The Bigelow Aerospace Group has been taken in charge from the FAA to receive UFOs reports from the civil pilots and the air traffic controllers. Why? www.faa.gov...
That's a great question, Arken. I'd like to know what Bigelow does with the reports it receives. Any idea? Also, thanks for linking to that FAA document:
I wonder if the policy to outsource reports to a private company applies to sightings by FAA personnel.
Tell me this is a joke.....please.
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 administrative standpoint.

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.
"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 out!"
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 trouble."
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.)
"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".
Flight Captain Jorge Polanco
