Wow, there sure are a lot of people here in Tampa!
I've been here (Tampa) for school for almost 5 years now, and I haven't seen very much. But then again, I never go to the coast (I'm not a beach
person). I'll keep my eyes posted though, now that I see there have been many sightings here!
Wow. I moved down to Tampa from Brooklyn about 6 years ago. I hate this place. God, I hate this place.
The craft Shadowy saw could not have been a conventional aircraft.
The aerodynamic behavior of the craft already prove that it cannot have been a conventional aircraft.
First of all, there are only a limited number of aircraft that can hover (VTOL aircraft, look it up) and most of these aircraft only have a 5-10
minute window to hover before the engines run out of cooling water, overheat, and fail.
Secondly, neither a military or personal helicopter could hover at such a great altitude so steadily for so long. Personal helis engines aren't
strong enough to go that high, and the cockpits aren't sealed well enough to prevent oxygen loss. There is not oxygen supplementation, meaning that a
pilot without an oxygen tank would pass out at such a high altitude.
And we all know what what means.
