Green Lights Triangle PatterI am retired Army aviation of 8 years with two deployments to Iraq. I have seen it all, day and night. I understand FAA lighting patterns and those of all aircraft worldwide. I was dropping my step daughter off at school. The time was 0814 exactly, I was headed N on Dixon Rd. toward Rifle Range Rd. The road is low speed of travel at 25 mph, a field for the school on the left high trees on the right. At the intersection there is a tall tree line.I observed a triangular pattern of three green lights. They would have been positioned directly downward from the aircraft they were attached to. They were of a flood light type, this is inconsistent with any search light, landing light or position marker lights to include night vision friendly directional lights. The aircraft appeared to be in a left bank descending turn low on the tree line as if in a final approach of a landing. In the air force it would be considered a tactical landing due to the harsh maneuver required to perform such a maneuver. Camp Lejeune is the property the aircraft was flying over.
