I called, nice lady answered and told me that in fact yes it ws a military jet, and they had all been getting a good laugh around the office over all the attention it got, and to think people would actually think it was a u.fo, lol thats what she said not me. She also added, well it couldn't be a ufo, because it wasn't flying, and it was identified by the entire Dallas police dept.
"mystery solved, took me 17 mins." (Unquote)
Well, you just showed us how much of a skeptic you are--to a fault!
I was thinking that this thread would be a good one for the gov'ment shills to show up and be identified by supplying accurate but misleading data. Thank you.

If the author of the article had any respect for the agreement he made with the informant. He would not have included this sentance:
"The officer, who was an 8 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, "
From the article:
"The only condition that he had was that he did not want to reveal his name, or any other information that would allow him to be identified by anyone of his superiors or by any of the agencies "
Well either this author is lying, or he is a complete bastard.

As a member of the army that's worked with military aircraft for the last 9 years, I can tell you that the Army and Air Force do not show their aircraft in public. They don't haul helicopters, or military aircraft down the highway. They put it in a bigger military plane or helicopter and fly it to its destination with a Chinook (CH-47), or a big air force plane like a C-140, etc... If the aircraft is functional, they usually just fly it to its location.
A lot of what you would see on a military aircraft is classified material, not to mention seeing it at all is something the military doesn't want done because it can give any enemy possible intel on it.
Whatever that thing was being transported, they were in a hurry, and it was a last minute operation.

I just thought of something. Wouldn't the following statement make it fairly easy to narrow down the identity of the officer? Does anyone know if any officers were prosecuted (for any reason) or dismissed from the Dallas Police Department since this story broke? Assuming that this is true and because he didn't write back, I hope that he and his family are okay.
The officer, who was an 8 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, was assigned to normal street patrol in a particular section of the city (again information has been withheld per his request).
