The Federal Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday it is investigating an unidentified black drone an Alitalia pilot said he encountered while approaching John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The Flight #608 pilot said he saw the 3-foot-wide drone, with four propellers, at about 1,750 feet Monday, three miles before touching down.

Whether it was a hobbyist breaking the Federal Aviation Administration's 400-foot-altitude rule or a real spy vessel from the Evil Empire is unknown. Either way, there's a UFO out there and it came within 200 feet of the plane, the FBI said.
