High flying drone comes within 8-feet of Delta flight landing at Orlando International Airport

A Southwest Airlines pilot reported seeing a drone flying 2000-feet over Orlando International Airport Thursday afternoon.

Moments later, a Delta Airlines pilot reported that the same drone narrowly missed their windshield by 8-feet.

The FAA limits the altitude of drone flight to 400 feet and areas around airports are highly restricted air space.

The incident was captured on the conversation between the pilots and Orlando’s air traffic control.
