UPDATED: Was There a UFO Over South Tewksbury Thursday Night?

Low flying jet aircraft reportedly circled the area twice before flying off.

Did South Tewksbury get buzzed by a UFO on the night of Thursday, Nov. 29?

No cattle are missing, there are no reported abductions and no crop circles but there was certainly some odd activity in the skies.

Resident Tom DeVeau took video of what appears and sounds to be a jet aircraft of some type flying very low over his South Tewksbury neighborhood.

That, in itself, might not be so strange, but Deveau said the aircraft circled his neighborhood twice before flying off. The video he took was of the aircraft making its second pass.

Tewksbury Police had not heard about the incident. A spokesman for the FAA said they are looking at the DeVeau video and checking radar data and will try and come up with an answer for what type of aircraft it was and what it was doing.

Take a look at the video. What do you think this is? Private jet? Military aircraft? UFO? Santa arriving early for tonight's Lighting of the Common?

I saw it land in a field behind my house and I started talking to the aliens I swear to god

What I meant by no chance was there was no way it was 2000ft in elevation when it passed over my house. 1000 maybe...at most, but seemed like 500.

Most likely it was a 707. They are the military refueling aircraft also known as KC-135's. There main Station in the North East is in Portsmouth New Hampshire. The odd thing is UFOstalker.com has a report of a sighting in Andover/ Tewksbury River rd that night as well. http://www.ufostalker.com/ufostalker/Black+Triangle+Sighting+in+AndoverTewksbury+Line+Massachusetts+United+States+on+November+29th+2012/44234 Tom the links you reported there being four flights that night between BED and PSM, and oddly enough the flight's were paired together. Very strange how the pair in each group doesn't have a logged time of landing. Call me crazy but I think what you saw was a KC-135 providing identity coverage for a TR-3B unconfirmed top secret military aircraft.

Why would noone consider the possibility of it being a smaller private/commuter jet, having to circle while waiting for clearance to land at Hanscom? Obviously sounds like a jet, has lights marking it's shape, like a plane, and all . . . from what I can see on the tape, in relation to the house, didn't seem that low at all to me, but I wasn't standing there, in person, either. One night -- I think last summer -- I was going into Oakdale lot from Shawsheen Street and my neighbor and someone else were stopped just inside the parking lot staring at a VERY low-flight jet--and, not a private one at all! I grew up beside Hanscom in the flight path and was used to every type of plane in the 50's & '60's, and then some. Broke the sound barrier many times w/o warning--that'll knock your socks off; saw them refueling in air many times, watched the air shows, etc.., but never have I seen a jet fly over the intersection at Oakdale as low as that one did. We were all just shocked.
