    I have no claims to insider knowledge of this area, but I did visit
Freedom Ridge one day in 1994 (?) ...... was in Las Vegas for a conference
and felt I couldn't pass up the opportunity. Didn't see anything from the
hilltop except buildings.

    Driving back, though, I saw a contrail appear suddenly in front of me
in the valley I was driving through, about 20-30 min down the highway from
the Freedom Ridge turn-off. I looked and saw a discontinuous contrail
rapidly heading down the valley and gaining height. Stopping the car, I saw
a swept-wing jet making the trail and leaving my field of vision very

    The contrail began so low it was between the surrounding hills and my
vantage point (although I didn't see the plane itself there, or hear it).
The smoke trail seemed typical of a jet contrail (to my eye) except that it
was discontinuous.....the length of the segments was maybe 20-30 times the
width, with intervening areas of 3-4 times this length where there was no
contrail. This pattern continued all the way to the plane generating the

    I doubt any secret plane would be tested over a public highway in broad
daylight, but I was wondering if anyone knows whether this contrail pattern
can be seen in any standard military jets?

    The contrail gradually dissipated while I watched for ten minutes or so
on the side of the road. I couldn't see any contrail leading from the head
of the valley, and remain surprised a plane would be so low to the ground
as the contrail indicates it was...
