MARCH 21, 2017   ………. BRANDON FLORIDA ………..9.15 PM

We were driving south on Faulkenburg Blvd. towards home in Brandon at about 21:12 hours. I saw what I thought was the back view of a jumbo jet heading towards MacDill Air Force base on my right over a field. It got my attention because it was so large and seemed so close. There was a large white light in the center, with a small blue light on one side and another white light on the other side—as if on wing ends. There was a small red light on the belly of it and was blinking.  However, as we got closer, we saw it definitely wasn’t moving. So then we thought it was a tower of some kind with weird lights, but there are no towers in that area and it definitely wasn’t that, because I saw this thing rotate mid-air rather than turn. It was definitely triangular/teardrop sort of shape—kind of both of those. It reminded me of the jets I saw in the sixties and seventies, only a little larger.  I‘ve spent a good portion of my life in and around the military, so I‘ve seen a few. Its nose definitely pointed downwards briefly for about ten seconds or so, not really straight down, but at an angle and there was a long shaft off the nose of it. I saw a flash of dark metal as it shifted and the definite shape. We heard no noise whatsoever. It appeared to sit quietly in mid-air at about eight stories up, it didn‘t seem to be much above the tree line from our point of sight from the road. My daughter (29 years old) kept saying, “It’s so close. What IS that?  My husband nearly drove off the rode into the bushes because we’d gotten so excited, but he didn‘t see it because, well, he was driving. By the time he’d turned around, it had moved  in  the  opposite  direction  going  North/Northwest  towards  Tampa International, but it had gotten really far really fast without a sound. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say it was some sort of stealth jet with an odd shape. However, I have never seen a craft quietly rotate mid-air like that or head off so fast ! without a sound. It just didn’t behave like a plane, blimp (wa! s way too fast for that), drone (was too large for that), or helicopter. And it sure was no weather balloon!  NOTE: The above image is my CGI.

MacDILL AIR FORCE BASE…TAMPA FLORIDA……The 6th Air Mobility Wing is comprised of the 6th Operations Group, the 6th Maintenance Group, the 6th Mission Support Group and the 6th Medical Group. In addition to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, is also home to 28 mission partners, including U.S. Central Command and U.S. Special Operations Command. The presence of these two unified commands and other mission partners creates a unique multi-service community at MacDill, with all branches of the armed forces represented.  So, although MacDill is an Air Force Base, it is also home to many soldiers, sailors, Marines and coast guardsman.   Because of this, we refer to ourselves as “Team MacDill.”
