Heard an airliner flying over lower than usual and off the usual routings into Bordeaux last night, saw it was a diverted Easyjet flight from Faro to Gatwick. on FR24. Wondered why.

Press reports (always to be viewed with scepticism) say two drones were involved and report social media (just as awful) are saying up to seven drones were seen.
I did wonder if I was not the only one wondering about this, after all we are presumably talking about personal drones, which aren't very big, not easy to spot in daylight, let alone 9pm at night over a well lit area... Lots of Social media footage of delayed pax - Im surprised there is no photo of the suspected drone (or 7 drones?).
Cant deny the delays/diversions though - I saw one myself!
Its generally best to make a hole in the sky.......not the ground...
