Ok, who was it?
DULLES, Va. (WJLA/ABC News) - The Federal Aviation Administration said it was investigating a close call Thursday between a drone and a plane landing at Dulles International Airport.

The crew of a jetliner reported seeing an unmanned aircraft while on approach to one of the airport's runways around 11 a.m.

The pilot of Trans States Airlines Flight 3340 said the drone was flying at an altitude of about 1,000 feet and was roughly three to four miles from the airport.

The Embraer E145 aircraft landed safely without incident, the FAA said.

Not banned, further restriction- maybe, less tolerant- probably.

Typical Media conflation: they show what appears to be a blackened P2V and call it a 'commercial drone'.

Well, what's done is done I guess. Let's see the video now and never mention this again.
