a Drone Hits an Airplane Wing

With hundreds of thousands of personal UAVs currently in public hands, is a matter of time when drone strike on an aircraft occur.  Whats the video…

While tests on bird strikes have been conducted for decades, what kind of damage a drone would cause was still virtually unknown…until now. Researchers at the University of Dayton research institute are no strangers to airframe impact testing, and they recently partnered with Sinclair College National UAS Training and Certification Center to determine what could happen to a general aviation aircraft if it hit a recreational drone in mid air.
