Israeli drone becomes first to land by remote at international airport

Heron UAV from Israel Aerospace Industries landed at Ben-Gurion Airport using technology that lets drones integrate into airspace alongside long-haul commercial flights

An Israeli drone last week became the first unmanned aerial vehicle in the world to land by remote control at an international airport.

The entire flight, including landing, was controlled from a station in the country’s north.
