In an interview on unidentified aerial phenomena, Dr. Richard F. Haines explains that several features can be distinguished when observing UFO phenomena.
One is that when UFOs approach our planes, they show curiosity and interest, not a desire to attack.
UFOs and aliens are usually feared. It comes from pop culture and films. But does this evidence of the UFO phenomenon indicate what we should be afraid of?
Former NASA Senior Scientist Dr. Richard F. Haines spoke about the UFO phenomenon, focusing on the observations of more than 3,000 pilots. He spoke about the phenomenon and how these objects, which are constantly observed, behave.
These objects were spotted and tracked on radar, making maneuvers beyond the power of any known artificial mechanism, while moving at unreachable speeds.
Another common theme is that these objects approach human airplanes and behave similarly to curiosity, Dr. Haynes explains.
For example, in the case of military aircraft, pilots observe how critical electronic capabilities, such as the ability to launch missiles, are disabled when they are near these objects.
One notable example comes from the Iranian encounter of fighters with UFOs in 1976, when the weapons systems of several jet aircraft went out of order.
Dr. Haynes explains that in 50 percent of the cases he has encountered, these objects are approaching our planes, and not vice versa.
Haynes goes on to say that UFOs appear to be making evasive maneuvers to avoid our planes so as not to create a potential collision. This portion of the interview reminds the following quote from General Nathan Twining in 1947.
“The phenomenon reported is something real, not a vision or fiction … Reported performance characteristics such as extreme climb rates, maneuverability, and actions to be considered as avoidance upon detection or contact with friendly aircraft and radars, suggest that some of the objects are controlled manually, automatically or remotely. ”
Dr. Haines is currently Chief Scientist for NARCAP, an organization that has been investigating, documenting and analyzing aviation security and UFO sightings and incidents since 1999.
