Subject: Fw: An Australian pilot and his plane disappeared after being apparently chased by a UFO!
On October 21, 1978 at 7:21 PM, 20-year-old Frederick Valentich vanished. He was piloting a Cessna 182L aircraft over the Bass Strait in Australia. During his 127 mile journey, Valentich had told Melbourne air traffic control that he was being accompanied by a strange aircraft.
It was hovering about 1,000 feet above him. He began to report some odd happenings and said that his engine started acting up. He described a shiny metal aircraft “orbiting” above him that had a green light. He then said that the “strange aircraft is hovering over me again. It is hovering and it’s not an aircraft.”
There was then about 17 seconds of a metallic scraping noise and then they lost contact. Valentich and his plane were never found. The Australian Department of Transportation could not come up with a reason for the disappearance.
