Sept. 20, 1966; Sebring, Florida
10:00 a.m. local. James J. O'Connor, private pilot, attorney and former Army investigator, was flying at 9,500 feet (about 3 km) near Sebring, Florida, when he saw what first appeared to be a delta-shaped object overhead. Curious, he climbed toward the object but levelled off at about 10,000 feet due to lack of oxygen equipment. Suddenly the object descended toward his plane and began pacing him, its huge size blocking out the sunlight.It made a "singing" noise like automobile tires on a wet pavement.
