Airplane Abducted By UFO caught on tape.
I've been sitting on this video since the day it was first posted to YouTube, August 11, 2009. At that time, the poster mentioned nothing at all about when, where, or how he got the video. Now the poster comes out with more info, days later.
I haven't seen this incident reported to MUFON, though maybe he reported on another website/organization. That info is so far, unknown. It is also unknown if any planes recently went missing in Arizona.
The video could be real, I don't know and I'm not about to say that it is. I've examined the video, captured images and tried to determine if this is a hoax. I've decided to go ahead and post and see where this leads.
Do videos like this help or hurt the search for the truth about UFOs? If they (videos) are real, then that is definitely a boon for ufologists everywhere. When it's a well done (or not so well done) hoax and well known, respected researchers and websites post it as real without doing a bit of "research", it discredits us all.
Here is what the author of the video recently posted on YouTube:
"The airplane was approaching Davis Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson Arizona at approximately 4:15PM MST on August 8th, 2009. We first witnessed the object hovering in a locked position, southwest of the base. We thought it was a balloon, until it dropped in elevation a few thousand feet in less then a second. At that point I ran inside and grabbed my digital camera and rushed outside in time to catch the object approaching the airplane from behind. Unfortunately the microphone barely works on the camera, from being dropped so many times, so you can't hear much. But at least there is a little. The object made no sound, completely silent.
There was an attempt to take the video to the media, unfortunately, every affiliate rejected the video due to lack of evidence. There was no report in the city of a missing airplane, nor did the Air Force Base report anything missing. Many of the news affiliates did confirm that they had received calls on August 8th from various sources, claiming they had seen a UFO. They said that they receive calls on a regular basis dealing with UFOs all the time, as well as many hoax videos, and there was no reason to believe my video was anything different. They refused to believe that the Air Force base would withhold information about a missing airplane."
