Keep in mind, the controllers are FAA employees.
and your point is what exactly? that we would intentionally lie about a sighting simply because faa management, an entity that has spent the last two
years reducing our salaries and staffing levels at all facilities nationwide so that we have to work longer with less pay says to? whatever. if
these guys and gals saw it, they would go public.
furthermore, you guys are giving the faa management way
too much credit here. they cant and dont think outside the box. they stick to the
straight and narrow. they were asked an opinion of what happened, so they came up with a mainstream science answer: a weather phenomenon. and i
guarantee you they thought about that answer for all of about 15 seconds. the faa simply does not involve itself in ufo reports anymore. in fact, a
buddy of mine was working a radar sector up northwest of philly not too long ago, and had reports from several pilots of some kind of craft flying at
FL260 (26,000ft), and everybody
above FL180 is supposed to be talking to air traffic. several aircraft reported seeing it visually, but there
was nothing on radar. he reported it to management, who basically said "we dont care." now, this is right around some of the most sensitive
installations in the country, and management doesnt care about an anomalous object at FL260, in airspace in which everyone is supposed to be talking
seriously, the faa doesnt care anymore. now why that is, i dont know for certain, but trust me.....they could care less about trying to cover
anything up. they just simply dont deal with the ufo phenomenon. period.
