A plane was forced to take make an emergency landing at the Niagara Falls airport to avoid colliding with a drone. It happened in the area of Shawnee and Slusaric Road in Wheatfield around 11 Friday night. Now, area aviation experts are questioning how drones might be regulated in the future.
Drones have become popular in the past decade. And now larger drones could soon be used for commercial purposes. But an unknown drone operator caused the pilot to take action. Bob Miller is a pilot, aviation analyst and a member of the American Model Association. He says he sees both sides of the issue. “We trust that the person that is operating them has some basic degree of understanding and wisdom,” he said.
