You don’t expect to share airspace with a drone but if you’ve kept up with this blog you know that’s more than a possibility these days.
Melbourne, Australia-based photographer Simon Pollock was shocked to spot a drone flying near his Los Angeles-bound flight but not so shocked he couldn’t take a picture first to share with the world.
After reports of a drone hitting an aircraft in Canada, this story is right up there in terms of invasion of space by dronecraft.
While his plane was landing at Los Angeles International Airport, Pollock spotted a DJI drone hovering close to the craft.
In a Facebook post about the incident, Pollock said “Drones. All fun and games until you’re looking out your window on approach to LAX and you spot a Phantom just out your window (yeah a few hundred feet, but imagine if it… well…)…Some people are utterly stupid.”
