Nice. It's always been the air force that encounters the UFOs. I hope the aliens won't think that earth people are always at war with anyone.

I can't believe they said that they think it was the Planet Venus. Come on people! That conclusion seems to be one of the 'official' explanations with many UFO cases. That and hallucinations galore.

Yes,its also interesting that the initial aviation authority UFO report (from 3 different aircraft) was completely pulled and replaced with a 'heavily censored' version. Theres an interesting film here dealing with the supression,censorship and manipulation of the UFO subject within the corporate media: A mesmerizing account of his investigation into whether some of America's most influential news organizations, many having maintained close ties to the U.S. intelligence community, have willingly suppressed full and accurate news coverage of extraterrestrial related phenomena for a variety of "...
