A plane was forced to alter its approach route to Lisbon airport on Monday after the aircraft ahead of it crossed paths with a drone.

The France Soleil plane changed its approach after a TAP plane said it had come within close proximity of a drone while coming in to land.
The pilot of the TAP airbus A340 from Maputo reported seeing a drone over the major Segunda Circular road.

There have been 16 incidents involving drones and civil aviation reported in Portugal since January.
