Here's a scarier idea, you ever see what a mylar balloon looks like on radar?

Well one great way to distract people searching for a tiny radar dot is with a really big radar dot.

So if you were to rig up a couple of those foil balloons you can get a super markets since they are really reflective in radar and can look like an object bigger than an a380 just appeared on radar they'd make excellent passive ecm radar chaff.

Keep the authorities looking for a big scary ufo that just popped into existence and is drifting around instead of a tiny balloon or your drone while you traverse the unavoidable radar regions above 500ft or so.

Bonus points if you're upwind of the control tower so it moves towards them.

Something my uncle who used to be military taught me about which was hilarious to hear the story behind lol.

Hah. That's nifty, but that fun has potential to get a lot more heat on your back!

What's the story, if you wouldn't mind telling?

@Darvince well it was a prank that almost went horribly horribly wrong.

my uncle and a couple of his buddies were drunk and decided to mess around with the Radar using the listed method.

the entire airbase went into lockdown and Search squads were searching the entire base and surrounding area after the balloons were found.

it was like kicking a hornets nest, from their perspective, something invisible but the size of a dozen B2 bombers put together just popped up on radar out of nowhere.

this was during the cold war BTW so tensions were much higher back then.
