If it was a hobbyist, this kind of news does not help our hobby.

Sensationalism in the news? The drone was five miles out but the headline in the clip says it was spotted "over JFK". I agree that drones close to major airports is a problem, but short of it carrying a nuclear device, five miles out is not gonna affect JFK at all. From the headline, I would have expected the drone to have been spotted over the center of the main runway or buzzing the control tower. Not the case.

I kinda wonder how a pilot of a jet liner flying at 1500 feet at a speed of 150 + mph spotted a 4 rotor drone that with a diameter of 36 inches. It really seems exagerated if not fabricated.
