Investigation at Heathrow as plane is hit by drone

Would be a first in the UK if confirmed

Police are investigating an alleged collision between a drone and a British Airways (BA) plane landing at Heathrow.

The flight from Geneva had 132 passengers and five crew on board and was hit by an object, which was believed to be a drone.

No arrests have been made and BA said it was assisting police with the investigation.

A BA spokesman said: “Our aircraft landed safely, was fully examined by our engineers and it was cleared to operate its next flight.”
