Wing shaped UFO spotted above the Banks city area.

It was hovering about 2 miles away at a pretty high altitude. I thought it was a B-2, or one of those old Flying Wings, but it was hovering in a still.

It looked alot like a B-2, it was blackish dark grey. It hovered for about 1 minute, then it sharply shot forward and then slowed down to a stop. It then hovered for about another minute and then it shot up at an angle into the sky and dissapeared.

I saw a ufo when I was 10 years old, but I havent been looking for them since. I have a major knowledge of aviation so, I can tell the differences between aircraft made in this world, and I know that wasnt something I've ever heard of or seen before. I dont know if it was making any noise due to a Cessna flying circles over head.

I called the Hillsboro Airport (our local airfield) and they said that they were not tracking anything in that direction, but they said that it was probabally a military jet from the Portland Airbase. Yeah right, the base only has F-15s as their jets, and they wouldnt be flying a jet that could do what this did around here... This was a UFO.
