“Thousands of sighting of unusual unidentified flying objects (UFOs) have been reported by civilian and military pilots from around the world over past decades,” reports Steve Hammons for the Joint Recon Study Group.
“It is probably safe to assume that many more pilot sightings have gone unreported, due to the risks to pilots’ reputations and jobs – Some may have been counseled that it would be best to forget what they saw,” reports Hammons.
“In the U.S., many military and civilian pilots have been involved in groups seeking to research the subject of UFOs for reasons of aviation safety, national security, scientific curiosity or simply because they found the topic to be a very interesting mystery,” reports Hammons.
“In her new book, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, journalist Leslie Kean prominently notes the roles of U.S. and international military and civilian pilots involved in the UFO phenomenon,” reports Hammons.
“Pilot statements about this subject are considered credible because, like peace officers and other professionals, they are considered trained observers,” reports Hammons. “They must have excellent situation awareness and are aware of how aircraft, weather phenomena, stars and other things visually appear in our skies – And, of course, many civilian pilots are former military aviators.”
