A new business in Griffiss will be developing drones in Oneida County with cameras affixed to them. Will they be spying on us from the air? What's your take on this ?

If they come in your airspace, shoot the drones down with your bb-gun !

Of course they'll be spying on the public.What do you think the drones are going to be used for? We are the guinea pigs that will be used to debug the machines before they are deployed nationally on a larger scale. Let's just hope they have the bugs worked out of their nav systems so there aren't too many innocent deaths from crashes in populated areas.

Soon we will have radar units mounted on our rooftops to detect these invasive drones. Or miniature heat seeking missiles to take down these information gathering machines!

You are eerily correct. It is 1984 come to roost.

If I catch any of those drones hovering in my backyard, I will shoot them down with my pellet gun.

I would be a little concerned

The pilot of an actual plane is going to do everything in his or her power to keep from crashing, because they are strapped in! Short of ejecting, if the plane decides to make a smoking crater somewhere in Utica, the pilot is done for.

With drones, this might not be the case. Although I wouldn't accuse drone pilots of being negligent or derelict in their flying, a guy sitting in a recliner somewhere in Colorado probably won't have the same pressure to keep his plane from crashing.

Also I love how the Utica-area media reports any new industry coming to CNY as being built from the ground up. Let's face it, the populace in Utica is simply not educated enough to accomodate the next Boeing or Grumman.

All that Griffiss will get is what they did with the aviation technician jobs - the airliner equivalent of your local Jiffy Lube grease monkeys!

Those drones will be delivering packages to to your home from Amazon .Com soon enough! The skies are going to be flooded with these things.

Watch when one is hiding at tree level with a radar gun checking your speed and a trooper is waiting to hand you a ticket. This is the goal and money maker that will pay off the program.We will have the first hand enjoyment of these money makers. They show you a ridiculous picture of some drone bringing you a package. I couldn't stop laughing at that. The real uses will be a tool of big brother to watch over you and make CASH but of course the Public safety always a first.

Pellet gun possession will be made a felony and useage of one on a drone will be made a federal death penalty.You have to sometimes laugh at where it is all going.
