    okay, footage of a drone being filmed using a phone, yet it didn't look like it came from a mobile.

    Why does it need to have come from a mobile? What was the footage of?

    I suspect, although I don't know because I didn't see the news article, that it was generic footage from a drone to show what it looks like. But even if it wasn't, I don't see how footage from a drone proves it wasn't a drone and was instead aliens (or something else).

    I think Alpha's just trying to say that in this day and age it seems odd that no one managed to get any footage of it. Unless it was actually a superspeed alien craft.

    Yeah, I know, but as I said it's not that easy to get a picture of a drone, they are small and the area around the airport is very big, as evidenced by the fact that the police couldn't find them. They weren't flying them near the terminal after all, it was out beyond the perimeter which is a fair distance away. Some of time was at night too.

    People think that with all our modern technology everything is possible, but these things still have limitations, and it seemed perfectly reasonable to me that there wouldn't be mobile phone film of it. There was some film though, I can't remember who took it, that appeared to show a drone. It was just a black speck though, which is to be expected.

    I just don't think that the unlikely option of aliens is more likely than what I have said, and it was just some idiots trying to cause disruption for one reason or another. Don't get me wrong, I've a lot of time for you, Alpha, and your opinions on things, I just don't agree with ya on this one.

    Of course, now the police claim there wasnt a Drone after all. So what was seen flying over Gatwick Airport?

    Gawd knows, maybe it was aliens after all.

    If there were no drones then what a lot of disruption for God knows what reason. I wonder if someone was putting in false reports for some reason. It's all very mystifying.
