A story reported in New Scientist.com claimed that the crash of a Schiebel unmanned air vehicle into a control truck near Incheon South Korea last week was the result of an operator error and not, as was earlier reported, due to the machine’s loss of a GPS signal during the flight.

The report appeared in preliminary findings by Korea’s Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board. The accident killed one Schiebel engineer and injured two remote pilots.
