Hi List

I have a couple of new reports to type up, just received
February 16, 2004. But below are two interesting pilot reports I
received today. Enjoy.

Pilot Sighting Reports

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. 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

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
