Well, the southwest is certainly an area where advanced test planes and drones are flown, so it is not surprising to hear from commercial pilots that
they consider that it is some sort of hot spot.
My grandfather was a pilot and told me foo fighter stories when I was a kid. He later went on to be a test pilot in that very same "UFO Hotpot"
somewhere in the southwest. Wish he had some of those stories to tell me, but I only saw him once during that time and it was at an airport
layover..to brief for anything but hugs and arm punches. He died in a test flight not long after that.
The only thing that makes me hesitate about most pilot's acknowledgment that they see UFOS, is I don't believe that their observation powers are
near as extraordinary as us regular folks like to superimpose on them. Speed, size, distance...all things are very difficult to remotely guess at
(even for an average pilot.....who contrary to popular belief amoung the UFO community do not have superhuman observational powers....and never come
to work drunk, lol). I fly all the time for work. Often it is at night. Depending on how many of us are going, I usually sit in the copilot seat. Now,
I am far from being a pilot, but I have logged many hours at night observing from the cabin and such. While I have seen a couple of (what I would
consider) unusual lights, I would hard pressed to even speak of them due to the lack of sighting detail that I could give. If pressed, I'm sure I
would make something up to give my nighttime light observation some air of authenticity, but it still wouldn't amount to anything.
And I'm still trying to figure out why UFOs always fly around at night in order to avoid visual detection then forget they have their driving lights
I would keep an eye out for aerospace engineers and such. Get some "liquid smoke" in them and they could tell you some amazing things, trust me.
