great reply Bhadhidar.
And that's absolutely true about close encounters of the third kind. I used to watch that movie alot when I was younger.
I would, generally, think that most people would have an idea of what a fighter jet looks like from the movies alone. But who knows. Perhaps these Texans saw other smaller UFO's flying in the vicinity of the mile long craft and thought perhaps they were fighter jets trying to follow it. It's one possibility.

I would be interested in seeing any report MUFON comes out with regarding this sighting and I'm sure they will investigate it
(Particularly the detailed correlations between the witness testimony of the UFO and the smaller craft that succeeded it).

The interesting thing here is that
1 - If the witness testimony points to UFO's and not military fighters, then there is that much more evidence to support the sighting. especially since the large craft and the smaller ones were witnessed by multiple people..
2 - If the witness testimony points to jet fighters, that means that the military really does investigate UFO's (counter to their public statements). as well as the fact that these were in-fact military aircraft (also counter to the military's public statements) because in the news story, none of the service branches of the military said they had planes flying that day.

There is alot more data that we are not hearing about also. Did any of the nearby ground control tracking stations pick these objects up on radar? If so, were they reported? If these were military aircraft, it means that either they were seen on radar first or they were seen in flight by other aircraft and didn't have a radar signature. Either way, someone in the military or otherwise would have had to notify somone in order for the military to dispatch fighter aircraft to invetsigate the unknown objects. Especially if they were seen right after the large object was, when the UFO was apparently traveling over twice - 3times most normal fighter aircraft's max speed.

I'm pretty astounded that all these people saw this object but noone photographed or videotaped the event? It's possible it was just traveling too fast and noone had time to react as they sat and watched in amazement.

IMO, This also couldn't have been an experimental military aircraft for 2 simple reasons.
1 - The size of this object was too large to have been powered by any known propulsion system out there. The capabilities of this vessel were obviously pretty remarkable.
2 - Why would the military experiment with such a large aircraft, at such a low altitude, in the vicinity of towns and hundreds, if not, thousands of people that might have seen it? Doesn't really make sense.

So I'm reading today that the Air Force has solved the UFO sightings in
Texas. Seems the Reserves were conducting nighttime training
manuvers on the 10th. Hmmmmmmmmmmm . . . . .

That doesn't make sense. They said in the national news story that no military aircraft were flying on the day in question. Maybe now that they know people saw them flying, they decided to use training flights as an excuse for their activities?

It also doesn't explain what was seen. Half mile wide/mile long fying objects do not fly without a substantial propulsion system. This object made no sound. I'd like to see where they could even land such an object, not to mention house the aircraft since it would be longer than alot of runways..

Can you give a link to this announcement? I haven't heard about this.. The day everyone believes everything the military sais is a pretty sad day. You cannot explain unconventional sightings of unconventional flying objects with unconventional capabilities by using a conventional explanation that would be rather obvious to anyone seeing it. These people in Texas saw much more than just ordinary fighter aircraft (If that's what the "chase" objects were)..

I had just received a survey from ATS about UFOs and ETs and came to look at this link to see what I thought. I do believe in ET's and UFO's however I wanted to look at this link and evidence before giving my oppinion and it says 404 error... hmmmmmm removed content possibly ? Anytime I go to look at a news story of a sighting and the information is removed I think of it less as an ET and more so of some sort of Top secret technology that we ( the human race ) are experimenting with.

Thanks for the links, I'm going with 'maybe terrestrial'.

Wish there was a 'no opinion' option!

lol I came here through the survey too...first I ever heard of this and im still not convinced, although many people seen it, its hard to believe this thing was actually a mile wide but then again you have the military saying in the first week that they didnt have anything in the air for them to retract that statement later, we all know what that might mean....
