An amateur photographer bypassed the protection system of Britain's largest aircraft carrier

British amateur photographer managed to bypass the system of protection of the largest aircraft carrier of the British Navy, Queen Elizabeth, and land the quadrocopter directly on its deck.

The incident took place in the port of Invergordon, it was reported. A local photographer used a quadrocopter to take aerial photos of ships moored in the port. The wind got up during the photoshooting and the quadrocopter made an automatic landing – exactly on the deck of the best British warship.

The photographer immediately informed the guards about the incident and left his contacts, but he later noted on his page in the social network that he had not been contacted. The photographer also stressed that he could easily destroy a ship that cost the budget of the UK more than 3 billion pounds, simply by attaching a pair of kilograms of plastid to the quadroopter.

The Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom has already made an official statement where representatives of the military department reported on the revision and significant strengthening of security measures.
