- Hello Brian,
- The gentleman wishes to remain anonymous, which I always
respect. Please do not ask me for the fellows contact information as I
will not be giving it out. Also the last reports below, I also will be
keeping the personal information private. Thank you, Brian
- Here is a report on my sightings, in the air and on the
ground.You may use them as you wish.
- My first sighting happened in 1961, on a trip from Tampa,
Fla. to Atlanta, Ga. It was a night flight and we had leveled off at our
assigned altitude and were approximately 40 miles north of Tampa.We suddenly
observed a flight of four star-like objects heading south, high above us
and to the east, going very fast. They were in tandem and were surrounded
by a bluish-white haze or glow.We called on Miami Center frequency and
asked if anyone else was seeing these objects. Immediately, an Areo Commander
aircraft crew said, "Yes, we are over Vero Beach and we have them
in sight". Miami Center switched us over to Jacksonville Center at
this time. After our initial call into Jacksonville Center, we asked if
the controller had been getting any reports of UFOs. He replied that he
had numerous reports and that the Air Force had scrambled jet fighters
to attempt to catch them,but had failed to get close to them. He also mentioned
that there had been many sightings all along the east coast of the U.S.
from as far north as Richmond,Va. My estimate of their speed was something
over 2000 mph and their altitude above 35,000 ft. We observed them about
30-45 seconds. After completing the trip and driving home, I turned on
the radio to hear the latest news. The announcer said that according to
a U.S. Airforce report, the mysterious objects seen in the eastern and
southern states tonight, were meteors. I say, "Meteors, they were
NOT". I knew I had seen my first UFOs and what a thrill it was.
- My second sighting occurred in 1967 on the final leg
of a trip to St.Louis, Mo.and back to Atlanta, Ga., with a stop at Huntsville,
Ala. It was late afternoon, the sun had just gone down and the sky was
quite bright with good visibility in a cloudless sky. In the southwest
we noticed a very bright reddish-orange light that almost appeared like
Venus would in a darker sky, but not in a color that Venus presents. It
was just a short time later that we noticed the light was moving toward
us. As it got closer we could see that it would pass behind our aircraft.
Then, as our viewing angle changed, we could see that there were in fact,
two lights (objects) and their brilliance was nearly blinding, traveling
in tandem and the rearward object slightly to the left of the leader. Their
speeds were just fantastic! A guesstimate of 4000mph. Their altitudes
appeared to be in the 4000-6000ft. range and it was my belief that they
flew right over Redstone! They left no smoke trails or plasma trails and
simply disappeared after passing behind us. This sighting was the most
thrilling I've had (so far).
- Brian, I'll send you more sightings soon.
- I would really like to extend my deepest thanks to this
fellow for his reports.
- Take care

- SVC10 flight, direct London to Nairobi,
- Briefly my best sighting. Brian.. SVC10 flight, direct
London to Nairobi, 1971. Flying over France, approx 30000 feet, night,
above layer of alto-stratus cloud, whose tops were sitting about 10,000
feet below us. I saw out to the left, below us, 5 lighted, largish, (21
foot?) objects, in loose formation, orange/yellowish, not too bright, located
between us and the clouds, pacing us..As I was captain, turned the aircraft
this way and that, so all crew could see them. As suddenly as they had
appeared, they suddenly stopped and slowly sank through the clouds. causing
a lovely glow for several seconds...We made no effort to contact ATC..
- Thanks response, Brian, FYI we carried UFO report forms
in our operations flight boxes in the Super VC 10 aircraft in East African
Airways in 1971, my time...At that era, any mention of UFOs put u in the
'cookie' category, so we didn't bother to make them out. This was despite
the famous East African Airways DC3 sighting, well documented in many
books, (the years before I joined them), where the plane got permission
to leave the airway and fly once round Mt Kilimanjaro, to allow all passengers
and crew to view a 5 Kilometer long solid metal 'ship' sitting calmly
above the mountain on a crystal clear day. NOBODY had a camera on board.
- Best wishes
- Thank you to the pilot for the reports.
