Smithfield, North Carolina - 02-27-13
3 airplane-shaped objects too low to the ground to be man-made seen over Smithfield, NC on Feb 27th; seen by many.
At 8:00 pm on Feb 27th my son-in-law was working in his barn, he heard a very loud noise outside and came out of the barn to see what was happening.
He was surprised by 2 very large plane-shaped objects with very bright lights (white and red) just above the trees behind his barn.
They were so close to the trees he ran back in the barn because he thought they were going to crash, but they did not.
He then came back out to see the crafts glide over the field next to their house, just then there was no noise at all from the crafts.
They turned on one side and then turned again to the other side, the wings were so close to the ground he knew they could not be anything man-made. My son-in-law then ran into the house to tell my daughter what he was seeing, but she had ran to the front porch because she had heard the very loud noise; they both watch their neighbors come out side to see what was going on too.
As they stood there watching these 2 airplane-shaped objects there was another loud noise and there was another large object joining the other 2 in the field.
They could not have been any kind of airplanes we make because they were very low to the ground and making no noise that this time at all.
They were so scared my daughter called me to come see these crafts.
I jumped in my truck and headed over to their house. I had my niece with me and I told to watch the sky as I drove over to their house which was about 10 minutes away from mine.
My daughter called me on my cell phone and said they were moving away from their house and headed back toward 70 Hwy, which was the road I was on.
I told my niece to keep looking as I drove as quick as I could; my daughter said you should be able to see them, they are huge, but because of the trees and the headlights on the cars meeting me I only could see some lights in the distance in the sky toward where they live.
By the time I got there the air was filled with jets from the air force base in Goldsboro, they kept circling around and around the area for about an hour as we kept looking, but could not see anything but jets in the air.
I told my daughter next time to document it with a pic or video, she said she was to scared to go get it. I told her we need proof of these sighting.
The 11 pm news on WRAL reported of lights being seen over Smithfield and Selma that night, but nothing more has been said about the sighting at all, we would like more coverage of these sightings.
