Posted: 10/12/2001
Location: DFW Airport (north of) (Dallas), TX
Duration: 60 sec
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangular "formation" of 3 very bright white lights above 37,000 feet.

Airline crew observed what appeared to be a triangular formation of 3 very bright white lights (like landing lights). Formation appeared to turn from an approximate 250 heading to the south then east before fading comensurate with a turning formation of tanker or transport category aircraft. ATC reported no aircraft in our sector or in any sector at our 11 o'clock.

((NUFORC Note: Witness is a senior airline pilot, who also served as a military pilot, and appears to be an extremely credible source. He has participated in many refueling operations, and he stated that what he witnessed that morning was not a refueling operation. The object executed a turn from a heading of approximately 250 degrees to approximately 90 degrees in a matter of seconds. This individual was one of two witnesses who appeared with me on the Art Bell radio talk program, "Coast to Coast," on Thursday night, November 11, 1999. PD))
