Chaos in Gatwick
Hundreds of flights were cancelled between 19 and 21 December last year at Gatwick airport in the UK, following reports of drone sighting near the runway. An estimated 140,000 passengers were affected by the incident, as well as over 1,000 flights. On the request of Sussex Police, the Army was deployed on 20 December to help deal with the situation.
