Quote from the article, ‘HIDDEN REPORT – Pilot ‘Dog-Fights’ A UFO’: “The former AF pilot is now a captain on a major airline. Because of the airline’s policy, he had to remain anonymous as he described – off camera – his 12-year-old sighting.

At the time of the encounter, he and another AF pilot were flying F-86-D jet interceptors over the central San Joaquin Valley of California. After the Castle AFB tower asked if he could detect a UFO he saw a circular, luminescent object which he estimated as between 50 and 100 feet in diameter. As be tried to close in, with the second F-86, the UFO dived into a cloud.

In an attempt to box in the unknown object one pilot flew above the cloud, the other below it. A ‘dog-fight’ between cloud layers resulted, with the UFO ascending and descending vertically ‘at quite a speed.’

For a brief period, the captain reported, he got a radar lock-on to the object. As this happened, the UFO appeared to contract and fade away. At other times, he said, the object apparently would allow them to approach to a certain distance and then maneuver up and down to keep them from getting too close. Near the end of the encounter, the UFO reversed the chase pattern, following the second F-86 before finally disappearing upward into the clouds.

Details of the sighting were reported to Castle AFB.”
