Spotted this in the normal transatlantic aie traffic.

Anyone identify it or seen similar?

Looks to me like a 767 making the crossing. I find it interesting the right wing is missing, but it could be anything. The camera, wing could be in a cloud, or it's just flat out not visible from the angle the shot was taken. The blown up version in the corner you can really make out the tail. Keep looking... the truth is out there.

Looks like a UAV to me.

Predator Drone

Lots of UAV pics

Could be. It shape is strange to me, especially near the wing where it protrudes from the body, almost looks like something is cut out.

I'll just keep my eyes to the skies for another shot of it someday.

Thanks for replying,

Mob

Have to agree, there is no visible windows on the object, at least not what I can see. It is also difficult to judge the size of the object, since there is nothing close by to compare it with

Thats very promising, can they make a trans Atlantic journey.

Thanks,

Could be, but we're talking about transatlantic flights he's snapping pictures of. I doubt it's a UAV as there is certain navigational requirements of transoceanic travel. After a certain distance from the coast you go from being under positive control of the land based radars back to the old days of position reporting along with your speed, altitude, and estimated time to the next reporting point. UAVs I would say most likely do not have the required avionics and radios to make a crossing (or the range) even to Greenland.

Did it fly consistent with a plane's flight? If so, I think you have your answer. At that distance, it would make sense that windows could get blurred out from the brightness of the plane's body.

A Mariner drone may be a good candidate though.

I also doubt that a UAV would be traversing the Atlantic, but it could be launched from a ship and used for reconaissance and scouting missions. Perhaps sub hunting? Perhaps weather recon? Perhaps drug interdiction?

I think they do have the capability of staying aloft for very long periods time, but I don't think there would be a need to traverse the Atlantic or make a one-way trip. In all likelihood it was launched from a ship or small island nearby.

Any idea what your location was when the pic was snapped?

It was probably at 30,000 or so, I see this regular air traffic a lot here, not much between here and Ireland.

It could be but it just doesn't look like the normal stuff we see daily here.

Just curious.

Thanks,

Mob

Even more likely UAV candidate

This one has the wings curved upward like the OP picture. It is over water, and a military ship is visible below. This is also a Canadian version so it would likely be used over the Atlantic.

Yes sir, about 1 mile from our airport. Near Sydney, NS

Looks like a C-5A USAF transport.

Thanks for that info.

Stars for everyone who helped.

There is a central leak of the suspension mechanism.
No so much a leak but the action is caught by the camera.
I think I found a similar centralized suspension:

The central spot contains some device that shows up in photos.
Now we see sparks from the central suspension.
Looks like a simple case for identifying a Tesla propulsion device.
Suspension sparks not a wing plane or no wing plane in my example.

Tomahawk missile?

They fly fast and low and with explosives.
And with proper markings.
This is shining bright from some earth to sky electrical
circuit similar to the Earth itself.

Yep, that's why I said a Mariner might be a good candidate. Are you sure of your (OP) estimation of altitude? (a smaller drone, could be thought of as being higher, if comparing it to the size of a jet liner, when really it's smaller and lower)..... Also, how can you be sure this wasn't launched from a ship, etc.?
