UFO at the Air Force Base. Dad Military denies it still, but mother admits to it.

My family and I were staying at the TLQ's (Temporary Living Quarters) we were moving to Dayton, Ohio. My father has been in the Air Force for quite some time.

My mother threw her back out, and she was in the bed one night. My father and I always love looking at stars and stuff, and that night we were suppose to have a meteor shower. My mom helps verify the story, so I know that it really did happen.

I was about 10 years old. My father and I went outside and walked over to a good place to see if we can see the meteor shower. As soon as we walked over to the area immediately there was a saucer aircraft I would say about 85 yards from us hovering near the tree.

My hair raised up on my arms and I stood their in AWE. The craft was rotating it had numerous different color of lights. It was saucer shaped and I want to lean that it looked like it had a double stack shape to it. It was hard to see the craft because of these lights all over it.

My dad just stood their. I was like oh my god there is a flying saucer. I couldn't believe it because my whole life my father said that stuff was non sense, but my mother believed in them because her mother had witness a UFO herself.

Within about 3 minutes, the craft immeditaley took off. It made a vertical direction, and I am not kidding you, diffentely left us with a speed amazingly fast. After that happened I know it was not man made, or at least anything that could have been man made with our current technology.

I immediately ran inside to tell my mom about it. My mom to this day stands behind me that I came in and told her all aboutit. My father who works for Air Force Intelligence orginazatin even currently, denies it.

Well I recently got married and have 2 small children myself. I was telling my wife about it, and how it really bugs me my dad denies that this happened. Even though I saw it, and immediately told my mother about it.

I confronted him about it with my wife and mother. He told me it was a blimp! LOL A blimp does not shoot vertical at mach 7! +.

One t ime at another Air Force base my father and I saw a Nighthawk, F 117. This was before the public new about stealth aircraft. My father said that is a Military Experimental Air Craft. So why didn't he dub what we saw a military expermental Aircraft like the craft that we did see.
