I just heard about this Plane/Drone Collision
It's because of idiots such as this we all suffer

“The exact cause is still being investigated,”  crew heard a loud bang on landing approach, seen nothing, media speculation again without evidence. Sure it could well have been a drone as could it have been a bird.

It may turn out to have been a drone or it may turn out not to have been one.

The last time I heard one of these reports, it was widely reported as a fact that it had been a drone, but then much more quietly later on found out not to have been. In any case, no need to rush to judgment; the facts will eventually come out.

OK, I suppose that we shall just wait for the investigation. Whatever hit it should have left some remains in the nosecone.
Until then it's just another media beat-up or as a certain person likes to call it 'fake news'
