As an exercise and out of curiosity I Googled this: drone collides with plane. All I got was "nearly & almost". This doesn't mean we would take the chance but I can't find where any drones have come in contact with an airplane. I would have bet it has happened by the medias reports of near misses. I don't doubt some knucklehead will accomplish the feat someday. God forbid. Does any one know of a creditable collision? My dad is an old well seasoned private pilot. He about burst a new one when I told him about my upgraded P3 and what it could do. He has faith & trust in me, but in the hands of someone not having any appreciation for what we are doing...Bla bla. My point is I know prejudice exists. Don't forget we are the new boyz on the block, and the established fliers have the idea that they may just own the airspace. I don't agree with that but I do respect what it implies towards safety. So I'm wondering just how much of the media attention is over embellished. Knowing the media they are like sharks in a frenzy when info like this is put out. How much is this is a knee jerk prejudice and the story gets stretched? I just want truthful facts and doubt if thats what we are getting exactly. I'm working on the premise if a aircraft can see my dot in the air and say its a drone I am way to close.
