An amateur drone pilot has sparked a security review of Britain’s biggest and most technologically advanced aircraft carrier after landing his handheld drone on the deck of the carrier while it was docked in Scotland.

The unidentified pilot told British media that he conducted a flyover of the HMS Queen Elizabeth using his DJI Phonton drone when it was docked Invergordon in July.

During the flight, the drone even made an emergency landing on the deck of the carrier due to high winds, but it was able to take off again after the pilot snapped a few pictures. The pilot posted the footage on a local drone photography Facebook group on Friday morning, but the footage has since been taken down.  CLICK HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE
