Transcript for Drone Has Near Miss With US Airways Jet in North Carolina
New worries this morning about the dangers of drones. One of them apparently came way too close to a plane about to land. The pilot radioing air traffic control and Mara schiavocampo is here with more. Mara, good morning. Reporter: Dan, good morning. That remote controlled drone flying thousands of feet in the airway too close to that plane causing a really tense period of concern just moments before landing. This morning, the federal aviation administration investigating a close call for a us airways flight. A pilot spotting a drone right in the aircraft's path as he prepared to land at Charlotte Douglas airport Wednesday. It was about 2,100 feet deep and it was just off our left side, and maybe 100 feet awart are the quad grdrquadrb copter hovering 2100 feet in the air. It's really scary. Reporter: This isn't the first near miss at Charlotte Douglas. FAA records showing in July of last year a passenger jet on approach when the pilot reported a black and white drone buzzing just 100 feet below him. The reason we don't want a drone anywhere close is because of the possibility of one being ingested in an engine and doing damage. Reporter: At Laguardia airport a drone soaring at nearly 3,000 feet over a Brooklyn park forcing a delta shuttle pilot to pull the plane up 200 feet to avoid hitting it. You have some people who just regardless of what rules are out there they'll do what they want to do. Reporter: That plane landed without further incident and no one injured. The FAA does have a number of regulations regarding drones including not flying near any manned aircraft or even within sight of the operator. We seem to be hearing about these more and more. I suspect we'll continue to hear about it. Not going away. The FBI making a bombshell
