7 white, saucer shapes flying in v formation on live TV in Oshkosh, WI

I actually viewed this on a live, breaking news broadcast on the local NBC news affiliate, WTMJ4 here in Milwaukee. There was a breaking news story on the 4:30 report, there had been an accident on I41 just outside of Oshkosh and they had live footage from a helicopter. I happened to look at the clock it was 4:58 then turned 4:59, I was watching the footage and noticed 7 silver/white on the top, and dark on the bottom, saucer/oval shaped objects fly in a v formation accross the bottom of the screen, I have Tevo so I pressed record, because what I saw shocked me. I told my husband whom I was on the phone with at that time what I had seen, and he just laughed a little. Later that evening when we viewed the recording we were totally amazed and a little freaked out. These objects were absoutly NOT birds or anything else like that. We watched it for almost 45 minuted, rewinding it, in slow-motion, freeze frame, frame by frame, we tried to analize it but still could not begin to explain it. They flew in a v formation and at one point it almost looks as if one of them get too close to another and sort of "bounces" off of the other, and at times you can see the formation "adjusting". You can plainly see that they are in between the helicopter and traffic that was backed up from the accident on the ground. You can also tell that they are traveling over at least 75 mph, because they are going faster that the traffic on the highway below. I have the footage but I am not sure how to record it so I can email it. I suppose I could get a DVR and hook it up to our TV then record it that way. I actually, video taped (with our video camera)the TV so I could show my parents what we saw. I also contacted WTMJ4 via email but have yet to hear back. I suppose you could get file tape from that day??? Anyway, we are totally amazed and confused, and think you will be too.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she sounded sober-minded to us. We have requested still images from the tape. We do not know what appeared on the screen of the television. PD))
