It happened. A drone has hit a passenger plane at Heathrow airport in London.

This is why the FAA requires drone pilots to register. Reports come in about a drone collision with a passenger plane at Heathrow airport in London. A British Airways flight from Geneva, with 132 passengers and five crew members on board, was hit by a drone as it approached the London airport at 12:50BST on Sunday reports the BBC.

There is an investigation underway by police to confirm the incident. It would be the first drone plane collision in the UK. The Airbus A320 landed safely, but the pilot reported that an object has hit the plane. There was no damage on the plane and it was cleared to take off again.

The most dangerous scenario of a drone collision is when the drone gets sucked into an engine. This could cause an explosion.

Flying a drone near airports is forbidden. Such incidents just make owning a drone more difficult for pilots who follow the rules. There will be more regulations and requirements to own a drone if such incidents occur more often.
