FeaturedUFO Sighting Reports

Former Obama pilot who saw UFO talks to Fox News (Video)

Last month, a pilot who flew for President Obama during his 2008 campaign wrote an article about an incredible UFO sighting he had in 1989. This weekend he spoke to Clayton Morris on Fox News’ Fox and Friends about his UFO experience (seen below).

In his article last month for the New York Daily News, pilot Andy Danzinger says that many pilots have shared UFO stories with him. He claims “virtually all pilots believe in UFOs.”

Danzinger continued, “with billions of stars and trillions of planets out there, ‘ya gotta believe,’ and almost all of us [pilots] do.”

The first thing Morris wanted to know during his interview with Danzinger on Saturday, was why pilots don’t talk about their UFO sightings.

Danzinger told Morris that there was no formal policy to not speak about UFO sightings at his airline or any one he had ever worked for, but that there was an “unwritten” rule of sorts.

Danzinger explained, “We were young. We were new in our careers, and the way people tend to be ridiculed about all of this, you just kind of kept quiet.”

As for his UFO encounter, Danzinger says it was “unbelievable.”

You can read more about his sighting in our prior article on his UFO encounter, but Danzinger explained to Morris, “I was just a first officer in a commuter airliner turboprop.”

Danzinger was flying from Kansas City International Airport bound for Waterloo, Iowa. He says there were “crystal clear skies in Kansas City. Crystal clear skies in Waterloo.”

Soon after takeoff he and the captain spotted a “massive disk.” He said it was dimly visible through the clouds, and the object appeared to be pacing their aircraft. They knew the object was not the moon, as they could see the moon on the opposite side of their cockpit.

Soon after, the object turned into a giant red ball.

Morris asked if any of the passengers of the aircraft saw the UFO. Danzinger told him, “The captain did, but I don’t know about any of the passengers.”

Morris also apparently has an interest in the UFO topic. He says he often asks pilots off the air whether they have had UFO sightings. He says they often admit that they have had UFO sightings, but that they keep it quiet. Morris asked Danzinger, “Why is that? Is it fear of losing their job?”

Danzinger replied, “I don’t know. You don’t want to be brandished as being crazy. That was one of our concerns before we actually reported it to air traffic control. We discussed it amongst each other. ‘Is this something that is going to jeopardize our career?’ The government seems to discount every single report that ever seems to come out. The news media, at least in the past, tends to ridicule every UFO report, so, you know, that was all going on really big back in the 1980s.”

Morris asked if Danzinger had heard from other pilots regarding his UFO article and the publicity it had been getting. Danzinger said he had gotten some feedback.

Danzinger says pilots have told him, “Wow, maybe this is finally going to get the stuff out. I have seen stuff. It is about time someone actually came forward, and you are actually getting some press, and maybe people will start believing this a little bit more.”

  1. He’s not crazy because this same thing was seen in the Ely Nevada area 5 or 6 years ago. Many people saw it and I was one. It first appeared as a very bright star and suddenly it would blossom out into a twinkling orange sphere which appeared to me like a picture you see of the sun through a filter. It was very bright and twinkled. I would guess 20 people in Ely witnessed it and the same thing was seen from northern Nevada to southern Arizona. I was contacted by Bigalow Aerospace from Las Vegas and was interviewed by them for about 30 minutes. I got the impression that it had something to do with alternate propulsion devices. I myself think it was something entering or leaving our reality. Something was popping in and out of our airspace. These things were NOT out in space. They were very close to the ground. Some people reported seeing them being chased by military aircraft. This experience convinced me that there are indeed things we cannot explain. Call them what you may.

  2. WARNING: This is actually happening I have seen a UFO in Boise Idaho. 6 year ago. They are terraforming the earth and US government know it but can’t say anything about it. Their are videos out their that have seen ships putting something in the water. They have always had base on the moon. I have been charting the plants that they could travel from. “why this it answer’s” the question why it is so many and now they don’t care if we spot their movement
