WALL — Officials were investigating after a drone was spotted near Monmouth Executive Airport Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
A NetJets Cessna C560 was flying at 2,000 feet when the crew reported seeing an unmanned aircraft three miles southwest of the Wall-based airport at 10:35 a.m., according to the FAA.
The plane did not take evasive action, the FAA said in a statement.
The flight had departed from New Castle Airport in Wilmington, Delaware, and was traveling to Monmouth Executive Airport when the sighting was reported.
Drones give us a bird's-eye view of Newark, Atlantic City, the Shore and many other corners of the Garden State.
New Jersey ranked high among states with reported sightings of drones, according to a report Friday.
Among other regulations, recreational drones are not allowed to fly within 5 miles of an airport without approvals.
