Some years ago (not too long ago...) while staying with friends in Tucson for a short while, I stepped outside into the cooler night air to cool off
a bit. Coming from New Zealand, it was interesting to watch the night sky and listen to the activity of the city around me. I was even spotlighted
by a circling police helicopter, and speculated on what the outcome would be if I made a mad dash for it......LOL......and what the response of the
chopper pilot would be.
But since I had no reason for going anywhere, I stared back up into the glare of the spotlight, and watched him fly away after losing intest !!
However, while staring into the night sky over Tucson.....I could make out the clear, shallow delta wing shape of a huge slow flying aircraft,
lights all along each leading edge. I strained my ears to separate out the hushed jets of the aircraft from the distant noises of the night in the
city........and couldn't hear a thing. At the time, I knew I had exceptional hearing in certain frequency ranges (industrial auditory testing
confirmed this), but there was no sound at all to be heard. It flew deliberately low, and slow, and circled the city 3 or 3 times before
dissapearing (I'm guessing....) at the nearest AFB. If it was high in the sky......then it must have been huge. the shape was discernible by the
rows of evenly spaced lights along each wing. If it was low.....it was still large, and had to have been using unconventional propulsion. But, I
guess this is 'old school' to the ATS community. But the evening is one I won't forget, having witnessed it first hand.
