A drone has brought an airport in the UK to a standstill and Die Hard fans are waiting for American actor Bruce Willis to show up and resolve the situation.

In case you haven't watched or read the news in the past 48 hours, UK's second-biggest airport Gatwick has been shut down by a "deliberate" drone disruption, stranding hundreds of thousands of passengers.

Flights have been diverted or grounded since two drones, believed by Sussex Police to be of an "industrial specification," were spotted near the airfield.

While the search for the perpetrators who have brought air traffic in and out of London's Gatwick Airport to a halt, furious passengers and commenters took to social media to vent their anger. Many couldn't wrap their heads around the fact that a 'toy' could have such an impact on the commute.












Twitterati didn't mind messing around with the world with their drone jokes.










This was when people got reminded of police officer John McClane, who single-handedly (duh!) rescues thousands of passengers on and off ground, during a terrorist hostage situation in Die Hard 2 and eventually saves the day. Yippee-ki-yay, motherf**ker!

























A quick summary of what unfolds in 1990's Die Hard 2, the second film of the popular action movie franchise.

New York cop John McClane finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time once again and this time at Washington's Dulles Airport where he's waiting for his wife's plane to arrive.

This is when he discovers that the airport is under threat and its landing system will soon be sabotaged. His worst nightmare comes true as the criminals, who wish to free a drug baron, hold airport hostage and present their demands.

Not the one to run away, John devices a strategy to save the passengers and bring his wife Holly McClane's plane back to safety.
