Vancouver, B.C. - Looked Like A Big Paper Airplane

Date: June 19, 2004
Time: Approx: 10:30 a.m.

Good afternoon Brian, had to run into Vancouver this morning to get something and approx: 10:30 am. my wife and I had just cleared the Alex Fraser Bridge and were heading west across the Richmond bypass. I was just casually watching the planes as they made their approach to YVR, 26R. I was the passenger so could just relax and enjoy the ride. I noticed what I first thought was a small plane just to the south of the approach and about half a mile ahead of us. It was heading west also, but to my surprise we were rapidly overtaking it. I pointed it out to my wife but she insisted it was just a plane and I pointed out I don't think so it doesn't have any wings. The road curved and that put it on the drivers side of the van. by this time it was only about a 1/4 mile or less away. We were only doing about 100 klicks but rapidly overtook and passed it. I lost sight of it due to the tinting on our back windows and the angle. We would have been at approx:. No. 7 Rd. when we passed it. Estimated speed approx:. 30 klicks, appeared to be small perhaps 20 ft. in length, was well below the glide path, estimated height under 1000 ft., no engines or noise that I could detect. Appeared to be white on top and darker on the sides and bottom but that could just be shadow. From some angles it just looked like a big paper airplane. Attached is a sketch to give you a rough idea what it looked like. For once I had a witness besides myself, tho to my wife anything that flies and dosn't have feathers or flap its wings, then its a plane. Had it insight for approx. two minutes.

Thank you to the witness for the report and graphic.
