    ...I live in SW Philly only a few miles from the airport. But I'm not in the flight path of the usual air traffic. I've done lots of research on drones, seen a lot of youtube videos and the sound is unmistakable. Being a direct descendant of German Jews, I've also studied Hitler's Reich for over 35 years, reading everything I could get my hands on since I was 6 years old. The sound was something like the unmanned buzz bombs sent over London in the final days of the war. But make no mistake about it, the sound woke me up in time to put a set of eyes on it as it passed by my window. It was definitely a drone. Whether armed or unarmed, I do not know.

      was a toddler when those V1s or V2s were being sent over London.  He has told me stories. They are so distinct that his mother had him trained at 2 yrs old to know the sound of it and to come warn her.  So I know exactly what you mean, can understand how you feel.
