My sons and I were just out flying a kite in the Texas wind. JUST NOW we saw a tiny speck, white, but with long wings and a short fuselage. We had
been out for 30 min or so, and I only noticed it when the kite drew my line of sight near it.
The wind here is dying down at sunset. But still gusting to 30 mph or so, and probably twice that and steady aloft.
If the fuselage was 6 - 8 ft long, then the thing must have been about 2000 ft away. It was due south of us, and about 40 degrees above the horizon.
There was a helicopter that flew directly over us twice. A civilian model, not a cobra or apache or anything. I would have taken for the local air
rescue service, but the logo was missing and it flew over us twice, without landing to pick up an injury. No sirens in the area on the ground, so no
Anyway, the spec hovered perfectly still with respect to altitude and location in the sky, but pitching slightly slightly because it was caught in the
light from the sun. If we hadn't been in the shade I am sure it would have been impossible to see it. It was stealthy in that every time I looked
down to talk with the boys, I had to scan the sky to find it again. I got out my cellphone and called a friend to describe it; i looked up and it was
gone. It happened ~7:30-7:35 pm local time.
It must have been very light, since it could hover, and yet was obviously a plane. the front of the fuselage got bigger toward the nose, like it had
a bulb at the front of the fuselage. kids called it a Q-tip with wings. It was totally unobtrusive. The older one said he thought it was hiding
from us, and the chopper was trying to distract us.
Just thought you'd like to know.
