Drones can be used for good, but it depends on who's flying them. The recent drama at London's Gatwick Airport is a real-life example of how even an amateur drone pilot can disrupt major infrastructure. Now that suspects have been arrested and a drone has been captured, what's next? Drone forensics is an emerging field that finds hidden clues inside these popular flying gadgets.
The New York Times reports that British authorities arrested a couple for allegedly flying drones that forced Gatwick Airport to cancel or divert more than 1,000 flights over three days right before Christmas, which disrupted travel for an estimated 140,000 people. In recent years, drones have also caused problems around the world by delivering contraband to prisons, crashing into crowds during a baseball game, and carrying drugs over international borders.
