That being said, I have been around a ton of pilots, cops, engineers and even a couple astronauts that...to be blunt....are no more competent observing things like this than you or I...rather, I bet most of us on this board are more astute when it comes to these things than they would have been.
ITF, I'm not questioning your sincerity but could you actualy list some of these UFO incidents you find truly puzzling and explain why you think the UFO subject deserves serious scientific scrutiny.
Stewardess Sees It Too
Almost instantly, as the big plane turned westward, the captain saw “this bright light hovering over Schenectady.” At first, he said, he thought it was another plane.
“We started to try to by-pass it and I remarked to my first officer, William Neff: “Oh, that’s an awfully bright light!” The stewardess, Miss Phyllis Reynolds of Eggertsville, came into the cockpit and she too saw the light.
“Suddenly, as we came abreast of it,” Capt. Ryan said, “it put on a burst of tremendous speed and darted off to the west.” He said his plane was flying at about 240 miles per hour and estimated the object then was traveling “about 600 or 900 miles per hour.”
He said he could not judge the size of the object. Capt. Ryan explained that “the light was so bright you wouldn’t want to look at it.” He added that the object seemed at times to change color from “a very bright white to an orange color” especially when it passed over cities or towns.
