It is true the FAA doesn't usually investigate UFO's..
A family friend who was chief controller for Tucson Int. Airport watched a disk craft put out landing gear, and land right at the end of the runway at
Bellingham Int Airport in Washington state in the early 70's..
He was told by superiors to just ignore it and to divert air traffic until the craft was gone, and of course, to not mention it to anyone.. The FAA
administrators never investigated this incident further, because they already knew what it was..(An alien craft) not homemade on earth.
Sorry for the delay in a response mate and I completely agree with you about there being something out there (also that it does a great job of
avoiding us ) -regarding the aviation saftey factor I don't know if you've heard it but Dr Haines gives a good interview
here about military/civilian pilot sightings and the 3400 actual unknown
reports he's collated, there's also a relevant presentation below which he gave to the French Air and Space Academy citing factors like E.M. effects
on aircraft systems and UAP causing unplanned collision avoidance manoeuvre.
U.A.P and Flight Safety: There is a Relationship
This presentation will document a number of encounters by air-crew with unidentified aerial phenomena that strongly suggest a flight safety
concern because of electro-magnetic effects on aircraft systems, a breakdown in cockpit coordination and communication, physical impeding of the
airplane's flight path, and/or causing the pilot to execute an abrupt and unplanned collision avoidance manoeuvre. Positive and achievable
recommendations are made regarding how to cope with these phenomena from a flight crew standpoint as well as official government policy and

That being said, for the past three years or so, I have asked everyone I work with if they have ever seen something "unexplained". I have heard of
three events of unexplained lights and two daytime sightings of silver spheres (which really got my attention). But as you've heard and read, I do
stand the chance of getting ridiculed for researching such a "strange" phenomena. So I reserve my questions to private one on one discussions usually
at FL 370 or above.
Sincerely hope you do keep asking although I can see how it may affect your professional reputation and even become a liability in the
advancement of your career - regarding commercial pilots being reluctant to report their experiences (probably due to those two factors) here are some
other statements from Ted Roe's study and it really does make a person wonder just how many UAP events go unreported.
"We didn't say anything. We figured nobody would believe us."
"Upon return to my domicile, JFK, I reported our sighting to the proper authorities. I was shortly visited by two federal investigators who evidently
thought I was hallucinating for one of them stated he had seen spaceships while fishing in Great South Bay and was quite obviously trying to prove
that I was a loony."
Captain, Pan Am (ret.)
"It must have been Huge! We were all due back at JFK about the same time two days later so I waited in the crew ready room to talk to them. None of
them wanted to talk! They were afraid management would take them off of flying status and have them tested for booze and drugs. The story never came
Flight Engineer, TWA (ret.)
"a group of lights in the air appeared at our 12o'clock position. I called departure control and asked them if they had any traffic in that area. When
they came back and said NO, what do you see, I said no, just checking. For at that time when a pilot reported seeing a UFO he was in a lot of
Captain, Ozark Airlines (ret.)
"I, and Flight crew saw something (in broad daylight) that did things that no known aircraft could do without killing any living thing inside. I will
only give sketchy details to protect the privacy of the rest of the crew. If you are interested, and all information (is) kept anonymous, contact me.
I will not present myself for public ridicule."
Captain, NW (ret.)
Also, don't know if you've looked into this case from Argentina in 1995 but it's certainly a pretty fascinating one and definitely involves the
aviation safety factor.
"The first impression was shock from people inside the plane -the lights of the object were well defined - there was an orange light on top of
it, green lights on the side and the solid part of the object was dark".
Sarcasm is "a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt", usually conveyed through irony or understatement. Most
authorities distinguish sarcasm from irony; however, others argue that sarcasm may or often does involve irony or employs ambivalence.
So is this your way of saying something was a HOAX? Posting definition of a word, that has nothing to do with the case, the accounts, the people
involved, or anything.
Such pseudos like you need to not post, I am all for objective skepticism but scoffing should be punishable.
