You Need to Hear These FAA Tapes From That Oregon UFO Incident That Sent F-15s Scrambling – The WarZone

“It’s been an unusual night here for us” said the Operations Manager in Charge for Seattle Air Route Traffic Control Center of an incident that occurred on October 25th of last year. Pilots of multiple air crews saw something that flitted in and (mostly) out of radar’s grasp at about 37,000 feet altitude between Oakland and Portland, and escaped jet interception. Tyler Rogoway profiled this story in November as Airliners And F-15s Involved In Bizarre Encounter With Mystery Aircraft Over Oregon. And apparently that “mystery” still remains. Working from materials gained through the Freedom of Information Act, Rogoway has now done a masterful job of packaging audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls, plus radar data and his own commentary, into a coherent presentation of those events. Noting that FOIA Strikes Again, Billy Cox aptly likens the occurrence to “that riveting opening sequence in ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind'”. The account, both authors remark, dramatically shows our air control and defense networks in operation, especially during a situation beyond standard procedures. A fascinating set of articles. (WM)
