Hello John:

Thanks for providing a clickable link.

Interesting indeed. While it may well have some sort of
conventional explanation, I'm at a loss to provide one.

The news article describes a flying coffin. The separate witness
cited by Roundup thought he was looking at a silent helicopter.
Yet, the surveillance camera image looks like something else

What I see, is a silvery long slender cylinder, with maybe a
hint of an exhaust or smoke trail. More surprising is the long
white rectangle directly above it, almost like a sail, but
unlike any sail I have ever seen on air or marine craft!

Am I looking at this all wrong? Can others describe what they
see? I wouldn't expect to see an object like that at a funeral
nor a heliport. Too bad it didn't land where anyone could get a
better look.
