Airliner Almost Hits Unmanned Drone In Mid-Air

The American Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that an unmanned drone just barely missed hitting a commercial airliner in mid-air.

The collision almost occurred in March, between US Airways Flight 4650 from Charlotte to Florida and an unidentified drone.

"The airline pilot said that he thought the [drone] was so close to his jet that he was sure he had collided with it," said FAA drone chief Jim Williams.

The video above shows the moment that everything almost turned to disaster.
