I couldn't find this with a search so if it is posted elsewhere please delete.

I'm hoping someone can produce the video mentioned in the article.

Four passes over their house with military escort and 29 Palms is just a short distance away. I'm leaning to this being on of ours.

US: Military jets chase UFO over Arizona town

Lake Havasu - A boomerang or triangular-shaped craft 300 feet in the air made four passes over this town beginning at 7 p.m. March 18, while "fighter jets" followed in formation, according to a witness report filed with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database.

Please post a link to the video if you find it.

Do you also think this is one of ours?

Thirty minutes later, the object made a fourth and final pass, the witness had obtained a video camera and shot footage.

I lived in Havasu back in the 80's, and we saw a lot of unusual things in the sky and around town. Strange place.

When I did a search for this sighting there was another last year in the same area. Seems to be a lot of activity.

Here's the source text of the report via MUFON's CMS:

2009-03-19 2009-03-18 Boomerang or triangle craft, 300+ feet across spotted multiple times at apprx. 10,000+ ft. by multiple witnesses Wednesday night over Lake Havasu City/Needles, CA (video taken!). AZ, US

Long Description of Sighting Report
1st sighing - Wednesday night, March 18th apprx 7pm 2009 my family and I were enjoying a bbq/fish fry in my father-in-law's backyard. I noticed the fighter jet engine noise and looked to the sky. The first thing I noticed was 4 fighters with standard strobes flying in combat formation (Lead plane forward, wingman to the right and slightly behind) There were two sets of two fighters trailing an enormous craft clustered of dozens of amber lights/orbs. They were all traveling North to South at a consisant pace at first sight, then changed direction at about 280 degrees South to head North-West. Traveling North-West, the craft and jets flew directly over our heads. 10 people were in the group, 7 people witnessed the event including myself. As the craft came dead straight above our heads, we could see clearly that it was a huge vehicle. At that time, it appeared to have a main body of amber lights and a "hull" and one wing outstretched to about 300+feet. What was odd, was that we could all make out the triagle/boomerage shape because of the stars being blocked out as it passed them and by the small, very faint reddish glow or light at the tip of the "wing". The fighters jets kept pace and followed, maintaining the same distance througout. 2nd sighting - 30 minutes after the first sighting, the craft flew over again, this time the fighters were scrabbled and not in any noticable formation. The object itself was silent. that time, only my wife and I witnessed it while we were leaving to drive home. This was so impressive and the second pass inspired me to get home and get the video camera. When we arrived at our house a few minutes later, I could see it circling back around and coming our direction. I grabbed my binolulars and my wife and i faced South to watch it come back overhead. 3rd sighting - This time, with my binos, I saw the object perfectly. As I write this, my adrenalin surges a little and I get chills. at 10,000+ feet, this dark craft barely fit into view through the eye peices. I have 30 power binoculars to give some perspective. It definately blocked out the background stars and was boomerang shaped. Its amber lights at the center of the body were the strangest part. I could not tell if they were on the outide of the craft or if that part of the craft was transparent. They seemed to be clustered in an oval shape but some were slightly larger than others indicating that I could see the closest ones and the furthest ones simultaneously. I could confirm that the wing tips had very miniscule lights on each end as well. This thrid pass, the fighters were trailing behind again. I got a sense of scale by that fact and was in awe. I handed the binos to my wife and she got a great look at it too. She has never seen anything like that and was speachless. The craft and fighters left our sight again and I took the time to run in the house and dig out the video camera. We sat outside for about 30 minutes and I saw the craft circling for a fourth pass. 4th sighting - I was able to get it on film! I am not sure about the quality, I have not had time to review it on a large TV yet but will this afternoon. Of course lights in a dark sky could be anything but I am truly hoping the camera is sharp enough to show the darkened area of the craft when compared to the stars. that was one of the most impressive things I have ever witnessed!

Have been interested in ufos/UAPs for many years and have lurked in the ATS forum for some months but this my first post here. So I'd first like to thank the excellent contributors to this forum for their wisdom.

