Location: Sumter, South Carolina
Date: February 16, 2008
Message: I live in Sumter just behind Shaw AFB. I saw a cigar shaped object moving silently just above tree top level on Feb. 16th just before dark. It was so close to the tree tops that I thought it must be a blimp, but why would a blimp be flying that close to the ground at dark. Not to mention it was in the direct path of the flight line take off and landing. I slammed on brakes and got out of the car to see it a little closer. It most certainly was not a blimp but I did not get a picture of it.
I have never been someone to believe in this sort of stuff but now I’m beginning to wonder what our military is up too. One thing is for sure, I have bought a good camera and will begin to keep my eyes open.
