OP video was entertaining. That's all ask of this place. Nice post!

Sadly, there are all sorts of industrial espionage capers going on using drones, and all sorts of solutions that do not involve shooting at them with firearms. Use The Google Luke! I was shocked at how long it took to resolve the issue at that airport.

This isn't two kids in Crawley.

This is an organised attack and potentially similar to Anonymous v2.0 using equipment like this attached to white man vans.

There is also a huge amount of greenspace around LGW that can be thermally protected.
No, it was a man and woman in their 40s and 50s, and they've already been released.

How 'bout that wacky journalist from your old stomping grounds? There is another opening for someone who makes up stories. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46624297

Car drivers should want us slow bikers to get out of their way in our own lane.... This way drivers can drive the way they want without us. xD

I would guess that they're related and like I said before. It will be very hard, if not impossible, to catch/stop them especially if it's a crew of people doing it. I still think it could be foreign activity.
