An investigation is under way after a small aircraft believed to be a drone hit the front of a plane landing at Heathrow airport today.
The report was made to Heathrow Airport police at 1 pm today from a British Airways flight landing from Geneva Europe. The flight landed safely at the new Heathrow Terminal 5 building. Inquiries believed a drone struck the front of the plane as it was landing at the airport. No arrests have been made and enquiries are continuing. This is now the second drone related incident within a week and it is very clear much more needs to be done and urgently.
