Description: Listen to Audio of Witness Interview (MP3)
The witness was stationed in the Air Force at Whiteman Air Force Base (AFB) at the time. Himself and another officer were on security patrol at the time. He stated that no aircraft were scheduled to come in because the tower lights were off. At that point his partner saw a hugh delta shaped craft that was moving slowly over the base. The object was similar to the shape of a stealth B2 bomber, but estimated to be 400 to 500 feet long. The object "dwarfed" a hanger in size. The object was dark without lights, but was illuminated the ground lighting and the moon. The object made no sound and was gone in about 20 seconds. The witnesses were definitely familiar with aircraft considering that B2 stealth bombers, T38 trainers, and A10 "Tankbusters" were stationed at the base. The base contained nuclear weapons and is home to the 509th Bomber Wing. (The same wing that dropped the atomic bombs on Japan in World War II.) The witnesses did not report the incident for fear of debriefing.
Comments: This is an incredible sighting by credible witnesses. Certainly these triangular shaped (or boomerang shaped) craft are not stealth aircraft (as claimed by some debunkers). Both of these witnesses regularly saw the B2 bombers take off and land. A recent newspaper article regarding a B2 crash verifies that B2 bombers are stationed at Whiteman AFB.
