Strange flyover witnessedI read the report from late May in the database about the two aircraft 'PIGGYBACKING'.This is strange,because I witnessed the same thing.We were standing on my friends porch when my 5 year old son pointed to the sky and said'look Dad'-I was suprised to see two aircraft following one another-closely,without visible space betwwen them-my friend witnessed this as well.We speculated that one may be a refueler,however,they were both the same type of aircraft,leaving a single contrail,and no sound.I would guess that they were flying at about 11,000 ft.Neither one of us had ever seen aircraft flying in such a manner.No idea if these were millitary or commercial;I was in the Air Force for five years,my friend worked for a year installing runway lights on commercial airfields,he was unsure as well as to the model of the aircraft involved.Thought I should report this due to the incident in May on your database.
