Duration:2 minutes
bright glowing object left tracer mark as it sped off

I was a taxi driver back in 1996, and i had just dropped passengers off it was very quiet no one on the road i was proceeding down the dual carriage way back to taxi base.

I was smoking a cigarette at the time,and it was when i went to flick the ash out the window that something caught my eye above the airfield.

It was a bright light shaped like a upside down diamond glowing like a larva lamp between purple and white, I thought i might be seeing things so i wound down my window to be sure it wasn't a reflection on the glass, I observed it for about 30 seconds then it took of at very high speed in the direction over Bulwell Nottingham it left a red/orange tracer mark as it sped off.
