I was looking for possiable places to relocate when I retire in approx 3-4 yrs from now. I was looking at the city of Atloona, looking at the 2 pics labled "Panorama view of Cathderal of the Blessed Sacrament" ! while clicking on pic to download I noticed in the upper left side of the pic , there apperes to be an "object' that seems to be "strange' in both apperance and unexplained! The pics were taken by Sam Loyed on 10/29/2005! Can any one else click on the pic and comment back to me as what you think it is?

It's on the first two pics on the Altoona page right here on city-data.

I wouldn't get my hopes up. To me it could be a small plane because the municipal airport at Martinsburg is over the hills towards the left of the pic. It could also be the trauma helicopter because Altoona Regional Health System with their trauma unit isn't far away either.

Is it Governor Rendell's aviary version of the "Pope-mobile?"
