Most recently, the Buxton Carnival took place. During a memorial flight in honor of the Battle of Britain, a plane crash nearly occurred. But, everything ended well.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) banned all drone flights for the duration of the event. However, one man decided to defy the rules, which could lead to a plane crash. Derbyshire resident Mark Bagully (49-year-old man) nevertheless decided to launch his drone during an overflight. As a result, the aircraft belonging to the man almost crashed into a rare Hawker Hurricane.
The Hawker Hurricane fighter was developed a little less than 90 years ago by Hawker Aircraft Ltd. The aircraft has a Rolls-Royce engine and can reach a speed of 547 km/h. It also has a power reserve of almost 1000 km. The first time a fighter took to the air was in 1935.
The police immediately identified the owner of the drone and confiscated the aircraft. And Mark Bagulli himself was arrested, he confessed to everything and is now awaiting a court decision.
