The mystery surrounding swarms of drones seen over Colorado over the past few weeks may finally have been solved – with the United States Air Force (USAF) possibly behind them.

At least 17 drones have been seen looming above north-east Colorado and south-west sparking panic among residents.

Even yesterday, footage emerged on YouTube of one of the drones appearing above a drilling rig in Colorado.

The clip – taken at night time like many of the other sightings – showed the small craft slowly flying overhead.

Local law enforcement have been unable to identify the drones and even the Federal Aviation Administration is at a loss to explain them.

But a new report by The Gazette has suggested the drones could be part of a secretive counter-drone USAF programme.

The report claims the Air Force Global Strike Command has already confirmed such exercises are carried out of Frances E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

They also note that underground Minuteman silos are spread across all the regions that the drones have been spotted in.

Lisa Meserve, who handles federal sales for her company Dedrone which works with the Air Force, admitted the military branch is fond of testing F.E. Warren’s drone-detecting capabilities.

While not being able to say conclusively what the recent craft over Colorado were, she said: “They (the USAF) fly drones against what they have all the time.”

The Air Force has remained quiet on whether the craft belong to them, neither confirming or denying it.

But a recent news release appears to back up suggestions of a counter-drone programme behind it.

They said commercial drones “provide a realistic training environment”, implying the USAF uses such drones to test their capabilities.

To add more evidence to the Air Force explanation, maps of where the drones have been spotted show forbidden airspaces nearby which, The Gazette suggests, could be the nuclear silos.

One picture from Sedgwick, Colorado, for example shows an area nearby where drones “require FAA Authorization” to fly.

Residents throughout the state have previously said they are “nervous” about the unexplained swarms.

“These drones have made residents in our community very nervous and anxious,” the Yuma county sheriff, Todd Combs, said in a Facebook post.

“People do not like the unknown as it upsets the balance of our lives.”
