Three enormous flying discs, computed to be about 1,000 feet in diameter, paced a U.S. Airliner in mid-February, between Alaska and Japan.
"The UFOs paced the aircraft for about 30 minutes," states the flying officer's report. "When they departed they climbed straight out at a high angle. The Flying Tiger [crew] tracked the [climb out] speed at 1200 knots." (about 1380 m.p.h.)
During the 30-minute observation, the military navigator made a careful check on the UFOs' size. Extending his hands to arm's length, he made an oval with his fingers, enclosing one of the glowing red objects. The longer dimension, between his fingers, was about 2-1/2 inches. Using the five mile range figure, the captain determined the actual length to be approximately 1,000 feet. Even with a liberal allowance for error, the UFOs still must have been at least 700 feet long and 500 feet wide.
One of the pilots told the military navigator that "they often see UFOs on the Alaskan run."
