The first was from around 23 mins 46 secs in, or at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chh0hvgc_cc&t=23m46s 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 conditions). 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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMWri3WaLk0#t=7m48s 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. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
