Tried a couple searches for this case but I couldn't find anything, so here goes


This is little-known case, and not really that complex, but it was witnessed by a good number of people, credible witnesses it would seem. With those factors considered, I thought it deserved a mention here at ATS.

The sighting took place on October 17, 1976 at Akita Airport in Japan. Starting at 10:40 in the morning, a metallic golden disk was observed by air traffic controllers, pilots, and passengers in the area. Kenichi Waga, telecommunications officer in the control tower described the object this way: "It was disc-shaped, larger than a car, but smaller than an airplane."

Tazawa Takumi, an air traffic controller on duty said the UFO looked like "two plates placed together, the top one inverted." Takumi looked through binoculars and described this object:



These reports were substantiated by several others, including the account of Captain Masara Saito, a Toa Airlines Pilot. While preparing to take off, Saito saw a "strange looking disc-shaped object 5000 feet above the ground."

Eventually the disc flew away towards the sea.

Personally I believe this to be a legit encounter with an unknown craft. What do you guys think?

No one said that.

To answer your earlier question about their credibility try looking at this case: www.abovetopsecret.com...

The witness in the above case was grounded from flying simply for reporting a UFO. Would you make something up if your job would be put at risk because of it?

Besides, the object was witnessed by several people, all reporting the same thing at the same time.

He was reinstated to flying, but only after his superiors had been contacted by a NASA scientist who specialised in pilot/UFO encounters.

I don't normally jump on the "it's aliens" bandwagon, but in the case of JAL1628, I will say it, it was aliens
