UFO sightings



Disappearance of Frederick Valentich

On 21 October 1978 young Australian pilot named Frederick Valentich was flying Cessna 182L light aircraft over Bass Strait in Australia. About 7:06 PM he contacted the control tower in Melbourne and said that he sees a large airplane flying around him. After 6 minutes of dialogue with the tower he stated, that it isn’t a plane and then the contact was broken. Valentich and his aircraft were never found, Australian Department of Transport investigation concluded that the reason for the disappearance could not be determined.

Sceptics point out that 20-year-old Valentich was interested in UFO and could have faked the event (also according to them there are similarities between the dialogue and first scenes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind), but nevertheless still there is no explanation for his disappearance.

The transcript of the 6-minute dialogue between Valentich and tower in Melbourne:
