The first on record account of a fatal encounter with a UFO and a U.S. Army pilot occurred on Jan. 8. 1948 over Franklin, Ky.


It was on this day that 25-year-old National Guard jet fighter pilot Capt. Thomas Mantell Jr.’s plane exploded, instantly killing him, as he was pursuing a “mysterious flaming red cone trailing a gaseous green mist,” seen by thousands, according to an initial article by the Associated Press.

Interesting. Hopefully we'll know for some day, but for now it's interesting speculation.

Lieutenant Felix Moncla also died pursuing a UFO near Lake Superior in 1953. His RIO Lt Robert Wilson also died. They were flying an F-89.

Encountering...

He's not the only pilot to have UFO "issues". I remember one pilot in Australia disappeared entirely.

Valentich disappearance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But UFOs are kook stuff; only crazies and liars see them.

Considering the times, if someone said "SOVIET SPY PLANE" there would have been an uproar, if someone says "UFO" the response is "yeah..right...whatever"
