At 9:08 pm, my mom and I were in our barn feeding the horses for the night. I was out back closing gates when I heard a rumbling; like what you hear when a jet is flying over. I've heard that a hundred times.
There was a full moon rising in the east about 3 or 4 fingers above the horizon and a very clear night.
I looked up to the west to where I heard the plane and saw red lights moving SE but it was strange. It had 5 lights in a boomerang pattern; one on the nose and two more on each side.
If it was a plane, it was the biggest plane I've ever seen. It was really high up too, but I've seen airliners around that same height and it was 5 times bigger than those.
There were two jet fighters tailing slightly behind the tips of its wings. I knew they were separate aircraft because they moved independently from the red lights which stayed together and they were not red, but more like white/ yellow in color.
As the object and jets passed over I could see the jets had blinking aircraft lights, like you see on all aircraft. I kept watching for a few more minutes until the lights faded (by the glare of the moon) to the SE.
I went back to the barn and told my mother what I had seen. A few minutes after that at 920 PM, I saw 2 jet fighters returning from the same direction going NW.
They were no longer escorting anything and had their afterburners on. They were going much faster than when I had previously seen them.
KEN'S NOTE: Bisbee Douglas International Airport sits S-S/E of NcNEAL. This Airport looks like an abandoned Air Force Base or Secret Base in Arizona. See on Google Earth. Very strange. This may be the destination of the above flight.
