Mystery Aircraft Frightens Quincy Residents

By Bill Shields, WBZ-TV

QUINCY (CBS) – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so?

“It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section.

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.

“I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ.

It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials.

“It’s frustrating, it really is,” says City Councillor Brian Palmucci. “I specifically asked, ‘Is it a law enforcement flight? Can we tell people that?’ He said, ‘No, we can’t tell you that.’ Then I asked that when folks call me can I at least tell them that it is something that they shouldn’t worry about, it’s something they shouldn’t be concerned with? He said, ‘I can’t tell you that.'”

The aircraft doesn’t appear to be flying when it’s cloudy out, only taking to the skies on starlit nights. (Continued…)

    It’s very common for local police to do surveillance by using a small plane, such as a Cessna 185, orbiting at lower elevations. Usually they stay just high enough to keep the engine noise down. A second or third officer will act as a spotter for the units on the ground. Of course, the police like to keep this sort of information to themselves, that’s why the FAA is silent.

    thermo scans is my best guess, night allows for cooler ground temps, cloud cover could interrupt too

    Dear police,if you find it necessary to spy on your local citizens,at least have the honor to admit it.To spy on people not suspected of a crime is slimy.But,hey,in Massachusetts,slimy is a sliding scale.

    I haven’t looked and I dont care which “party” the mayor belongs to…get Tom Koch OUT of his position!!!

    He referred to citizens as being “our[s]” – same with Council Member Palmucci being concerned about “his residents” – umm – citizens belong to no person. In fact, citizens belong to no government (at least not in the US)- the government belongs to the people and these councilors and mayors are OUR servants.

    Someone should just shoot it down. Oh wait this is MA, your not allowed to own guns there. Guess your all stuck with the Feds spy planes invading your privacy – SLAVES!

  • Thomas The Paine

    Just shoot the thing down. . .

  • David

    The FAA does not want to answer, fine. Shoot it down and ask questions later.

  • Scott

    Someone needs to get a couple of high powered spotlights (light car lots used) and when the aircraft re-appears just light it up, take pictures, enhance pictures, post to the web…..there you go, problem solved.

  • Sandy

    If the FAA can’t ID it, then shoot the damn thing down. Then we’ll know what it is.
