Russellville, Arkansas triangle lights west of nuclear power plantWe were driving East on Interstate 40, through Russellville, AR. The time was around 9:40pm. I saw what i thought was a low flying plane move gracefully over the tree line about 200 yards ahead of us. I saw another set of lights less than a few hundred feet behind it. They just glided (for lack of a better description ) over the interstate. I didn't think much of it at first until the second set of triangle shaped lights came to a sudden stop on the tree line just to the right (south) of us on the freeway. We pulled off to the shoulder, I flew out of the car, and it was gone. Silent and instantly it disappeared, as my buddy and I watched. I documented it on my map and wrote down where we were at, so when we stopped for the night we could see of there were any small airports nearby. As it happens, nothing but a lake and a state forest in is that area of rural Arkansas. It was about seven miles west of Russellville on I-40, a few miles from a nuclear power plant.The objects came from the north side of the road at approximately 9:40 pm. The object I saw first was triangle shaped, with a solid white light at front and the lower right corner, and a solid greenish colored light on lower left. It flew relatively slow and continued its path over the tree line. The second craft was similar, following extremely close behind and had solid white lights on all three corners. It made a dead stop less than a a hundred feet off the shoulder of Interstate 40. It hung there for what seemed like 30 seconds, maybe shorter.((ADDENDUM #1 OF 2--FROM VISITOR TO THE NUFORC WEBSITE))Mr. Davenport, I would like to comment on a sighting dated 2/12/09 near Russellville, Arkansas. I live very near to the described location of the reported sighting. Based on the description furnished by the witness, I believe what was observed was a flight of three C-130 aircraft from the Little Rock Air Force Base. These aircraft fly directly over my home every night with out fail between 8 and 10 p.m.. The usual flight path is from the northeast to the southwest. Along this flight path, the aircraft pass approximately 3-5 nautical miles west of Arkansas Nuclear One (the nuclear plant metioned in the report). Additionally, the aircrafts' usual approximate altitude is less than 1000 feet and display the lighting characteristics described by the witness (on one occasion they were so low that they momentarily blocked the signal to my satellite television receiver). My personal opinion on the reported hovering of one of the aircraft is that if the aircraft is observed flying directly away from the observer it could appear to be motionless or hovering, as I have personally observed this with these aircraft on several occasions.((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to the source of this comment. We will post it, such that it is posted together with the original report. PD))((END ADDENDUM #1 OF 2))((ADDENDUM #2 OF 2--COMMENT FROM ORIGINAL WITNESS, AND SOURCE OF REPORT))I just made a report about a recent sighting. While I was on the website, I decided to look at my old posting from Feb 12, 2009. A response was made and I believe the response to be wrong and demeaning to my story. http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/068/S68848.html http://www.nuforc.org/webreports/069/S69646.html I grew up my while life on Sugarbush Road, which runs parallel to the Selfridge Air Force Base runway, here in Chesterfield, MI. I have seen nearly every type of military aircraft make its way over my house in one form or another. The C130 has ALWAYS got my attention when they would fly over because they were very low and VERY loud. They would fly so low you would think that they were skipping over the trees. So I am VERY familiar with the C130 and how they look in the sky, be it day or night. That being said, these were NOT C130 aircraft that we saw. They were MUCH larger than any aircraft I have ever seen. Also, I have NEVER seen a C130 fly right on the tail of another C130. It was so close it was like it was being towed by the other one in front. Regarding how the "it can look like it was hovering" comment, I understand when he meant, but that is not what happened. We were already coming to a very fast stop on the shoulder. The van was pretty much at a stop already when we saw it/them hovering. I think the response to my report is uninformed and based on what he "thought" we saw. He did not see what we saw when we saw it. We stand by our story!Thank you, ((name deleted))((END ADDENDUM #2))
