You can't fly a drone near an airport... or can you? The drone incursion at Gatwick Airport last December was clearly a reckless and deliberate act of sabotage, the consequences of which brought misery to the travelling public and burdened the airport and airlines alike with significant expense and logistic upheaval.  The cost to the UK has been put in excess of £50m.
