As reported by several people from around the world, we witnessed something the day of the terrorist attacks on TV, viewed only once and our kids commented on it at the time with a "what was that" remark. Nothing more was said but the last two days (Oct. 8 and 9th) in Las Vegas, NV while viewing Telemundo, a major Spanish speaking channel, there has been much airing of the footage, actually extended over what what shown during the day of the event. This time it was being commented on in Spanish and shown on the screen was the object, a disk shaped, silverish object, quite large, seemingly the size of a couple of busses seen to be hovering between the towers, after the first airplane hit, but before the first tower collapsed and before the second airplane crashed. The footage was being shot from a close by helicopter and narrated in English by a female newscaster. She pointed out the object to the cameraman with a startled "look over there, what is that". The cameraman's comment was much more graphic, such as "what the **** is that?!" He filmed it for a few seconds and then the disk shot out from between the buildings and directly towards them. The woman sounds like she is exclaiming, screaming slightly and the camera guy says something and actually leans back and films from a reclining angle as the object careens rapidly up and past them. This footage has been aired several times and each time seeing it it's quite startling. My original comment to the kids before seeing it was that it must be some kind of secret surveillance craft that we have and don't want anyone to know about but upon viewing it, one just can't believe that we have such a capacity. I've seen the comments from around the world of people who viewed something like this and would like to have this investigated. Is there some sort of news blackout that has prevented this particular shot from being re-aired in the U.S. Interestingly today it was announced that Sony is buying this network. Maybe the type of freely decided upon ! news for mat will be curtailed. Hope not, because this is really happening and people deserve to have some sort of explanation - if only to be told that the government is aware of, or acknowledging this as "real". We typically don't watch this channel, but our son does at times. We've had the video tape in since then, to record this footage if it airs again, but it must be public record somewhere that your agency can investigate. My husband even advised me not to write because it was so frightening. Any comments?
