YVR officials are appealing to the public to use common sense — after someone flew yet another drone over the airport.
It’s become a recurring problem for airports across the country: thrill seeking drone pilots — trying to get a close-up look at restricted airspace.
And YVR’s Brant Arnold-Smith says Sunday’s incident shows the problem is getting worse.
“Unfortunately they are increasing in number, and it’s a major safety concern for aircraft that are on approach – and also leaving our airport.”
Arnond-Smith says the drone never made it over a runway — and thankfully no aircraft were around at the time.
Police responded around 3:30 Sunday afternoon — but it’s still unclear if anyone was arrested.
