An amateur photographer was out shooting wildlife in Wichita one day when something strange in the sky caught his attention.
“Right over the city, clear as a bell,” said Templin to KSN. “Anyone that was looking up would have seen it. You don’t usually see military or even civilian aircraft’s jets that leave contrails making those kind of severe departures off of the given route.”
The object was a triangular aircraft that Templin says made a few 180 degree turns in the sky, forming into an “S” shape. Templin told KSN that the mysterious aircraft was completely silent, which baffled him even more.
“Absolutely silent, no sound,” said Templin. “When I put it on my computer and processed them, I was surprised to see this triangular shape that is not like anything you typically see.”
Since spotting the aircraft and capturing it on camera, Templin has heard many theories as to what it could be, and the pictures have even stumped several seasoned aviation experts. They, too, are completely baffled by the mysterious flying object and have been unable to identify the aircraft.

According to KSN News, aviation experts told them that while they weren’t able to confirm what the aircraft is, they suspect it could be a B-2 Bomber, although they pointed out that if it was, it wasn’t “one of theirs.”
Templin says that he doesn’t buy into theories that the object could be an alien aircraft.
“It was one of ours or at least man made for sure,” said Templin, “so unidentified yes, but alien, no.”
