Two near-misses renew fears drones could cause major air accident
One came within six metres of a Boeing 767 preparing to land at Manchester while the other passed close to an Airbus A320 above London
Fears that drones could cause a major air accident have been reignited after two more near-misses in London and Manchester, with one drone passing over the wing of a passenger jet.
Investigators said a drone about 2ft (60cm) wide had just missed the right wing of a Boeing 767 that was coming in to land at Manchester airport.
