German drone missed Afghan plane carrying 100 passengers by just two metres....Germany Has Armed Drones?

The video filmed from on board the unmanned Luna drone as it flew over Afghanistan, shows how close it came to crashing into the Ariana passenger plane. The plane's left engine can be seen coming within metres of the drone's camera (left and right). The 88lb German drone was caught in air turbulence created by the Ariana passenger plane, before losing control and crash landing near the Afghan capital, Kabul. It has caused outrage in Germany as debate rages about the Government's new order of drones. The German Defence Minister Thomas de Maiziere is fighting for his political career today over fury at the 'drone debacle' after he scrapped the 'Euro Hawk' (inset), programme.
