    I guess its possible. The 1960s site has a way smaller footprint than anyone would expect so it might not be that hard to conceal one. The hatch door on the one I know of is probably only 20' in diameter and if I didn't know it was there I never would have found it accidentally.

    Any more word on these things. Seems like it was all just swept under the rug and ignored. Anything every come out about who was behind it?

    Drones are all over the place now, I wonder if some people are just seeing their neighbors drone and trying to relate it to what's going on out west???

    You don't own the airspace above your property, and drones are considered aircraft. So shooting one down could get you into major (federal) trouble. I would highly recommend you not shoot one down. But, if you want to do it for our amusement, go ahead. Just broadcast it and the trial live so we can follow along.

    My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw the drones at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

    I know I'm not doing it. But someone else needs to. And film it like you said, of course.

    Not sure. I may have known the answer a MONTH AGO when I made the post. Then again I could have been just joking at the time.

    Yes I’m not sure if it was a red or green laser sight. He said he was watching through his scope and thought what the hell he’d put his sight on it. He lives north east of Lincoln, I live around the Hebron fairbury area and they’ve been around here also. I have a decent still picture of one it just a light though. These are high dollar ones, I’d estimate 6 foot wing span, there fuel propelled not battery
