7 Of the most spine chilling Military encounters with UFO’s that were not exaggerated

During the seventies at the height of the cold war, The UCFO phenomenon peaked in the USA where the government relished the concept of people seeing alien craft everywhere. However that era was also the period of frequent testing of aircraft which actually resembled alien ships and were mistaken for such due to the height at which they were flying.


But when it’s the other way around, how does the government explain that when pilots encounter a UCFO on their mission, objects that in no way can be identified by markings, design or gadgetry whatsoever. Let’s take a look at 10 of these military encounters with UFOs.

1 The Dulce Incident, 1979

In Dulce on the border of Colorado and Mexico a man named Philip Schneider spilled the beans about a secret US military base he was contracted to work in by the US government. Schneider reported about the heavy military presence on the construction site. But what Schneider revealed was a shock to everyone.


He claimed that he was attacked by tall gray skinned aliens. His military escort opened fire and killed two of them even as one of the aliens retaliated with a plasma beam that caused Schneider to lose a couple of fingers. The incident took place inside a cavern where a total of sixty soldiers engaged in battle making the aliens retreat back into the cavern. Later Schneider was found murdered in his apartment.

3 The Chinese Air Force Encounter, 1998

It was a Monday, the 19th of October, 1998. An unidentified object was spotted near a flight training school by four Chinese Military radar stations in the Hubei province of Changzhou. A Jianjiao 6 fighter was scrambled to intercept the object even as innumerous witnesses saw the UFO from the ground. It appeared to be a small star like object with a dome and intense flashing lights.


Although the Jianjiao 6 fighter came within 4000 meters of the object, it evaded the fighter easily. The pilot was ordered not to engage but only observe, however the pilot soon ran out of fuel at 12000 meters and returned to base. Two more fighters were scrambled to continue the interception but the object disappeared from radar before they could do so.

As the pilots neared the object they could see it was lit up with a brilliant light,. At 25 nautical miles, Captain Azizhi lost all control with his communication and the jets instrumentation failed. He had no option but to return to base.

A second jet fighter piloted by Lt Parvis Jafari inched at Mach 1 towards the object. However when he noticed a smaller object detach from the main, he launched an AIM-9 sidewinder missile, surprisingly the launch failed and Jafari lost all weapons control. The smaller object returned to the biggest one after which Jafari’s instrumentation returned.

They shone with a mysterious red glow. Eventually they disappeared and all controls and communication connected to the ICBMs returned.


Boeing engineers investigating the Missiles could not find any logical explanation. Moreover technology of the day was not advanced enough to emit a pulse of such high intensity t render the missiles inoperable, the incident remains a mystery.
