National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 6/15/2010 20:40 (Entered as : 06/15/2010 20:40)
Reported: 6/15/2010 9:04:51 PM 21:04
Posted: 6/23/2010
Location: Northport, WA
Shape: Formation
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Several small objects in formation (not consistantly) with military jet at around 20-30k feet.

I happened to look up to see what aircraft was passing over, to the north, and was stunned to see a military jet, probably twin engine, size of a 727 roughly, and it had three small objects flying with it in a "V" shape.

After they passed, I continued to watch and it appeared in the distance the smaller craft were wavering or doing some sort of strange maneuvers. The smaller craft were of indistinguishable shape to the bare eye and were probably around 20' to 30' head to tail.

Solo military craft fly overhead regularly but I've never witnessed this configuration or behavior.

((NUFORC Note: Refueling formation, we wonder? PD))
