‘Drone’ Hits BA Plane

A BA flight from Geneva, carrying 132 passengers and 5 crew members, was hit by what is believed to have been a drone on Sunday as it approached Heathrow Airport.

If confirmed, it’s thought to be the first incident of its kind in the UK. A police investigation has been launched to find out what exactly hit the passenger plane. So far no arrests have been made.

After safely landing the plane, the pilot reported an object striking the front of the Airbus 320. A BA spokesman said: ‘Our aircraft landed safely, was fully examined by our engineers and it was cleared to operate its next flight.’
