Question I can't identify this??

Good Day folks!!! I bought this at an estate sale and I know its an Orchid but I can't seem to identify what type it is. Of course it did come with a nice identification card on how to care for it or the type it is. It has 3 stems coming out for flowers and the one root is like 2 feet long!!! Any input as to what I now have in my possession will be great!!!!

With 'striping' in leaves, it could be a Rhynchostylis gigantea, or possibly a hybrid with Rhy. gigantea as a parent.

If leaves are thick and fleshy, it is likely the species. If leaves are more Vanda like, it is a hybrid.

From second look at photos:
The thickness of the root supports the Rhy. gigantea guess.
The flower spike does not look like Rhy. gigantea. Possibly a primary hybrid with Aerides on the other side.

Agreeing with Fairorchids. Probably a Rhynchostylis hybrid. When it flowers it will be easier to try to get more specific.
