No sighting. Just an unexplainable swoosh of air as if a plane was going to crash. But then NOTHING!

I had just come home from Applebees and it was about 1:30AM. I was going to the bathroom and decided to open the window because it was unseasonably warm that night (about 50 F). I was reading a magazine and then all of a sudden I hear this loud swish of air outside. It sounded like a large aircraft flying over with absolutely no engines on. Then I heard a second sound immediately after the first one. I thought to myself that something is going to crash. I remember the TWA 800 crash and I thought that it was going to happen again in my back yard. However, I looked outside and saw nothing. I thought maybe the object was on the other side of my house and I will hear it crashing soon, however, there was no crash. it just swooped by with no sound whatsoever other then the sound of the rushing air around it. I quickly finished up and went outside and it was the weirdest thing. It was so quiet. I have never heard it so quiet before in my life. Not a single sound. Absolutely no wind. No sounds from cars or anything else, just complete peacefulness and a uncomfortable quietness.

I don't know what this was that flew by my house that night. I thought for sure a large plane would come crashing down but nothing ever happened. It was the strangest thing I have ever experienced. I still get goosebums thinking about it.
