Tucson International Airport radar picked up the aircraft at 12:15 a.m. Monday. Radar monitored the objects for about 90 min. The radar picked them up southwest of the city, near Ryan Field, and lost them as they flew northeasterly through Redington Pass. The controller reported that 15 groups of four to six objects each were monitored on the radar. the UFOs were travelling at about 250 knots, or 288 mph. The tower called the police pilot on duty and said that they had some targets but no transponders. The transponders are radar transceivers that automatically identify individual air craft for air traffic controllers. If you don't turn your transponder on, all it shows up as (on radar) is a blip. The pilot tried to follow the objects and did see some lights,but was unable to catch up with them. The pilot was up about 4,000 feet and they were up at 7,000 feet. The Air Force said d-m jets stop flying by 10:30 pm and knew of no other military flights in the area at 12:15 AM Monday. ------------------------------- ParaNet Ratings (1-5): Strangeness: 5 Probability: 5 Last page !scroll 5 Space/Astronomy SPA-1306 LOCATION: FT.

The three-man crew radioed air traffic controllers in Anchorage that a huge UFO was flying "in formation" with them and the Air Force briefly confirmed and object near the plane, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Paul Steucke. He said the FAA in Anchorage and Fairbanks did not pick up the object. The incident occurred Nov.17 but was not made public earlier. Flight 1628 had left Reykjavik, Iceland, flying over the North Pole to Tokyo with a stop in Anchorage. When it landed at Anchorage, FAA security manager Jim Derry interviewed the pilot, Co-pilot and flight engineer. When the report was made to the Air Route Traffic Control Center at 6:19 p.m., Steucke said controllers tried to find the object on radar but "were unable to comfirm a second target with our equipment." At 6:26 p.m. Steucke said the Air Force told the FAA it "saw a second target (object) 8 miles away (from the JAL jet) but they contacted us a mimute later and said they were no longer receiving any radar return (of a second object)." Steucke added, "At 6:32 the JAL pilot requested and received permission for a descent from 35,000 feet to 31,000." Air controllers asked if the lights were still there, and were told, "It is descending in formation." At 6:39 p.m.,20 minutes after the lights first reported, the JAL crew said it no longer saw the lights. At 6:45 p.m. Fairbanks controllers authrized a United Airlines northbound jet to make a 10 degree turn to better view the JAL plane and asked the United crew if it saw anything besides the Boeing 747. It did not. Nor did the JAL crew see the lights again. ------------------------------- ParaNet Ratings (1-5): Strangeness: 5 Probability: 5 Last page !scroll 10 Space/Astronomy SPA-1324 LOCATION: HARRISBURG, PA CASE TYPE: CE I DATE: 1ST WEEK OCTOBER, 1985 TIME: 0515 HOURS CFN#: 0326 DURATION: UNKNOWN WITNESSES: TWO SOURCE: UFO INFORMATION SERVICE ------------------------------- Witness got up around 4:15 - 5:15 a.m. to go to restroom and saw an object over her home that covered five other homes as well. The object was huge, pure white and had no lights. The object was the shape of a saucer and rotating. Even though the object was bright (brighter than any object she had ever seen) it did not hurt her eyes to look at it. She had no fear and wanted to run out of her home and stand underneath the object but felt paralyzed. The object did return and her 12 year old son was able to see it. Since the incident she has had visions which she did not experience prior to the sighting of the object. ------------------------------- ParaNet Ratings (1-5): Strangeness: 5 Probability: 3 Last page !scroll 11 SCROLL 11 is an invalid choice !
