Airport drone 'plastic bag'
A "drone" that apparently hit an aircraft at Heathrow Airport in the UK last weekend may have been a plastic bag.
"The reported drone strike on Sunday has not been confirmed it was actually a drone. It was the local police force that tweeted that they had a report of a drone striking an aircraft," said UK transport minister Roger Goodwill, The Daily Telegraph reports.
"The early reports of a dent in the front of the plane were not confirmed – there was no actual damage to the plane and there's indeed some speculation that it may have even been a plastic bag or something."
Aviation authorities and police are still investigating the incident affecting an A320 landing at Heathrow on Sunday. ®
