Everyone’s got a story or two about that time where you saw or heard something you shouldn’t have. You’ve probably got some for yourself, things that you’ve never admitted you saw or heard, things you don’t dare to reveal because of the implications involved.
Then again, maybe you just caught some minor stuff. Maybe you were snooping around somewhere private or perhaps you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

That’s when I see it… a small black triangular aircraft rolls straight into that hangar and within seconds the doors close behind it.
This was my honest thought when I saw that, “I was DEFINITELY not supposed to have seen that.” I ended my break and walked back into my building.
A few weeks later we got our first pictures of the F-117 Nighthawk followed by a confirmation it existed. I smiled a little and thought to myself, “I already knew about that…”
