Cedar Rapids, IA

Sighted on Tuesday 18. June 2002

Shape: Formation | Duration: 1 minute
Source:

A formation of three black winged objects very high up was sighted on a clear morning.I heard a sound of jet like engines or rushing air briefly from overhead. I looked up with prescription sunglasses into the morning sky.I saw two black winged objects high up, soaring but with no wing flapping at all. They were flying to the South West. The interior side of the wings were curved inward. I then saw a third object move closer in to join the other two just as one made a turn toward the South.They seemed too large for birds. They slightly resembled the U-2 planes or maybe the B-2 Spirit bomber. The wings were scalloped on the trailing edge and this was apparent even at the great distance. I watched them for about a minute until they faded from view due to the high altitude. The formation flight of the three widely seperated makes this remarkable. The date is approximate within a few days. I have watche high altitude birds fly such as Eagles and Condors and Buzzards but these were larger with more streamlined features.
