The unidentified drone operator could face legal trouble
Sometimes your fun can turn into a deadly threat for others, which happened recently in Las Vegas, where a flying drone dangerously came close to a Jetplane landing. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating a drone right above a jet landing at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
The FAA is looking for the person and investigating who flew this drone so close to an airplane. The unidentified drone operator could face jail time or get slapped with a Huge fine as a punishment.
The FAA can fine individuals up to $1,437 for each violation of flight safety rules. Business’ fines can reach $32,666 per violation. Then there are criminal penalties of up to $250,000 in fines and three years in prison.
Well, the drone is seriously prohibited near the Airports, and neither is going above 400 feet. In FAA reports, the drones are capable of causing way more damage than birds, especially to a plane’s windshield and wings.
Although the pictures are mesmerizing, but it is a severe case regarding the safety of the flight and its passengers. People on social media also condemned the drone operator.
