Two pilots spot three UFOs south of downtown Dayton, Ohio.

My friend and I decided to take a flight to Indiana for dinner, and were departing from Dayton Wright Brothers Airport around 1900 EST. There were three people in the airplane. Two of us were pilots with around 100 hours, and one other person who was not a pilot. As we took off and turned towards the proper heading we notice three bright lights off the left wing south of the airport. At first glance we thought it was a large jet then we noticed there were not any position lights, beacon, etc., and the craft was entirely too low to be a craft of that size.

As we paid more attention we noticed there appeared to be three different craft in a tight formation. This gave us the last clue that these craft were probably not anything we’ve ever seen before. Flying in a tight formation at night is dangerous, and keeping it that consistent would be nearly impossible.

We were climbing out of three thousand feet and I would estimate the three UFOs were at one thousand feet above the ground. As we looked down on the three craft they seemed to cycle positions in the formation, cut hard to the left, and took off over the city. All the people in the plane lost sight of the craft at this point.
