The FBI is investigating a mysterious drone spotted Monday by a commercial pilot near the John F. Kennedy International Airport, the Christian Science Monitor reports.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the pilot “saw a small, unmanned or remote-controlled aircraft while on final approach to Runway 31 Right at John F. Kennedy International Airport at about 1:15 pm,” according to an agency statement to Christian Science Monitor.

“The pilot did not take evasive action. The flight landed safely,” the FAA said.

The drone raises questions as more remote-controlled surveillance aircraft are being tested at airports.
