a £20,000,000 airliner loaded with (precious, probably blonde, blue-eyed USA cheerleader-type) passengers and 200 tons of fuel. And what’s the drone carrying? Just a camera so some brain-dead 12-year-old Butthead clone can post a "Huh-huh… that was cool!" video on YouTube? Or a camera plus enough high explosive to blow a hole in a plane’s fuel tank? Hmm. Someone with FPV goggles could fly it straight into the terminal building and trigger an incendiary device. Or deploy a biological weapon. Or release nerve gas. That’d be fun. OK, don’t shoot it down yet. Just… er… well, do something…you know, great. Um, yeah.

    But wait! Is it also part of a co-ordinated attack? Misdirection has been common military strategy for over 4,000 years. So this drone could be a decoy to keep the security forces busy whilst 2 other decoy drones at Heathrow airport provide a secondary distraction so that the two guys loading baggage into cargo holds at Gatwick can take the opportunity to carry out phase 3 of the attack, the main part, which is to smuggle 45 lbs of semtex high explosive on board the two flights bound for New York. That’d give Trump something to moan about.
    So who knows what’s going on? I don’t. You don’t, either, so please, don’t mock with the benefit of hindsight – it really doesn’t help.

    What a joker Hahaha

  11. Josh p on March 6, 2020 at 9:40 am

    You’re one of the brainwashed idiot masses if you actually believe this ridiculous "drone" narrative. so many holes in this government approved ‘theory’…

    Government reckons will imprisonment aliens

  15. Justin Dougherty on March 6, 2020 at 9:47 am

    Easy fix if drone manufacturers and authorities work together. An automated drone take over system for places where unauthorized drones cant go. Crosses the zone into the no fly zone a master signal takes the drone back out and forces it to land regardless of input from the drone operator. Problem solved

  16. space i s water on March 6, 2020 at 9:47 am

    Pure lies as normal from the bbc

  17. 138boris on March 6, 2020 at 9:47 am

    Fake news.
    There was no drone.

  18. Old Fart with a Gopro on March 6, 2020 at 9:48 am

    Photographic proof please

  19. Aldo McG on March 6, 2020 at 9:49 am

    Omg….what a load of shit….how predictable,
    1….the media start a major news report that a drone or drones have been up in the air for hours
    2….the army cant even locate the drones…..not good if they cant find it ……what chance do we have if it was something more serious than a drone
    3….media name a couple so it MUST be them its doing it
    4….media wreck couples life as we now find out its not them
    5….gatwick police now say maybe there wasnt a drone
    6…all is forgotten about drone incident
    7….media go onto another major incident that will be made to be very very interesting for public interest
    8…. bbc,itn,cnn, and the newspapers all get a good story headline,make money,while ruining a couples life without getting their facts first……if I were that couple id start a crowd fund and go after the first media group that published their names
    I have now noticed that reporting a news story is so full of false statements and fabrications that are now becoming so so predictable
    What a disgrace……dont buy papers and dont listen to the news,instead get your info from online sources that are there at the time and possibly with mobile footage
    Rant over,merry Christmas x

    fake news. most likely a ufo.

  21. Lee Andrews on March 6, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Absolute JOKE the world must be laughing at this COUNTRY a WEAK WEAK goverment that can NOT lead

  22. Bill Moore on March 6, 2020 at 9:51 am

    Brit government fiddle, a country where you need a licence to get a licence, to keep civil servants employed doing everything wrong!

  23. iTrick on March 6, 2020 at 9:52 am

    Shutting down an entire international airport + calling in the police and military because of ONE person with a drone?
    Since when do airports completely shutdown because of one person? that is unheard of, there is something else going on.

  24. Lazarus Issass on March 6, 2020 at 9:53 am

    No evidence of drones whatsoever. Police claim to have found remains of damaged drone but produced no photos. They also interview a couple for 36 hours then release them without charge, having ruined their reputation in the press.
    We now have the real reason for the unproven drone claims which is the introduction, entirely predictable, of yet more draconian legislation, in this instance governing the public’s use of drones. It’s all imo about state control in every area of national life.
    Most videos posted on YouTube about the false (imo) claim of drone flying shutting Gatwick airport are posted by the British intelligence controlled BBC.
    Sick.

  35. Bert Visscher on March 6, 2020 at 10:11 am

    If you’re interested in how to take a drone down without any interaction required with the pilot, please watch this video:

  44. Johnny Hicks on March 6, 2020 at 10:20 am

    It wasent drones it was 4 ufos but news media was told not to report it.

  45. Maikl Тритон on March 6, 2020 at 10:21 am

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

  46. starbattle008 on March 6, 2020 at 10:25 am

    the simplest solution to tackle the drone problems is ban them from public use so it’s only the army that uses them instead simple

  47. Joe Ruiz on March 6, 2020 at 10:27 am

    Did they ever find the drone?
