What we thought was an airplane in trouble and getting ready to crash land was really a diamond shape UFO

In June of 1987 me, my daughter and my niece where on our way to the store around 7:00 p.m. and, I was driving.

We thought we saw an air plane falling from the sky so I went speeding down the street to where we thought it would have crashed about a quarter of a mile down the street in the opposite direction from where we were headed and all the way we were thinking “this is going to be terrible” we could call for help once we saw where it hit, but we couldn’t really tell because it when down over a cluster of trees. When we got to where we thought we would see fire and smoke and evidence of a crash there was nothing.

We thought well maybe it was a helicopter flying low so, I’m still driving but we are looking up to see a helicopter but, it was not a helicopter nor was it an airplane.

It was a diamond shape object hovering just over the top of a little mom and pop restaurant (the restaurant set at the corner of a street called Carnation and the front of it is on Medgar Ever Blvd in north west part of the city,Jackson, MS and it is still there) a quarter of a mile down the street where we thought the trouble airplane would have crashed landed.

We where so scared I turned my car around and took off down the street away from it praying that whatever it was would not come behind us . . . but it did, my daughter and my niece were screaming "It's coming, its coming," only it zoomed upward pass us back up in the sky out of sight.

We knew that we would be laughed at or talk about so we tried to make sense out of what we saw, but we know what we saw was real, there was no question about it but, we promised each other we wouldn’t say a word about it to anybody, and we totally forgot about going to the store.

There are people who don’t believe there is a such thing as a UFO, will guest what, I use to be one of those people! ...but I lie to you not . . . BELIEVE IT! ...I saw it with my own eyes’ me and two other people and I will never, never, never ever forget it.

I just hate the fact that people think a person would make up something like that.
