On the 20th April it was revealed that a Pacific Blue 737-800 had been involved in a near miss with a model aircraft whilst on final approach to Perth International airport's runway 03. It was alleged that the owner and operator of the model aircraft had took off from a park nearby and delibretly flown the model aircraft with in 30 metres of the 737-800, this has since sparked a CASA (civil aviation safety authority) investigation into the incident. Police and CASA are continuing with their investigations. Fortunately the model aircraft intercepted the 737's jetwash (or more commonly known as wake turbulence) which in turn caused it to spiral towards the ground.Video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u7sXslgo8gI hope nobody will try to hit the Space Station with a RC Rocket :)
