But how could it be civilian. I own 5 of them. I lose sight of them at 400-500 ft. I can't believe a reporter saw a civilian quad, hexa, octa, etc.
copter. If so, It must have been industrial size. I know it wasn't a DJI model. DJI's software prevents invasion or even takeoff near restricted
airspace, such as military. Maybe it was some homemade hobbyist job. Or one of those 12,000 dollar fixed wing drones. They have a huge wing span and
can take of vertically. Most are operated by commercial civilian users, not recreational users. Anyway, It's possible, but it would have needed a lot
of speed and been very large for it to be visible from a jet. BY THE WAY, I (my drone) WAS TRACKED DOWN AND FOLLOWED BY A POLICE HELICOPTER ONCE, WHEN
FLYING MY DRONE AT NIGHT, due to a neighbor's complaint. The police weren't familiar with FAA guidelines until I taught them that night. They left
without incident. My point is, if someone was flying a drone near air force one, that drone would have been followed or tracked to it's landing point.
Electric copter drones only have a max of 45 min flight time. They could have easily followed it until it landed. That's what the police did to find
me. If the police would follow a drone, just because a neighbor's complaint, I would think the federal government would take this drone flying around
AF1 a little more seriously.
