Drone spotted by pilot near Love Field

Dallas Air One was called to investigate a report of a drone near Love Field Airport Tuesday night.

A Virgin America pilot reported seeing the drone near the Crescent Hotel in downtown Dallas.

Police did not find anything.

Air traffic control asked other pilots about the drone. The audio was recorded by LiveATC.net.

"Air Bus 319 just reported on about a 2-mile final to the right side a lit drone flew over the top of them at approximately 2 to 300 feet above him and he was 1,000 to 1,000 feet," the tower said.

The pilots of Dallas Air One asked people to fly drones responsibly and in safe areas.

Drones are not supposed to fly near commercial planes or out of the sight of the operator.
