Russian pilots have reported seeing UFOs and one even claimed to have had a dogfight with one.
Professor Felix Zigel of Moscow’s aviation institute remarked:
“His name was Arkady Apraksin. He was flying a jet fighter when he encountered a cigar shaped UFO. Radar had also spotted it, and he was ordered to force it to land, or open fire.”.
“Apraxin began his approach, but the mystery craft fired a fan shaped beam which momentarily blinded him and killed his controls and the engine. He had to glide into a landing.”
On June 14, 1980, another soviet flier reported a UFO above Moscow that played cat and mouse with him.
“It’s maneuvers where too weird for our jet to duplicate.”
Said professor Zigel.
The pilot described the craft as circular and almost 900 ft. wide.
Captain Vladimir Dubstov claims to have seen a similar craft flying below him as he flew patrol over the Arctic Ocean, he changed course to circle it.
“He told me it was truly immense.” Said professor Zigel. “A cone of light protruded down from it and gave it an eerie appearance, but it showed no signs of life. Then Dubstovs instruments went haywire and he lost altitude. The UFO took of vertically and soared past him, leaving behind a greenish-blue Cloud. Dubstov nursed his crippled jet home and reported the incident
