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”!

Drone Blowback?

Posted by Lew Rockwell on February 21, 2013 07:50 PM

Writes Jack Douglas:

The US plans to use drones to spy and kill everywhere. They forget that something so simple and cheap can become a deadly weapon against  a Global Empire that is exposed worldwide, maybe a guerrilla war-winning weapon like the IED’s in Iraq and Afghanistan, but much smaller, hard to detect, and cheap.

Everyone forgets about the asymetrical nature of warfare.

An advantage never lasts very long!

And imagine what small drones could do against the US civil aviation?

Argh!
