HAHAHAHAHA!!!!



If you have lived here any amount of time you know that Eglin AFB is 35-45 mins from here and they do ALOT of night missions. The light that was seen was chaff or flares from a plane...

But the guy basically called up and said Hey I think a plane went down in the bay, I keep seeing lights and stuff flash I dont want to sound weird or anything it might of been a UFO... ahaha

I saw the same thing. It was odd looking and it almost looked like a small plane going down in a ball of flames. Then it just disapeared. There is an Eglin range just across East Bay. Our house shakes when they use that range since I am right on East Bay.

I saw the plane in O.B. last night on the news. Seems the guy ran out of fuel and had to land on the beach:doh:doh:doh Called someone to bring him some more fuel and took off. Plane was on the beach for about 30 minutes. How does this guy get a damn pilots license??
