    How can a dji drone survive ten hours of flying?!?

  4. ColumnedFox5508 on July 23, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    the simplest solution to tackle the drone problems is ban them from public use so it’s only the army that uses them instead simple

    Ally law

    Still no credible footage of what was spotted over the space of 3 days. Lol what a joke.

  7. Michael. M7 CYC on July 23, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Hang on..my drone ( a dji mavic pro 2 ) will only fly for 25 minutes on one battery…..this is crap…this is just so the uk government can set up stupid rules. Introduction of each drone to be registered. A exam for pilots / owners and an annual fee ! 😡😡

  8. cryptosteve on July 23, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    So the battery only lasts 25 minutes before the drone goes back too the oparater and its been flying all night so the operator must have 24 batterys with him for 12 hours and the police can’t locate were he is even though the drone has gone back too the operator over 24 times during the night

  9. mrsillywalk on July 23, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    This is black propaganda by the UK police state.

  10. iTrick on July 23, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Shutting down an entire international airport + calling in the police and military because of ONE person with a drone?
    Since when do airports completely shutdown because of one person? that is unheard of, there is something else going on.

  11. Josh p on July 23, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    You’re one of the brainwashed idiot masses if you actually believe this ridiculous "drone" narrative. so many holes in this government approved ‘theory’…

  12. Old Fart with a Gopro on July 23, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Photographic proof please

  13. Super Trini Gamer on July 23, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    I was in the airport during this and it was the most annoying thing ever. I felt awful too. Family was exhausted from not having anywhere comfortable to go, having to wait 2 hours in a line at midnight to get a refund and information.. I don’t think it was a drone. We were by a massive restaurant window and saw f all.

  14. Big E on July 23, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    What a joker Hahaha

  15. Bert Visscher on July 23, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    If you’re interested in how to take a drone down without any interaction required with the pilot, please watch this video:

    They say it’s drone’s! Where’s the footage of it?
    More like UFO’s 👽👍

  17. 『baitmaster76』 on July 23, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    It’s called 30mm HE shells, but british ppl can’t do anything right, even a small rock would end that fast

  18. yoyoyotooo on July 23, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Bullshit, just a big set up so we cant fly these things anywhere they dont want us to!!!!!!
    Soon to follow, licences (more.money for them) so they can arrst us if we fly near "there" no.fly zones!!!
    And what will.we do abou it….FUCK ALL!!

  19. Michael AKA. SLYFOX on July 23, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    This government needs to get a grip on reality! Drones you say? I say bullshit. No one sends in the military for a drone and cancels every single flight, costing airlines millions upon Millions of £—-? Government and media are full of shit. Look around the world to what is happening and you will have your answer.
    PS. Where is the footage of this so-called drone? We are probably the num1 country with the most CCTV & the military and media are there but no one has any footage. Strange🤔

  20. Ali khan on July 23, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Government liars.

  21. Miroslav Neuzil on July 23, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    UFO

  22. oatmealtv on July 23, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    A coverup of an unrelated threat, or a lie to clear public opinion to support draconian regulatory change. Most drone batteries run flat in about ten minutes, and Police since denied any evidence of drone presence. If you want truth look here https://youtu.be/TRHJkvuQPG8

  23. Dan the man on July 23, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Drones my ass.. it was UFO’s.. everyone knows this.. not the first time either..

  24. Lee Andrews on July 23, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Absolute JOKE the world must be laughing at this COUNTRY a WEAK WEAK goverment that can NOT lead

    Government reckons will imprisonment aliens

  26. Ali Ahmed on July 23, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    You guys do know it was ally law drone

  27. Kevin Vang on July 23, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Where are the drones I don’t see nothing

  28. Thomas Pridmore on July 23, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Good

  29. Justin Dougherty on July 23, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Easy fix if drone manufacturers and authorities work together. An automated drone take over system for places where unauthorized drones cant go. Crosses the zone into the no fly zone a master signal takes the drone back out and forces it to land regardless of input from the drone operator. Problem solved

  30. GANESHEN on July 23, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    ufo not drone for 10 hours impossible

  31. Bill Moore on July 23, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Brit government fiddle, a country where you need a licence to get a licence, to keep civil servants employed doing everything wrong!

