Possible explanation for 10/13 Weird Aircraft Siting

Regarding the October 13th aircraft siting featured on your website, your observer fails to mention that Wright Patterson AFB (Fairborn, Ohio) is nearby. Last Friday (10/17), I saw a full-blown 747 on approach to the base. It was coming in low and slow - I remember wondering what holds that big thing up in the air! Obviously, those planes are huge and, because they are so big, they just give the visual impression that they are just lumbering along at a very slow rate of speed.

It's very possible that your observer saw one of these planes on approach to Wright-Patt.
