Massachusetts Mystery Plane Not a Drone

May 10, 2013 No Comments by

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.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
