Posted 2002-10-23 by Tony Walsh
Fox23 News has captured video of what it claims is an "object flying over Albany International Airport."

The stills depict a cigar-shaped object with four symmetrical protrusions.

According to this article, the FBI is looking at the tapes (umm, whatever happened to "trust no one?") The article contends that the flying object resembles a "rod," an unexplained, but well documented phenomena.
