London Gatwick Airport was forced to suspend operations after one or more allegedly UFO-like drones repeatedly flew on airport runways. Wednesday at 21:03 (local time), Gatwick, the second-busiest airport in the United Kingdom after London-Heathrow, will close all of its runways. According to the BBC, at least 100,000 people have been affected by the shutdown, resulting in absolute mayhem.
Several passengers at Gatwick were unable to fly, while other aircraft were rerouted to other airports, including Amsterdam, Paris, and Bordeaux. When attempting to depart Gatwick, the scene is chaotic. Apart from canceled flights, the hotels are full, therefore a large number of passengers have been forced to sleep in the terminals. Because to this, the Army has dispatched a group of specialists to intercept the devices. But, Sussex police, whose jurisdiction encompasses the airport, have stated that the event is unrelated to terrorism and is instead a "deliberate act" of air traffic disruption. This is the official account of the event, however it appears that in Gatwick something entirely else is occurring. The closing of Gatwick Airport, according to a drone specialist, has nothing to do with drones, but rather with UFOs or a plot to ban the use of drones in our sky.
UFOs or an enormous conspiracy
During an interview on the British radio station Talk radio, Steve Timewell, editor of the journal Drone User Magazine, said that Gatwick Airport has been influenced by UFO sightings or that there is a plot to ban drones.
Timewell stated, "The sensationalist media adore this type of narrative." And who knows, it may be a scheme to prohibit all drones outright.
The broadcaster Jamie East then inquired whether Gatwick airport will close for a day to eliminate the drones.
"The first thing we must determine in this case is whether this event involves unmanned aircraft," stated Timewell.
"As with other allegations of drones, we have yet to see visual verification that these aircraft are unmanned. So, until further notice, this should be regarded as a UFO sighting involving an unidentified flying object. Who knows, it may be a bag with the lights on."
The drone specialist added that there are two sorts of users for these devices: one that derives economic value from drones and utilizes them properly, and the other who buys a cheap drone on eBay and flies it anywhere they choose. But, regardless of this person's intelligence, he would be unable to fly above Gatwick Airport.
"Essentially, this is a purposeful attempt to disrupt airport operations or a deliberate attempt to eliminate drones," concluded Timewell.
The footage allegedly showing a drone at Gatwick Airport.
A video published by MailOnline depicts an unexplained flying object at Gatwick airport. In the photographs, the mystery item, which they believe is a drone, can be seen flying above Gatwick's northern runway before vanishing while being pursued by a police aircraft. Sussex police officers were positioned at strategic positions with sniper rifles to fire down the purported drone, but they were allegedly unable to do so.
"Weapons against drones"
Unexpectedly, the British Ministry of Defense stated that a specialist team has been assigned to manage the situation. Furthermore, the military will also test a new weapon known as 'Drone Dome', which can 'kill' a drone by severing its communications from up to two kilometers away using a laser.
Some conspiracy theorists, for their part, have linked this event to the one that occurred at the airport in Bremen, Germany in 2014. As we reported in Esoteric and Paranormal World, a UFO repeatedly showed on radars, prompting airport officials to dispatch a helicopter to inspect the unusual object, however they subsequently admitted they were unable to locate it. A flight to Frankfurt was canceled due to the incident, while an aircraft to Munich was diverted to Hannover. Even several witnesses said that the weird object was illuminated on both sides by red and green lights.
As Timewell said, it is quite bizarre that an amateur with a drone could halt a major airport like Gatwick. Nevertheless, it is strange that the British army has dispatched a "special team" to intercept something unknown. As is typical in these situations, people are content with the official version if they do not consider alternative options for even a second.
What is truly concealed by the closing of the United Kingdom's second-busiest airport? Does it include UFOs? Or a reason to stop using drones?
