A drone posed a "serious risk of collision" to a Boeing 737 near Stansted Airport

A drone posed a "serious risk of collision" to a Boeing 737 near Stansted Airport, a report has stated.

The black and white craft with four rotors came within 82ft (25m) of the aeroplane at 3,000ft (914m) on its approach to the airport in May.
A Boeing pilot saw the drone cross its flight path and assessed the risk as low, but the UK Airprox Board said "a serious risk of collision" existed. 
"The board considered separation was reduced to the bare minimum," it added.
The drone was seen at the same altitude as the Boeing 737 and flew left to right across its path.
The pilot reported that "it was obvious from the flight path of the drone that avoiding action was not necessary because it would not impact the aircraft".
The UK Airprox Board, which assesses incidents in UK airspace, disagreed and regarded it as Category A risk - the most serious.
The drone operator, who has not been traced, was in breach of the Air Navigation Order 2009, which refers to flight safety of unmanned craft.
Drones must not be flown in airspace or above 400ft (121m) without permission from air traffic control. 
An "observer" should also keep a close eye on any craft flying so high, but the board said it believed no-one would have been able to see it from the ground.
The incident, which happened above Castle Camps, Cambridgeshire, followed another in March when a Boeing 737 pilot spotted a drone approximately 200ft away at the same altitude. 
The 737 was approaching Stansted at 2,000ft (609m) over High Wych in Hertfordshire at the time.
The board concluded the assessment of risk was difficult due to estimated distances, but it was "clear to the board that the drone had come close to the B737".
"The safety of the aircraft may have been compromised."
The operator of that drone has also not been found.
A spokesman for Stansted Airport said: "Drones pose a serious risk when flown near airports.
"Owners of drones are legally responsible for their safe flying and could face prosecution if they breach Civil Aviation Authority guidelines."
So why are distributors running stupid ads showing a drone being used to fly into an aircraft flight path?

WTF Drone Advert Showing How To Bring Down A Commercial Airliner

You need to read this to the end as your kids or their friends may see it and its like and think its a cool idea. 

I've just come across this advert for a Drone and eBay.

It looks great:

and fits nicely in the palm of your hand

It can be used for flying around your garden taking amazing pictures and videos:

Or according to the official advertising literature you can:


Now I may be getting a little out of touch with the state of console games and toys, but I didn't think that bringing down commercial aeroplanes or destroying the aircrafts windscreen or engines at take off, was currently ranked very highly, even in 3D VR games. 

Am I Missing Something?

Now Share if you think this is totally stupid, irresponsible and dangerous advertising on the part of the manufacturer.

These drones may be band after users see the picture and take the dome along to their local airport ... truly bonkers.

Mind you it not all bad.  It has an amazing speck for the geeks amongst you ;-)
