The UFO Phenomenon

Revisited: Former Obama pilot's UFO encounter

The pilot who once flew Senator Barack Obama had a surreal experience with an unidentified flying object.
Speaking in an interview with Lisa Kennedy Montgomery on Fox Business, Andy Danziger, who was once the pilot responsible for making sure Obama got where he needed to be before he became president of the United States, had previously served as a pilot on a regional airline.

The experience he recalls occurred in 1989 during a routine flight from Kansas City to Waterloo, Iowa.

It had been a clear night and the aircraft had reached a cruise altitude of 15,000ft when the crew spotted what looked like a full moon partially obscured by thin cloud some way in the distance.

It wasn't the actual moon because that was visible as a crescent in another part of the sky.

The object remained stationary in the sky for around 40 minutes.
As the crew got ready to descend for landing in Waterloo, Danziger recalled observing what he described as a "gigantic red ball" above the clouds in front of them.

It was so large that it took up almost half of the window.

As the plane descended, the object began to be increasingly obscured by cloud. When it was completely behind the clouds, it triggered a flashing light show that left the crew stunned.

As the clouds separated, the flashing stopped and the object had completely disappeared.

You can view the full interview with Danziger in the video below.

I hope it isn't coming on orders from the Bad Orange Man. The cognitive dissonance here might fracture the space time continuum

Dont worry. Since this is coming from an ex obama employee trump will soon be on tv talking about he had the biggest and deepest alien probing ever.

So, any evidence?  It seems that this is an evidence free zone, and anything that is released by pseudo-**** organisations like "To The Stars" just shows how little they (deliberately?) know about the systems being used..   May I suggest someone installs dashcams on aircraft?

And I havta ask, why 'revisited'?  This interview must date back to 2015 or earlier, as that's when he died.  So what new info has arisen?  Has perhaps any crew member come forward to verify this?  They haven't up to now, and it's not difficult to do anonymously, so the excuse of ridicule just doesn't wash with me... (and I've never seen a polite and genuine witness get a hard time..) ...

It seems like a lot of airliners have external cameras for passenger to view.  Has there been a sighting recorded on those?  Obviously, alyenz have camera detecting technology - probably similar to that of International Rescue.

  Yup. And I'm sure he knew he was dying of cancer. It's almost like he wanted to share this with us before he died!

How is it profitable for the Military to do a 180 on these stories? Delonge is a disinfo agent, whether he knows it or not. He has ties to a lot of shady people.

Maybe in the "age of information" it's becoming too difficult to conduct secret Military tests so they decided to legitimize UFO hysteria as a cover. Yeah, sure, those lights you saw were aliens. Now go about your business and stop worrying about it.

It says in article crew saw object as well. Very odd. I vaguely recall reading story couple months ago about UFO sighting (I honestly can't remember specifics, sorry, perhaps will look up tomm..possibly near national park/forest) where someone reported a gigantic red ball appear then disappear in parking lot. How would anyone explain something like that to spouse/co worker/friend w out appearing insane?..can anyone?
