My childhood friend and I witnessed a strange aircraft flying low above Metairie not in accordance with airspace regulation.

My friend and I were heading back to his house from the gas station when we observed an unusual occurence. It appeared to be a jagged an awkwardly shaped private jet with two pairs of wings. It was flying much too low for its distance from the airport. It hardly made any noise and didn't have the regulatory green and red wing lights. The bottom was fully lit up. The craft appeared to be a shimmery charcoal grey. My friend and I couldn't believe it and were filled with unease and curiosity. We tailed the craft for a few blocks. It made sharp unwavering turns like a helicopter before finally making its way toward Kenner (where the airport is). It was too far to be that low.

As we neared Cleary, we ran into a friend of ours and gave him a ride home. After bringing up the strange "plane," our mutual friend took the words out of our mouths about witnessing this strange occurence. He too felt the same gut-wrenching discomfort and curiosity. It was unreal.

My family has lived here our whole lives and not once witnessed something like that. My father was just speculating the other day that if aliens exist and have been working with our government, their craft may look more "humanized" by now…
