Powered craft over Almaty, Kazakstan; pictures taken by pilots at 34,000 feet

On the 23rd of October, 2011, I was having breakfast with a good friend of mine in Anchorage, Alaska. The subject came up of whether or not we had ever seen anything that could be construed as a UFO. Collectively the both of us have been flying over 60 years.

The both of us flew full careers in the U.S. Navy and both of us have flown with the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, The Blue Angels.

My friend, when asked the question, said that he and his First Officer witnessed something flying over Almaty, Kazakstan. He was the Captain of a FEDEX MD-11 aircraft, flying between Paris and Hong Kong at an altitude of 34,000 feet. He and the First Officer witnessed the object together and was able to take several photographs of the object from the cockpit. Those photos will be e-mailed separately. He stated that the object was powered and moving at a speed twice that of any aircraft he had seen.
