I guess it had to happen some time, assuming it was a UAV...

Also one in the last couple of days. Strangely silent on this forum.
Drone failed over the harbour bridge and hit a car. Left a chunk in the cars bumper as well.
I wonder how the insurance companies and clients will react to this one.
News said that "a man had turned himself into police".
At least he is man enough to take some responsibility. Good on him for that.

Going into YSSY yesterday (5/9/16) just before 12:00 the ATIS was saying there was "unapproved" drone activity on the 34 approach path up to 2000 feet.
Can UAV's get that high?? Intentionally or unintentionally......................
