AN AER LINGUS flight travelling from Dublin to Gatwick airport in London allegedly came close to a potentially lethal mid-air collision with a drone. A report claims that an unnamed pilot, was forced to carry out an emergency turn in his Airbus A320 while carrying 186 passengers. The alleged incident was reported to have occurred at 1,700ft, with the Airbus travelling at around 190mph, and preparing to land at Gatwick when the incident occurred. The incident occurred just before 2pm on April 28, and is thought to be the first recorded instance of a pilot taking evasive manoeuvres from what can only be described as an unidentified flying object, since there is no physical evidence available to confirm the pilots story.
