Sunnybank Hills, July 23 2008, 12.30pm

I would like to report to you not a sighting but a sound I heard moving through the air on Wednesday the 23rd July at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon. I was inside the house and heard go over the house what I can only describe as a very large aircraft swooping very low over the roof. but with no engine noise at all. Accompanying the very clear and almost loud deep, kind of buffeting/swooshing sound, was a loud constant whistle coming from it too.

I am familiar with the sound an aircraft makes when it is gliding without its engines running or idling. There was absolutely NO idling propeller, motor or jet engine associated with this, other than the loud whistle sound as though a protruding piece from whatever it was was whistling as it cut through the air.

I could hear the sound swiftly approach the house, pass over it at low level (maybe 50-100 feet?) then disappear away, over a period of only perhaps 6-8 seconds. In fact I slightly cringed as it really did alarm me by the suddenness and weirdness of it, and felt to me in those seconds like an aircraft without any power about to come down after just missing the house!

I live in a very quiet part of Sunnybank Hills Qld, where light and airline aircraft associated with both Archerfield and Brisbane airports often fly past or overhead, causing a very big difference in noise and I know what they all sound like. There were no gusty wind conditions at the time either, just light rain.

I am a 39 year old male with all senses and faculties in good order and definitely no influences from drugs, alcohol, paranoia or schizophrenia.
