Pilot to copilot: WTF, did you see that?
Copilot: Yeah, I saw it too, what the hell could it be? Was that a UFO?
Pilot: shht! You wanna file a UFO report?
Copilot: Hell no!
Pilot: Definitely a drone then.
Copilot: Yeah, definitely.
The Germans (after inventing time travel) already had DJI drones in WW2 since B17 and accompanying fighter regularly reprted being followed by (sometimes multiple) small round objects with flashing coloured lights.
The number of UFO reports is getting suspiciously low the last 2 years.
No airline pilot wants to report a UFO, ever.
Lucky for them there are drones.now.
Confirming to see a drone of 2-3 feet diameter at only 50feet distance, while moving with a velocity difference of at least 120 knots (if in the same direction), come on.
If I pass any 2-3feet diameter object at 50 feet while driving 120 knots (did something like that on the german autobahn last week), I really don't know what I saw once I passed it.
