    a embarrassment that a international airport in the UK was brought to a standstill for 2 days by a drone ... so hats off to Israel for providing a speedy solution to this growing menace ... i can see this system being a good earner for Rafael as more airports will look to secure their airspace

                  an absolute riddy (red face) for the Police, media .... myself for being so easily duped

                  they have potentially ruined that couples life .... the damages claim will have to be big because more then likely they will have to leave the area after being vilified nationally and internationally a utter cluster f*ck
