In our Special Investigative episode we present your former NAC pilot - Peter Maher who joined me over the telephone all the way from New Zealand.
Peter will describe important Radar-Visual UFO Incident from 1970s while he was flying NAC Fokker 27 Airplane from Tauranga to Auckland. Case involves visual sighting, radar detection from ground and on-board radars. Most dramatic element is a near-miss incident which is raising air Safety concerns.
On top of that, incident has very similar characteristics with Pan Adria incident from 1976 which I am researching for the last 21 years. That incident happened above former Yugoslavia.
In both of these cases, we can compare following aspects:
- Radar detection with on-board and ground radars.
- Frontal confrontation with an UFO which allowed detection from Fokker's weather radar with a very strong signal.
- Visual sighting.
- UFO followed air plane during considerable part of the flight route maintaining speed and distance from the plane.
- Enormous speed increase from an UFO and near-miss incident.
