Photos of one of the planes that have been flying over Quincy, Mass., show that, despite suspicions, the aircraft is not a drone. The Cessna 182T, a single-engine light plane, which residents have captured in photos, has been flying overhead for weeks turning circles around the Quincy and Milton air space.
Although people have gotten a better look at what the plane is, it’s still unclear what it’s doing or who’s doing it.
“We’ve received a couple more phone calls and the response is the same,” said Christopher Walker, spokesperson for Mayor Thomas Koch. “The FAA confirmed that it is a sanctioned flight, and there is no information beyond that.”
FAA spokespeople have said the aircraft is not a drone, but refused to elaborate on the machine’s purpose. The tail number, N906TM, which can be seen in one photo, is registered to a company called RKT Productions. The only information that could be found on the company is a post office box in Bristow, Va.
