Small black ufo paces commercial flight

Colbert (Spokane), Washington State, Monday, May 04th, 2020, @ 2:00 p.m. (Pacific)—A husband and wife witness a very small, unidentified, object, as it trails closely behind a commercial airliner taking off from Spokane International Airport. The object appeared to be within one fuselage-length of the aircraft, and just below its altitude.  Both objects appeared to fly through cloud briefly, and then reappear a second time.

A Commercial plane flies past with a ufo pacing it perfectly, it was matching its speed and height, is was about 200 feet behind and down just a bit, as to avoid the turbulence from the commercial flight. We watched and there was some background clouds coming up so we could see if this ufo was just some sort of engine wash image but the ufo shape and form did not change as the cloud - which was white- sharpened the ufos image as we watched, we didn’t have our phones - so no image. We watched as they flew to the east and we couldn’t see them anymore.

(NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she sounded to us to be quite capable and sober-minded. She is quite eloquent in her description of the sighting, and she holds a very responsible job. PD)
