A Widnes youth claims he saw a top-secret ‘stealth’ aircraft swoop just feet above rooftops in Widnes.
Laurence Baker, 17, said he was at home when a black sphere flew over homes near his house on Millington Close, Foxley Heath. Laurence, who studies art and design, is keen to know whether anyone else saw the same thing.
He said the mystery orb had an antennae protruding from near its rear end, which was facing towards its front and over the main body.
The teen believes the mystery vehicle was a ‘stealth’ aircraft because it appeared to be covered in black panels that ‘looked like scales’.
However, he said he does not think it was the US Air Force’s world-famous B-2 Stealth Bomber, F-117A Stealth Fighter or any other recognisable aircraft.
Laurence said the vehicle was heading silently toward North Wales at ‘jet fighter’ speed. He said it was about the same size as an RAF Typhoon and was flying just 20-30 ft above the rooftops.
Despite the craft’s unusual design, Laurence does not think it was of extraterrestrial origin.
He said: “I’m not going to say it was alien craft because that’s completely out of the question.
“This was some kind of advanced stealth aeroplane. It had to be military.
“I think it probably was something to do with the armed forces because unmarked helicopters have been hovering over Foxley Heath lately.
“I was in my room when it happened and I’ve never seen anything like it before.
“I’ve been asking my mates about it but they don’t seem to have seen anything.”
