QUINCY (CBS) A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so?
Its frightening, not just weird, but frightening, said one resident of the Wollaston section.
Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows whats going on, but the agency isnt telling.
I mean it is strange. I dont know if theyre looking for somebody, I have no idea, one resident told WBZ.
Its not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials.
Its frustrating, it really is, says City Councillor Brian Palmucci. I specifically asked, Is it a law enforcement flight? Can we tell people that? He said, No, we cant tell you that. Then I asked that when folks call me can I at least tell them that it is something that they shouldnt worry about, its something they shouldnt be concerned with? He said, I cant tell you that.
The aircraft doesnt appear to be flying when its cloudy out, only taking to the skies on starlit nights.

Up next, a 3D-printable surface to air missile!
Although, an Estes rocket with a seeker head would probably not be all that difficult...

OH FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE! Go back inside and hide under the bed!
Obviously when the federal government wants to keep something quiet, they keep it very quiet. In this case, they wouldnt even say how long it would continue flying for.
The FBI does not comment on aerial activity, a statement from the bureau said.
Shoot it down...claim self defense....make sure someone is nearby to record
This is a VERY odd statement ("this time"), almost implying they goofed up before.. Russian fighter jets 'training' over U.S. territory? Wouldn't surprise me.
I’m thinking a 20 million candle watt portable flashlight x about 20 citizens would be enough to make any effective use of the drone.
Easy enough to find out, really.
Don’t forget to fashion up a nice tinfoil hat made from heavy-duty recycle aluminum!!!!
Looks like a camera to me?
If that is the “mystery” aircraft, then it’s a Cessna 182 Skylane with a Flir Ball on the side. Flir is just an infrared camera used for picking up heat signatures of bad guys. Most likely some sort of Law Enforcement/Government Mission. Portland, Oregon Police Department fly one just like it.

Very informative report.
probably student pilots getting night qualification
