Fighter jet hoovers above Austin neighborhood

Austin, TX- At 5:46 pm Central Time on Sept 11, 2011, I received a phone call from a very reliable source that a stealth fighter jet was moving very slowly facing southeast above the Montopolis neighborhood in Austin, TX.  It was described as being unusually low to the ground around -no higher than 5 to 6 stories up.  The color was all black as it hardly made any sound.  The exact location of the sighting was at 1111 Montopolis Drive Austin, TX 78741 near the Dolores Catholic Church.  My source attempted to get a better viewing of the jet, however, within a minute of driving to the location of the jet, it was nowhere to be found.  The million dollar question is why was this jet in this area?  The closest military airbase is in San Antonio (Kelly AFB) , 85 miles away.  If anyone else witnessed this please contact Crisisboom@gmail.com or leave a comment.

    That’s a F-22 Raptor. I live off of south congress, I saw one flying fast and low yesterday over downtown Austin at approximately 4:45pm. By low I mean like 5000 ft alt. I heard another one this morning at 11am or so, however, did not see it. I feel very confident in my sightings, I used to be fascinated by these planes when I was younger. I’ve seen and heard many at multiple air shows. I’m asking myself the same question as to why and how this $150 million dollar and also very rare aircraft is being scene in Austin TX. As far as I know, San Antonio does not house any of these planes. The closest facility I’m aware of is in New Mexico. I would hope that they were just doing some training and/or exercises, my gut seems to tell me otherwise… Any opinions?
