Please do add any other possible sighting s and events, and i have written my sighting here for people to make up there minds on.
I was invited to play 5 aside football at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordhsire UK in winter 1998 with a team of RauxAF Regiment airmen with whom i was good
friends with (I was a civilian).
It was late at night around 10 pm when we had finished, and were stood about talking. It was then all lights on the base including the runway lights
switched off leaving us in total darkness.
However the moon was bright and the sky clear when a deep roaring sound of a very close jet craft passed and a smooth pebble shaped craft lifted into
the night sky. it had no rudders or tails, no wings, it was smoothed in every sense.
It rose quickly into the night banking eastwards and quickly vanished into the sky.
The lights went back on and my friend just smiled and shrugged, saying that it always happend when the Americans rolled it out of their hanger.
I asked him what he meant and he said that there was at the back of the base a hanger that was off limits to the UK forces.
I have never forgotten this and was reminded of it when i found that lockheed picture. However as it had no cockpit I assumed it was different.
Now I have seen the above image I can say for 100% certainty it was what i saw that night.
Note: Carterton and Brize Norton throw up alot of light into the sky, and coupled with the bright moon it was easy to see the outline of this craft as
it rose up from the runway.
