Though I have not heard of UA officially issuing a 'zip it'
policy with regard to the November incident, I do believe
concerns of just such are quite valid. A corporation need not
act in an 'official' manner in order to enforce it's will upon
employees, i.e., 'Bad things happen to pilots who see things...'

In other cases pilots who witnessed a UFO have claimed subtle
pressure to deny their sighting, often with veiled threats to
the security of their employment.

One must also take into account 'the ridicule factor', and fear
of falling victim to it, especially if such witnesses believe
that authorities are uninterested or hostile to the subject.
