When it comes to Air-Force pilots and UFOs, it is actually not uncommon to hear reports of pilots coming back from operations with reports of seeing UFOs and other unexplained phenomena, out there in the sky.
NOTHING IN MY TRAINING PREPARED ME FOR WHAT WE WERE WITNESSING
One can argue that flying through the air at speeds that require you to perform specialized breathing techniques may lead to seeing unreliable, however, a number of pilots that report similar sitings has to add some credence to the claims. Some of the different claims by Airforce members have been that the objects look like a transparent flying disc and a triangular craft with mysterious markings, or a triangular craft in a clearing in the woods with blue and yellow lights swirling around the exterior. There have been interviews given by prominent members of the government and air force such as Fife Symington, a former governor of Arizona and air force pilot who said “We want the US government to stop perpetuating the myth that all UFOs can be explained away in down-to-earth, conventional terms, “When he saw a UFO in 1997. Finally, this brings us to James Penniston, a retired US Air Force pilot who claims he saw and touched a UFO when he was in Woodbridge stationed on a British military base overseas. James said “Nothing in my training prepared me for what we were witnessing, “he saw an inexplicable triangular craft in a clearing in the woods with “blue and yellow lights swirling around the exterior”. The UFO was “warm to the touch and felt like metal” Penniston said. He goes on to further claim that one side of the craft had pictorial symbols and “the largest symbol was a triangle, which was centered in the middle of the others” . The most interesting part of James’ claim is that after 45 minutes the light from the object “began to intensify” and it then “shot off at an unbelievable speed” before 80 Air Force personnel he said. “In my logbook, I wrote speed: impossible.” The unfortunate thing about claims like these is you can never verify them and always have to take them at face value, we can only hope that in the future we will have a verifiable piece of evidence that a UFO has visited or a UFO that we could all touch one day.
