Mystery Object Spotted By Pilot Prompts Investigation

FAA Looking Into Monday Incident Over Denver

An unidentified object over Denver has led to an FAA
investigation. The object appeared Monday when the pilot of a
Cessna Citation CJ1 flying at 8,000ft MSL called ATC to report
"A remote-controlled aircraft, or what? Something just went by
the other way, about 20 to 30 seconds ago. It was like a large
remote-controlled aircraft."

USA Today reports that speculation so far has been that the
object was a military or law enforcement drone, a radio-
controlled aircraft, or a large bird. Drone aircraft are going
through the process of being approved by the FAA to operate in
airspace with manned aircraft. So far this approval has not yet
been granted. The technology for maintaining separation between
manned aircraft and UAVs has not been perfected yet.

A message from the FAA to the paper said "The FAA is
investigating the incident and will try to positively identify
the object the Citation pilot reported, where it came from and
who was operating it." The agency will investigate anything
operating in controlled airspace that represents a hazard to
aircraft. Agency spokesman Mike Fergus said "We'll do as much as
we can here to try to track down what time it was, probably talk
with some remote-control clubs, that kind of thing."
