You might be interested in this info below that I sent to UFOlogist Tim Matthews. You asked if anyone else has seen triangular flying vehicles. Well, my wife and I both saw one together. It was September 1994. We were travelling North on the A1 (a major North-South highway in the UK) a few miles south of our home. As we passed near to RAF Alconbury, a USAF air base (fully operational at the time) at 23.00, this huge, silent, black triangular craft, with a red/purple light at the front tip and white lights at the other two corners, flew quite low and to our right. It then seemed to invert and flew back the way it had come. My wife then said that it appeared to hover. The craft was silent and pretty big. I've seen prop planes like Hercules transports, various fighters, U2s and helicopters take off from that base in daylight and at night and it WAS NOT one of these. My guess is that it was a secret stealth recon plane, the replacement for the SR71 Blackbird, called Aurora or Firefly. However, the technology is amazing. It was low, slow, silent, and hovers.

A while later (a few months), my wife was driving her mother along country lanes near our village and she nearly drove off the road, because she was startled by this huge black triangular craft that rose silently from behind a hill, flew over the car and was gone. This was in daylight. I showed them pictures of the stealth fighter and stealth bomber and both said it looked more like the bomber but it was not the same. The stealth bomber has not been deployed outside the USA, but it is rumoured that these secret triangular craft are deployed in the UK and Germany as well as the USA and crewed by NATO pilots. I'll say one thing, it was a magnificent sight and I won't forget that brief encounter. I expect that in 20 years or so it will be on the Discovery Channel! The Blackbird was retired in 1990 but was built in the mid 60's and was very advanced. So, I wonder what amazing prototypes are being built now to outperform these triangular craft?
