Does anyone think this supposed pic of the drone is simply a police helicopter ? You can just make out a tail boom
I'll have to take your word for it; my eyes can't make out anything
It is SUCH a shame that this event is occurring at such an inconvenient location, instead of somewhere blessed with aviation-knowledgeable people (spotters/photographers/avgeeks), who might just happen to have binoculars, telescopes and/or PROPER CAMERAS with high powered telephoto lenses. Oh wait......
To date, all I have seen is alleged sightings from "airport workers", and indistinct black smudges in the sky that could be anything. In my experience the average airport worker goes there to earn money, and couldn't tell the difference between a Tristar (L-1011) and a Trident (HS.121); like they've both got three engines, innit?
Even amongst the general population, in this era when pretty much everyone has a camera phone in their pocket, why has nobody captured a decent image yet? Last night in the dark, I can understand, but in broad daylight, I'm more reminded of all those supposed pictures of UFOs in the 50's, that were never quite in focus.
I'm not disputing that there may have been a drone, somewhere vaguely near LGW, at one point, last night. Beyond that, I'm waiting for proper evidence.
Nothing to see here; move along please.
