I noticed some people were wanting to send this video to be looked at. Anyone know a good place to send it? I am the uploader and editor of UFOs Filmed in Dallas From a Plane - Analyzed and Enhanced... and would love to have a professional video analyst check the video out. Someone who could if not identify the objects, at least be able to tell us approximately how fast they are going. I did the best I could with my Pinnacle Studio HD to try and make the video clearer, but would really like to see if it could be cleaned up even better and enhanced more.

Wouldn't think so, it's strange to say the least if that's what they are...
One thing that does go with the Jet theory though, is there not a big military base on that area?
But then on the other hand do they not have big no fly zones that they do their flying in?

I'm not buying this "it's birds" arguement. If the object was moving from left to right on the screen or straight towards the camera at lower altitude, I would've said: "OK, possible". The fact is that the object moves from the right edge of the screen to the left in under half a second. Even if really close by (compared to the buildings in the background), wouldn't this still imply the object is going alot faster than the airplane?
I'm not a die-hard UFO believer and I won't claim this is a UFO, but untill I see a video reproducing this "increased-velocity-illusion" under similar circumstances, I won't buy this bird bs.
So, you have never seen a bird fly in and out of a cameras view in half a second?
Go look at bird videos it happens all the time.
It's all about perspective.
Post videos instead of telling me to blindly accept it's birds because my current knowledge of perspective and birds doesn't allow me to do so. I'm not calling you out or anything, but if you're so determined to prove it's a bird, stop saying it's a bird and show similar videos or experiments explaining this phenomenom.
As far as I'm concerned, it looks nothing like a bird and it doesn't move like a bird (or atleast like birds I've personally seen in the sky). I'm not going to claim what it is, but I am going to claim it's not a bird untill proven otherwise.
EDIT: after having looked at the videos posted above, I still disagree that it's a bird.
For starters: the first video about birds viewed from a recreational airplane looks NOTHING like the OP video. The birds are clearly visible and don't move nearly as fast (not even close) as the object in the OP video. It only proved that at slow velocity birds are visible, something which I obviously agree with.
The second video about the parallex only proves that objects move visually faster when there's a background move slower. (Or not at all, a set background so to speak) This video does not show any perspective views from inside the car, nor does it show anything regarding the birds having a different trajectory (in 3 dimensional space).
The birds move from left to right in the video and only "drop" about 30-50 pixels orso meaning they're moving not that far off a parallel trajectory. I can see how the parallex effect could make birds move visually faster than normal, but defintely not visually faster than the airplane itself.
I could be wrong, so if u can find a video showing my bolded claim false, I'll kindly admit wrong and retreat from this thread peacefully.edit on 25-3-2012 by Rendier because: (no reason given)
