Drone Sightings Near NYC Airport Prompts Investigation

By    |   Thursday, 20 Nov 2014 09:03 AM

Three commercial pilots reported drones flying near their planes as they approached New York City's Kennedy Airport this week, prompting a federal investigation.

The Associated Press reported the FAA as saying the latest incident occurred Wednesday as a JetBlue flight from Savannah, Georgia, reported spotting a drone when it was about two miles from the runway.

On Sunday, a Virgin Atlantic flight from London reported a drone sighting at about 3,000 feet near the jet. At about the same time, a Delta flight from San Diego reported a drone near one of its wings.

The FAA said in a statement that none of the pilots took evasive action. All three flights landed safely.

Nassau County police said they investigated, but did not locate any devices.
