Drone caught 20 metres from aircraft to be investigated
Transport accident investigators are looking at an incident at Zurich airport when a drone came as close as 20 meters to an aircraft.
At the end of September, an Airbus operated by Swiss International Airlines was approaching to land from Berlin when a drone appeared very close to the plane.
It’s being considered a serious risk. There were 108 passengers and crew aboard.
Zurich airport is renewing its calls for a drone ban near the airport as this is not the first time. It’s also demanding drone pilots have to be licenced.
