Since "it" happened, I have from time to time searched the net for information regarding what I witnessed three years ago over the quiet, E.
Tennessee valley in which I live and it was this latest search that led me to this site. With all respect, it is mainly for the benefit of any other
confirmation seeking witnesses that I share the following:
Our little valley was overflown fairly often during the ramp up to the US mission in Iraq by jets as well as cargo planes but, what I heard that late
July 2007 afternoon was like nothing I'd heard before. I ran out of my studio and stood on the edge of the porch with my mouth agape watching it fly,
low and slow, directly overhead. I had no idea what it was but I marvelled at it's form; it's fuselage seemed to stretch on forever and then, those
strange wings that echoed Batman's cape. The flat black finish added to it's ominous yet graceful, presence that seemed to own earth and sky. I
watched til it nosed up slightly, tipped each wing and disappeared over the ridge. It gave me chills and left me completely awestruck. Even though I
didn't know what it was, I knew it was something spectacular and immediately began to research and identify it as the SR 71 Blackbird. Can I prove
it? No. Nor will I ever know why I received the good grace to see it that day, but I did and I will never forget it.
