Airport closure

UK was forced to suspend its runways for a total of 14 minutes

On the 2nd of July Gatwick Airport closed the runways because a drone was flown in restricted airspace.Below is a visualization of the holding pattern

Here you can see two holding patterns planes had to fly to stay away from airport,as you can guess fuel runs out so some had to land at different airports.

Watch the shocking video below, Nats used aircraft data to make the video

It just shows the chaos that will come from maybe flying a simple drone in a park too close .
