RAAF MILITARY PILOT REPORTS SPOTTING TWO UFO’S OVER AUSTRALIA
On 16 December 1954, The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Nowra Naval Air Station went on alert to watch for unidentified flying objects after a RAAF pilot had reported two flying saucers three months earlier on 31 August.
“Officers at the station said this today during an inspection of the station by the Minister for the Navy, Mr J. Francis.
“Apart from admitting that the objects had been seen, naval officers told journalists accompanying Mr Francis that investigations into the incident were ‘secret’. The station still has not established the nature of the objects seen three months ago,” the Herald reported.
The pilot who reported the UFOs was flying a Sea Fury at night in the Goulburn area.
“He said the objects were lighted. They travelled faster than his aircraft [220 knots] and passed him, flying close to his aircraft at about 15,000 feet. While inflight the pilot reported the objects to the Nowra station by radio.
“Radar operators then tracked the Sea Fury and did locate two other objects in flight. Inquiries later established that there were no aircraft flying in the area at the time. The pilot has since made a full report on the incident to senior officers at Nowra.”
This significant UFO case involving experienced RAAF personnel was investigated by Bill Chalker and the Sea Fury pilot, Lt. J.A O’Farrell was interviewed by famed US UFO investigator Dr Hyneck on his visit to Australia in 1973. NOTE: The above image is a rendering of a Sea Fury military aircraft.
