    Story in english: Light aircraft collides with drone in Norway
    SHT(Norwegian NTSB) Havarikommisjonen har iverksatt forundersøkelse i forbindelse med at et småfly søndag 30. august ca. kl. 17 kolliderte med en drone over Hvasser, Tjøme kommune, Vestfold | sht

    "SHT says the collision occurred at a height of around 2,500ft. “The pilot encountered what is believed to be a drone and, a moment later, heard a bang,” it states.

    The flight continued without any technical problems and an inspection after landing revealed no evidence of damage."

    The SHT is investigation the accident, at this moment there's no hard facts of what actually hit the airplane.

    We are not sure so let's say it was a "Drone"o_O
    If it was a UAV the plane would have went down you know because they can take down a 747 :D:p

    Hearse and speculation.
    More media hysteria until there's proof.

    The title squarely blames someone flying a "drone" with absolutely no evidence.

    Less credibility than a 35 cent tabloid.

    He did not see it but it was a drone? All these other pilots can see drones from thousands of feet away.. is this guy blind. We all know a drone impact will cause a plane to instantly self destruct so why did that not happen.
