Idiocy guaranteed

You can absolutely guarantee that brainless morons will do the wrong thing.

I'm reminded of the cretins who were shining lasers into the eyes of commercial aircraft pilots landing at Sydney international airport - and I'm sure it happens elsewhere too - by what happened yesterday in Dubai.

Gulf News is reporting:  Air traffic in Dubai was halted for nearly an hour on Friday due to public misuse of recreational drones near the flight path of commercial airlines.

Mohammed Abdullah Al-Ahli, Director General of the Dubai Civil Aviation, (said) that air traffic in Dubai came to a standstill from 3:00 to 3:55 on Friday as a result of malpractices of some members of the public  who flew unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) -- or "drones" -- in the air navigation passages meant for commercial planes.

He said such recreational drones pose a serious risk to the safety of air navigation as well as passengers, he said.

The paper went on to say that:  In the US, aviation authorities are receiving reports almost on a daily basis about drones flying near airplanes and helicopters or close to airports without permission.

Far too many dangerous morons about folks, we need a cull.
