Just repeating, damage may depend on if they enter the engine. There are hard parts in a drone, which, if not bringing down the plane, can cause expensive damage to fan blades etc.

You don;t need to hit an aircraft to cause damage, as can be seen by the effect of drone(s) entering the airspace of an airport in holiday season :

"Damage" in this case used rather loosely.

It depends on how you define "damage", it's certainly not going to be cheap in financial terms or "damages" as referred to in legal terms..

Re: Drone striking Southwest Airlines 737 -- how it was faked

Gary - damage is probably used loosely. "damage" should have been in all upper case, as in DAMAGE!

According to one dictionary definition:
The Damage | Definition of The Damage by Merriam-Webster
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/the%20damage
Definition of the damage. informal. : the amount of money that something costs "What's the damage?" he asked, pulling out his wallet.

From the BBC:
110,000 passengers due to arrive or depart on Thursday
760 flights due to arrive or depart on Thursday
10,000 passengers affected on Wednesday
2.9 million (make that MILLION) total passengers due to pass through over Christmas New Year

How can one put a dollar (or Pound) value on that?
Just about everyone is flying for some purpose: wedding, attend a funeral, business trip, one of their only vacations in the year, etc. Then there is the cost of lodging reservations, vacation bookings, business deals (perhaps some critical), etc. What about someone flying because they have to take an exam?

Taxi cabs charging 600 for stranded passengers that have to get somewhere ...
Then there is the added cost for businesses like credit card companies, hotels, etc that have to deal with adjustments...

So, while 'damage' (physical) wasn't done, there was an enormous amount of financial damage. Much more than anyone of us could put a monetary value on, and all due to a drone.

Re: Drone striking Southwest Airlines 737 -- how it was faked

I can definitely put a dollar/pound value on that, given the fake video that started this thread. It's far more preferable to have this situation than a plane being brought down by a drone by causing literal damage to its chassis or engine. This is annoyance and delays, not potential death and disaster.

How about that?
