    Drone flown 20m from jet 11,000ft over London

    I can see more laws being made up if these keep occurring as quickly as they have been lately.. :confused:

    At least they recognise it's a minority spoiling it though and they havn't just tarnished everyone with the same brush!

    11,000 feet !!! That's approx 61 minutes to descend from that altitude!

    Yeah, that was my first thought when I saw 11,000 feet as well to be honest.

    More coverage we don't need for the hobby though :(

    11,000ft what a crock! Perhaps it was a drone but NOT a DJI Drone.

    These stories, at least on here, should be titled.. Another, REPORTED AND UNVERIFIED, near miss in (fill in the blank location).

    I give these reports 0 credibility ...

    Minority spoiling it? This story is obviously a lie. So it might have been more accurate to say, "I can see more laws being made up if lies like this keep occurring."

    Balderdash.... the majority of these reports are just unproven allegations. Seriously who believes that it was a drone at 11,000 feet ?
