I was stationed at Yokota AFB and and somewhere in the first couple days of the new year we came to catch a C-5 and two 141s when they were buzzed by a white light. when they tried to land the light flashed before them and stopped them from Landing.

the f 86s were sent out of a near by Japanese air base.

We got on a parked aircraft and listened on the radios. the aircraft werer not able to land and were sent to a marine airbase further south. they came in the next morning.

It would be better to tell this to someone since I'm not much of a writer. this was Jan 1973 the first few days
