I am wondering if someone ever seen a UFO from an Airplane?
Some pilots report seeing some strange objects during their flight.

If we told you, you would think we are freaks.

Well UFO means unidentified flying objects.

I have been in a plane, flying over other planes or another one would be going by the other way so fast I couldn't identify it, does that count?

Yes off course, anything that you cannot identify!

I saw Mercury during a dusk take-off from LAS a few years back. It was beautiful and relatively high above the horizon.

Funny.

Just reading this reminds me of a time when I, for a few moments, thought I saw one. But I had forgotten about it completely, so I guess I later figured out what it really was. At the moment I don't even remember what sight triggered that thought... Kinda embarrassing to be nuts!  Big grin

I was flying my first solo cross country from OXC (Connecticut) to WST (Rhode Island) and saw some weird blurry set of lights coming from the south as I was flying east. It was about 7:30 at night with 8 miles visibility with heavy haze so the lights became unintelligibly scrambled. Luckily I was on Flight Following with Hartford approach and they identified the plane as a "big Gulfstream" as it was going into GON (Groton/ New London).

Most of the UFOs seen by pilots turn out to be other planes, but its amazing how haze or rain or clouds can obscure an airplane.

Oh, yes....all the time...once a little gremlin landed on the wing in mid-flight and started playing with the spoilers and flaps. Hey, it was better entertainment than the movie. I'm flying tomorrow to BOS, so I'll be on the lookout once more.

I saw a few flying saucers, too....

Of course, my "respect rating" of 9 just went to negative infinity, but that's OK...

Saw something I didn't recognise last year. A few seconds later it turned out to be a MyTravel A320  Smile/happy/getting dizzy


I wish I were flying

Yes.

It was on an America West A320 between Reno and Vegas.

It was this orange ball looking thing that kept hanging off the right wingtip. At first I thought it was the lights from a parking lot but as we got further away from Reno it stayed there.

Lost it when we got over Vegas....


Been spooked about flying on any Airbus since then.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
