>> UK police arrested a man and woman on Saturday over the drones that crippled Gatwick Airport days before Christmas. Rogue drone operators repeatedly flew onto the airfield, forcing the runways to shut for spells over three days, including all of Thursday. Inflicting delays and cancellations on at least 120,000 would-be passengers.
Forcing many to camp out at the airport and to search in desperation for alternative routes to their holidays and Christmas family gatherings. It was the most disruptive drone incursion that has happened at any major airport. Gatwick has reopened, jubilant passengers finally getting onboard. But it warns that there will be knock on disruption.
The UK second largest airport was forced to cancel all flights when small drones were spotted near the airfield late Wednesday. Every time they went to reopen the runway, the drones returned. The army deployed anti-drone technology to secure the area, making it safe enough to resume flights.
