|Triangular object photographed out airplane window near London, UK.
While flying from Newark, NJ to London, UK (on a Continental Airlines Boeing 777, I believe) I took a snapshot out the right side of the aircraft about 30 or 60 minutes before touchdown at Gatwick airport. I was in the center of three seats, so I could not actually see well out the window when I snapped the shot. I just held my camera out to the window and took the picture. At the time I noticed nothing unusual. It was a clear, sunny day, and we were flying above the clouds. Upon developing my film, I noticed a small brownish triangular spot in the distance. The wing is also present. I have maintained that this is probably debris on the aircraft window, but persons I have shown it to have been inclined to think that it is something else, often describing it as similar to a stealth bomber. Since I did not observe whatever it was, whether something stuck to the window or else, I cannot offer any further details. And although I myself am skeptical, I figured there would be no harm in submitting the photo to persons better qualified to analyze it. I also have the original negatives, but would be reluctant to submit these since I have excellent vacation photos on the roll. If you would like me to send the photo to you, please let me know.
