I Saw a UFO, and So Did Members of My Flight Crew

Another pilot, another opinion on UFOs. The obvious rebuttal to Art Saboski’s “A Pilot Explains UFOs—for the Last Time” (Letters, Nov. 2) would be: So, UFOs don’t exist because you and your friends have never seen one? I know they exist because I was the co-pilot of a Pan American cargo flight with five crew members who clearly saw their formation. It was on a crystal clear, moonless night over Nova Scotia’s south coast, and we all watched and saw the same thing through different panes of cockpit glass. Their dance was from another world. It lasted five minutes and terminated with the most dazzling feat of aerodynamics we had ever seen. I have now retired to the largest fly-in community in the world, in which many highly trained observers know that UFOs are real, “cataracts and floaters” aside.
