Source: Salon.Com http://www.salon.com/2012/01/19/who_needs_ufos/singleton/ Thursday, Jan 19, 2012 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. [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
