|Motionless winged black aircraft
Hi, About three summers ago, I was driving from Winston Salem NC to Charlotte NC. A beautiful day about 12:00 pm. Before I left, I opened all the windows and sunroof (forgot camera).
At some point in the trip, I looked up thru the sunroof. I noticed a small black object fairly high up; nearly overhead. It appeared to be a small winged plane.
About a half mile further down the interstate, I looked up and the object was at about the same position as before. Concentrating on it; I saw the wings and tail fins more accurately and said to my self how odd they looked compared to any other plane I had ever seen. I pulled over and stopped.
Still looking at it overhead through the sunroof, I realized it was motionless! I got out of my car to continue my observation of this black object (I was hoping some other motorist might stop to see what this guy was looking up at.) In the Navy, I was a 2nd Class Fire Control Technician; my action station was in the Fire Control Director at the controls and optics. I had seen many planes in the sky and had a good feel for distance from my ship to them. My thinking (at the time of the sighting) was that if this was the typical size of a fighter jet; it must have been about >1500 feet straight up.
I stared at it for about a minute; looked up and down the interstate; glanced up and it had disappeared.
The front/back of the object had a more sharp point than the attached rendering.
What stood out for me was that it was motionless and the stabilizers were the same width with the ends being parallel and in-line.
