We've already seen Blackhawk helicopters with armed men weaving between high rises in what was called a routine training exercise -- although some questioned if it was in preparation for the summit -- and now there has been a possible drone sighting the week before the event, which begins May 20.
The local CBS affiliate noticed a video posted on YouTube Sunday showing what is described by the narrator as "an odd little plane" in the suburb Elgin, which is 40 miles from Chicago. Watch the video:
The sky is overcast and whatever is flying is difficult to see, but here are a couple screenshots.
Some comments on the YouTube video speculate it is a fake, while others take it at face value. Here are a few of the reasons some think it's a farce:
- ericlw: Fake. First the lighting on the drone is wrong. Second, the drone does not move at all just goes in a straight line.
- L4c3rt4: The camera movement appears to be a bit unrealistic. Im not a video analyst expert, but i have seen enough fake UFO videos with almost the same kind of camera movement - obvious sign of editing.
- pickelurweapon: Fake. It's obvious in the trajectory from left to right across the screen.
- Digitaleye31: It's fake. It's moving too fast and it's shining on a cloudy day...not to mention it's my job to fly them.
What are your thoughts?
