Last Tuesday night, I was leaving a Kansas City tavern where I was playing pool in a pool league.
Myself and a friend were in the alley behind the Quaff Buffet, near 10th and Broadway downtown. It was about 10:00 p.m., Central Standard time. I happened to be looking up, when I noticed what I first thought was a flock of geese flying over us in a V formation. 9 altogether, one leading and 4 trailing each side. But then you could see the dark triangular outline.
It was a black triangle. I have seen a huge one in the past near McConnell AFB in Wichita, KS a few years back. This one was much smaller, or else a lot farther away. The lights were configured differently too.
It was about ready to drift out of sight over a building, when I mentioned it to my friend:
Look, thereís a UFO.
He glanced up just as they were drifting where a building blocked the view. Then he looked at me and smiled.
Did you see it? I asked.
No, man, Youíre just kidding me, right?.
Címon, I said, grabbing his arm as I ran towards the middle of the alley. He saw I was serious and we ran about 20 steps and looked up. Sure enough, there it was. it was totally silent and was drifting rather than flying.
It had quite a yaw going, and was not going straight ahead but drifting in about a 45° tangent from its front.
We could see it very clearly for about another full minute.
Thatís a stealth, said my friend.
Look at how slow itís moving, I said. Itís moving so slowly, itís almost hovering. And you canít hear a thing. Itís a black triangle.
As others have already pointed out, the stealths do not have these flight characteristics. I have seen them a number of times, and they did not have these lights lit up underneath them either.
There have been no other reports. Yet it flew right over the downtown area. I cannot validate the altitude, but the appearance was that it was fairly small and gliding at around 700' to 1000' at most. Why would they purposely fly a secret aircraft over downtown Kansas City where anyone looking up can see it? And all light up? And how do they silently drift obliquely like they do?
I canít believe how frequent these sightings are becoming.
