If a recent report is to be believed, the 137 crew and passengers of British Airways flight 727 on 17 April were among the unluckiest people on the planet. It appears their Airbus A320 collided with a small drone on approach toLondon Heathrow airport from Geneva. The exact circumstances remain under investigation.
A study released by George Mason University in March estimated the odds of a toy drone collision with a manned aircraft as one in 1.87 million flight hours.
