Some of the crew members reported vaguely perceiving a connecting structure between the two lights. The lights hovered for about a minute, pulsating, then moved down toward the plane and assumed a position off the left wing for another minute or two. As it paced the airliner, the object emitted a V-shaped pair of thin light beams upwards, then later downwards. Finally it accelerated, pulled away, and climbed rapidly out over the Pacific to the west and disappeared in the distance.
Capt. Millbank stated, "In 26 years of flying I have never seen anything like this before." Second Officer J.D. Dahl said, "In my opinion, the only answer to this sighting is a craft with speed and controllability unknown to us."11
