An Arkansas witness reports watching and photographing multiple triangle-shaped crafts just after 10:30 p.m. on June 15, 2011, over Little Rock that he speculates may be the secret "Boeing TR-3B from their Phantom Works project," according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness reports receiving information from a "reliable source" that pilots flying over Little Rock were reporting multiple unknown objects. The witness then went outside to have a look for himself and saw triangle-shaped objects.
"There was an aircraft approaching from the west-south-west moving to the east-north-east," the witness stated. "There were three amber lights, one on each point of the triangular aircraft with a solid red light on the belly of the craft. This craft was out of my line of sight after three minutes."
Then several minutes later, the witness reports watching two additional crafts in the eastern sky that were moving south.
"While I was watching, one of them 'disappeared', which I am guessing it went lights out. It appeared shortly thereafter either closer to me or much higher in altitude. It hovered and reversed heading to the north, just as being reported by pilots. Then they were out of my line of sight...as clouds moved in."
The witness believes that the objects were American-made.
"I was excited to see the aircraft which I believe are the Boeing TR-3B, from their Phantom Works project."

AR, June 15, 2011 - Triangluar aircraft...3 Amber lights, one on each point...red light on the belly of craft. MUFON Case # 29577.
At 10:28 p.m., June 15, 2011, I received a text from a reliable source that there were multiple sightings of UFO's being reported by Pilots flying over Little Rock, AR.
Apparently, commercial pilots were picking up radar returns where aircraft were not supposed to be, but ATC radar wasn't picking them up. Several pilots were getting visuals of the crafts as well.
An AWAC was in the area...they were able to get radar returns. The multiple UFO's were flying at an altitude of 35,000 ft. Pilots were reporting the UFO's were able to hover and reverse heading without turning the crafts.
I went outside to see if there was anything in my line of sight. There was an aircraft approaching from the wsw moving to the ene. There were 3 amber lights, one on each point of the triangular aircraft with a solid red light on the belly of the craft. This craft was out of my line of sight after 3 minutes.
A few minutes later on the eastern sky there were two aircrafts moving to the south...while I was watching one of them "disappeared", which I am guessing it went lights out. It appeared shortly thereafter either closer to me or much higher in altitude. It hovered and reversed heading to the north, just as being reported by pilots. Then they were out of my line of sight...as clouds moved in.
I was excited to see the aircraft which I believe are the Boeing TR-3B, from their Phantom Works project.
I was able to catch a few photos with my digital camera.
