I saw one back in the winter of 1997.
It was somewhere between 05:00 and 05:30, my usual early morning walk with the hound and a cold and very frosty morning. There wa san almost full
moon behind me to the East and a crystal clear dark sky.
The early morning long haul flights were beginning to appear in the Bovingdon circuit, bound for London Heathrow airport. There were two "Heavies"
(747's) joining the circuit, one in front in a gentle and long right bank with another following along perhaps 2 or 3 miles behind and a slightly
All of a sudden as I watched them a black triangular craft traveling at high speed and the same altitude as the first 747 appeared from the North.
The craft passed behind the rear 747 then made an almost 90 degree left turn in a steeply banked attitude, levelled out then made an equally sharp
right bank in front of the leading 747 and headed off South. The speed of this craft and the way it was able to bank and turn with seemingly no loss
in speed was amazing. It stood out so much as it was a lot darker than the night sky around it. Although there was a full moon it remained a flat /
matte black and non-reflective, made no sound and displayed no lights. The whole event from first sighting from the North to disappearance to the
South took perhaps 4 - seconds.
