|Craft was seen over the nuclear storage area of Loring A.F.B.
I'm sorry to say I did not see the craft personnally. I was stationed at the base when this event took place. A friend of mine did who was a security police officer. If you can find out the date that the fighters were deployed from the base in N.Y. (Delta Dart aircraft)F-111's, then you will have a lot better idea of the time frame. They were deployed a couple of days later. According to my friend the craft were seen over the base late at night several times for the previous week before the fighters were deployed. The base commander told the sp's that it was a helicopter flying in from Canada not a U.F.O... He said he never heard of one that didn't make any noise, and that could manuever like that.
((NUFORC: The "Delta Dart" is the F-106. The F-111 was a later, swing-wing type aircraft.))
