    What was their ADS-B code?

    The engines were easily heard, what did they sound like? Recip? Turbine? Propeller? Electric?

    And there's film imbedded above > https://www.wowt.com/content/news/CA...566798651.html

    Ice is crawling up the inside of our windows so it must be cold in Fairbanks. No drones.

    I watched the clip earlier on my phone. Audio wasn't great, but it sound more like a light plane than what we've come to call a drone. Looked like one, too.
