FAA Quality Assurance Specialist calls to relay incident reported to FAA, which occured 90 miles southeast of Saginaw, MI.

The object was reported by two crews to be colored green, red, and at times, other colors. It may have been shaped like a disc, and it was able to accelerate and move at astonishing velocities. One pilot was very close to it, and another crew observed both the object and the incident from a short distance away. The incident occured from 2151 to 2215 hrs. (local).

The object was not visible on radar. He was not sure whether the aircraft in question would have had TCAS capability.

The caller had talked to one of the pilots, and he would arrange to have him contact our Center.


This incident was extensively investigated by a reporter for The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland, to include interviews of the crew members of the aircraft, and the FAA controllers. After the paper had been written, an editor at the paper decided that the article should not be published. NUFORC has a copy of the draft. PD
