I have never been able to get excited about blurred or fuzzy photos, and this unfortunately is one such series of pictures. However, as James Fox
said, I know what I saw--and took pictures of. Of all things, my wife had called me and said there was a lot of unusual flight activity circling
Carswell Air Force Base and though she is a skeptic, she knew I would be interested. As fate had it, I needed to get to an appointment near the same
location shortly myself, so I went a few minutes early to see if I could get meaningful pics of the situation. What my wife and I saw was several
airplanes--very large planes, some fighter jets doing what I thought initially were touch and go exercises, and what turned out to be unmarked
helicopters.Sure enough, they were circling in a flight pattern neither of us had ever seen before, and I have lived here my entire life. They were
systematically widening the circles they were making out from the base in widely spaced pairs. One would fly back over, possibly doing some near touch
and go, sometimes not and then begin their circle again. It would take as much as one to five minutes for the next plane to appear, perform the same
maneuver, and fly off again. I have never seen as many planes involved in a sequential, one after another "touch and go" exercise, nor any other
activity. Eventually my wife wound up in Azle, which is 20+ miles to the west and the same planes were reaching that far, eventually father before
turning around. Then the planes were joined by unmarked helicopters flying quite low in comparison to normal helicopter flight, only slightly above
the rooftops. I should mention that my best guess is that regardless how far away the planes flew, I don't believe they ever topped 5-7,000 feet in
altitude themselves. I stopped the car to take whatever pictures I could with my Galaxy S 4G, worrying the pics wouldn't turn out. After my meeting,
which lasted a little less than an hour, they were gone. I immediately contacted a well respected UFO researcher I am privileged to call a close
friend and asked if she or her husband could identify the planes or helicopters or even what kind of maneuvers/exercises they were performing. She
wrote back telling me I needed to look a lot closer at one of the photos. It seems one of the low flying copters was closing in on an round object I
didn't see at all when I took and sent the pics.
That's about my best short description, but it still bothers me. I would have shared sooner, but I had to sit still long enough to learn how to post
the pictures in the thread. A while back I promised to keep tabs on Carswell due to a rumor there could be a DUMB there, and in that or any other time
I have never seen this type of flying drill. Your opinions are always appreciated, and as time passes it seems to nag at me more and more so I wanted
to put this out for your inspection. Hope I can get them uploaded correctly.
First, the cargo (?) planes circling. Why would such large planes be involved in such erratic exercises?
Here is the first picture of one of the unmarked helicopters
A second, harder to see photo of one of the planes:
And here is the one with the object, lower right hand corner:
Finally, as good of a close up as I could manage with my limited computer skills:
Seems to me that it is a metallic sphere. Is that what you guys see?
Thanks for input.
