Remember how a week ago, British Airways thought that they had collided with a drone? British authorities are speculating that they might have hit something a bit more harmless: a plastic bag.
According to The Telegraph, Transport minister Robert Goodwill noted that they hadn’t confirmed that the plane had collided with a drone:
Mr Goodwill said: “The reported drone strike on Sunday has not been confirmed it was actually a drone. It was the local police force that tweeted that they had a report of a drone striking an aircraft.
“And indeed the early reports of a dent in the front of the plane were not confirmed — there was no actual damage to the plane and there’s indeed some speculation that it may have even been a plastic bag or something.
