“You know that target south of the boundary there that 0027 code moving very fast at 37,000?” asked the Radar Operator.
Oakland Center Controller replied: “Oh, look at that thing, to what the Radar Operator responded, yeah, that’s, uh, crazy.”
Oakland Center Controller asked: “Huh, um… and you don’t have anything on him, huh?”
“I got nothing,” answered the Radar operator.
According to The War Zone, the object’s presence became a big concern for the basic fact it was doing something really dangerous and risky.
Namely, it swiftly turned into a thick stream of commercial airliners, where it vanished from radar yet not from eyesight.
The UFO was not reacting to the radio calls and didn’t even own an operating transponder.
All of a sudden, a swarm of reports started emerging from the confused pilots. They claimed they saw a giant white object flying side by side with them within a reach.
“Hey, it’s United 612, it’s just a white speck out there. I mean we can see it, but there’s no identification on it, just uh, that it’s there,” said one of the pilots.
What turned out to be the famous Oregon UFO incident really worried the Air Force too. The USAF’s Western Air Defence took an immediate action. They were aware of what’s going on and decided to make a closer touch.
US Air Force F15C Eagles, from Portland’s 142nd Fighter Wing, pushed to shortstop the UFO.
