Apologies for bumping this old thread, I've really only really signed up to this place (as I Googled planes with no sound and there is scant on the
subject except here) to get this off my chest...But I may stick around
Firstly a little history, my granddad was in the RAF and taught me about aircraft in all their shapes and sizes, I go to Knutsford airshow every now
and then and I have lived near a busy airport all my life (on the flight path) and even worked there. So I know the difference between a cessna & a
guppy (rip), a jet and 747.
It happened when I was around 12 (in the 1990's), myself and a friend were walking back from my house to his. On the way from my house we passed a
field (this was still in an urban area but one of the ways onto the field was just off the path/road) and both stopped abruptly. We looked to our left
and saw a flat silent craft of some kind hovering over the field. It had lights/windows in the main part of it, directly facing us. I'm sure I saw
movement in those "windows" but years later I can't be sure if they were moving lights or not. It had one red/blue/white alternating light on
After a minute or so staring at it, we both got scared and ran to his house which was roughly a 15 minute walk away. When we got to his front door we
stopped to catch our breath, we both looked up and saw a plane. It was going very, very slowly above us. Far too slow, they don't go that slow
approaching the runway nor on take off. There was no breeze as it was a hot evening in summer. It was also very low, about 50-60 feet up not on the
flight path, which is 90 degrees counter clockwise to the direction this "plane" was travelling. It couldn't have been circling as the airport is
always very busy (especially in summer) & they tend to circle high and wide to avoid collisions.
It was a dark gunmetal colour, had three blinking lights underneath and was too small to be a 747 but it was shaped like one, without engines. It was
totally silent, and freaked us both out. We both stood there watching it until it drifted over his house. What freaks me out the most is if it was the
craft over the field, it changed shape, followed us over an urban area, very brazenly, then slowed down to watch us.
About a week later I was staying at a relatives, in the middle of the night I woke up abruptly and couldn't move. I tried screaming but then passed
out. I understand that it could be & hope that it was sleep paralysis but one half of my body felt like it was burning when I woke up. And after
getting the courage to run to the light switch and turn it on I looked in the mirror, & that half of my body was slightly red. Even my legs and arms
which were covered.
As I got back into bed (with the light on) a sphere of light passed through my room, reflected off the glass on the two picture frames on the wall
(which is why I still believe I saw it-the reflection) and then went out of the window. Now I don't know what the hell it was or even if it is
related to the "airplane" I saw but I still remember it all vividly, and the fact that the two instances were pretty close to each other makes me
I'm a fairly logical person but I really can't explain this. I've never really told anyone about it, me and my friend never spoke about it, so I
finally feel I had to get this experience off my chest.
