    Lmfaooo we need more of this

    The report is false. No evidence, no video, just an idiot pilot reporting a bird as a drone. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Drones are limited to 1500feet not the reported 1700+ feet the video says this one was flying.

    Good ol’ LiveATC….love that website.

  4. Flower Chmelar on July 13, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Matter of time but it will happen

  5. Ray Offord on July 13, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Drones should come with a brain detector

  6. Pablo Hernandez on July 13, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    No, we need the Airmap to become the official app that will control the airspace for drones. Pilots and atc controllers need to have access to this information. People need to get a license to fly a drone.

  7. Xeric on July 13, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Newer gps drones have their own maps that don’t let them even start up in no fly areas. The future is now

    Typical MSM twisted/fake news story. The pilot reported seeing something off his right wing but gave no distance estimate. When asked about the ALTITUDE he said probably 100 feet below. Altitude is not separation distance! It could have been many hundreds or even a thousand feet away. That is required by basic geometry. In order to be both 100 feet below and 100 feet separation, the alleged drone would have had to have been DIRECTLY underneath the aircraft.
    However, the pilot reported the drone to be off his right wing… If it were actually 10 degrees down LOS, the the alleged drone would have been 567 feet away – almost two football fields distant! Hardly a "near-miss" because the drone would have been little more than a speck in the sky

    The reliability of this report has been seriously challenged. The speed and distance factors of the aircraft would have made accurate visual identification of something as small as a hobbyist drone very difficult. If it was indeed very close it would flash by so fast that it could become easily confused with a bird. If it was far enough away to not flash past, it would appear too small to be reliably identifiable.

    Get drones to patrol the sky around airports to look for drones flying near airports.

  10. Investing For Time Travelers on July 13, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Search "long range FPV" on Youtube and tell these irresponsible people they shouldn’t be endangering real airplanes while they sit safely on the ground. The FAA doesn’t seem to being doing the obvious and tracking down the people posting these videos.

    These drone owners has no regards for peoples lives? At 200 mph impact that drone would penetrate the wing of that aircraft and internal damage to the wing can result possibly crashing that plane. That speed is actually slow because the airplane is landing at cruising speed planes are much faster.

  13. Jose Depre on July 14, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Where’s the evidence of these so called daily drone incursions?

  14. The Small Blonde One on July 14, 2021 at 12:02 am

    They need to ban drones in airports before it kills people

  15. Kleki on July 14, 2021 at 12:03 am


  16. Wind Walker on July 14, 2021 at 12:05 am

    ..190mph it was 100ft away at 1700ft altitude.. lol sounds like a bird, plastic bag, etc. Where is the evidence?

  17. Nonmi Hiseddeo on July 14, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I live in Montana, and drones flying over forest fires will ground firefighting efforts from the air.

  18. James Wang on July 14, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Anti drone system, including radar, radio monitoring, and camera for drone detection, and jammed for blocking. Details on http://jh-police.com/anti-uav-system.

    how come never drone pics or parts just a bunch of talk!!!!!!!!!!!!  never proof just talk!!!!!!!!!

  21. wavy davy on July 14, 2021 at 12:14 am

    yet no evidence.

  22. EA on July 14, 2021 at 12:15 am

    ATC communicated to the Jet Blue 958 about the drone…!!! What Can Jet Blue’s pilot does about it??? Avoid it..??? Push the brake pedal??? BS

  23. 334665eric 7788977 on July 14, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Where dafuq da footage of dis near miss..?!?!?!?????

  24. MICHAEL DAVIS on July 14, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Why don’t they ban drones except for Military use?

  25. techtiptricks on July 14, 2021 at 12:23 am

    False report. Pilot when asked what was the altitude of the reported drone was "probably 100ft below me" That’s not an altitude…. A Pilot would normally be far more precise when giving details

  26. Rafael The Crusader on July 14, 2021 at 12:29 am

    u guys are just going to keep pushing it until drones are made illegal. then ima laugh

  27. xjet on July 14, 2021 at 12:31 am

    So what can be done?

    Obviously those people operating the drones in question don’t give a hoot about the law (since they’re already breaking the law) so stronger regulations are clearly not a workable option.   Even a ban would not affect those who obviously feel they have no obligation to obey the law.

  28. Martin Tyler on July 14, 2021 at 12:31 am

    hey he did the debate last night

  29. Omar Zaifulizan on July 14, 2021 at 12:35 am

    drones should be banned in and near airports

  30. Rishi Gunness on July 14, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I live in nyc and drones ARE allowed to fly at Bennett field 400feet and below. Not to mention all the big manufacturers DJI will not allow the drone to fly outside the allowed airspace. Completely false report just for the views

  31. ghostofmars83 on July 14, 2021 at 12:39 am

    No wonder why drone operators are getting a bad name…

  32. John Dodge on July 14, 2021 at 12:40 am

    "STIFF FINES"? No jail? Flying a drone in commercial traffic pathways potentially killing 100’s of people calls for a fine? Possession of a gram of cocaine costs more!
