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


Re: I wonder if...

"Talking of fire, don't airports usually have access to fairly powerful water canon. What is the maximum range of one of those things?"

Time to buy back those Boris water cannons, that BJ paid 300,000+ for and then London mayor sold for 11,000 as scrap....

A small refinement to the reduce the bore of the end of the nozzle and that'll increase the water jets range and should dampen the drone.

Otherwise, a RF detector should be able to se what frqequency is being used to control it and then just get a radio ham (or the miltary) to jam said signals. It'll take minutes and with no control frequencies, it should be easy to snag. (Or it'll fall to the ground).
