"Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. The FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling.
It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials." (YouTube.com)

The tail number, N906TM, which can be seen in one photo, is registered to a company called RKT Productions. The only information that could be found on the company is a post office box in Bristow, Va.

A spokesman for the nearest airport, Manassas Regional Airport, had never heard of the company and said the plane did not fly out of that airport.

Residents have not seen the tail number on the second plane.
