Three times the size of a normal NGB-2 bomber.

I, as well as many of my neighbors, have seen triangle shaped planes for many years. Whiteman AFB is just South East from where we live so we know that these triangle shaped craft are F-117 fighters or NGB-2 bombers.

I could not sleep on the night of 5/1/2016 so went out to have a smoke, around 1 AM.

I saw what I though was going to be a NGB-2 bomber approaching from the northwest, heading southwest to Whiteman AFB.

As it got closer, I could tell it was gliding at tree top level, which is unusally low. It was approximately three times as large as the normal NGB-2.

No noise, 2 red lights at each end of the its wings.

So either Whitman has a new version of the NGB-2 or something is checking them out.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded serious-minded to us. He corrected the time to 1:00 a.m., not p.m.. PD))
