After Nearly 40 Years Marine Pilot Talks About UFO Encounter
By Lindsay Ruebens

After nearly four decades of keeping mum about a close encounter
with a UFO over Pensacola, a retired Marine Corps pilot is
telling his story in a newly released book.

On the night of Feb. 6, 1975, then Marine Reserve Squadron Capt.
Larry Jividen was piloting a T-39D Sabreliner combat trainer and
utility aircraft with a crew of five aboard.

The two-hour flight, which began around sunset, took off and
landed at Pensacola Naval Air Station. As the Sabreliner was
returning from the training mission,

Jividen said noticed the aircraft was being paced by a circular
red light.

He radioed in to Pensacola Approach Control to ask what the
traffic was, but they didn’t see anything on the radar besides
the Sabreliner.

Jividen said that he and the five others all saw, from a
distance, a round solid object in the sky at about their 1-
o’clock position.

He said the UFO didn’t act like any kind of military or civilian

"On the radio, every time the guy would push the mic button,
you’d hear people in the background chattering about it,”
Jividen said. "They were very concerned and excited that they
couldn’t see it on their radar, and they wanted to know what we
were seeing."
