A lot of UFO sightings can be explained fairly easily-like this one. I'll give you the answer to a few more if you'd care to continue reading.
A few years ago I was an additional crew member on B-52G's on numerous occasions. More than once was I party to an incident like this.
We were flying a low level route over Eastern Colorado on a very dark moonless night at about 800' AGL, at about 360Kts IAS. The pilot spotted a
vehicle (on the FLIR) out on the horizon traveling more or less perpendicular to our course and for the sheer fun of it he pushed the nose down. I
don't know how low we got but the terrain warning light was on, which is supposed to occur at 200'. Anyway, we passed directly over this poor
Bas+ard with all eight engines at the firewall-I'll wager the guy(?) wet himself when we went overhead.
Imagine, it would be a nice, dark, peaceful night in a desolate part of east Co., when suddenly out of nowhere, an aircraft with a 200' wingspan,
completely blacked out appears overhead screaming at 400+ mph, and thundering by at 125DB+.
Come to think of it I don't know what the EWO (electronic warfare officer) was doing behind me, but I'll bet he could do some jamming that would
appear for all the world to be like your typical Sci Fi movie depiction of a UFO encounter. (Electrical system failures, St Elmo's fire, radio going
out, the whole works)
I wonder how many other UFO reports are related to stunts like this one! Looking back on it I guess it wasn't all that funny----well, YEAH, I
SUPPOSE IT WAS, FUNNY AS HELL!
