1978 Ufo Grand Prairie Century 4 drive In.

In 1978 I was 10 years old, my family decdided to go to the drive in on monday (family car night) to see a documentry called "Beyond and back" about life after death.

The drive in was called the century 4 drive in. It was located in Grand Prairie Texas off of Great Southwest pkwy near the GP and Arlington border.

Beyond and back was the second feature. the drive in was about 50 % full.I was young so I was playiny in the gravel and my parents and brother were on the tailgate of a old truck.

I noticed people flashing headlights and honking I then noticed people getting out of there cars. I heard my mom say "oh my gawd----Do you see that?" My father say yes as well as did my brother. By the time I looked up the UFO was gone.

What they claimed to see was a Trinagular Ship that made no sound, the size confirmed by all 3 was as big as a football field. It had lights beneath it in a variety of colors and when it decided to leave it went from a stand still hover to the size of a star in a matter of 3 seconds.

One more thing I need to add, the US naval airbase and a shop called Vought was less tahn 10 miles away near Moutian Creek Lake.

I know this sighting was real we still talk about almost 30 years later.
