July 2, 2014 – Richmond RCMP are investigating after a drone was reported flying dangerously close to aircraft at Vancouver's YVR airport on Monday.
A concerned citizen spotted the drone, a remote-controlled aircraft, adjacent to the glide path of planes landing at Vancouver airport.
RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski said police want to publicize the dangers of remote-controlled aircraft, also known as UAVs, or unmanned aerial vehicles.
"It puts people in danger and puts them at risk, puts the community at risk," said Kowalski. "We take these incidents very seriously."
"It's incredibly dangerous and incredibly stupid, so we will investigate this every way that we possibly can."
Canada’s Transportation agency is already investigating an earlier incident, in which video — shot from a drone — was posted on YouTube showing a landing passenger jet at Vancouver airport. | READ MORE
