Re: It's time...
You're assuming that every one of those unconfirmed sightings was both genuinely an object*, and was a drone**.
* And not a reflection, refraction, cloud, star, planet, or some other confusing visual phenomena that used to be reported as a "UFO".
** And not a balloon, carrier bag etc
If a pilot sees a weird thing these days, is it more likely that they'll report it as a "drone sighting" or a UFO?
