Flying Stingrays

We've heard about ground-based Stingray devices that collect cell phone information by pretending to be a cell tower. Police have been using those devices, and hiding their use from the general public and even from judges in specific criminal cases. Now, though, the program is being stepped up: DoJ is refusing to confirm or deny (which means confirmed, of course) that there is a program to mount Stingray devices on light aircraft in flight over major metropolitan areas.
