Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 seconds
craft was seen hovering 100ft above the ground at the southeast corner of Powers and Platte at 9PM on 6/28/99 for about 20 seconds north of airport.

I am a truck driver very familiar with this area. I was driving north on Powers Blvd about to turn left or east on Platte Ave. I saw a very large craft that was either moving very slow or hovering. I new I was by the airport and at first thought it was an aircraft. Howerver, it was to large, moving to slow or not at all and like nothing I have ever seen. It looked like an ace of spades flying horizontaly with the pointy end forward. Depth perseption of the craft was dificult to determine. It appeared that you could see through some parts of the forward section and into parts of the middle section and the back seemed solid. It was dark and I would say the craft was black. There were lights on the three points of the spade and interior lights that seemed to give the craft 3 decks at its thickest point. Again, depth perception was unusual as the interior lights were not on what would normally be considered the hull, but rather within the craft. When I realized what I was looking at I was frightened, completed my turn on to Platte Ave. and sped off. A co-worker was following me and when we arrived at the terminal he was going to say nothing. I asked him "did you see that?" He said "Oh the triangle?" We walked to the west side of the terminal where we could see the corner where we had seen the triangle. There was a small plane in a tight circular bank around the area we had seen the triangle. We assumed the piolt had seen the craft also and was checking out the area further. I am 45 years old, have a bachalor's degree and have never seen anything like this before. One other thing we were only about 100 yards away from it at most! We also both saw the same thing.
