Swissair Flight 127 (Probably Capt. Bobet speaking.) "ATC Swissair 127."

ATC = Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center, Danbury Sector 22: "Go ahead Swissair."

Swissair: "Yes sir, I don't know what it was, but it just over flew just like a couple of hundred feet above us. I don't know if it was a rocket or whatever. But incredibly fast. Opposite direction."

ATC: "In the opposite direction?"

Swissair: "Yes sir, and the time was two-one-zero-seven (5:07 PM local time). It was too fast to be an airplane."

ATC: "OK, thank you."

(ATC): To Houston 986, another airplane in the vicinity of Swissair 127: "Did you see anything like a missile in your area, perhaps off to your right?"

H 986: "I'll take a good look, but if it's going that fast, I probably won't get a chance. We just saw Swissair go by a minute ago."

Swissair 127: "We had no warning. It was way too fast!"

The radio report was so provocative that the Boston Flight Standards office was notified while the airplane was still airborne and a FFA officer was sent to meet the crew. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), along with the FAA met the pilots. Normally this type of meeting is unheard of. The next day the Swissair crew was interviewed separately by four government agents. Bob Durant a commercial airline pilot later interviewed the Captain Bobet who said, he was clearly dismayed the balloon explanation. "He thought it preposterous!" Captain Bolet thought, "The path of the UFO was from opposite direction, slightly right. Estimated horizontal distance-between First Officer's seat and engine #3, vertical distance between 100 and 200 feet above the aircraft. "At the same time, I saw the First Officer plunging his head down towards his knees. The Flight Officer mentioned later that he thought he would get hit by the object. The UFO speed appeared to be very high. The object was white and balloons are dark. Balloons fly for about an hour and the last one had been launched ten hours earlier. Thanks to R. J. Durant and Don Berliner. A detailed report is available from the Fund for UFO Research.

Editor's Note: Several terrible accidents have occurred in recent years that may be related to near collisions with UFOs. The crew of Egyptian Flight 990 apparently put their aircraft into a steep dive possibly as the result of a near miss. News accounts speculated that a pilot wanted to commit suicide and caused the death of those aboard. I feel it is more likely that Flight 990 took evasive action to avoid hitting an approaching Unidentified Flying Object similar to the one that almost hit Swissair 127. Allegedly, Egyptian pilot Gameel el-Batouty's said a prayer "Now I put my faith in God's hands" just prior to diving the aircraft. The plane dived for 40 seconds and seemed to pull up before failing to recover.

NOW! Hear the exciting transcripts of this pilot/ufo encounter!
