V-shaped craft makes banked turns at a high rate of speed while buzzing rooftops of businesses and homes.

Driving eastward, west of Gila Bend on I-8, my son and I watched a v-shaped craft buzzing the rooftops of homes and businesses. What made it more than just a plane was its ability to hover and also make sudden banked turns which appeared to be too sharp for the human body to withstand. It did not perform loops or barrel-rolls, but it did seem to be 'showing off'.

If it was manned, it would likely be too small for more than 1 person. The actions it took over houses and businesses were daring, if not downright dangerous. 5 intensely bright lights were visible only when viewed from the front, but the plane nearly disappear whenever it traveled away from us. The closest it came to us was perhaps 1/4 mile. We could hear no sound.

This went on for 10 minutes, then it simply leveled-out and moved rapidly, but steadily, to the east and out-of-sight.

I will forever regret that I did not have my camera.
