|Air National Guard by Reddit.com|
Saturday October 25th Seattle Air Traffic Controllers noticed an aircraft in their space, without a transponder. Therefore they began querying airline pilots. This completely white aircraft was identified by multiple airliners. However, when the Oregon National Guard came to action, they could see nothing. The aircraft was gone.
Kyle Mizokami, from Popular Mechanics, stated:
"The aircraft was near Crater Lake, Oregon when air traffic controllers started asking nearby pilots about it. The aircraft was described as a white object flying north between 35,000 and 40,000 feet. At one point in the air traffic controller audio clip, one pilot says the mystery bird is 12 to 15 miles away, and distances from other aircraft ranged from four to 20 miles. Another pilot, observing the aircraft, estimates an airspeed of 370 knots, or 425 miles an hour on the ground, also noting he is not getting a TCAS transponder signal."
"Most intriguingly, (this aircraft) could not
be picked up on radar."
Thus, for all those who believe that technology
can do anything pilots can do...
This is one case where
technology could not see another aircraft,
But the pilot could!
Never Underestimate the Importance
Of your Pilot!
Enjoy the Journey!
