Hello List,

I was watching the rather slow UFOs Hard Evidence - Volume 5
video when Graham Birdsal (I think) buttonholed Dr Richard
Haines in the USA during a conference interval, and Dr Haines
made two comments of interest.

The first was from around 23 mins 46 secs in, or at:


when he said that by interviewing flight-crews he'd arrived at a
figure of about 15% to 20% of them having seen 'something
strange' during their flying hours.

Now that is pretty close to the "about 12% of professional
astronomers" who reported strange sightings to Dr. J Allen Hynek
in the early fifties (informally and on condition of anonymity -
with one or two more who said they wouldn't say under any

That's the first point: about one in five professionals who look
at the skies see strange things they can't account for.

Next, at around 32 mins in, Dr Haines tells the story of a small
plane flying north up the Atlantic coast of Florida (I think)
which had its VOR (a sort-of radio direction-finder) interfered
with, apparently by a UFO approaching from the east.

In order to do that the UFO would've had to somehow change the
phase of at least one incoming radio beacon signal (presumably
coming from  a site somewhere to the north-west of the
aircraft). And interestingly, the effect was to turn the aircaft
on a more easterly course - and towards the approaching UFO.

That's also interesting because it's similar to the case of an
airliner which had its gyro-compasses interfered with, apparently
by a UFO approaching from the port side; see about 7 mins 48 secs
into this video. or at:


Although the technical means in the second case seems to have
been inertial rather than electro-magnetic, the effect of the
interference was to force the airliner into a 20 degree bank to
port - and towards the UFO.

Given the amount and severity of gov't secrecy about UFOs, you
might speculate if there were pilots who didn't notice in time -
and never got back to tell their story.

If so, no wonder there's government secrecy.
