Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2-5 seconds
Triangle shaped black craft spotted near Atlanta, Georgia.

While flying from Atlanta, Georgia, to Minneapolis, MN, spotted a solid mat black triangle shaped craft flying at a speed of approximately Mach 2 at an altitude of 31,000 feet.

The aircraft was flying towards the commercial aircraft I was in and passed on the right side of the aircraft approximately 500 yds away and 1000 ft lower than my aircraft's altitude.

Triangle shaped craft bore no markings and no stabilizers or visible fins. The craft appeared to be smaller than most fighters or personal aircraft and appeared to not have a cockpit of any sort.

The craft appeared off the forward right side of the aircraft I was in and then disappeared under the right wing. As far as I know I am the only one to see the craft.

I am in the military and I study aircraft that are operated by the U.S. Military. This craft does not match any current operational military aircraft.


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

Mr. Davenport, I did not inform the aircraft crew of the sighting. For some reason the thought never occurred to me. I have done some research however and I have found a prototype aircraft that is very similar to the aircraft I spotted. The craft that I found is the Boeing Phantom Ray which was produced 7 years ago in St. Louis, Missouri. I hope this helps some. Thank you for your consideration of my report and timely reply.
