When pilots see a ufo it seems they don't get on the intercom to let the passengers know.

Sure, I doubt they would as well.

Maybe they don't want to alarm

them and it could be possible pilots are not allowed to do that.

Well, pilots should be more concerned about their passengers comfort and safety first.

Alarming passsengers about spotting a UFO is rather ridiculous.

Could you imagine a plane full of passengers, stampeding towards the small windows - trampling and shoving everyone out of the way - so they can get a picture with their camera ? :lol:

I imagine the only time a Captain would alert passengers, is for a few reasons - like a bumpy ride ahead due to bad weather conditions, a mechanical problem, where an emergency landing may be required.....or god forbid, a terrorist concern :cry:

Still very frightening for passengers, but at least they would stay buckled in their seats.

Captain: And if you look out the port side of the plane you will see Paul and ET racing to the finish line. :w00t:

That's about right, we don't tell passengers much, most of them are reasonable, but because there are some people who will overreact and possibly cause more harm than good, we follow airline policy to keep UFO's reports reserved for superiors and certain ground staff. Most smaller and foreign airlines don't have any policies regarding UFO reporting.

One of the reasons pilots will not even tell staff, is because if we are suspected of lying, exaggerating, or even losing our mind, it's redundancy arrangements up next.

I know people, including family that saw the boomerang. When I told them the official explanation they laughed.

the Hudson valley event is one I have never looked into at all.

Sounds interesting though :tu:

Hi Starhunter, do you happen to be a pilot - or have been a pilot ?

Iv'e noticed that you use the word 'we' a bit in your post - and used the word 'our' :)

Yes, I'm well also, thankyou :)

Well, I'm not very familiar with the Hudson Valley case either.

It seems that Hawkin and preacherman may know more.

It might be a good case to check out, and give those that are interested, something newish to get their pearly whites into--> :D

It seems cases like Roswell, Phoenix Lights, JAL, etc....have been done to death.

Even so, they are still fascinating events, and will remain so for a very long time.

I agree, the pilots saw a UFO and lots of people see UFOs. The idea that the government runs around *whacking* UFO witnesses is kind of silly.

From my understanding of this, (and living on a military base, with a husband in the AF), I am surprised that they did report it. I'm use to it always being hushed hushed, with those who do report it I have noticed ending up worse in their careers for it. Or so I heard. ;) Anyways, I am reminded of someone I lived near, who worked in one part of the base that seeing interesting things might be usual, but to mention it was a no no. In a conversation, said something about seeing unusual sights in the skies all the time, but shut up quickly when it was going to be described. I was thinking, that was usual.

This is also based on the ONE TIME I actually flew a plane, a small one, so I know it's not the all given to using the one experience as a sure fire way to explain the pilot's actions, but I would think there is so much you are occupied with to really understand one thing happening right away. *shrugs*

I've seen a UFO...I've talked about it for quite literally decades. I've never been threatened by men in black or anyone for that matter. As for commercial pilots who see UFOs being put on 'desk duty' that I can believe...but being 'rubbed out' not so much.

I agree, something to that extreme I don't hear about it. I have talked about hearing something incredible while living on a base. I'm still here. :yes:

Wait....................... who's that?!?!!?!? ........... :oremember me!

Captain: And if you look out the port side of the plane you will see Paul and ET racing to the finish line. :w00t:

I'd like to see that!!!!

I didn't realize you were a pilot. That's interesting. :yes:

How naive can I be?

Here is a very good example (out of xxx^):

By the way, if you do see a crashed one, don't go anywhere near it or even in sight, because you'll probably won't find out why.

In the linked story he says he was a young pilot for a regional airline. (and not flying Obama's plane) ...

So by inference there would have likely been passengers aboard. Maybe one of them reported it to MUFON .... wait, was MUFON around in '89?

I don't know what the protocol is officially for pilots, but the attitudes surrounding UFOs was different in '89. While I have heard anecdotes of pilot's careers being ruined for reporting ufos, I try and only believe 90% of what I see on TV :)
