|Boomerang Object = B-2 Stealth...not a UFO
I wanted to file this report as a means to offer an explanation to the report from New Port Richey, FL in September 0f 2005 of another observer seeing a boomerang shaped object.
I live in a nearby area of Pasco County and this recent report may have been most likely a military aircraft. I say this with a fair amount of confidence because, two years ago, I was commuting home from work at about 18:00 hrs in the summer on Interstate-75 heading northbound to Pasco County, FL. I was caught in a traffic jam and remained stationary for a good 20-30 minutes.
Out of nowhere, I saw a black sliver of something floating over the interchange where 1-75 merges onto I-4 East to Orlando. I then stared at it for a few seconds more and I struggled to make out what it was. As it got closer, I then realized that this is a B-2 Stealth Bomber gliding over the interstate to my right hand side at about an altitude of perhaps 100 feet! It was a startling sight. I had my car in neutral and i bolted out of my seat in excitement and stuck my head out of my sunroof. I saw it make a graceful arc and bank in a westerly vector towards Tampa Bay. I believe it was on final approach to land at nearby MacDill AFB. This aircraft glided by and made no noise (over my engine noise), i was able to get a dead-on side view of it and I could even make out the pilots helmet as the sun glared through the cockpit glass. Thats how Low and slow this thing was. If I had not been looking out to my right as I was sitting in traffic with nothing to do, I would have missed it completely. That is how "low-observable" this aircraft is even in a populated area. Since this was an explained observation, I do not need to be contacted.
