Shape: Cigar
Duration:1 MINUTE
I was in a vehicle on an exit ramp on I-155w waiting at a stop sign to turn left onto lake rd.(hwy 78) in dyersburg, tn. I noticed a low flying dark colored object flying low to the north flying from west to east.

I initially thought that it was a b-52 bomber due to the length & the height of the fuselage being shorter or another type of large military transport aircraft. I turned left onto lake rd. & looked in my rear view mirror & noticed this object going straight down like a helicopter, not a plane, & appeared as if it was landing or going over the horizon. The object was initially traveling at the speed of an airplane & then began landing flat at no angle.

The object appeared to have been within (1) or (2) miles or so away. It was 1:49pm in the afternoon, sunny skies & I don’t recall any clouds in the sky. It was not a blimp nor a helicopter. The closest description I can give its maneuver is a b-52 with the landing capabilities of a harrier jump-jet.

I called the dyersburg police department & dyer county sheriff’s department on the next day to see if there had been any other reported sightings of this object, but I was told there had not been. I also learned that the dyersburg airport is to the south of this area & there are no other airfields in the area where this object landed. This is my first ufo sighting.