Second, what has struck me is that while cases of little merit often attract much attention, really important multiple witness plus video sightings like this Lake Havasu one, including the remarkable footage by the main witness, Trevor Lowder, shown on Ufo Hunters First Response, are all but ignored. Lowder's footage invites comparison with the early 1980s Hudson Valley boomerangs, the 1989-93 Belgian triangles and with the 2007 Blackburn/Anderson Bakersfield footage. All these have been well-discussed on ATS. Like the Lake Havasu incident, many of these UAPs were linked with lakes or bodies of fresh water, even the Bakersfield UAP followed a canal just to the east of the highway, I found from Google Earth.

It's here in this episode of UFO Hunters, I couldn't find just the isolated video. This is the night after the same object was apparently seen in Long Beach, CA which was also followed by jets.

The Corona,CA video shown appears to be a radio-controlled 'copter or something...

Interesting case. I live in AZ myself (though I didn't move here until AFTER the Phoenix Lights incident), and so far I have yet to see anything strange (but I keep looking).

I've often thought that in cases of ufo's being pursued (or escorted?) by military planes, it would be the planes that would ironically bring more attention to the situation. One or more fighter jets flying low over residential areas tends to get people out of their houses and scanning the skies.

If the military was interested in secrecy, you'd think they'd forget about these high-speed, low altitude pursuits altogether.

I think that one was clipped after noting lightning from the ufo.

Some have to be real craft.
The best cases get recreated with models from eyewitnesses although
I just ran across a complaint by Vicki Landrum in her case as
Unsolved Mysteries messing up her description with spinning and
revolving lights that didn't happen.
The mass medium has censors and are now on youtube perhaps,
at least it looks like a flood of anti Tesla agents posting videos of no

I'd love to see one of these craft being followed by 21st century US mililtary jets all of a sudden turn around and blow the crap out of them. It might humble the US military and human beings for once!

Don't think so.
The operation is above the military.
Any planes would be escorting the ufo.

ED: Bill Lyne had to let the local Sheriff check out his
rifle as a reported shot was taken at a ufo.
All you need is an agent waiting for your rifle to fire
and then report a ufo shooting incident.
Your word against the invisible agents of the MIB.

Thanks for posting the Youtube link, Toxicsurf. Together with the Bakersfield video and the Rev. Mark Olson's daylight triangle footage, also shown in Ufo Hunters, Trevor Lowder's footage seemed to me one of the most interesting recent UAP video captures. particularly as it's accompanied by an equally impressive eyewitness report. Lowder's testimony, quoted in the post above by jackphotohoppy, is detailed and convincing and on Ufo Hunters he comes across as a highly intelligent and sincere witness.
The amber orbs seem characteristic of this type of sighting, described both in the Hudson Valley and Belgian sightings. There are several observations of such orbs detaching themselves from the main UAP, operating independently and even responding to human light signals. Astrophysicist Massimo Teodorani, who has studied such phenomena at Hessdalen, has suggested that such plasma orbs could be programmed by advanced ET to act as probes with sensory and computational abilities. Teodorani's papers are downloadable from his website or the Journal for Scientific Exploration website.
Considering the amber orbs and the right angle turns associated with the UAP, as a newcomer to ATS I'd doubt that Trevor Lowder's Lake Havasu UAP could be a terrestrial craft.
I wonder what the ATS experts think.

Clearly, if the jets "followed in formation" this sounds as if they already knew what they were following but it depends on what type of formation the report is referring to. A "formation" of anything is a pretty wide varience of a description used to highlight a group of anything.

I'd LOVE to see the video mentioned as well!!

With that aside though, the southwest is becoming (in my opinion) somewhat of a mecca for UFOs lately.

This sounds more like US jets were escorting the craft than chasing. Perhaps its some political alien who wanted a view of Lake Havasu. You know Lake Havasu's saying: "Have a Brew, Have a Screw, Havasu."

All kidding aside. This is big news. I wish more coverage could be done on this subject besides UFO Hunters. It'd be nice if a PI was hired to gather facts.
