Has anyone seen something like this ? I have. I saw what looked like a plane with a disc shaped object on top of it. I have only seen that twice in my life, recently and when I was a kid. I'm not saying it was definitely a UFO but that's the only explanation I have.

Hmm that definitely seems consistent with what I saw. I didn't know about AWAC so my mind just thought UFO. it does look like a UFO on top of a plane to someone who wouldn't know what it was.

Yeah, there are a lot of variations too. Do a google image search for AWAC and you'll see. I bet that's what you saw.

Classic example of humans being bad at indentifying things in the sky. Thats why UFO sightings & witness testimonies are unreliable.

Humans claim UFOs, its %100 of time down to earth interms of explaination

So dont blame Skeptics people because theres a reason they are skeptical

yup the awacs. I've lived around Tinker AFB most of my life and see tons of those things flying around daily. Its the base where awacs are repaired.

Allow me. The OP made a sincere and legitimate query and expressed uncertainty and was seeking input:

When a reasonable explanation by multiple members was presented OP acquiesced and agreed.

Another poster made a rather harsh and unnecessary generalization regarding OP in a condescending tone and another community minded member replied in kind.

Does that clear things up for you?

My reply was Harsh?

I stated this was an example of UFO sightings being misinterpreted when theres plausible explanations.

Humans make mistakes & believers point to witness testimonies as if thats concrete evidence, They dont understand why witness saying something is not evidence. That was the message I was trying to get across.

I grew up on Navy bases. I spent a decade working in defence diplomacy myself just recently. I can state quite categorically that I have seen what appear to be UFOs as well as actual UFOs. Both exist. But as a vast amount of defence-related materials and equipment at unavailable to the public, it is not their fault that they misidentify these things. Obviously, AWACs are not some of those because they are freely seen and acknowledged, but there are a lot of things that aren't. I suggest that the skeptics come forth with direct identification and breakdowns of specific markers for that identification when they debunk, rather than the usual arrogantly mocking attitiude they normally take.

UFOs is unidentified flying objects. You saw something YOU couldnt identify that doesnt mean others cant.

Its not their fault & I havent said that. I said people misinterpret things all the time. And witness testimonies are not evidence.

I suggest believers come fourth with solid evidence & do some sort of research before they make claims to the public

Really very fun.That is so not a Ufo and not a hoax either, can only be a radar system.

Yes, but if believers come fourth, who is going to come first, second and third?

James, I think you are being a tad pedantic on this, ok its not the best worded question but that clearly what it is. He's asking if people know what he saw was and because he does not recognise it he presumes its a ufo.

Which technically it is TO HIM...

This wasn't an attempt to fool people it was a call for help and then turned into a bit of a cheap shot at ufo believers. Do people miss identify things, of course they do but this isn't a hard and fast rule for this post.

Do you suggest that? Solid evidence, eh? What would that be exactly?

I know alien craft when I see it. I don't need anyone to confirm it nor to "debunk" it. I trust my powers of observation. I know the details of my sightings. You don't. You have no grounds to doubt my comments.

I think you might be trying too hard there, son. Just sit back and let the nice people here talk, okay?

James' point was, we shouldn't trust our powers of observation. Even the camera can lie sometimes. If I edited this video to cut off the ending, what would we see?

CAUTION: to all UFO videographers
www.youtube.com...

And just because our powers of observation are suspect, doesn't mean we aren't right sometimes. The OP's description of the AWACs is pretty spot on, that's what it looks like to me too, even though I know what it is.
