A retired Navy Commander released his official statement about that one time he had a UFO encounter, witnessing a bizarre craft rising out of the ocean and flying past his plane.
On February 10, 1951, Navy pilot and officer Graham Bethune, along with his crew, was flying in a mission from Iceland to Newfoundland.
While finishing the mission, they experienced something rather inexplicable. This event marked the whole life of the ex-Navy commander and the rest of the crew as well.
Namely, the members of the mission noticed a bizarre light on the ocean’s watery surface around 300 miles from Newfoundland.
These lights were so eminent and scattered throughout a large area hence the men felt like they were flying over a city.
During the Disclosure Project Conference in Washington DC in 2001, ex-commander Bethune explained his weird UFO encounter.
“As we approached this glow it turned to a monstrous circle of white lights on the water. Then we saw a yellow halo, small, much smaller than whatever it was launched from, about fifteen miles away.”
In only a matter of seconds, the gleaming UFO equaled their altitude. Thus, Bethune had to free the autopilot and draw the plane’s nose down in order to dodge a crash. But soon, the object shifted going towards them.
“As the UFO approached my plane and flew alongside it, we could see the domed craft which had a corona discharge,” he said.
At the same time, certain plane instruments started failing due to the powerful electromagnetic disruptions the UFO generated.
The plane had 31 passengers, a psychiatrist and of course, the crew aboard. All of them watched as the event was unrolling.
As soon as the plane landed, the witnesses were questioned and pressured on signing a non-disclosure form. Their testimonies, however, were upheld by radar data from an Air Force station in Goose Bay, Labrador.
Do you believe Mr. Bethune and his crew really experienced a true UFO encounter? Tell us your opinion.
