Just another example of the stigma of reporting a ufo that still exists, especially in the area of Pilots/Military personnel.
I was an air traffic controller at Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) from 1973 through 1976 and saw numerous UFO’s, but knew it was a waste to report them. I had no desire to go to the base hospital and enter into a conversation as to whether I loved my mother.
The very next day I was being question by a special investigation team as to what I had seen. I was told later it was seen by the Mountain Home AFB tower personnel as well as Boise airport tower and all radar equipment. I was questioned several more times and then was told I was not to mention it anymore, that it was a SR-71 Blackbird and was a secret takeoff. (It sounded like a cover story to me.) I have seen an SR-71 take off and it does not fly as fast as that object did, nor does it hover. I have never read nor heard any more of this incident since it happened. I would be interested if any other information can be found out about this incident.
