It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials. “It’s frustrating, it really is,” says City Councillor Brian Palmucci about his conversation with the FAA. “I specifically asked, ‘Is it a law enforcement flight? Can we tell people that?’
Sources tell WBZ that the aircraft is not a drone, that it is manned, and FAA spokesman Jim Peters said, “we have to be very careful this time” concerning information.
