Commercial airliner sized diamond shaped craft hovering and flying upwind in high wind storm and in airport flight path

Approximately 10 miles NW of Boise BOI airport/Gowen Air field adjacent to a Boeing 737-300 class airliner on final approach, this craft was spotted by a colleague and I. It was a stormy day with dark low clouds and high winds. The craft appeared diamond shaped and hovered a mile or so from the airliner that was on final approach. After the airliner passed, the craft flew straight up towards the low storm clouds, rolled onto its side, and the shot into the clouds headed into the wind. after which we lost sight of it. I caught 24 seconds of video of the craft that I am uploading with this report. At first we thought it was a drone, but it was in the flight path of the airport, was above the jet liner and appeared nearly the same size as the jet. Way too big to be a drone. And it hovered, flew vertically, and shot into the clouds head into the wind at high speed. Definitely NOT a drone.
