That weren't no drone, that thar was a whirlybird. I seen it, it was a little feller, not much bigger than a squirrel. I reckon it might be one of them boomers (some folk calls 'em flying squirrels, I call 'em boomers)! I reckon you was in a bad way a'drinkin' and all. Umphhh. You ourht not do that so early in the mornin'.

An obvious outsider trying to ape the Appalachian dialect, and failing to ones who know the real Appalachian Mountain talk.

You obviously have zero idea even what a boomer is.

Im sure you were pretty smug when you wrote this, and that was because you dont have a clue what your talking about enough to be embarrassed.

Give it up, city boy.

I think I saw it today. I was working out at the CPA at ETSU and saw what looked like a plane...it was white,but flying way too low. Body was super-skinny so there is no way it was manned,whatever it was. It flew over ETSU and headed towards the VA. Dont know if it was a drone or what,but it was unusual.

We saw them! It looked like 3 planes flying low at first, but I think it was two, one was just shaped really weird. We are in Jonesborough, they were coming from the direction of Aerojet & headed towards downtown Johnson City.

Could have just been a high dollar toy RC plane you people saw. Some of the students at ETSU could have just been flying one or two around. Just a thought.

I'll bet it probably was. I don't doubt the witnesses thought it was a drone, but when we see something odd up in the air, we can't help but let our imaginations go with it. One theory I'm sure it wasn't..........swamp gas!

It was just high-tech pigeons is all it is! Sending messages back and forth too top secret for the USPS to handle. Saving on postage too!
