i am not buying the lawyers take that competitions in general will break the FAA intent expressed in their letter. Even if cash prizes are awarded, there is ample precedent in current FAA policy that...

I am relaying what American Airlines appears to have stated in one of the reports that i linked above. There was no evidence of the encounters. Ergo, it went officially unreported.

I mentioned his lack of RC knowledge in my post and I agree his content to noise ratio is very low.

Interesting stuff here at the link below. The writer does not know jack about RC, but he makes a good case for the FAA trying to scaremonger some basis for controlling all sUAS after they flunked...

All that makes the point I am going for. It was not a QF-4. It was not the Collins Foundation F-4. It was not a real aircraft. They would have radar evidence of it at that location on approach over...

Just pointing out that they are not flown over oceans only, in reference to your post mentioning oceans.

And they are not flown over Tallahassee either, in this incident, or there would be lots...

They crashed a QF-4 at Holloman AFB in Feb. They are only operated there and at Tyndall AFB in FL. The QF-4s are scheduled to stop flying sometime during 2014, with a transition to QF-16s thereafter....

And the odds of a big noisy smokey QF-4 accidently overflying downtown Tallahassee at 2300 feet and no one but the pilot of the airliner seeing it are even more remote. Not to mention that the large...

The odds of Eglin AFB operating a QF-4 over the Talahassee city center at 2300 feet are extremely remote. Range safety for target drone ops out over the gulf is pretty stringent, as well.

I am not yet satisified that this was indeed an R/C model of any kind, much less a F-4, and not some sort of misidentified uUAS.

The contact was reported about 5 miles NE of the Tallahassee...
