Airplane West Simsbury Very Bright Reflective Silver

Driving car in West Simsbury, saw silver airplane off Old Farms Road. Expert opinion years later would state that it most likely would have been aircraft from Simsbury or Bradley Airport in normal air traffic zones. The object in the sky was very shiny, which I became reminded of when using aluminum tape recently. Based on expert opinion it most likely would be an airplane, just reflecting a high amount of light. This is not abnormal in itself as the sun is bright at these times in the summer, the unsettling detail was that the airplane itself was so glowing with shine. This brightness has not been observed since this event years ago in 2006. I would state that even though it apparently leans towards a normal aircraft, it was so shiny with luminance that I have not been able to explain. There were other cars on the road, though I am unaware if anyone else thought anything of this airplane incident.
