London (CNN)When a former accountant Linda Davidsen purchased a drone a few days ago, she did so with a very clear plan in mind. She would try to use it to bring chaos to Europe’s busiest airport.
The activists hoping to cause chaos at Europe’s busiest airport
Davidsen, 49, is one of several climate activists hoping to force Heathrow authorities to temporarily ground all flights by operating drones on Friday outside the airport’s perimeter fence, but within its no-fly zone.
Activists from the group, known as Heathrow Pause, say their drones will only be flown at head-height, far away from the runways and any planes, and pose no risk. Police disagree though, saying the airspace around all airports is “restricted for public safety and security.”
