UFO Sighting in PMRF Barking Sands, Hawaii on 1979-08-15 00:00:00 - 3 objects in formation one on top of the other may have been just one object giving off a sparkling trail
In 1979, not sure about the day or month, while flying on a usmc military ch-53a/d helicopter from mcb kaneohe, oahau to barking sands nas for touch and goes. we (two pilots and two crew chiefs) were flying about one mile west and parallel to kauai around 8:00pm when we (4 marine crewmembers) observed several objects casting a trail of glittering sparkling lights like used during 4th of july. the objects speed was incredibly faster than our f-4 phantom jets. it seemed to fly directly over the island parallel to our position but at a extraordinary higher accelerated speed. we then notified approach/tower at barking sands and they said they seen it on their radar screen but couldn't identify it nor it's rate of speed which exceeds our fastest aircrafts. we lost sight of it in a matter of 4-6 seconds. we didn't see it ascend into the evening sky, only straight ahead until it disappeared. my question would be; how could any known military,civilian aircraft or satellite/missile move at such a high rate of speed which normally would leave a exhaust/vapor trail and yet this fly object exhaust trail glittered. at that speed, no way... a state trooper in new mexico on a ufo tv show 3 years ago (2013) had described the exact same event that i had seen 35 years ago.
