explanation of earlier report

This is a follow up to a report I made earlier about loud booms, lights in the sky, and an unknown object being transported on a flatbed truck from a supposed crash site near Arlington,Tx. The object was a full scale model of an F-35 being transported to England from Lockheed in Fort Worth, with a military escort. The loud booms and lights in the sky were fireworks from a nearby racetrack in Kennedale, Tx. at 10:30pm to 12:30 am. It turns out the emergency vehicles in the parking lot of the supposed crash were part of a candlelight vigil for a skateboarder killed the night before on the access road of I-20 at that location. The two incidents were separated by 3 hours, and the military convoy just happened to pass by at the time of the vigil, around 9:30 pm, and there were entrance ramps to the freeway at that location blocked for the passing of the oversized load.
