Without making a decision either way on what I think about this sighting, I'd like to throw some fuel in the fire.
I used to live in Nashville, and got my PPL ticket training out of John Tune in the western part of town. During my training I had two literal UFO
encounters, although neither one included a visual sighting. My instructor was onboard for both.
The first was just east of Tune, in the class C airspace. Nashville approach gave me a call to be on the lookout for an unannounced aircraft directly
beneath me, moving east at a speed far too fast for an RC plane. We were fairly low and I remember thinking it was rather pointless to try and scud
run under the radar as BNA approach was always friendly and accomodating. Approach was miffed and kept calling me to see if I had a visual ansd a
tail number but I never saw anything.
The second encounter was a few miles west of Tune, precipitated by a rather unpleasant alarm screechina from the collision avoidance system. After
releasing a hypothetical load into my pants, I held course until the alarm was silent for a while, made a clearing turn, and then a tight orbit to see
what was out there.. Again, no joy.
To be fair, it isn't always easy to pick out traffic, especially against the backdrop of the ground, but since we are talking about UFOs in my old
neighborhood I figured I might pitch in. Enjoy Nashville, OP....I do miss it.
