Airline Pilot Recounts UFO Experience from 1989

- in UFOs

As a pilot, Andrew Danziger gets asked a lot of questions, but his favorite is, “Have you ever seen a UFO while flying?” The answer is, “yes” and in an article for the New York Daily News he goes into detail about his experience.


We spent 20 to 30 minutes at our cruise altitude, all the while staring at this white disc dimly visible through some clouds that we somehow never seemed to fly through.

While Andrew and the other pilot on board watched this disc with curiosity they went about their routine business of flying the plane. But then…

I yelled to Bruce, “Holy s–t.” He immediately looked over from what he was doing. Above the clouds, where the white disc had been, was now a giant red ball.

He goes on to explain that people in communication with him on the ground picked up nothing on radar. They asked him if he wanted to report a UFO sighting and when he said that he did, they gave him the number for the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) which he’d never heard of prior.
