MY WIFE AND I WERE DRIVING SOUTH ON I405 WHEN I SAW WHAT LOOKED LIKE A LARGE AIRCRAFT ON FIRE DESCENDING INTO THE SEATTLE AIR SPACE. IT'S WINGS WERE ON FIRE. WE STOPED THE CAR AND WATCHED WHAT AFTER A CLOSER LOOK WAS A BLACK WING. THE CLOUD COVER WAS AT 10000 FT THAT EVENING. IT WAS JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS. THE FLAMES WERE REENTRY HEAT FLAMES. WING SPAN WAS ABOUT 600 FT. WITH A DEPTH OF ABOUT 100 FT. WE BOTH THOUGHT IT WOULD CRASH. IT JUST KEPT IT'S HIGHT AND VANISHED WEST OVER THE OLYMPIC MT'S. I WAS EXCITED THAT WE HAD SEEN A UFO AND BEING NEW YEARS I WAS SURE OTHERS HAD SEEN THE THE SAME THING. WE TURNED ON THE RAIDO AND SURE, OTHERS HAD SEEN THE SAME THING. I FACT THE RAIDO STATION SAID THEY HAD OVER 600 CALLS. THE RAIDO STATION CALLED THE AIR FORCE BASE THAT THE WING WOULD HAVE PASED OVER AND THEY SAID THAT IT WAS NOTHING MORE THAN SKY ROCKETS OVER LAKE UNION!! IT TRAVLED SO SLOW AND THE SITING WAS SO CLEAR THE COVER UP SO WEAK. WE CAN'T TRUST ARE OWN PEOPLE. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.
