Duration:8-10 seconds
An unusally loud, low flying , fast aircraft, with no lights, heading north of Erie County, PA dissappears.

It was a mixed clouds/ clear skies evening, I was leaving work when a strange engine noise drew my attention to the sky. The object I noticed nose dived then plateaud suddenly to about 1000 feet. The object had no lights, and the front of the craft was pointed. The wings of the craft drew back at a sharp angle. The rear of the vehicle had one engine but no exhaust/flames coming from it. The engine produced an irregular, loud noise, unlike any aircraft i've ever heard before.It had no propellers, was like a jet engine. The sound coming from the aircraft was very loud and had a very deep clanking noise,although the speed of the craft did not match the sound it was producing. It was heading north for a few seconds and abruptly disappeared because of it's speed. It was impossible to track because there were no lights marking it's spot in the sky.
