Stealth Aircraft Sighting Over Oregon -What Could It Be?
At around 4:30 p.m. on October 25, 2017, an unidentified white stealth aircraft was seen flying through the heavily trafficked corridor between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. It caused enough concern that the Oregon Air National Guard scrambled F-15 fighter jets from Portland International Airpot (PDX) to intercept. They couldn’t find it.
“The air traffic controllers were unable to track the aircraft on radar, but had received multiple reports of its presence; further, it was not operating with an activated traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) transponder, meaning it could potentially pose a threat to the heavily trafficked corridor of airspace.
Numerous pilots confirmed the presence of the aircraft visually, with one getting as close as four miles from it, but could offer little information as to the type of the craft or its origin. The aircraft did not respond to communications efforts, nor did it display any aggressive behavior toward nearby planes, but the mystery surrounding it created enough concern that the Oregon Air National Guard scrambled F-15 fighters from the Portland International Airport to intercept. Surprisingly, despite multiple civilian and commercial pilots confirming the craft’s presence and location, it had disappeared before the fighter jets arrived.”
It’s probably not an alien aircraft, based on the fact that it behaved like a normal airplane. Generally, “UFO” aircraft can accomplish maneuvers that ordinary planes cannot, according to SOFREP. Then there’s the fact that the military acknowledges its existance, at least as far as they’d go. UFO sightings generally are not acknowledged. You know, “swamp gas” and “mass delusion.”
And of course, they may not be telling the public everything they know.
“When it comes to a secret military aircraft, flying such an asset among jetliner traffic in daylight, albeit it was around sunset time, certainly seems like an odd choice for a secretive program, but that doesn’t make it impossible. There are vast and remote training ranges that could be taken advantage of in Alaska for clandestine aircraft programs, and it is a long flight to get there. Still, the idea that U.S. military would willingly fly an aircraft through a major air traffic route at common jet operating altitudes without radio, transponder, or even radar contact would be highly concerning if true.” The Drive
Was it a new drone? Some other military aircraft? Why is it white- or is that simply what the pilots who saw it thought it was? And perhaps the biggest question of all…is it ours?
