Shape of Objects: Plane shaped.

Full Description of Event/Sighting: My husband and I were driving back from shopping in Newton, to our home in rural Kansas. There was a small aircraft directly in front of us, flying west as we were driving east. It was very low, and moving at a very slow rate of speed, almost as if coming in for a landing right there on the road. I was driving, and moved closer to the windshield, because I was concerned about how low the aircraft was. My husband was also watching it closely.

He noticed that the wings were "boxy" at the ends. It looked, honestly, like a prop plane (propeller and all)...which is not uncommon in our area with crop dusting. My driver's side window was open, the radio down very low, and yet there was no noise from the "plane" at all. As we drove underneath it, there was still no noise, and I kept looking out my side and rear view mirrors, watching to see if it was starting to gain any altitude at all, or if it was still so very low.

My husband was looking out his side mirror as well, and when neither of us could see it with the mirrors, he turned around in his seat to look out the back windows. He told me it wasn't there, so we pulled over onto the side of the road to see where it had gone. Both of us got out of the car to look, but it had vanished. There are no trees in the area we were in, no hills, nothing to impede our view anywhere. It was simply gone. We looked higher up, further out, yet there was still nothing.

The craft was so low when we saw it that we could see windows in the front of it, but again, never heard anything whatsoever. We have racked our brains trying to come up with logical conclusions to this, but for an aircraft flying that low, and that slow...for it to have suddenly flew fast enough for us to miss seeing it behind us, it would have made noise. We both grew up in close proximity to an airforce base as children, and know that first hand.

In addition, we are able to hear the sound of prop planes all the time, even when they fly over at higher altitudes than what this "plane" was. We simply do not have a rational explanation for what we saw and then didn't see.

I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing you're looking for or not. I've been looking online to try to find some kind of explanation for what we experienced and found your site. Any information that you might be able to share with us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
