'Truth' Was Out There After All

An accidental discovery sheds new light on the mysterious
disappearance of a pilot in 1978, writes Miles Kemp.

Unlike a myriad other UFO sightings at the time, the claims of
20-year-old pilot Frederick Valentich could not easily be
dismissed as a hoax. Unlike others who said they had seen
strange lights or craft in the sky, Valentich was mid-way
through a detailed and recorded description of his sighting when
he disappeared forever over Bass Strait.

"It is not an aircraft it is..." an air-traffic control
transcript records Valentich as saying at 7.09 and 28 seconds on
the evening of 21 October 1978.

Valentich was part-way through a seven-minute conversation with
Melbourne air traffic control about the craft.

At 7.10pm and 20 seconds, Valentich said: "What I am doing right
now is orbiting and the thing is just orbiting on top of  me
also it has a green light and sort of metallic, it's all shiny
(on) the outside." A long metallic clanging sound marked the end
of the transmission and the beginning of a long battle to have
all records of the disappearance made public.
