You know the end is coming when crap like this starts showing up online. We’ve had drones landing on the White House lawn, we’ve heard first hand reports of commercial pilots encountering drones on approach and now, we see the above video in which a reckless drone operator is intentially approaching a Frontier Airlines passenger jet.
The incident occurred near McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas. According to PetaPixel, “the video was originally posted to a Facebook group called ‘1% FPV’ by a ‘James Jayo Older’ with the caption: ‘Found the SD card.. 1%ers only.'”
Other than the obvious threat to the safety of the people on board the jet, this is terrible PR for an industry that is still finding its way through technological and regulatory hurdles. We’ve come so far in both areas over the past couple years. However, it just takes one major incident to crush the industry. With idiots like this flying drones, it seems almost inevitable.
