Dubai airport closed on Saturday, after a drone was spotted in its airspace.
The airport was closed for a little over an hour, grounding flights at another nearby airport that shared flight paths, according to The National, an Abu Dhabi government-owned news group.
Unauthorized drone flights have closed the Dubai airport before — twice already this year, in fact. Dubia airport is, by law, a no-fly zone for drones. Meanwhile, drones have become so ubiquitous that NASA is experimenting with air traffic control protocols that manage the low flying aircraft.
