To be serious...

My argument would be that a pilot on the scene is better able
to sift the stone grindings out of the flour because he or she
has a pretty good idea of what's flying, how it flies, what the
technology is for more exotic aircraft and what our engineering
is capable of.

If the pilot is not on the scene but makes a pronouncement which
doesn't fit the parameters of the event then he or she should
not offer up the mundane which does not fit.

Any pilot I've interviewed or I just happened to be a friend of,
have made the same observation about their own personal
sighting; an up close and personal event. It deeply disturbed
them with reactions far beyond what one would expect from just
some mundane episode.

The reactions ranged from being nauseated  - sick-fear as one
put it - dread, to bothered about it for a few days to haven't
stopped thinking about it at least once daily for the last
twenty five years.

Each of these are solid looking craft quite close to their own,
not lights or space junk re-entry or meteors.

One RCAF pilot could provide me with greater detail about his
encounter than he could about the birth of his daughter 10 years
