BIG CYPRESS SWAMP CIRCULAR CRAFT BEING CHASED BY AIR FORCE

ME AND MY FATHER WERE FISHING IN THE BIG CYPRESS SWAMP AREA IN FLORIDA IN 1996 IN THE AFTERNOON AND WE NOTICED A CIRCULAR OBJECT FLYING AT A HIGH ALTITUDE WITH SMOKE BLOWING OUT OF IT'S TWO SIDES OF THE CRAFT, THIS WAS BEING CHASED OR MONITERED BY A AIR FORCE FIGHTER JET, IT LASTED FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS THEN THE CRAFT DISAPPEARED, THE CRAFT WAS GRAY. WE BOTH KNOW WHAT WE SAW AND WELL, COULD NOT EXPLAIN IT, I WISH I KNEW BUT MAYBE SOMEDAY I WILL.

((NUFORC Note: The description, we feel, does not rule out a possible refueling operation. Just a guess, however. PD))
