I have a video clip of a UFO (seen and taped from a helicopter containing an unknown man and a woman). The tape shows clearly the UFO disk, first seen between the towers of the WTC, and then flying at a remarkable speed away from, and then directly at, the helicopter, almost making contact with it, and then the UFO veers up and away, out of site. At first I thought this was a hoax (for sure) - but after the tragic WTC attack, and then reading the accounts you have in your database of UFOs seen near the WTC on 9/11 - now I don't exactly know what to think.

((NUFORC Note: Individual includes video clip of the incident, which we have seen before, and of which we have a copy. If anyone knows the witnesses involved in this case, we would be grateful for more, and detailed, information about the alleged incident. Although the video appears real, we have never seen the actual witnesses to the alleged incident interviewed, and we have never seen a written report. Also, we are not certain that the date shown for this report is the correct date for the incident, but will attempt to confirm that fact. It does appear to be footage taken during the summer, however. PD))
