When a massive UFO buzzed an Airline over Alaska

Over 30 years ago on the 17th of November, Japan Air Lines flight 1628 was on a routine flight from France to Japan overflying Alaska; when it encountered a massive object in plain sight of the cargo aircraft’s Pilot and crew.

This event now famously called the JAL 1628 incident changed the paradigm about UFO encounters. Not that there were no previous encounters between airlines and UFO’s; yet this incident was reported by the Pilot to the FAA and the event got etched in UFO history as one of the most credible sightings.

Besides the Pilot reporting the UFO encounter, the Air Route Traffic Control Center in Anchorage, Alaska, also acknowledged sighting of the UFO on its radars. Read more

Show Notes 263: Mark O’Connell

YouTube Live Stream Wednesday, August 2nd at 8:00PM to 10:00PM EST


Mick West from Metabunk.org discusses the debunking of the “Nazca Three-Fingered Alien” and Mark O’Connell talks about his recent book on J. Allen Hynek, The Close Encounters Man.

Bio: Mark O’Connell broke into the television business writing several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. His DS9 episode “Who Mourns For Morn?” was named by Hugo Award-winning science fiction writer Charlie Jane Anders as #72 on the io9.com list of the Top 100 Star Trek episodes of all time. Mark has had feature film projects optioned and/or in development with Disney, DreamWorks Animation, Barcelona Films, Endless Entertainment Group and Al Ruddy Productions.

Looking for a way to explore new media markets and experiences, Mark started the UFO blog “High Strangeness” (www.highstrangenessufo.com). Taking an off-center approach to the phenomenon, High Strangeness dared to embrace the weirdness and brought a new, often comedic sensibility to the rather self-serious field of UFOlogy. He made his reality TV debut in 2015 in “Mysteries at the Monument” on The Travel Channel, discussing the ties between Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, the Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and the UFO work of Dr. Hynek. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife, Monica, and teaches screenwriting at DePaul University in Chicago. He is available for media.
