I saw unmarked jet aircraft flying and moving in impossible ways at impossibly slow speeds.

I was driving a moving truck eastward on Highway 389 with my Wife trailing behind in her car. There were also at least 5 cars behind us because of the slower speeds my rented truck would go. We were about 12 miles west of Fredonia, Arizona at the time. We saw traveling toward us three of what appeared to be smaller 4 engine "T" tail flat black unmarked aircraft flying less than 200' off the ground. Okay, so what? Their air speed was less than 20mph. I am a retired engineer by trade and am certain of that fact. I was traveling about 50mph as I approached them. The plane in the lead turned with its wings completely vertical to the ground and crossed N to S over the highway clearing a power pole by less than half the length of the pole. Then it leveled out and flew back over the highway to the north side of the road flying with the other two parallel to the highway in an east to west direction. We had all three planes lower in altitude to abo! ut 100' and fly again at less than 20mph directly over the line of cars. I had heard no sound and could not believe what I was seeing, so I rolled down my window and did not hear even a whisper of a sound from any of them. I have flown radio control airplanes since I was 18 and my planes would have stalled at the speeds these were going. The planes shadows covered our cars as they flew over us because they were so low. I dialed 911 at that time and reported it. The Sheriff said they had a lot of experimental military aircraft fly that corridor. I'm reporting this as a UFO experience because there are no conventional aircraft that can fly that slow doing the things I saw them do. I'm guessing their airspeed from watching the power poles as they passed. Also the experience took some time. Let's say their stall speed was 120mph this would have happened in a blur. This was in slow motion and none of us could believe it. There were no markings of any kind on them. I ! had my camera sitting on the seat beside me but was so amazed ! by what I saw I didnt even think of taking a picture. I looked into the engine of the lead plane and I could see no parts of any kind in it. I did some contract work for the Military at the Dugway Proving Grounds Ditto Labs and had a small Military jet fly low over my car and I thought it was going to blow my windshield out. These had no sinsation of wind or sound of any kind at 100' from them. Why am I reporting this now. Well I reported it to MUFON a couple of days later and all they would say was there was no plane that matched my description. Well I finally found a plane that looks a great deal like it. It's a BAe-146-100-sta British plane minus the stinger on top. These looked like airplanes but were not subject to gravity. I'm absolutely convinced that the engine pods were empty. They did not require an airfoil to fly or move. Everyone was simply speechless. They had no identifying marks and were flying objects, as such UFO's. I remember the details because I was ! fascinated with them. I've watched Military aircraft since I was 5 years old in Tucson watching them fly into Davis Monthon AFB matching them to a small picture book of Military aircraft my Parents gave me. As I live I testify that what we saw were not airplanes in the conventional sense of the word. This has bothered me every day since then. My perspectives were good and crystal clear to even seeing a flash of two people inside. I should have included that the planes were casual and floating a little right and left very close to the ground. They looked like they were having fun and showing off for the cars below. That's exactly what it seemed like.
