First, a pilot flying west of Denver reported a mystery object near his plane. The FAA dismissed the report. Now, a US Air crew reported a "flare-like" object near their plane over Philadelphia. How long can they deny this?
The FAA is investigating a corporate jet pilot’s radio transmission that he saw a possible remote-controlled aircraft flying near his jet over Denver on May 14. On CNN.com, Michael Martinez quotes the pilot transmission to the air traffic control tower as saying, "A remote-controlled aircraft, or what, but something just went by the other way, about 20 to 30 seconds ago, and it was like a large remote-controlled aircraft."
