You’d think the pongos could have stalked this drone in a gyrocopter and shotgunned the f!$%er. A whole day with no result. WTF??

There must be several drones or several battery packs to keep these things up in the air for so long.

If they have visual on the thing they should be able to at least shotgun the thing from a two man gyro without endangering anyone.

All I have heard all day is hundreds of experts on how to bring down a drone. If they are all to be believed it is easy to do, based on them seeing some films and playing on the Xbox. It is amazing how many people in this country know everything there is to know about drone technology and how to run airlines and airports.

So whats the possible speed that these things can attain?
What's the rate they can gain altitude?
If its visible or visible on radar what's to stop a spare guy in a helicopter or gyro from using a shotgun on it, or following it back to where it's docking station is?

One started entering my airspace last summer - on the second occasion I got the binos out and attempted to follow it back to base, but no luck in tracking it. Second time I got my 12 bore out and, as quick as a flash, it disappeared. Haven't seen it since.:smirk:

So it's bulls!$%, just put a few crack shots hidden away around the perimeter and they'd soon stop - 00 shot would work well.:thumbup:

Don't ask me, I'm not one of the experts. I claim no knowledge.

So they had considered using shotguns


Gatwick drone shutdown: Police identify 'persons of interest'
Police hunting those responsible for the Gatwick drones chaos have identified "persons of interest", the BBC understands.
The UK's second busiest airport has reopened after drones flying over the airfield closed it for more than a day.
Police are exploring "a number of lines of inquiry", including environmental activism and "high-end criminal behaviour".
Officers are focusing on "likely locations in and around the airport".
They said there was "no evidence" the use of the drones was state-sponsored.
Gatwick's runway reopened Friday morning and 837 flights were scheduled, but there were still delays and cancellations.
Thousands of passengers - including some attending funerals, honeymoons and Christmas reunions with their families - remain stranded at Gatwick.
Steve Barry, Sussex Police assistant chief constable, told the BBC "persons of interest" had been identified as part of the investigation but officers were keeping an open mind over the motive.
While terrorism has been ruled out, environmental activism is one line of inquiry.
Mr Barry said there was no evidence of involvement of a foreign power, but described the drone activity as "really high-end criminal behaviour".
Gatwick Airport - live updates
"This is a really significant criminal offence," he said.
"We're working on the assumption that there was more than one drone operating around Gatwick in the last 48 hours.
"In terms of how many perpetrators, there's a number of lines of inquiry, there's an ongoing investigation, we're pursuing that trying to find out who has been responsible for this really malicious criminal behaviour."
Mr Barry said a drone had last been seen at 22:00 GMT on Thursday.
He added measures to tackle the threat ranged from "technical, sophisticated" options to "detect and mitigate drone incursions" right through to "less sophisticated options" including using shotguns.
He said the drones could have been operated from a fair distance away, but police were focusing on "likely locations in and around the airport".
Gatwick boss Chris Woodroofe said "mitigating measures" from the government and military had given him "confidence to reopen the airport".

Gatwick Airport disruption: Your rights
Chernobyl children land at Gatwick for Christmas
The airport is expected to be "back to normal" by the end of Saturday.
It could not operate while the drones were in flight in case they hit and damaged a plane.
Pilots' union Balpa said it understood detection and tracking equipment had been installed around Gatwick's perimeter and that if the drones reappear the airport would close again.
One family said their Christmas holiday plans had been ruined.
Kevin and Lisa Haynes, and their daughters Aphea, eight, and 11-year-old Jayda were due to go on a cruise, but their flight to Madrid was cancelled, which meant they would miss their connecting plane to Miami.
"What can you do about it?" Mr Haynes, from Wolverhampton, said. "You can understand the airport's view. They've got to ensure health and safety."
Garron Akushie-Stevens, 26, said he was going to miss his uncle's wedding in Ghana.
He had been due to travel as part of a four-strong party for the wedding on Christmas Eve.
Mr Akushie-Stevens, from Neasden, north-west London, said: "He's a close uncle to me.
"It's unacceptable. I feel traumatised, I feel let down and as if I've been thrown to the wolves."
It is illegal to fly a drone within 1km of an airport or airfield boundary and flying above 400ft (120m) - which increases the risk of a collision with a manned aircraft - is also banned.
Endangering the safety of an aircraft is a criminal offence which can carry a prison sentence of five years.

Flights at Gatwick have been suspended again due to a new "suspected drone sighting".

A spokeswoman for the UK's second biggest airport said: "We are just hearing a report of another drone sighting that we are investigating.

"As we look into it we have taken the precaution of suspending flights."

Aircraft have been circling above the area as they are currently unable to land. The sighting reportedly occurred at about 17:10 GMT.

The Ministry of Defence has not confirmed the sighting but Sussex Police said its officers were investigating.

It's not really rocket science this, though with the current level of press hysteria you'd think, along with Brexit, the world was about to end.

My guess is:

1. Young c!$%s f!$%ing about.

2. Disgruntled, ex Gatwick employee looking for revenge, clearly a nutter.

3. Isis nutters testing the water for further disruption and maybe bring down an airliner.

People need to calm down and start thinking cleverly and out smarting these tossers. Or we carry on like a bunch of screeching, looney, snowflakes whilst embarrassing ourselves with our inability to sort this sharpish.:smirk:

If they do catch whoever is doing this, the airlines are going to aggressively sue them to recover costs. It is hightly unlikely they will get the tens of millions it has cost them, but some c!$% is going to be paying this off till the day they die.

ok , on a well known forum

"This is not top secret information but someone I know that is close to me has contacts with an intel agency outside the EU. Their understanding is and you can quote me on this when confirmed, a state is behind this fiasco, it has fooled a group of clowns into doing this by supplying them with the skills and the hardware to disrupt in a cause these clowns believe in. However, the state responsible has a completely different agenda and my understanding is that number 10 has been advised that if you mess in our (the guilty states affairs and it's not Russia)affairs, we can easily stop the UK from functioning normally."
