Let's say someone has bought one of those quad copter camera UAVs and wasn't completely aware of FAA rules regarding airspace and where they can fly their drone, etc. Then let's say that they flew it into the airspace of a Class B airport by accident.1 What would happen?
I assume the airport, if they knew about it, would shut down the airspace until the drone had cleared (kind of like that recent fire.) But after that, what happens? Does the FAA have a way to figure out who was flying the drone? And even if they do figure it out, is their an FAA based penalty for flying into controlled airspace with an unauthorized drone?
1 Here's an example of a Class B airport, for anyone who isn't sure what that is: Lambert-St. Louis International. So, basically, a really big airport.
For those who seem to think this question is a dupe of "Is it legal to fly a Quadrocopter/Drone into an Airport? What will happen?": The only fragments that kind of deal with my question are as thus:
From dvnrrs regarding legal action:
Were you to actually fly it over the fence, you could be charged with trespassing. If you had any intent to cause harm, other charges might apply (up to attempted murder if you were trying to bring down an airliner).
From ratchet freak regarding what the airport might do:
When the tower sees unauthorized entry of a drone they will clear the airspace and send security to catch the guy controlling it.
Both of these comments lack detail, and that's probably because both of those snippets are from answers that were mostly dealing with the safety aspects of the question rather than with the legal aspects (eg., could a drone actually cause damage). I am after the legal aspect, and I am looking for more detail than "It's not legal, you may get charged" plus "they'll send security."
CGCampbell did start down that road by listing a statute that contains more detailed rules about what you can do, but it doesn't say what will happen if you don't follow said rules.
I want to know what laws the FAA will use to prosecute, how they will track down the perpertrator and, lastly, what evidence they will need to either fine or charge them with a crime.
