There’s something flying above my house. It’s been flying a pattern covering the area between White Rock and the US border a mile or so south for almost an hour. What drew my attention was the engine/prop sound: more like a buzz saw than a engine on a small aircraft. I went out on the balcony to find if I could spot it. It flew overhead with full navigation lights and I, from these lights, guessed the wingspan at about 15-20 feet. It was at about 1800 feet and traveling at about 40-50 knots – well below the stall speed of even a small Cessna.

Last I saw it did a slow bank and flew directly south back into US territory.

Drone?
