Lethal and survivable, the F-16 Fighting Falcon employs a wider variety of weapons than any other fighter aircraft.

-- by Lynn Taylor

13SEP97 - Sat. (approx. 14:00 hours) I was with my father-in-law, working on a storage building in the back yard of my home, when I heard the roar of jet engines approaching from the west. Two F-16 fighter jets made a tight turn directly overhead, and headed northwest. About four minutes later, we could hear them coming toward us again. Once more they made a quick turn, doubling back, then disappearing again.

"What the heck are they doing up there?" I asked rhetorically. Thinking the show was over, I found myself wishing that I could have video taped them as they made their pass. But before I knew it, they were back a third time. Again, they turned sharply overhead then headed off into the western sky. As the planes passed overhead, their altitude was very low; I estimated, no more than 200 feet.

I finally went inside and brought out my video camera, but they were not to return again that day. I later learned that my sister-in-law, Leanna Jeffers, was also a witness to the fly-overs.

Since I began researching UFOs, I have grown accustom to military aircraft flying over my house. Generally, it is Hueys, and the occasional Apache. Sometimes fighters will pass overhead, but usually traveling from point A to point B, and NEVER this low. I should feel honored that the military would select me and my little peace of God’s earth to salute in such an expensive manner! ♦
