Total Drone Disaster at Not_Karlie's home airport

Postby Not_Karl » Sun Nov 12, 2017 3:41 pm

An Aerolineas Argentinas Boeing 737-800, registration LV-GKS performing flight AR-1865 from Trelew,CB to Buenos Aires Aeroparque,BA (Argentina), was on final approach to Buenos Aires Jorge Newbery Aeroparque Airport's runway 13 about 1000 meters/3300 feet/0.54nm before the runway threshold at about 220 feet AGL when the crew observed a drone and felt some impact. The aircraft continued the landing without further incident.

Was the drone white with blue stripes, an AFA logo and a number 10?

No, that's not a drone, but an extraterrestrial.

No, it was brown, more or less spherical or pear shaped, with something looking like a drinking straw protruding from its upper side. Something like this:

It may have been an UFO.

Does a thread like this need someone to make a pompous post of how the drone operator should receive over-the-top physical punishment, or is that more for laser-pointer threads?

Physical punishment is also OK for stupid pilots and sub-stupid drone operators.

Unfortunately, one needs to deviate from type specific (or fundamental) procedure and fly their drone (or laser pointer) in the vicinity of an airport (and associated photographers)...but maybe that would be worth it?
