MILITARY SIGHTING BY BRITISH SERVICEMEN IN FORT LEWIS

WHILST ON EXERCISE WITH THE BRITISH ARMY IN FORT LEWIS, MY SELF AND A COLLEGUE BOTH SIGHTED STRANGE LIGHTS IN THE SKY, WHICH AT FIRST HOVERED AT A DISTENCE AND THEN AFTER APPROXAMATLY AN HOUR FLEW OVER US AT A LOW SPEED AN ALTITUDE. THE WAS NO NOISE, ONLY A VERY SLIGHT HUMMING AND SENSATION OF PRESSURE OVER OUR BODIES. EVEN THOUGH IT WAS FLYING JUST ABOVE TREE TOP THEY WERE NOT MOVING AS THEY WOULD FOR ANY CONVENTIONAL AIRCRAFT. JUST BEFORE THE INCIDENT THERE WAS A VACUM OF SOUND WE COULD HEAR NOTHING AT ALL EXCEPT FOR ONE ANOTHER, AND DESPITE THE SLIGHT MIST WE BOTH GOT A CLEAR VIEW OF THE AIRCRAFTS UNDERCARRAGE AS IT FLEW AT NO MORE THAN 70 MTRS ABOVE US. AFTER THE INCIDENT IT FELT AS THOUGH YOU HAD WALKED OUT OF A DEEP TUNNEL AND STEPPED INTO THE OPEN. IM STILL A SERVING MEMBER OF HER MAJESTY'S ARMED FORCES AND HAVE SINCE SERVED IN VARIOUS THEATERS SINCE THEN. I WAS IN MACEDONIA WHEN THE AIR WAR AGAINST SERBIA RAGED OVERHEAD AND I HAVE YET TO SEE ANYTHING RESEMBLING WHAT I SAW THAT NIGHT IN FORT LEWIS.

((NUFORC Note: Precise date in February 1998 not indicated by witness. NUFORC has received several equally intriguing reports from personnel either near, or on, Ft. Lewis or McChord AFB near Tacoma, WA. PD))
