Surveillance drone spotted over Chicago suburb


Amateur video posted on YouTube over the weekend seems to suggest that unmanned surveillance drones might be flying over Chicago’s skies for the NATO summit this weekend. The video, filmed in north suburban Elgin, shows what looks like a drone similar to the MQ-1 Predator, which is used in combat operations across the globe, but also has been used for reconnaissance. Homeland Security uses similar drones in border patrol operations.<
