UFO? Nope UAV - Over my little abode.

Seems the local PD has decided that drones would make great surveillance equipment to add to their arsenal. Problem? They forgot to notify anyone that they were testing the project. (Ya know like the FAA?) There was no NOTAM filed AND one of them came dangerously close to a life flight helicopter. One of the local news choppers spotted the drone in flight and started asking questions. Now I'm NOT a fan of reporters but I DO trust most pilots and when they say something is amiss, I tend to believe them.Well, sure enough, I spotted one flying over my house this morning. Apparently PD has now been educated on how to conduct "secret" flight tests. Despite the legality, it still makes me seriously reconsider sunbathing in the backyard this summer.
