Duration: 3 min.
No of observers: 2

Location: Dallas, TX, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

Enormous silvery disk hovered for 3 minutes above Dallas Love Field airport (~10,000 ft). Two unmarked black copters pursued.

Coming back on bus from team building retreat. Heading north on I-35. Observed 2 large black/dark green helicopters with 2 propellers front and back flying south app. 500 ft altitude, offset by 1-2 copter lengths. No markings. Director of global support sitting in seat in front of me. I said, "((name deleted)), look at the military helicopters". He was on the cell phone. Most others were asleep around. At this point I noticed a huge silver disk shaped object, metallic in nature, brilliantly reflecting sunlight, hovering at about 9-10,000 ft. above Dallas Love Field airport. The copters were flying directly toward it. ((name deleted)) then looked at the copters. I said, "what is that above them". He said, "something is flying above". I said, "I think it is a UFO". At this point, we both stared out the bus window transfixed. I was determined not to take my eyes off it. I should have yelled "UFO", because there were at least 5 video cameras and 20 cameras on the bus, but I couldn't take my eyes off it. I know the object was extremely large, because eventually the helicopters were directly under it, in the same formation, and the diameter of the disk was larger than from the back of the trailing helicopter to the front of the leading one. This was actual, not apparent. and the copters were about 8500-9500 feet below. I haven't done the math on this yet, but if the length of that type of copter can be found, a reasonable estimate of the actual size of the craft can be derived. It was magnificent and beautiful. About 30 seconds after the copters were directly under it, it disappeared. I wasn't even blinking, let alone looking away, and it simpy disappeared. The copters were out-of-sight in a few seconds after. Note: altitude estimate derived from knowledge of meteorology and the apparent shrinkage of the copters as they approached it, time of day, and relative sizes of airplanes coming in and out of Love Field. Sunny, sparse fair-weather cumulus clouds. I work for a Swedish telecom company (16 years). Job title: Master Engineer.

This event happened yesterday afternoon.
