Marine Corps captain Larry Jividen has told the story of a UFO he witnessed 40 years ago.

Jividen had been flying a T-39D Sabreliner aircraft with five Naval officers on board as part of a special training flight, everything had been going to plan until he noticed a strange object moving towards them. "At about 9 o'clock, we were descending from a high altitude -- around 33,000 feet -- and I looked off to the right side of the airplane where I saw a solid red light at our 1:00 o'clock position and altitude," he recalled. "It was not flashing like normal anti-collision lights flash on airplanes."

Having checked with ground control who had confirmed that no other objects were in the vicinity, Jividen changed course to intercept the UFO. Matching his course and speed for several minutes the object finally disappeared when it zoomed off in to the distance.

"On the night of February 6, 1975, Marine Reserve Squadron Capt."
