" Flying Wing Before It's Time "

Early spring my brother and I saw a "flying wing" being refuled by a tanker at 1:00 - 2:00 in the afternoon. I understand that at that time there were no big Flying Wings. I didn't know till years later, what I saw. Granted this is no UFO story, but it lets me know that there are really things up there unknown to most people. No need to contact me as that's all I know. We were looking northwest, Objects were about 3-5 miles, guessing about 4000to5000ft high. (low ?) Thank you

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. Does anyone know whether the U. S. "flying wing" bomber was flying, by the spring of 1953?? PD))
