So first real post on here, had to post about this and see if anyone has seen anything like it.
So I live in a suburb north of dallas, and on Tuesday this flew extremely low over my house
Now there are a gazillion fight paths over my neighborhood. Planes flying in and out of dfw, love, Addison, all the small city/regional air ports, and
there's even a neighborhood only a couple miles away that is built around a small landing strip. Point being, I know planes. See all kinds, now what
one is based off of its engine sound, ect.
I showed my dad the pics and he said it was a beech starship. After looking it up it does look like one, but most are sitting in that airplane
graveyard in Arizona.
Also it was way to small, and it was flying illegally low, in airspace that nothing is really allowed to fly in. Also it was low enough that I could
see some kind of seal on the bottom.
Later that night I went for a short walk around the block to the park, and I was on the phone sitting in a bench talking about the drone I had seen
earlier to a friend, when (and this is where it gets weird) i became aware of the kind of "whirring" sound, kindof like a big AC unit people have on
the side of their houses. This was roughly 1am. And I look around to see what it is, and there's this lit up small craft descending quickly towards
me. I back away, and it drops down to like 10, 15 ft max away from me, about level with the tree tops. this thing looked like something out of blade
runner or something. It was back up in the air within 30 seconds. It's kindof triangular, and red and blue lights, some kind of turbine/rotor in the
This was startling to say the least. So I immediately Hurry home, and start asking friends and other people online and over phone if they'd seen
anything. A friend who lives nearby went out to see if she could, and ended up spotting one i could see from my perspective. I'm on a hill so she
came over and we started watching to just figure out what they where doing.
The longer we watched, the more we spotted. Mostly they where just hovering while holding a formation. They hovered for hours, all night actually.
I'm sorry I can't describe this thing better, I've just never seen anything like it.
I attempted to photograph the lowest hovering one, but it photographed weird. In reality it was a very bright, and hovering in airspace that is only
used on occasion by news coptors.
I have a dozen more pictures, but they all look like this. The only difference is that it appears a different color in each photo. I didn't show
up/register on video, I tried.
I mentioned earlier the amount of flights constantly over my neighborhood, but that night there was no commercial or personal air traffic of any kind.
NONE. And there has been little to no domestic air traffic every night sense, but there are multiple types of drones every night. (2-3) they fly in
patterns and hold formations, it's really surreal.
I watched them all night the first night, my friend did some digging and apparently L-3, or the branch of it that the pentagon contracts to develop
this kindof stuff, is based literally down the street.
Personally I think they are new demestic forms of drones, they are very agile, and can hover in place for hours. L-3 has job postings everywhere
L-3 has job postings everywhere for work on some unmanned, autonomous drone project. The application says secret government clearance is required to
be eligible for the job.
So, I just wanted to share this, do with this information as you wish.
