Triangular aircraft tumbling on it's side!

I was driving down a street at night and saw lights ahead of me and to the right out of the corner of me eye. I saw what appeared to be a triangle on it's side at about a quarter mile ahead and just above the tree line. I could not see the triangle shape, but saw lights at each corner (three lights) that made up a form of a triangle. The lights were not blinking. I do not recall if there was a blinking light or not anywhere on the object. The aircraft appeared to be on it's side and appeared to be "tumbling" forward. It then leveled off and made a 90 degree turn. This aircraft was going very fast. This sighting took place about a mile from Kelly Air Force Base, Texas. I do not know what this aircraft was, but I do know three things: 1) I have never seen an aircraft tumble forward and then level off in this manner.

2) I have never seen an aircraft travel at the rate of speed it was traveling.

3) I know of no aircraft that can make a 90 degree turn at this rate of speed, although the B-2 Stealth Bomber comes close, but I know that it does not tumble on its side.

I have been observing aircraft for a long time and have worked on different types of aircraft in my carrer. This was no regular aircraft!
