A drone crashed into a Boeing plane, causing substantial damage to the aircraft as it went to land at an airport in Mozambique.

The Boeing 737-700 belonging to airline Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) was struck as it approached Tete airport, according to the Aviation Herald.

The crew heard a loud bang but continued their approach, suspecting a bird had struck the plane. However, later examination revealed the damage was more substantial than initially thought and caused by an apparent drone collision.
