    Idiot or idiots. The chaos, inconvenience and cost of delays that this idiot, or these idiots caused, is maddening. :mad::mad:

    That would be a good and fairly simple solution.

    They need to prosecute these people and put them behind bars for a long time.

    Two idiots and a couple of drone downed an Aiport for more then two day? The the heck was this all about. These fools should get the book Thrown at them.

    Unless there is more here then we know. Maybe they were trying to take down a plane with an 'Armed" drone?

    They have to crackdown on them or tHis will start to happen all over.

    Yes LL I believe there is a problem at this airport with security. They don't know what they are doing. Closing an airport on a rumor, fake report it dumb. It is running into the millions of pounds for this mistake! Yes they should be careful but this is ridiculous!
