Pretty sure I'm allowed to say it will be mounted in a Bone. Target will be unorthodox.

This post just kind of blew my mind. I used to live 10 minutes from Eglin. In 2011, my son and I were outside at dusk. We saw this weird pulsing light - just above tree-level (from our perspective). We were watching it, trying to figure out what the heck it was, for several minutes.
Then, we noticed there were about 15 F-15s (I think that’s what they were) flying in the near vicinity. That stumped us further. We discussed somewhat jokingly, somewhat semi-seriously, whether the pulsing light object could be alien in origin... as it was really unique. At the time, we weren’t oblivious to the fact that was a “crazy” idea but the combination of its uniqueness plus the fighter jets made the “impossible” seem not so much so.
Well, after a couple of minutes, one of the jets started flying up toward the light in a definite zigzag pattern. My son says, “Mom... what if that thing is a craft and not friendly?” I laughed and said, “There’s got to be... (some other explanation)...” but I didn’t get the whole sentence out because - for lack of a better way to say it - a laser beam of some kind comes from the object directed to the jet. The jet loses quite a bit of altitude rapidly but doesn’t crash. I did not see what happened next because in that instant, for a few moments, I was “convinced” some sort of invasion had started and screamed for my son to get inside and ran inside myself.
Believe me... I KNOW how ridiculous that sounds but in that moment and a period after, the event was so strange, I just wasn’t sure what else it could be. Again, I rushed my son inside, slammed the door and waited. I truly did know my original thoughts about what we saw seemed “crazy” but it just defied normal explanations in my mind. I didn’t “do anything” per se right then. I honestly expected - and just kept waiting and watching - for something to be on the news.
When it wasn’t, the next day I called the base and kept getting transferred to so many different departments I just gave up. Over that week, we came to accept / realize if must have been an AFB test of something. It sounds like this RFP is for basically the same kind of thing - and at Eglin, too. Although, it’s still a bit confusing because what we saw was 7 years ago. Still, interesting nonetheless.
