It looks as if what we feared could happen, did happen, as it is reported that a British Airways A320 reportedly impacted a UAV while on approach to Heathrow Airport Sunday afternoon.

The pilot of the aircraft reported that an object had struck the airliner as it was arriving from Geneva and making its final approach to Heathrow. The flight landed without further incident. The plane was inspected by engineers and was cleared for its next scheduled flight... UAV manufacturer DJI has introduced three new products that the company says will make high-end professional aerial film-making easier. First, The DJI M600 has an increased payload to 13 pounds. It is designed to fly the Ronin-MX gimbal and is compatible with all of DJI’s Zenmuse gimbals and cameras. It is capable of flight times of up to 36 minutes when carrying a Zenmuse X5 and up to 16 minutes with a RED Epic. We hope to hear soon that coastal Georgia will see its first air show in 20 years October 8 and 9 in Brunswick, Georgia. JLC Airshow Management announced the "Wings Over the Golden Isles Air Show" last week. It will be headlined by the Canadian Snowbirds precision demonstration team, and include skydivers, vintage Warbirds, military demonstration teams and national aerobatic champions, according to JLC Airshows Management spokesperson Brenda Little.
