Graham had three UFO incidents to mention, they are as follows:
On the 14th September between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm Graham and his wife and two children were outside having a cuppa after dinner when his youngest son said, look Dadda there's a plane. Both parents looked and noticed that there were 4 orange lights, each one about the size of a one cent piece at arms length. They were traveling South to North horizontally one behind the other, at what appeared to be around 100 feet apart from each other, evenly spaced. They were not flickering or pulsating, no smoke trails could be seen, but they were traveling very slowly. Graham estimated they were around 2,000 feet off the ground. He came to the height estimate as he had lived near the Richmond Air Force base for 10 years previously and therefore had quite a bit of exposure to aircraft. He stated at no time was there any indications of erratic flying tactics.
A few minutes later another two appeared traveling horizontally side by side at around 100 feet apart once again. A few minutes later another two appeared one behind the other. Graham stated they all ascended on a 30 degree climb when they reached the same area in the sky. He watched them ascend for 10 minutes until they were nothing more than pin points in the sky. It was a very clear night he said, there was no cloud cover, not even periodic. No noise was apparent.
Incident 1970 - 71:
Graham wanted to mention that he observed a white cigar shaped object around 30 years ago which was only around 1200 feet off the ground over Pennant Hills Area. He stated it happened within an hour of the first Concord Plane landing in Sydney way back then (June 17th 1972? - John @ UFOINFO). The family were outside hoping to catch a glimps of the plane, but observed something else instead. He stated it was clearly not a blimp and did not have the same shape at all. He said the UFO seemed almost transparent and just hovered there.
Note: If anyone knows when the first Concord landed in Sydney Australia that will provide the timeline within an hour.
Disc Shaped Object:
He also mentioned a disc shaped object he and his father observed at Narabri when he was young, his father was out hunting or something. He stated the disc was a yellowish hazy white, his father was so scared he took his son home.
