Unsuspecting passengers would be surprised to know that recently a drone flew right above their landing airplane at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

A drone flies within feet of an airplane landing at McCarran International Airport and the footage was posted online.

The drone took off from Whitney Park and unclear when the incident happened. “We became aware of this incident this afternoon and we are investigating,” said Ian Gregor from the FAA.

“This pilot’s actions not only endangered the flying public but has the potential to discredit an entire sUAS industry,” Drone U said. “It is the opinion of Drone U and its members that the pilot receive swift and just punishment for this example of irresponsible and reckless flight. There is no excuse for this type of criminal behavior.” – 8Now News