  32. Predalienspitter on July 23, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Who else noticed the guy in the grey hoodie showing middle finger? 4:00

  33. Nick Simmons on July 23, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    There was no drone was there?

  34. Allan Davis on July 23, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    It’s happened again people….and guess what…. There won’t be any pictures of it this time. What a load of horse shit.

  35. Bryan Moyna on July 23, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Why didnt they just sent another drone to destroy or capture it?

  36. Elli P on July 23, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Life isn’t simple, people; but a lot of people are. Don’t view this incident with hindsight – that’s meaningless. I’m writing this Comment just a few minutes after the announcement was made. View the ‘attack’ in real-time and respond accordingly. Real time. No hindsight, no smartarse conspiracy theory crap, no "We hate the government and they’re staging it to punish us noble quad pilots … " nonsense. Real time, with 100,000 people passing through the airport.
    So, in actual, on the spot terms, here goes. In at least two reports the drone/quad/hex-copter was described as ‘larger than hobby-sized’. So a small industrial machine is zipping about an airport. Shoot it down, scream the gun nuts. Whoa, there! A large drone is still a tiny target if its pilot has several spotters with camera phones to help him and he wants to be difficult. So where is it? On a roof. No, in the long grass. No, it’s – somewhere. Gatwick is vast. Where’s the pilot? Is this a three man team using long range FPV? Don’t know. So you still want to shoot it down, right, just like you do in your video games. Great. Fill the air with lead. That’ll help. Yay. So where is it? Don’t know. Aw, just fire wildly in all directions and you’re bound to hit something. As long as the drone’s not been parked against part of the terminal or under a £20,000,000 airliner loaded with (precious, probably blonde, blue-eyed USA cheerleader-type) passengers and 200 tons of fuel. And what’s the drone carrying? Just a camera so some brain-dead 12-year-old Butthead clone can post a "Huh-huh… that was cool!" video on YouTube? Or a camera plus enough high explosive to blow a hole in a plane’s fuel tank? Hmm. Someone with FPV goggles could fly it straight into the terminal building and trigger an incendiary device. Or deploy a biological weapon. Or release nerve gas. That’d be fun. OK, don’t shoot it down yet. Just… er… well, do something…you know, great. Um, yeah.

    But wait! Is it also part of a co-ordinated attack? Misdirection has been common military strategy for over 4,000 years. So this drone could be a decoy to keep the security forces busy whilst 2 other decoy drones at Heathrow airport provide a secondary distraction so that the two guys loading baggage into cargo holds at Gatwick can take the opportunity to carry out phase 3 of the attack, the main part, which is to smuggle 45 lbs of semtex high explosive on board the two flights bound for New York. That’d give Trump something to moan about.
    So who knows what’s going on? I don’t. You don’t, either, so please, don’t mock with the benefit of hindsight – it really doesn’t help.

    You know when you get addicted to lying you can’t help your self admit to it aliens did it

  44. Johnny Hicks on July 23, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    It wasent drones it was 4 ufos but news media was told not to report it.

  45. Lazarus Issass on July 23, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    No evidence of drones whatsoever. Police claim to have found remains of damaged drone but produced no photos. They also interview a couple for 36 hours then release them without charge, having ruined their reputation in the press.
    We now have the real reason for the unproven drone claims which is the introduction, entirely predictable, of yet more draconian legislation, in this instance governing the public’s use of drones. It’s all imo about state control in every area of national life.
    Most videos posted on YouTube about the false (imo) claim of drone flying shutting Gatwick airport are posted by the British intelligence controlled BBC.
    Sick.

  46. Google Account12 on July 23, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Controlled event led by government actors. Just like the nutter who allegedly tried shooting the queen with a crossbow.

    They’re after your freedoms

  47. Pyluserectusdungenhavenhooter Man on July 23, 2022 at 8:41 pm

  50. Rien on July 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    whatever this was, drones are inevitably gonna be the future boys. drone delivery is not here yet but it probably will in the future. atleast, thats just my opinion which nobody cares about xd
