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 Gods earth to salute in such an expensive manner! ♦
