A MANIAC risked a deadly mid-air smash by flying a drone within feet of a packed holiday jet.
The captain of the Boeing 757 spotted it as he took off from Manchester Airport.
He was at 1,500ft during a “critical phase of flight” — and officials said there was a high risk of a potentially fatal collision.

I’ve read that the modern passenger jet gets froze turkeys at engines.
I’ve read that the light weight consumer drones would be less damaging than a drone strike.
So what’s the truth?
I’ve seen that the Japanese using anti-drones to capture consumer drones.
So what can be done?
It would seem that FAA exclusion zones could be detected by a consumer drone. Or registered by the maker.
So what’s the “truth”!
