    The drone is back! All flights suspended again. I really hope none of you on here are using Gatwick anytime soon :(.

    Sounds like a great name for a budget airline.

    Better than "touching Cloth" the alternative name for Ryanair

    Chris Graylings fault. He was told time and again about this issue and did nothing. Had the option to pass law that would have prevented this, including passing legislation that would have made it law for drones to be fitted with software making it impossible for them to fly near airports.
  11. WRONG YET AGAIN :rolleyes::D
  12. Time for aircraft to be fitted with cow catchers like those on old Wild West trains. Or noughties Chelsea Tractors.

    The third runway brigade would surely be targeting Heathrow.

    Is that drone shaped present under the Christmas tree for me?

    Let’s hope so.

    His work is installing double glazing so let’s hope he hasn’t been fitted up.

    I am 22 but am an avid researcher on the mid/late Furphy periods.

    Actually, I’ve moved entropy out of the conceptual box this year.

    You distance yourself from 47/54 yo’s.

    Must be either younger or older.
  25. Strange really, you would think a man who fits double glazing would want the aircraft flying so more people would buy it to combat the aircraft noise :confused::D

    You might be onto it. They lifted night flight restrictions to get the backlog cleared...... 20% off all pvc and wooden frames sir to help you sleep.

    Some friends had a luxuriant frond of pampas grass in their front garden because they thought it looked good.

    Unaware of other implications.

    Caused confusion among the mid Surrey residents.

    Pampas grass subsequently removed.

    Hopefully they won’t be closing major airports through their sexual antics.

    They can't really Play all innocent and say they were just practicing their new love of drove flying, as they must have wondered as to why the normal aircraft weren't flying over their residence at 300 feet for 36 hours!

    Unless they are both deaf as well as stupid!

    Yeah it didn't seem to fit. Especially as his boss said he was fitting windows at the time.

    They haven't got a scooby who did it.

    Yeah, when I was reading the article it didn’t seem to make much sense. Normally with things like this if they are genuinely guilty of some sort of crime you get a few neighbours saying stuff like, there was always something a bid odd about them, etc. In this case everybody to a man that they interviewed said they’d be amazed if it was them, so it just didn’t make any sense.

    It does make you wonder how they came to be arrested though? Some sort of disgruntled neighbour?
