A recent release by the FAA said that a UAV and a U.S. Airways regional jet almost collided on 22 March. The report quoted the jet’s pilot as saying the unmanned model aircraft was heading straight for him. The aircraft, Flight 4650 arriving from Charlotte, North Carolina, was in its landing approach over Tallahassee when the incident occurred. The drone was described as a small, camouflaged F-4 fixed wing aircraft. The disclosure was made by Jim Williams, head of the FAA’s Unmanned-Aircraft Office, at a conference on drones Thursday in San Francisco. The FAA is investigating the incident, which caused no damage. (Image Credi: Wikipedia)
