The late Doc Berry said it best—“The Massive UFO Flyover of Arizona, March 13, 1997”; his title best describes what happened that Thursday evening. Moreover, nine years later, I (we) still look for a return visit from our alien friends. I don’t have a problem saying that feared word “alien” at all. “Nothing of this earth” describes what we saw pass in front of us around 8:30 PM that night. Nothing!

To date, as I write this, I am still encountering new witnesses and hearing new stories of that wonderful day; so many reports will never make the Internet, television, radio, or ever be told to the general public. This is so distressing! One goal I had when we moved to the high country of northern Arizona was to find new witnesses and meet many of those who were just too concerned for their jobs, worried about ridicule from friends or family or just not knowing who to contact. There are many more who I feel have yet to tell their story. . . .

I believe it has since been established that a company in Texas was working on prototype lighter-than-air recon platform that matches the shape of the object spotted in AZ and some time later in Illinois.  At high altitudes it was nearly invisible but it would fly at lower altitudes at night during test flights.

I was standing outside of an apartment complex with a friend of mine waiting for his roommate to come home. The apartment complex was located near 48th St. and Baseline Rd. in a suburb of Phoenix called Ahwatukee and it was between the time of 9:30-10:30 pm.

We were standing outside just chit-chatting, when we started noticing what looked like something very large in the northern sky heading towards us still off in the distance. We didn't see a craft at first, only a formation of lights. We kept talking but at the same time keeping a close eye on this object that was heading nearer to us. I was only 19 years old at the time so I had very limited knowledge of UFO's or secret military planes for that matter, and it really didn't occur to me right away that this is what it could be.

As we talked and watched it get nearer, we could start to see just how massive this craft really was. We stopped all talking about other subjects, and our entire focus became locked in to this approaching object. The craft was moving completely silently, and due to it's size we remarked how weird it was we couldn't hear anything even though it was still some distance away. As it came even closer, we could start seeing how the sky was darkened out between these lights as well. It was definitely a solid object and not some other type of flying formation.

Right, the recon platform I mentioned had some prototypes and one was in excess of 400 feet across.  The company founder said the goal was to build one nearly a mile across.  The prototypes were V shaped and were tested many times in the southwest and neighboring areas.

I read this explanation long time ago and It seems plausible.

And you know that how?   There are often large airships floating around the big city where I live.  We have two major airports and lots of little one.  No one seems to mind.

At the very least, the pilots/operators/owners would be required to get some sort of permission first.

Indeed, but that is typically not an issue as long as you stay out of the flight paths of airliners and what have you.
