man, I really, really hate to say this.

the drone is flying at a perfect speed and in a perfect line. no turbulence, etc. I know it would be hard to see via this camera etc, but something just feels wrong with this. (cgi?)

that's for sharing though. just two tiny copper pennies.



Knows where to look, VERY STEADY CAMERA, why didn't he follow it as it exited right? I wouldn't have stopped filming, personally. I'm not a digital video expert, though. Maybe there are reasons for this.

You're not wrong.

I think that people are going to have to hurt, personally, and very badly before any real resistance will take place. So many people like to sit back and be smugly pragmatic, thinking they're the coolest and smartest kid in the room because they're not getting all excited like the " lunatic fringe ". I dunno. I'd rather be the paranoid weirdo who sees it coming and risks looking like a fool than be so assured of my superiority that I actually AM the fool.

unfortunately we see in america the same patterns we saw in germany when hitler stated to rise up. still I think america is some 10 years or so away from having the one leader that will destroy it.

So how do we shoot them down people?

Then we need to shoot them down, they are terroristic in nature, even if it is the "government", it is still a threat that we must take seriously, the government is invading OUR sovereign airspace, NO military arms WITHIN any State border. It is the duty of the common Citizen to shoot down these invaders and threats to public safety!!!

Insurrection at it's finest.

Great, so now we've got armed, unmanned spy-craft patrolling residential US skies. Can you smell the freedom?!

I thought this site is about denying ignorance. This clearly is the work of trolls.

The blurring/out-of-focus-effect and camera shake in the second half of the video are made with an editing software. The background is a still-photo, taken from the last frame of the raw video footage.

Damn, I am starting to see how threads take off and get flagged and starred because people want to believe something sinister is taking place in America. People say things like "there are big things to come" and "this ties in with such an such". I am loosing interest in these topics, nothing is ever really going on and peoples imaginations are in high gear.

How long before an operator loses his marbles and drops a 2000lb jadam in that stadium? Hmm, or how about a would be terrorist pulling a " Hijacking" on one of these like Iran managed? It's great to know hell is flying above you and an accident could cost many civilian lives, or in the instance of their intended use, killing three civilians for the target. That's the minimum accepted Collateral right? I'm sure many more civilians have been caught with them before, with a single human target.

I personally think it's CGI. Something about it looks computer generated. Also, is it not strange that he had the camera focused on the sky before the drone flew across as if he were filming open sky and hoping to put a CGI drone in the shot later on? Furthermore, his reaction to the drone didn't seem natural. "Oh, that's an odd little plane". It just didn't sound like he was seeing something that was actually there and was instead just making commentary to try to make it seem believable.

That's just my take on it.

Personally I think this one might be cgi. People would go crazy if they saw a predator above (is it a kids ball game?).

However I will say if it was real and they started using them what people would dare rebel/dissent if they could be killed at any moment by death from the sky. The ones that are on missions are much higher and wouldn't be seen coming. Really if this is true it has to stop it would make the american people way paranoid. Actually this would be the first real terrorism americans have seen.

In other news, a kindergarten class of suspected al quaeda domestic terrorists was hit today by a predator drone...
I can see it now.


Well at least americans can feel how people in other countries feel having american drones over their heads... I hope they will not use them in US,but when u have them on your skies,it is matter of time when some idiot will give order to use them....

Yes, that is a sobering thing, isn't it? If not this one for being real then soon I'm sure. I'm not sure how much people would notice these, to be honest.

One of my trucking routes took me from Vegas up to Reno before I'd deliver and cross into California for produce. That ran right along Creech Air Force Base and the edge of the Nevada Test Site. Luckily for a bored trucker like me, there is a Casino with truck parking there at Creech and the back wall of the truck parking is the common wall to the base and basically, right there at the little drone shelters and flight line. Even if they weren't flying them, you could often see them parked right there and close enough to get a real good look at a Predator or Reaper. Whatever they had there...I saw a few I still haven't seen again to identify what they were. Experimental?

Anyway... Point on that being, when they took off and I'm watching that in person...they just blend in and vanish into the background of the sky in a shockingly short distance and altitude. Just....poof. Gone. It's an illusion of course, and size/distance..but you get what I mean. You'd have to catch them taking off to even see what they were.

Creech AFB Website

There is their site if anyone is curious. They have a rotating image gallery on the front page that show both the Predator and MQ-9 Reaper in-flight over their base. Even those shots make it easy to see what I mean about how they just...vanish into the background of the sky almost immediately.


I guess I want to believe there is an outside threat for these as much as anything because if they ARE being deployed to keep Americans in check, assuming things are going to get much worse, then that IS it in a lot of ways. Game, set and match. Between the cops with the tech to snoop us half to death on the ground and the Drones above with far more capability AND ordinance to put right into someone's window..I don't see where there is even room to suggest resistance. We could actually see a day where merely suggesting it in a serious way is not only known and recorded almost right away, but responded to as quickly. These are very disturbing times we're in.

I just now watched the video the OP had and i must say... That looks an awful lot like CGI. I hate the idea of Drones flying around watching us and/or ready to shoot us, but in that particular video? I believe I must declare Shenanigans.

One more thing I thought I'd add for the thread, since I was off checking this morning anyway... Here are the tech specs for the MQ-9 Reaper, which is just an advanced and entirely offensive variant to the original Predators:

Background
The U.S. Air Force proposed the MQ-9 Reaper system in response to the Department of Defense direction to support overseas contingency operations initiatives. It is larger and more powerful than the MQ-1 Predator and is designed to prosecute time-sensitive targets with persistence and precision, and destroy or disable those targets. The "M" is the Department of Defense designation for multi-role and "Q" means unmanned aircraft system. The "9" indicates it is the ninth in the series of remotely piloted aircraft systems.

General Characteristics
Primary Function: Remotely piloted hunter/killer weapon system
Contractor: General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc.
Power Plant: Honeywell TPE331-10GD turboprop engine
Thrust: 900 shaft horsepower maximum
Wingspan: 66 feet (20.1 meters)
Length: 36 feet (11 meters)
Height: 12.5 feet (3.8 meters)
Weight: 4,900 pounds (2,223 kilograms) empty
Maximum takeoff weight: 10,500 pounds (4,760 kilograms)
Fuel Capacity: 4,000 pounds (602 gallons)
Payload: 3,750 pounds (1,701 kilograms)
Speed: Cruise speed around 230 miles per hour (200 knots)
Range: 1,150 miles (1,000 nautical miles)
Ceiling: Up to 50,000 feet (15,240 meters)
Armament: Combination of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, GBU-12 Paveway II and GBU-38 Joint Direct Attack Munitions
Crew (remote): Two (pilot and sensor operator)
Unit Cost: $53.5 million (includes four aircraft with sensors) (fiscal 2006 dollars)
Initial operating capability: October 2007


Welcome to America. A brave new world.

How astonishing that anyone could watch this crap video and believe even for a second that it's real. Ironically, I imagine a lot of the people that think it is also believe they can see the CGI in 9/11 or space videos. Just proves that people will see what they want, regardless of how obvious the reality it is.
