London's Gatwick airport suspends all flights after 'multiple' reports of drones

marketing ploy

I reckon its just a marketing ploy for Phalanx - they have no chance of intercepting hypersonic devices so now they need to bolster their income somehow... drones would be a much easier target....

I wonder if they offer a ground based turret system suitable for airports?

Alternatively, as others have mentioned, this seems to be a great way of causing maximum disruption in a foreign state should such disruption suit your nefarious plans...
