Drone closes Gatwick Airport.

Someone has shut down Gatwick Airport, Britain's second largest airport, by flying a drone around it. Airport operations have been disrupted since last night, and Gatwick is not scheduled to reopen for some hours.

Hundreds of flights have been cancelled.

Wishing everyone flying into, out of, or through the best of luck.
