I gotta tell ya, though. Quite a number of us have been eagerly awaiting your and Dave's analysis of the photo sent to you by Springer from this
Can you give us eager beavers a rough time estimate on when you can chime in with your take on it? I know you're busy, and all.
And congrats on the guitar shop! Very cool.
I cant speak for Dave, but for my stance (and probably not a popular one) it's a radio controlled B2 model. This was my email to Spinger:
"One, look at the photo. The "craft is clear, as is the tree adjacent to it. Now look at the foreground tree on the left side. That thing is small,
and it's between those 2 trees in distance. I'm talking small like an "Air Hogs" B2 model. There is little to zero atmospheric haze, and
therefore no significant distance.
Point of the story, small and close. I'd call it a hoax using small rc B2 model."
It's really pretty simple due to lack of distance haze, whatever it is, it's close and small. It could be a misidentification rather then a direct
hoax by the shooter...if he saw this and shot it, he's not doing anything wrong. However if a friend was flying it from a little distance...you get
Past that, it's not the greatest quality and thats about all I get from it - the atmospheric lacking parts being it's death-knell.
