    Japan Airlines JAL1628

    Surprised we haven't got a thread about this but this recent discovery by John Greenewald definitely deserves posting here.

    Its a legendary case, famously John Callahan who was in charge of the Alaskan FAA at the time testified about it in 2001 as part of the Disclosure project.
    He also wrote his own chapter about the incident in Leslie Kean's UFOs Pilots Generals... go on the Record.
    He managed to recreate all the radar screens from the print outs filmed them. He still has copies somewhere.

    17 YEARS after being told the documents relating to this event were destroyed — I finally found them!

    The following is a description of the event, as archived by Wikipedia, to give a bit of background the case:

    Japan Air Lines flight 1628 was a UFO incident that occurred on November 17, 1986 involving a Japanese Boeing 747-200F cargo aircraft. The aircraft was en route from Paris to Narita International Airport, near Tokyo, with a cargo of Beaujolais wine. On the Reykjavík to Anchorage section of the flight, at 17:11 over eastern Alaska, the crew first witnessed two unidentified objects to their left. These abruptly rose from below and closed in to escort their aircraft. Each had two rectangular arrays of what appeared to be glowing nozzles or thrusters, though their bodies remained obscured by darkness. When closest, the aircraft’s cabin was lit up and the captain could feel their heat on his face. These two craft departed before a third, much larger disk-shaped object started trailing them. Anchorage Air Traffic Control obliged and requested an oncoming United Airlines flight to confirm the unidentified traffic, but when it and a military craft sighted JAL 1628 at about 17:51, no other craft could be distinguished. The sighting lasted 50 minutes.

    I first filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents from the FAA back in 2001. Throughout the processing, they determined that I was a “commercial” requester, and they were going to charge me excessive fees for the search and duplication of responsive records, which totaled a little more than 100 pages. This was one of hundreds of examples of game play by our U.S. Government and Military agencies while processing my FOIA requests. When you file, you fit into one of three “fee categories.” The basic definition of categories is commercial, non-commercial, or all other....
