Subject: A 'Squadron' Of UFOs Over Turkey 

"A Squadron Of UFOs." 4 Pilots of 4 planes saw them.

The pilots of four (One foreign, 3 Turkish) planes reported to
flight safety departments that they had encountered a "squadron"
of UFOs on November 1st over Afyon.

It is stated the 'squadron' of 10-15 UFOs had later been seen
over Antalya and Izmir Adnan Menderes Airports.

As big as a Boeing-747

The objects were observed at 05.30 AM, at 22-36 thousand feet,
between Afyon and Yalova. The pilot of the plane which was the
closest to the UFO squadron, Ercan Eken said, "Approximetely 10-
15 small objects (but when you calculate the distance, as big as
Boeing-747) were flying within, 1-2 miles of each other."

Pilots Say The Things They Saw Were UFOs

4 Pilots claimed that they saw 10-15 shiny objects at the same
time, and they claimed these were UFOs. This claim caused
 arguements. Captain Pilot Necmi Ekinci, the chairman of The
Turkish Airline Pilots Association (TALPA) said "Our friends are
confident people. We trust the information given by them."

The pilots said that they were sure the objects they saw did not
belong to earth, although they don't believe it so far. They

Vedat Gurbuz (Captain Pilot): On the morning of November 1st, we
were moving ahead to our plane at 05.40 - 05.45, in Yzmir Adnan
Menderes Airport. We saw 4-5 objects on the direction to Afyon,
in the sky. They were leaving traces 10-15 times bigger than a
plane's behind them. Going forward and down at 7-8 times faster
than a plane.

Yylmaz Atly (Captain Pilot): On the morning of On the morning of
November 1st, we set out for Germany form Antalya, around 05.00
in the morning. Around Afyon, we saw a very bright light in the
top-left quadrant. The light was getting brighter and closer.
Than it flew at us. We were seeing it but it wasn't on the
radar. Then it divided into 10-15 units and disappeared on the
right-bottom corner.

Sinan Yylmaz (Pilot): We had started out for Salzburg from
Antalya. At the 15 miles ahead, northwest of Afyon, we saw a
very bright light on the north. Stable yellow and white lights
continued flying to east. There were at least 10-15 traces. It
lasted for 40-45 seconds. Then this bright light divided into
10-15 lights, they flew at the same level and disappeared on the
right. I didn't belie in such things, but it was impossible to
not to believe.

Close examination and pictures upcoming.....
