Andy Danzinger, former pilot of American President Barack Obama, has revealed that he saw a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) turning into a giant red ball in 1989.
"I was just a first officer in a commuter airliner turboprop. I was flying from Kansas City International Airport bound for Waterloo, Iowa. There were crystal-clear skies in Kansas City. Crystal clear skies in Waterloo," Danzinger told the host.
"It was dimly visible through the clouds, and the object appeared to be pacing the aircraft. We knew the object was not the moon, as we could see the moon on the opposite side of the cockpit. Soon after, the object turned into a giant red ball," he continued.
Danzinger said that the captain saw the object but don't know the passengers did. He added that most pilots witness UFO but don't talk about though there is no rule not to disclose.
"We were young. We were new in our careers, and the way people tend to be ridiculed about all of this, you just kind of kept quiet. You don't want to be brandished as being crazy. That was one of our concerns before we actually reported it to air traffic control. We discussed it amongst each other. Is this something that is going to jeopardise our career?' The government seems to discount every single report that ever seems to come out. The news media, at least in the past, tends to ridicule every UFO report, so, you know, that was all going on really big back in the 1980s," he said.
"Virtually all pilots believe in UFOs. Pilots have said to me: "Wow, maybe this is finally going to get the stuff out. I have seen stuff. It is about time someone actually came forward, and you are actually getting some press, and maybe people will start believing this a little bit more."
