# Ist ja eh mal wieder bereits auf mehreren Seiten aufgepoppt, aber es schadet nie, diese Dinge auch wirklich zu lesen und sich klar zu machen, wie der heutige Alltag so ausschaut: Trained A Computer To Search For Hidden Spy Planes. This Is What We Found.

"The FAA registration documents for Global Geo Mapping included a contact phone number that’s actually a spoof: It’s owned by Universal Studios and used in movies."

"We were initially baffled by some of the aircraft the algorithm flagged: They included one plane that identified itself as a powered parachute, and another as a small drone owned by a photographer. The location of their circling paths, and some digging into the history of the aircraft registrations, solved the mystery. They were U-28A spy planes operated by US Air Force Special Operations Command from its base at Hurlburt Field in the Florida Panhandle."

Klassiker eben. \o/
