Number of witnesses: 1

Full Description of event/sighting: I and fellow sailplane pilots, we were getting ready for a day of flying at the Dansvile airport, we were have just general conversation about and with one of our instructors that myself and a fellow pilot that we admired. The instructor was known to not to drink or smoke, and we make a comment about this and other things that he didn't partake in. He didn't have any religious practices and he with out any question was one of the best that would never say anything wrong about anybody. Just a good person.

Seeing we had him in a talking mood, as we walked across the airport, me and my fellow pilot figure we'd ask him if he ever seen a UFO. So we asked the biggy. "Hey (name removed), have ya ever seen a UFO", his reply was just ya, he was bout 15 feet ahead of us as we walked. We reminded him that we were having a conversation. Jokingly, what was it.

As the story goes, he was up in a sailplane in side of a cloud (this is a no, no per the FAA) and was getting some good altitude, 15K and was starting to get a bit cold, so he figured he would come out the sunny side to get some heat in the cockpit. He came out of the cloud expecting to get some sun, but was now in the shadow of a huge object. We asked him what did he do. His comment was he went back in the cloud, hoping he wasn't seen by them. He was noted for always carrying a camera, so we asked if he got a picture. His comment was, "I didn't have a camera, and now ya know why I always fly with one now. He described the object of being to big to fly, and we don't have anything like this that we could get off the ground. This was back in the 70s. (Name removed) was a glider pilot in the 2nd World War and as for trying to keep his health so he could keep flying until he was in his 60s, was interesting. He's in his late 90s now, and in the Spring you'll find him at the air port still doing the thing he loves the most. I personally think he got zapped, 95 years old and still flying. He fly's the tow plane when it's his turn, and still gives instructions.

Thank you to the person for relating an interesting sighting.
