Location: Albany, NY
Duration:1/3 second (est.)
A commercial airline pilot (ATP rating) called to inquire whether any U. S. federal agency had contacted the National UFO Reporting Center to ask for further information about the FOX 23 video from October 20, 2002. (Please see NUFORC homepage.)
The pilot stated that the video looked authentic to him, and he expressed concern that no one was actively pursuing the issue. He stated that he found it upsetting that objects like those in the FOX video might be flying in the skies above our heads, and no one is telling pilots about it.
He also expressed his sense of disbelief that FOX is not pursuing the issue more aggressively. He suggested that it seems inappropriate that a news agency would have such dramatic video, and would not be playing the tape, and bringing the story to the American People in a more aggressive fashion that FOX has demonstrated in this case.
The pilot refused to leave his name, or reveal the airline he works for.
We at NUFORC could not agree more!!
No one at our FOX affiliate in Seattle (KCPQ) has returned our calls.
Also, the FBI office in Albany, NY, has failed to return our three telephone calls to their offices. We would like to know whether they are planning to issue a statement with the results of their analysis of the tape.
