British Airway Jet Hit By Drone

It sounds like we have escalated from spotting drones near airports/almost hitting drones to actually flying into them.

A British Airways flight has been struck by a suspected drone as it began to land at Heathrow Airport. Aviation police are investigating reports, made by the aircraft's pilot, that a plane travelling from Geneva, Switzerland was hit as came into the London airport at around 12:50pm on Sunday. Flight BA727 landed at Heathrow Terminal 5 safely with 132 passengers and five crew on board, police said. British Airways said the Airbus A320 was examined by engineers and cleared to take off for its next flight following the incident.
