A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so?
Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling.
It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials.
The aircraft doesn’t appear to be flying when it’s cloudy out, only taking to the skies on starlit nights.
Sources tell WBZ that the aircraft is not a drone, that it is manned. FAA spokesman Jim Peters would only say, “We have to be very careful this time” concerning information.
Obviously when the federal government wants to keep something quiet, they keep it very quiet.
“The FBI does not comment on aerial activity,” a statement from the bureau said.
