I talked to a collection of people from the Ulster area who would
be the ones to have their eyes to the skies, but not one
personally had seen or heard the reported recent activity. Some
remembered however personally seeing the activity from a decade
ago that the Woodstock paper mentioned and speculated were
connected to the bombings in Serbia and Bosnia.

Another odd first-person account I heard was from a resident in
Pine Bush on one of the farming roads who walked out of his house
two Sunday afternoons ago to find a military-style jet literally
hovering uncomfortably close to his house.  As it swiveled to fly
off he was able to get a number of cell phone pictures, which he
had with him. Said the noise was considerable. He didn't offer
any speculation as to what the aircraft was doing, but he was
wondering if anybody else had also witnessed it.
