Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: Aircraft Close Encounters With Bogeys Studied For 50 Years

When it comes to Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, the subject is met by the irritating shrill of the “Noisy Negativists” screaming, “where’s the proof”?, “where’s the evidence”?, “how come we don’t have a piece of a flying saucer”? Good, straight, to the point questions actually. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being skeptical. Questioning everything is a good thing, as long as one excludes their emotions, beliefs and preconceived notion’s of the question at hand and start from the beginning, with a clean slate. Do the research first, then you can come to your own conclusions.

Now unlike these so-called UFO experts who’ve never witnessed the phenomenon themselves, yet seem to have all the answers, I’m not going to blindly propose UAPs are extraterrestrial spacecraft piloted by aliens visiting us earthlings from other stars. Even after all these decades of reminiscing, reliving my own experience, reading, researching and watching countless documentaries, I still don’t know what this “Enormous Ferris Wheel” in the sky was or what it represents. Actually, I think the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis is the least likely explanation (Read More Here). I surmise it’s something far more profound and unexpected. But what the hell do I know anyway. I’m just Joe Citizen who witnessed something like out of a Science Fiction movie that was totally astonishing.

So let’s go back to the question, where’s the evidence? Well I hate to rain on the Nay Sayers parade, but the evidence is there…it’s everywhere! Cave drawings from the dawn of Man, in The Bible, even ancient religious paintings, if one were to take the time and look for it. In modern times, I’m talking about physical trace evidence like broken tree branches, unusually high radiation in soil samples, circular patterns and impressions on the ground at landing sites. I’m talking about the electromagnetic disruptions and interference in cities, automobiles and aircraft. I’m talking about the countless photographs and videos taken by educated professionals in various high-ranking positions and so on and so on.

To me, the most impressive, irrefutable evidence of UAPs are found in cases involving multiple witnesses on the ground and in the air simultaneously, by civilians, the police, military personal etc., accompanied with radar targets painted from the ground in conjunction with airborne radar. I mean really, what more evidence do we need? Criminals in a court of law have been convicted on far less circumstantial evidence!

I found a reputable site called NARCAP (National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena) run by Dr. Richard F. Haines . The research organization specialize in both current and historical UAP incidents and observations. They are specifically interested in those cases involving concerns for aviation safety.

Dr. Richard F. Haines has compiled a catalogue of over 3400 aviation related UAP cases. He has conducted a comprehensive review of UAP reports by U.S. air traffic controllers and pilots from the past 50 years. A result of this effort is Richard’s paper “Aviation Safety in America-A Previously Neglected Factor”. It contains analyses of over one hundred reports of UAP involved in near misses, close pacing, disrupted avionics, and collisions. These events either occurred to US aviation professionals on domestic or foreign flights, or foreign aircrews operating in US airspace.

I’m not an author or a writer, just a one finger typer therefore I’ve listed a very brief example of some fascinating cases which I hope will be of value to some. If you’re interested and are willing to take the time, just Google these cases for a more detailed reports because it would take me forever to write it.
Yup, gotta do the research!

Multiple Pilots Witness Large Object Near Guernsey, United Kingdom

April, 23, 2007 – Guernsey, United Kingdom

Two experienced airline pilots on separate flights saw something up to a mile wide off the coast of Alderney on Monday afternoon. ‘It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area. It was 2,000 ft. up and stationary,’ one of the pilots said. “At first, I thought it was the size of a 737. But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide.”

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: Beware The “Trickster” Radar Bogeys

When it comes to Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, the subject is met by the irritating shrill of the “Noisy Negativists” screaming, “where’s the proof”?, “where’s the evidence”?, “how come we don’t have a piece of a flying saucer”? Good, straight, to the point questions actually. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being skeptical. Questioning everything is a good thing, as long as one excludes their emotions, beliefs and preconceived notion’s of the question at hand and start from the beginning, with a clean slate. Do the research first, then you can come to your own conclusions.

