chemcrap attack on sylph
- This happened a couple of months back but i decided to put this on
What happened was that a rainstorm was coming up fast on me while i
was several miles from home so i headed back to beat the storm.
By the time i got back the storm was closing in with the wind getting
strong. I went up to a rooftop vantage point with my camera and
witnessed the following amazing incident.
I immediatly saw a sylph in a swanlike form with outstretched wings
facing directly into the oncoming storm. In spite of the winds the
sylph was stationary and remained so for nearly an hour.
I put up my hand to stop the rainstorm from going any further which
resulted in the winds dying down within seconds and the rainclouds
I live near to the former Clark Airbase here in the Philippines and
what i saw was a boeing jet painted light grey with no markings flying
low just after takeoff, as i watched with my back to the sylph the jet
did a hard turn in toward me and the sylph and then appeared to be
descending so i gave him "the finger" and he did another hard turn
back to the original course.
THe plane then went round in a wide circle coming up behind and a bit
above the sylph and turned on the chemcrap spray turning off again
when past the sylph then went back to the airfield. 15 mins later he
went around again and did a second spray on the sylph which then
started to finally break up behind its 'neck'. I made photos of this,
