A Lufthansa plane with 108 passengers on board nearly collided with a drone as it approached Warsaw’s main airport on Monday afternoon (July 20 )
The drone is said to have come within 100 metres of the aircraft at a height of 760 metres. The plane landed safely.
Flight instructions for other planes were changed until the area was deemed clear.
A police investigation is underway although no drone was spotted by military helicopters.
With the use of commercial drones for applications from filming to sports event and agriculture booming, the European Union is currently working on new regulations for drones to protect the safety and privacy of citizens.
