The CAA said it had recorded six other incidents between May 2014 and March 2015 at airports around the UK in which drones and piloted craft almost collided.
“Drone users must understand that when taking to the skies they are entering one of the busiest areas of airspace in the world,” said Tim Johnson, director of policy at the CAA, in a statement.
Drone owners must be aware of the rules and regulations surrounding the flying of their craft, he said.
Recklessly endangering an aircraft is a criminal offence, said Mr Johnson, and those convicted could face a five-year jail sentence.

I can’t say that I liked my schools’ admininistrators, though the high school principle was sort of okay in an old-fogey kind of way (after all, he was in my parents’ bridge club) and the elementary school principle was really cool and could hit a softball for a country mile. Mr. Lawson, the superintendent, wasn’t very likable from a student’s perspective. He was distant, remote, gray (as I am now), and had the people skills of a brick; nevertheless, he wasn’t stupid. Indeed, he guided the school system quite skillfully through the difficult days of desegregation.
When did stupid become a job qualification for being a school administrator?
This is not a felicitous fashion choice; fetishistic, maybe, but hardly felicitous. The cops might think, with some justification, that you are asking for it.
