Missing the point

OK so a drone strike won't end in fiery death for everybody. But it will result in the airframe being taken out of service for a though check which will cost possibly millions of pound for the work and provision of a replacement aircraft.

Somebody will have to pay for that and I doubt the airlines insurers will be overjoyed with the prospect.
