    I’ve been asked to give my ufo account.
    The time and dates elude me but it was around the beginning of this century.
    I was on a flight from the UK to Atlanta.I was sat just forward of the left hand wing by the window sat alone.Im unable to sleep anywhere other than in bed so was reading a book.It was just after dawn,the sky was clear blue with a few wispy white clouds.I looked out of the window and saw what looked like a sky scraper,ahead to the left and below the plane.I immediately thought I’d against all odds,fallen asleep and we were approaching our destination,I glanced to the flight indicator and we were flying around 35.000 feet half way across the Atlantic.I looked back out of the window and we were approaching the “skyscraper” which appeared to be static.It was still below our height.Its hard to estimate size but it appeared to be big,it was completely black,dull not shiny it was shaped like the Empire State Building and was pointing straight up.The lower portion of the object was obscured by the white cloud and I soon lost sight of it behind the wing.The passengers around me were sleeping so I don’t think anyone else witnessed it.I don’t drink or do drugs,have never to my knowledge hallucinated and was a serving police officer at the time so used to making observations.I spent the rest of the journey trying to rationalise what I’d seen.To my regret I never asked any of the flight crew if they’d seen it as I was I suppose in denial.I was meeting my girlfriend at the airport and told her what I’d seen.She has zero interest in the subject and so the conversation ended there.When I returned to the UK I told my best friend what I’d seen but no one else.I then inexplicably forget all about it.It was only several years later that it popped back into my head.It was only when my friend and girlfriend said they remembered me telling them about it that I began to trust the memory.
    At the time of the incident my interest in ufos began and ended with Star Trek.
    That is my one and only experience.If it’s something we made then they are really good at keeping secrets and far more advanced than I thought.

    I really dont.I'm a cynic by nature and require proof for just about everything and I just couldn't compute what I saw or explain it.So much so that I'm convinced that I subconsciously decided to blank it from my memory.As I said it was only a good few years later that I remembered it happened at all.This was due to seeing a fellow police officer i think his name was Gary Heseltine asking for officers to come forward with their experiences.(I was advised by my boss not to do so,so I didn't).
    Whatever it was, appeared solid,smooth,dull black and I think stationary.Definitely not a balloon,a shadow or any other misidentification i could think of.
    I've never seen anything like it since.

    The largest object in this image is the nearest I can get to what I saw.A giant hovering monolith?

    Very much like that but remained upright and stationary!.It was much closer to my plane too.Great find.It was definitely more solid though and didn't alter or diminish in any way as we passed by it.

    That's a dark contrail created by a jet (some contrails are very dark like that, like the exhaust from an old car). Seen from a certain angle it can look like a solid object - that video startled me when I first saw it, until I read a comment below the video from a commercial airline pilot, and took a closer look. They can take on a variety of eerie shapes, depending on the relative trajectories of the two planes. If this video hadn't been so long, it would've been impossible to see the shape shift and thin out as the emitting plane leveled off and headed away.

    The shock in that woman's voice is understandable - the damn thing looked like a giant black monolith at first, then seemed to tip over in the clouds.

    I can't say that this is what you saw, but given the brevity of your viewing of it, and the creepy af quality that these things can have, it seems reasonable.

    It's close and the best explanation I've come across for what I saw.My only concern was that the thing I saw was much wider and longer,it didn't move or fade at all and was uniformly solid.Having said that there is a good chance you are right and it evaporated once out of my sight.It's a relief though as I'm happy now that I'm not going mad and I didn't hallucinate.
