FRANKLIN COUNTY NORTH CAROLINA VANISHING AIRCRAFT
Various Dates and time.
Over the last 6 years I have noticed what seem to be "vanishing" aircraft. The first two on Long Island 1999 and 2000. I noticed the aircraft while I was driving, saw it was a plane, looked back down at the road, caught a flash out of the corner of my eye where it was, looked back up and the craft was gone. As there wasn't much detail to what I saw, I figured it could be anything. I mean, I was driving and looking at the sky as usual, and these bits and pieces that I did see could have been anything - but the plane, both times, was gone. The second time it happened I pulled over and searched the sky - it wasn't there. I didn't know what to think, so I dropped it.
In 2003 I was sitting on my front steps one summers day and I heard a jet going overhead. I looked up - yep, a jet. As I was not expecting what happened next, I again didn't pay much attention to it. I looked down for maybe three seconds, looked back up again - no plane. I heard it - but it wasn't there. I got up and searched the cloudless sky - I could hear it, I could hear the jet engine, but not see it.
Summer of 2004 I would go out on what I call "the patio" in the back of the Middle School in Franklin County NC that I sometimes sub at. I have learned to "watch" the sky more closely. In the summer of 2004 I saw a tube craft. I watched as it slowly made its way across the sky. It had no wings and was not a chopper. I looked down two seconds and looked up again - yep, gone. Searched the sky's - nothing. It was then I noticed the same craft (?) following the same flight path at the same speed again. It was like a rewind. I got one of the kitchen workers to look too. I asked: What do you see? She said - What is that - a tube? I asked if she saw wings on it and she said no, it just looked like a tube.
She went back inside and of course - looked up and it was gone again. I sat down thinking about this, looked up - yep, rewind - same craft following the same flight path for a third time. It was like it was playing games with me. This time I watched it slowly drift out of sight. That was the last "flyby" until yesterday.
On March 18, I had just arrived out on "the patio" and looked up. I spotted another craft. In the time it took to see it - register in my head that I saw it - follow up on it looking for "wings" or some identifying marks - It vanished. Now this time it did not just vanish from the sky. It vanished from front to back. In other words, it was like it flew into something - like a cloud. There just weren't any clouds. It just vanished from front to back like it was flying into something.
The first three above were planes - the last mentioned here were wingless craft. I am not as interested in the UFOs as I am in the planes as I have had "experiences" going on in my life for 50 years. Has anyone defined this "vanishing plane" enigma yet?
Thank you to the witness for their report.
