Second and Third witness to report.

This is to follow up on a report someone else had entered. You are not the only one who saw this. I personally did not see it, but my father and a co-worker of his told me about seeing something fly over the plant incredibly fast. (They both were at the time at work, at the plant) It has been a long time now so I don't have that much detail to say, but they said that it was very dark/black, and although it was getting dark, it was low enough to see. They thought it was a training flight with a supersonic jet from the airbase. The only reason I remember being told, was that I could not figure out how there would be a jet going above the speed of sound, less than 1000' up over the smokestacks that made now sound.

Was definately later in the month than the 15th as this report was changed to. I am also not certain of the date, but it was later in the month.

"I was on the second floor deck, looked up for stars, craft went right over me, just above tree tops, no lights, covered mile to power co. in about 5 seconds. It was so low, others had to have seen it. It was small and the bottom was striped like a bullseye. There was no noise. At the time K.I. Sawyer AFB was nearby.

I had taken the dog outside, I stayed on the second floor deck, and looked at the sky. It was overcast, the kind that gives off a daylight glow. The small craft came over, just above the tree line. No light, no noise. I turned and watched as it flew toward and into the low clouds around the power co. smokestacks. The craft would have flown over Northern Michigan University and a fly-by of the hospital (with all those windows). I could not have been the only one to see it. There was a Miss ?? Pageant on TV that night. The next day the papers headlines were about tanks going down the streets of one of the Balkan Countries."
