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


Some uninformed guesses:

No, not Russians or Chinese. Or aliens. Or a dark government conspiracy, nor Greenpeace-style activists, nor anti-drone false-flag operation. Not terrorism.

The airport shutdown is not accomplishing any clear strategic goal, it seems to me. It's harassment.

IMHO and uninformed guess: it sounds to me more akin to arson or vandalism. The motive may be power-tripping (look how smart and powerful I am!) or perhaps disgruntled-employee revenge.

Quite nasty wake-up on the topic, though, and very likely to encourage copy-cat acts.
