1988 Flying Rectangle
|Before I turned around I noticed we were about a 1/4 mile from it and about 500 feet above it in altitude. It made no sound , no exhaust , no markings , no change in flight. It was an a absorvent type of black. Dull , no reflection at all, which got my attention.|
I was flying slightly faster than it was , as I gradualy was catching up with it.
When I turned around the last thing I say was it was over Normandy lake still heading North. I saw a referense close to there were the creek going by the Lake has-or had a horseshoe bend in the creek.
The flight back to the airport was quit except for the Instructor or I asking each other in a puzzling tone, What was that.
After we landed we were securing the plane and again we keep asking the same question . When he was filling in my student pilot log book we talked about it again .
It has been over 25 years since it happened. What was it ? I had no ideal. I still dont. I have told the story over and over for the last 25 years , and yes I still wonder if I would have had 10 more minutes flying to observe it because all things being equal I would have been flying next to it.
It was as big or bigger than a tractor trailier rig , and flying in a horizonal position. It stayed the same path the whole time. It had no wings , rudder , lights , cockpit , engine exhaust from my view point. The sun was bright and there was no clouds in the sky But there was no reflection of any kind at any time.
If I had just flown for another 10 minutes.
One would `think' that something that large, low, and long flying - would certainly have generated other observations. Additionally, isn't it curious that obviously this HASN'T happened since the `portable video' era has begun?
Oh, I updated my `science' blog - stuff like the Re-Discovery Of The Corpse Eating ..... hit the link to find out. 3-4 other cool links to check out too.
