Jet-like craft with loud noise and strange lights in over southern Rhode Island

At the above mentioned time and date I was in my house when I heard a loud jet-like sound approaching and getting louder. I went outside; sky was clear with stars, cold and dry. I saw the craft making the sound; it moved in a jet-like fashion and had several red lights only around its front. As it came from the east, it circled over my house then proceeded easterly again; as it did the lights flashed to all white, then back to all red non blinking. I could only guess at the full shape of the craft, which appeared chevron-shaped. It headed east over the town of Narragansett and I could still hear its roar. I also saw a small white circular light accompanying the craft for a brief time as it headed east. The craft then veered away from the paralleling white orb. I then called the South Kingstown police. A dispatcher/policeman took my call seriously and said I was the second caller to this phenomenon. He had no explanation. The rest of the evening was! quiet. I did not call my neighbor as I didn't want to alarm his kids.

Jet-like objects again over southern Rhode Island

This event was a repeat of the previous night's sighting at almost the exact same time. I heard the jet-like sound of the previous night, went outside to see the same or similar craft with the same loud jet-like noise in the same circular pattern around my house, that is, coming from the east, turning over my house and then heading back east toward the ocean. I got a good look at the lights on the craft and they did not resemble at all the lights on a jet; the lights were two solid red non blinking circles.

I call the South Kingstown police as I did the previous night, spoke with the officer/dispatcher who took my call seriously. I told him that the craft resembled UFOs and not jets by the lighting pattern on them. The second craft was only briefly seen as a red light and was to the north of the closer craft, which was almost directly over my house. The dispatcher said he would call the state police to see what they knew.

I didn't hear any more about it until the next night while watching the evening news at my mother's house some 30 miles away. Apparently many calls came in to the news station (either WJAR-TV or WPRO-TV, both in Providence, as I can't remember which station I had on). The TV reported said the 'mystery jets' were training runs by jets based on "Cape Cod." He did not say where. There is only one air base on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts, and that is at Otis Air Base in Mashpee. They were quick with the report and merely flashed to an archive photo of jets lined up and they were not the "F-16s" that the news station mentioned as coming from Cape Cod. It seemed like a cover-up story to me the way it was presented.

This morning at 11am I again heard the now familiar jet-like sound of an approaching craft. I went outside to see a low flying jet of either the F-14 or F-16 shape. Oddly, however, as it banked by raising one wing I saw absolutely no markings of any kind on the totally gun-metal grey plane. Oddly, too, there was a smaller Cessna-like one engine plane flying very close to the 'jet.'

At this time another witness, an TV/internet installer at my house came outside and I pointed up at the craft. He looked at it and thought it was a F-14 as he was familiar with some jet craft. He, too, thought it odd that the 'jet' had no markings on it and that he thought the smaller plane was flying with the jet somehow. The 'jet' flew in the exact same pattern as the night observations I made, coming from the east, flying around my house in a low flight pattern, then heading back east again over the town of Narragansett and out to sea.

I called the South Kingstown police again. I reported what I had seen and the dispatcher said, 'one minute please' as he went away for 3 or 4 minuted before coming back to talk to me to report that all he knew was that he was told by someone that the 'jets' came from an air base on Cape Cod somewhere and he said that was the official explanation. I thanked him for taking my call. I then called the Air National Guard at Quonset Pt. in North Kingstown to see what they knew. I could not get to talk to anyone as I had on the morning of the 22nd, Friday, where a Sergeant with the Air National Guard told me there were no jets reported to him and none were at the Quonset location (only C-130s and helicopters). He said that Air Defense in Providence would have picked them up on radar anyway. He also said that he was at home in Narragansett the night before and had in fact heard but not seen the 'jets.'

I also this morning called Senator Reed of Rhode Island's office to see if they knew anything about these flights. A woman who answered the phone knew nothing but took my name and phone number and said she or someone would call me back but I have not heard from the Senator's office the rest of today.

By the way, I saw no lights on the F-14/16 like craft in this daytime observation as well as no markings on the craft.
