Are there any photos or videos of the drones at Gatwick?

The question asks for photos, and if no photos exist, asks about the reliability of eyewitnesses/news.

Is it on-topic, or should it be closed?


1 Answer 1


IMO it should be closed; it is off-topic for more than 1 reason:

  1. Resource finding, if no photo(s), then:
  2. Opinion based, and lastly:
  3. Not aviation related – whaaaaat?!

It is an event, that happened to an airport, that disrupted air travel.

The same event can happen to a sensitive government building, disrupt road traffic, and also make the news.

The question revolves around an event and its related conspiracies/theories, which makes it a better fit for Skeptics.SE.

It is of no value to aviation. A better question (for Aviation.SE) that can stem from such an event can be: how do airport scan for and protect against drones?

Two years later, it was asked: How do airports detect drones? :)

Just my 2¢, over to you.
