My friend and I were hiking in the hills south of Poway, California, on January 1, 1988. It was about noontime.

Suddenly, very high in the sky, there were three “puffs” flying in formation or at least perfectly spaced from each other. They seemed to be of cloud-like material.

My friend always carried her camera with her and she could see them much more clearly through the 1000mm telephoto lens. She snapped this photo. There were two more photos but this one was the best. The other two photos cannot be located after a big household move.

The “puffs” did not make any noise.

We then heard and saw an F-14 fighter jet, no doubt from nearby Miramar Naval Air Station, fly-by right past the three objects or cloudy puffs. This made us think they might be “targets” for F-14 shooting practice by the “Top Gun” pilots but the F-14 never interacted with them and flew off to the southwest.

The sighting lasted about 10 minutes, during which time the three objects simply flew on out of sight, also toward the southwest, but not the same flight path as the F-14. They seemed to a little slower than the F-14. Their speed never seemed to vary. They did not change shape as clouds might.

My friend and I did not send the photo to any UFO group at the time. I was busy making plans to move to Ireland and she was busy with life. We tended to forget about it but have discussed it in emails a few times since then.

When I saw the Virgie, Kentucky, object recently I realized our three UFOs from 1988 had a similar shape which might be called “sled-like,” two runners and a middle membrane or platform.

Perhaps military people out there know that these three UFOs were F-14 target training “clouds” or some such, please do not hesitate to let us know this!
