The Drone crisis in the airport: Mysterious backers may be far away

There has been chaos at Gatwick Airport since Wednesday evening, where a large drone suddenly flew into the airport and stopped all air traffic for over two hours.

hundreds of thousands of people have been hit by delays and cancelled flights due to dronernes banter, but on Friday morning, it seems to, that they keep away.

It is one or more unknown perpetrators, who are behind the drone flights, and the authorities are now working feverishly to find out who is behind the sabotagen.

the Perpetrators can, however, be several miles away, and therefore it is not quite easy to find them. It tells Mathias Flindt, who is the president of the trade association Drone Denmark.

- It can be really difficult to find out where the drone is controlled from. It is this that is the biggest challenge in it here, he says.

- ordinary hobbydroner can be controlled in a few kilometers of distance, but more advanced drones can reach even further away, saith the further from the president.

the Authorities in England believe that there is talk about a homemade or converted drone.

The british authorities has worked feverishly to solve the mystery, which is also where the military has been inside of the action. Authorities say it is not terror, but rather 'a deliberate act'.


When it comes to hunt drones, there are some different elements you can take into use, explains Mathias Flindt.

Like the uk authorities have considered, it is possible to shoot it down. But as it can be dangerous in an airport, there are also other options, underlines the president.

- firstly, you can through the technology track (track, red.) the drone. At some point it will run out of power or fuel to the home and left up.

- It will probably be in the vicinity of the person who controls the drone. So you can catch both at the same time, he says.

in Addition, there is also the opportunity to shoot a net over the drone and sabotage its route of flight. But according to the president it is generally difficult, because the drones can disappear just as quickly as they had come.

The two drones were first spotted flying around over the airport around the clock 21 on Wednesday night. The airport opened again for a short time Thursday, but had to quickly shut once more, since the drones again appeared in the area.

As droneejer should not be recorded, and therefore there is not a list of the drones that are in the area, says Mathias Flindt.

- in fact, It can be enormously difficult to find, he points out.

According to the british legislation, the drones not be flown in the vicinity of aircraft or airports; or in a height of 122 meters from the ground.
