Ask The Pilot

Who Needs UFOs?
By Patrick Smith

There are plenty of other spectacular views from the cockpit
window, like the northern lights or shooting stars


As pilots are sitting up there for hours, often late at night,
or above the cloud level, have you ever seen anything really
weird or fantastic?


Weird or fantastic? I know what you're thinking. I know what
you're thinking and the answer is no.

A reader once asked me about a supposed "tacit agreement"
between pilots in which we will not openly discuss UFO sightings
out of fear of embarrassment and, as the reader put it,
"possible career suicide." I had to laugh at the notion of there
being a tacit agreement among pilots over anything, let alone
UFO sightings. And although plenty of things in aviation are
tantamount to "career suicide," withholding information about
UFOs isn't one of them.

For the record, I have never met a pilot who claims to have had
a UFO sighting. Honestly, the topic is one that almost never
comes up, even during those long, dark flights across the ocean.
Musings about the vastness of the universe are one thing, but I
cannot recall ever having had a conversation with another pilot
about UFOs specifically. Neither have I ever seen the topic
discussed in any industry journal or trade publication.
