    "a black object appeared on the right side of the plane," an Embraer 195, at an altitude of 2,500 feet (760 meters) and that the crew "supposed that this object could be a drone."

    Ouch. That is pretty dumb. Be interesting to see what type of 'drone' it was.

    Ya, so he's at 2500 feet and keeping up with the aircraft? I don't think the P3 goes 300 mph right? haha

    No, you're right. It doesn't. Hence the possibility of a collision I imagine. It was at the same height which is the issue.
