A drone was flown within a few metres of a passenger jet landing at Heathrow Airport, continuing a recent spate of near-misses.
The pilot of the Airbus A319 stated that the drone may have been just 20 feet above and 25 yards to the left when it passed by the aircraft on September 30th.
Officials said that the drone was flown against Civil Aviation Authority regulations because it did not have permission to be above 400 feet within the Heathrow CTR control zone.
The incident was put in the most serious risk category
High-powered lasers used to attack aircraft over Heathrow should be rebranded as weapons, according to the pilots' union.
Last night a laser was shone directly into the cockpit of a transatlantic flight - affecting the co-pilot so badly that the flight had to be aborted, and flown back to Heathrow.
Aircraft are coming under attack at an alarming rate - and some lasers even have the power to blind.
