I personally witnessed a "stealth blimp" on 13 january 1998 slowly flying over Westchester Illinios [near Chicago] at 6:10am. It was approximately
100-125' feet long, and had a most unusual light on its nose with four multi-colored, rotating police-like lights on a wheel. [How would they dock
that thing with that big light on the nose??]
It slowly flew by us at about 100' feet in altitude, and about perhaps 30 MPH. I remember thinking i could hit it with a baseball it was so close!
The exterior was a dull, metallic-grey color with longitudinal lines running down the sides. Similar to The Hindenberg. Several small ports for
windows, but unlit on the inside.
There was a swirling smoky plume ejecting out of the rear of it that was probably twice the length of the object. The ejecta color was smoky-grey and
yellowish. We couldn't smell anything unusual. There were two other witnesses that saw this object.
Being the town is located near O'Hare int'l airport, there were other planes higher in altitude that could be seen and heard as well.
It eventually flew southeast towards Lake Michigan and disappeared.
I have an airframe & powerplant certification for large jet transport and general avaiation, ground school certified, and am also a WW2 and fighter
plane buff, and general aviation enthusiast.
What we saw was unexplainable.
