Although all pilots working today in American airspace, are no doubt very qualified and expirienced enough to be able to figure out what to do upon
encountering an unidentified flying object (be it potential military UAV, alien craft, borg drone , whatever the hell it might be), I do find it
somewhat concerning that the entire section has now been removed from the training manuals given to air force personel.
There will now be a grey area, and military personel , as a general rule, do not deal well with grey areas. They are told how to pass a movement in
the morning, in what manner to brush thier teeth, hell, they even have the mechanics of putting one foot in front of the other laboriously gone over,
to ensure there are no screw ups when that person is out on active duty.
The moment you put a questionable, or confusing situation in front of that person, you have to hope that thier training , or some element there of,
can handle it, because underneath the training, everyone has a basic set of responses to stimuli. Fight, or flight. The advice given in that manual,
about taking detailed recordings of everything to maximise the possibility of identifying the object, is good advice, because it keeps the pilot
focused when in a situation that potentially, could drag a person right the hell out of their comfort zone, and into that part of the mind which
consists of a chill up the spine, and occasionaly a lack of reasoned response.
