If it was a conventional aircraft-and not a bird or bug- there
would have been a sonic boom. The photographer would likely have
been bleeding from the ears. The wake behind it would have been
terrific. But if it was your classic exotic [thought-to-be]
extraterrestrial craft there is no reason it would have to
behave as do our earthbound aircraft.

If memory serves the photographer was standing on the road
[facing west].

Incidentally, why was he taking pictures of the RR Crossing?