I’m very fortunate regarding this matter because I, along with millions of other folks around the globe, had my own sighting (Read All About It Here), and I’m not at war with myself debating UAP reality. I know the enigma is real because I, along with probably hundreds of others in Mississauga, circa 1980, saw it with our own eyes. It was as real as a passing train. As real as an airliner flying overhead. Therefore I don’t need to look for evidence of UAP reality, my eyes made up my mind up for me already. But for others out there, scientists and everyday folks alike, finding evidence of this phenomenon is understandably paramount. The question is, what are we dealing with here? What is this UAP business all about?

Now unlike these so-called UFO experts who’ve never witnessed the phenomenon themselves, yet seem to have all the answers, I’m not going to blindly propose UAPs are extraterrestrial spacecraft piloted by aliens visiting us earthlings from other stars. Even after all these decades of reminiscing, reliving the experience, reading, researching and watching countless documentaries, I still don’t know what this “Enormous Ferris Wheel” in the sky was or what it represents.

The object reacted to the sweep of the plane’s radar. Pilots from the airliner saw two or three shadowy entities moving around inside the object.

Red Bluff Incident

August, 13, 1960 – Red Bluff, California, United States

California Highway Patrol Officers Charles A. Carson and Stanley Scott were on patrol when they sighted what they thought was an airliner about to crash. When the UAP had descended to about 100 or 200 feet altitude it suddenly reversed direction and climbed to 500 ft. Description: round or oblong surrounded by a glow (color not mentioned) and having definite red lights at each end. They continued to watch the UAP as it performed “unbelievable” aerial feats.

The RB-47 UAP Encounter

July, 17, 1957 – Gulf Coast Area, United States

An Air Force RB-47, equipped with electronic countermeasures (ECM) gear and manned by six officers, was followed by an unidentified object for a distance of well over 700 mi. and for a time period of 1.5 hr., as it flew from Mississippi, through Louisiana and Texas and into Oklahoma. The object was, at various times, seen visually by the cockpit crew as an intensely luminous light, followed by ground-radar and detected on ECM monitoring gear aboard the RB-47.

The ‘Sea Fury’ Incident

August, 31, 1954 – Nowra, Australia

One of the most controversial radar visual reports of the fifties occurred on August 31st, 1954. The story leaked out in December, 1954, and made front page headlines. The official navy file on the event remained classified until the Directorate of Naval Intelligence released a copy upon my request in 1982. During his 1973 visit to Australia, Dr. Hynek was able to interview the pilot involved in this famous incident.

The Kinross Air Force Base Incident (Jet Disappears While Chasing UAP)

November, 23, 1953 – Lake Superior, Michigan, United States

On the evening of 23 November 1953, an Air Force radar controller became alerted to an “unidentified target” over Lake Superior, and an F-89C Scorpion jet was scrambled from Kinross AFB. Radar controllers watched as the F-89 closed in on the UAP, and then sat stunned in amazement as the two blips merged on the screen, and the UAP left. The F-89 and it’s two man crew, pilot Felix Moncla and radar operator Robert Wilson, were never found, even after a thorough search of the area.

The Haneda AFB Case, Japan, 1952

August, 5, 1952 – Haneda US Air Force Base , Near Tokyo, Japan, Japan

This is one of the cases that the Colorado Project has considered “explained” – a star and an anomalous radar propagation. Not so. On the contrary, as a careful study of the records shows, it is a very interesting case of anomalous flying objects in the sky who fly under intelligent control and cannot be of human origin.

F-86 Intercepts And Shoots At Saucer-Shaped UAP

1952 – United States

In the summer of 1952 a United States Air Force F-86 jet interceptor shot at a flying saucer. This fact, like so many others that make up the full flying saucer story has never before been told… The object was definitely round and flat saucer shaped. The pilot described it as being “like a doughnut without a hole.”
