Very interesting post. I was surprised when I saw this, because I myself had posted seeing a similar sighting recently (Virginia, USA). My post is
called, "Floating Single Engine Airplane" it's on page 10 of the Aliens & Ufos thread
to my topic).
Another poster, scared_little_piggy (South Africa), posted a similar sighting in his post called, "Please help me with some insight onto what has
happened to me!!" (link
to his post).
I watched your video - it's crazy! That is exactly what I saw. Now, I work near Dulles International Airport in Chantilly, VA. So there are a lot of
aircraft coming and going, and they are taking off or landing, so they are at reduced speeds.
Someone responded to my post to refute my claim, but only to state that planes were capable of stalling their engines, and performing unusual
manuevers. However, in your case, you must have a commercial, passenger airline stunt pilot, because yours is a full sized commercial craft. My
sighting was a single engine plane.
The odd thing in my sighting was that I was a mile or more away from the plane I spotted, and it took me a couple of minutes to reach it. But at no
time did it change direction, nor did it proceed from its original location. And as I passed it, it appeared to just sit there over the Interstate.
This plane was pointed across the interstate, which means that if it were moving forward at even a slow rate of speed it would have crossed over the
interstate. The plane did not move. And as I passed it, it seemed to just hang t here. It was such a bizarre sight that I thought enough to post it.
And your sight struck you enough to videotape and post it. Now, as I've said, I have seen similar optical illusions as planes are just moving so
slowly that they appear to be still to a motorist passing by. And along those lines, it would be extremely difficult to dispute video of someone
standing still while a plane just hovered there.
So I say if anyone has seen anything like this, and has video of a plane just hanging there, please let us know. Wouldn't that be an interesting way
for "them" to get our attention by making our own aircraft perform impossible feats right before our eyes? When I saw that plane sitting there, I
got such an eerie feeling. It looked like it was just hanging there observing. I still wonder about that incident to this day (it was about a month
and a half ago)...
All I have to say is keep your eyes to the sky. Some very bizarre things are occurring right above our heads...
