Quote from the article (Page 5):
“Japan Airlines pilot Kenju Terauchi made headlines again Tuesday (January 1987) with his second reported UFO sighting over Alaska.

But unidentified flying objects are old news to Bay Area United Airlines pilot Bob Wollow, who says he saw his first UFO outside the cockpit window more than 10 years ago.

The 36-year-old Mountain View resident was a Naval pilot trainee then, stationed in Texas. During an otherwise uneventful flight through clear evening skies near Seattle, Wollow said. ‘My co-pilot looked outside his side window and pointed to what looked like a huge, really bright headlight up in the sky.

‘We started to head after it, but it was moving incredibly fast. Then we blinked our eyes, and it was gone.’

Other pilots in the area excitedly radioed air control to report similar sightings, Wollow recalled.

Chris Zwingle, Bay Area safety coordinator for the Airline Pilots Association, agreed that UFO sightings are far from rare among his professional peers. ‘I’ve flown with a number of men I consider reliable pilots who say they’ve seen them, and I found what they said highly credible.”
