Officials at Gatwick airport have welcomed a decision by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to employ a squadron of drones at airports to combat drones being irresponsibly flown by members of the public.
Gatwick was closed recently due to the actions of as-yet-unidentified drone owners who flew their machines in the airport's airspace.
After initially arresting two people who looked like they might have been the kind of folks who flew drones, the police have hit a brick wall with their investigation. Nobody has come forward to admit they did it, and guilty consciences are not in vogue at the moment.
The CAA, then, has decided to 'fight fire with fire', and has given the go-ahead for the deployment of a Drone Force under the codename of Operation Fight Fire With Fire.
Passengers should check with their carrier to see if there is a hope in Hell of their flight taking off.
