Playstation Virtual Reality

Has anyone any experience of using this piece of kit or any other for that matter? I'm looking at purchasing one to pass some time away whilst locked down, is it worth the money?

Re: Iran accused of shooting ukranian plane down .

I rest my case...now reports coming out that it was a technical failure. Pictures of a 'missile' are unconfirmed and highly dubious it seems.

Well in an ideal world they wouldn't, which is why airfields employ wildlife control units to minimise the risk. I stress the word minimise though, because you obviously can't remove this risk completely.

Most common drones would not be able to bring down an airliner. The flight deck windows are very strong and are able to withstand a large-bird strike without failing.

Wouldnt a plane jus smash thru a drone? No. It obviously depends on the weight of the drone and the speed of the impact.
