Was the Stephenville UFO an F-16?

It took the government more than a week to address the Stephenville UFO sightings, but the Air Force claims the lights people saw in the sky were nothing more than one of their aircraft.

According to the New York Times, the Air Force is now saying the spacecraft the people of Stephenville saw were 10 F-16 fighter jets doing routine training maneuvers over the city.

Of course, a lot of people aren’t buying the explanation. First of all, the Air Force changed their story more than a week later when they said there were no aircraft scheduled to fly over Stephenville that night. And secondly, many of the witnesses claimed the aircraft flew much closer to the ground.
