This is what happens when a drone hits an airplane

NEW DELHI: Increase in recreational drone flights near airports in recent years become a cause of concern for the researchers.
Scientists at the University of Dayton Research Institute have conducted lab tests to determine what could happen to a general aviation aircraft when recreational drone strikes it at high speed in mid-air.
They have published a video of impact tests mimicking the collision of a quadcopter with the wing of an aircraft at 383km/h (238mph).
And the result is not pretty as it goes against your expectation that the quadcopter will shatter instead it tore open the wing of an aircraft.
They said the test “prove large aircraft won’t always win in a collision with small drones” and these hundreds of thousands remotely controlled personal unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) posed a threat to airplanes.
