an object like an airplane fusilage without wings flames from it were going up not, i repeat, not trailing the object

In my life i have witnessed two ufo's i am not positive the date above is accurate i only say it was this date because it was December and after seeing the show on Kecksburg i felt compelled to tell someone.there is a way to verify the date i quess with old tv gudes or something. a friend and i were about to watch a movie on television the movie was "pinky" out of philadelphia pa. that is how you can tell the date. anyway what we saw was an object that was on fire. not like a fire ball but actually on fire. it was moving slow enough that the flames were going up not like a fireball where the fire was trailing it. it made a course correction and had no wings. i know this because when it chancged course an airplanes wings would have become visible. since we saw it from more than one angle with no hint of wings i can only assume it had none. it was an intense sighting that lasted quite a long time. if this interests you,i can tell you more. you may contact me p.s. a different friend and i saw something far more incredible in the summer of 1963 but that is another story.
