Here are some rather spooky incidents involving airline pilots reporting UFO sightings.

Over the years there have been reports of people claiming to have spotted some sort of UFO but, realistically, if they exist the people who are most likely to spot them more frequently have to be pilots during flight!

Here are some cases of pilots who have claimed to have sighted a UFO during flight:

JAL Flight 1628: On approach to Alaska, the pilots of a Boeing 747 cargo aeroplane made a call to air traffic control to confirm another aircraft that was significantly bigger than they were. But this happened in 1986, and a 747 was the biggest plane in the world. After the report, air traffic control asked another aircraft in the area to see whether or not they could see anything, and they didn't. After the reporting, the pilot soon got banned from flying and got a desk job position.

US Flighter Jets Report: This one seems to be the most compelling as there is video footage of an unidentified flying object, and you can hear the pilots commentary: "They are all going against the wind, the wind is 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing dude! Oh my gosh, dude! Wow what is that man?"
