Follow-up from MUFON Asst.State Director of Tennessee Kim Shaffer I have inquired the FAA office in Knoxville as to the possible reporting or recording of an anomoly that morning. The FAA spokesman was very helpful but was fairly certain that Brisish Airways flt,272 was inbound for Atlanta at F.L. 340 and makes it's turn for Atlanta near Knoxville occasionally. This flight ,due to altitude and sun angle at that time of morning, has been reported to them before as a "vertically ascending anomoly".
