|Fast hard high altitude maneuvers
Stopped pickup and got out, waiting for friend, looked up...
noticed a jet in the sky, and saw what I thought was a satellite crossing the plume behind the jet. Noticed that the 'satellite' was really moving fast compared to the normal amount of time for satellites. Object then changed course in a tight curve (at that speed, current tech, gotta be about a 5 - 9G turn at what sure looked like 3,000+ mph) and proceeded straight again for about 10 seconds where it met up with another 'satellite'. At this point the two objects started doing a criss-cross of flight paths, while making another high speed tight turn (tight being defined as hold out hand at arms length, spread thumb and forefinger, the turn occured within that space at arms length...tight turn.). Both objects continued criss-crossing each others flight path while making two more turns 'together' before I lost them in the light pollution of the city. Objects were dimmer than the airliner I initially spotted, no visible running/collsion light on either of them, no visible plume like the airliner. Airliner was at an estimated 25,000 - 30,000 feet in altitude (assuming that would be normal over Calgary, AB when not stopping) and the first object was noted to pass behind the plume from the airliner.
It is possible that it could be modern fighter craft, but it would have to be one tough model of aircraft to execute that kind of turning. If so, very impressive...and very impressive G-Suits too considering...
