Mystery Drones Kept Buzzing U.S. Destroyers During Exercises Off California
New details have emerged of how mysterious drones harassed U.S. warships off California on multiple occasions in 2019. The Navy has yet to determine where the drones came from, who was operating them, or why they buzzed around a group of U.S. destroyers.

The incidents were first reported by documentary filmmaker Dave Beaty, with new details obtained by news website The Drive using Freedom of Information Act requests to get the ships' logs of the encounters.

The vessels involved were the destroyers USS Kidd, USS Rafael Peralta and USS John Finn. They were engaged in a training exercise in a military area about a hundred miles off Los Angeles in low visibility. This location tells us something immediately: these were not hobbyist quadcopters that happened to see some cool ships and flew over for a look, but something far more deliberate.

At 10 pm on July 14th, lookouts on the USS Kidd spotted two drones, which they describe in the log as 'Unmanned Aerial Vehicles' or UAVs without providing details. Ten minutes later USS Rafael Peralta and USS John Finn made their own sightings. During this period, the ships were carrying out a form of radio silence with minimal communication, a common practice during exercises to make the ships difficult for electronic eavesdroppers to spot.


The ships logs note that the drones followed the Kidd, and at one point matched its speed and bearing, with one drone hovering above the helicopter pad. The encounter lasted some ninety minutes, much longer than the endurance of small drones which typically have a flights endurance of half an hour.
