|Black Triangle Over Barksdale AFB Summer 1999
All four witnesses (including myself) were active duty in the USAF when we observed the object.
Summer of 1999, I, my supervisor, a subordinate, and Our boss, were on the flightline at Barksdale AFB. It was dead silent with a clear sky and no wind to mention. We first noticed some stars were missing and then realized something was blocking them out. We were the only four people out there on the line.
It was triangular in shape approximately 200 feet in length and 80-90 feet wide at the rear. There was a single red light at the front and a white light at either trailing tip. It flew around 5 mph and was completely silent. It was less than 800 feet in altitude.
It flew directly from the south end of the ramp to the north end. We were able to easily drive ahead of the object to view it longer.
Our Boss called the tower and nothing showed on radar.
We all stood there until the craft was out of sight and then returned to working. No reports were filed, no one wanted to be investigated, ridiculed, or worse.
Due to my current position, I omit certain information on the report registery information, but can be contacted at the e-mail I have provided this agency.
