Great interview with Dr Richard Haines from the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) which does a good job of dispelling many of the misconceptions and stereotypes made about the UFO/UAP subject - Dr Haines goes into quite comprehensive detail about military/civilian pilot sightings, electromagnetic interference effects and the 3400 actual unknown reports collated from aviation professionals so if anyone hasn't heard it, it's well worth a listen (preferably before posting).

Good review of lecture given by Dr Richard Haines on the subject of pilot UFO reports:


Quote

Dr. Richard Haines is a Senior Research Scientist at the NASA-Ames Research Centre. He is best known for his work with pilots and their UFO sightings. Over the last 30 years he has been investigating the subject, he has amassed over 3000 pilot sighting reports..

During his 30 years of investigations Dr. Haines has established a percentage break down of what type of pilot has reported a UFO. From his 3000 odd reports from 1916 (WWI) to October 1996, military pilots have reported 52% of these sightings while commercial pilots represent 40%, private pilots 7% and less than 1% for test pilots. Of these sightings, most are seen in good weather and 30% are during the day while the remaining 70% account for the night. Approximately 3% of the total reports have experienced electromagnetic effects on instruments when a UFO is close to the aircraft; even dimming of the cabin lights has been reported. These effects have lasted for 5 seconds up to a staggering 180 minutes of flight time.

Cheers Donteatus -that's one mighty fine looking barbeque you've got there.   :yes:

Did you listen to the interview - it's probably one of the best ones I've heard about the UFO subject.

Another very interesting technical report from the NARCAP website dealing with 'under reporting bias' within the pilot community  - as Dr Haines mentions in the interview, there are a huge number of military/civilian pilot sightings out there yet many are reticent to report their experiences due to fear of ridicule, damage to reputation, potential unemployment etc..

More info about Dr Richard Haine's work on Korean War UFO reports as mentioned in the initial interview:

This is a presentation of data of 42 UFO sightings in or near Korea from 1950 through to 1954. Thirty one are official reports from American pilots taken from military records and ten are ground observations taken from Project Bluebook files. One is an interview, conducted thirty six years later with a GI who fired on a UFO in 1951. The descriptions of the events vary considerably in length and detail. The sighting reports are preceded by a brief description of both sides combat planes and capabilities.

Nice clip from the 1979 UFO documentary "UFOs Are Real" featuring a very young Dr Richard Haines and witness testimony regarding the Coyne incident.

Statement on the reality of UFOs by Doc Haines.

Quote

“Although I do not yet have enough reliable information concerning the relevant characteristics of the UFO phenomenon with which to form a scientific judgment of its “core” identity, I do believe that the phenomenon is objectively real; i.e., I believe that the many thousands of eyewitnesses around the world are experiencing UFO phenomenon in a manner very similar to the way any other human with normal sensory capabilities would perceive it if they happened to be present.”

Dr Richard Haines, NASA scientist, UFO researcher, author of several books on UFOs, expert on pilot UFO sightings

SkyEagle, appreciate the post mate - Dr Richard Haines is a very knowledgeable chap and has amassed quite a number of truly puzzling UFO incidents - here he is discussing the subject in a good documentary about pilot UFO reports:

Nice chart compiled by NICAP:


Quote

What the pilots have seen.

This chart lists over 100 UFO sightings by pilots (AL=Airline pilot; M=Military; P=Private), the majority of whom reported typical geometrical objects such as discs and ellipses. The resulting patterns of the observations, and their strong similarity to reports by other reliable witnesses are readily apparent.

Good morning Karl, and thanks for posting the chart link.  I really enjoyed the Paracast in your OP when I listened to it a month or so ago.  Richard Haines has a really good head on his shoulders and is one of the researchers that I hold in high regard simply because he approaches this subject in an objective manner as far as I can tell.

Regarding the chart though, it looks like it only lists sightings from 1944 through 1963.  I'm pretty sure that NICAP was in operation up until ~1980 or so.  Do you happen to know if they might have collected reports between 1963 and 1980 that didn't get included in this chart?  Perhaps they are sitting around in a box in someone's attic or something?

Hey Boonyzarc, thanks for the reply and you're certainly right about that Paracast interview - truly interesting stuff.  :yes:
Regarding the NICAP link and pilot incidents from the intervening years, I don't know if you've seen it before but Domonic Weinstein has compiled a good catalog below and it appears there are quite a number of strange reports:

There are also these interesting Australian aircraft reports collated by Project1947:
