Envoy Air passenger plane hits drone after Chicago takeoff

Posted by in category: drones

It seems we have another accident involving a drone.

An Envoy Air passenger plane reported striking a drone while departing Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Sunday, in what is the just most recent incident of uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAV) endangering commercial craft in restricted airspaces around the globe.

“Departure, Envoy 3,961 we just hit something,” a crew member is heard saying. “I believe we hit a drone about 30 seconds ago. We’d like to return to O’Hare.”
