    Auckland Airport says there was a confirmed sighting of a drone around 7pm, a strangely high 12-thousand feet.

    A passenger flying from Taupo to Auckland, Sean Willmot, says it was a short disturbance but the airline and pilot were very professional and even gave them lollies for waiting.

    He says there were a few mutterings condemning the idiot.
