a dark oval shaped object that made no sound that travelled at very very high speeds

this is very exciting as i have always wanted to report what i did see that day, the time of year above might not be exact,it was somewhere between april and august 1997 i think possibly around june?

i was blockpaving a driveway at the top end of Lancaster near the motorway (m6) when me and a friend heard military fighter jets approaching from the south,we observed two,both flying very low,one of which flew right above us so low that my friend commented that you could read the numbers or lettering on the underside,the other plane flew above the houses on the other side of the road,we observed these for about 7 to 12 seconds approximatly till they were out of sight,

my friend then walked off the drive and was stood facing me on the pavement,i was still on the same spot looking south for any more that might of been flying in our direction when i seen something else approaching,there was no sound at all and it was moving fast very fast it was following the path of the plane that had flown above the houses on the other side of the street,it was higher up on its approach but sort of swayed from side to side as it lowered down above the houses,the movement sounds simple i know but i cant exactky describe it but this is what made me think,what the hell am i looking at and i said to my friend "look at that",to which he grinned,all he had to do was turn his head,

by the time i said it again i was shouting and pointing frantically,at this point it was directly behind him,he was still grinning,by the time i said "look at that" a third time i was jumping up and down like a mad man pointing and shouting and that was it the object had gone,sadley i alone witnessed this and it was only there for afew seconds it travelled i would say three times faster than the planes we seen only afew seconds earlier and must of easily caught them up,the shape of this object was i would say was oval it was dark in colour black or dark grey and it was kind of fraid and blurry around the edges i couldnt say if it was spinning or what it was hard to tell it was amazing and i have woke up in the middle of the night years after wishing that my friend had looked round so i could of been backed up on this,because it made no sound he didnt look,what i seen that day was a UFO to me,wether or not it was man made or not who knows?
