Fran Ridge:
In reading the documents one gets a slightly different synopsis than the one presented by Brad Sparks, but not enough to change the record or analysis. In any case the information variation is not due to the analysts, but the person writing the original reports.

Dan Wilson:
Sept. 15, 1968; W of Cross City to 12 miles W of Ocala, FL (BBU 12498)
At 9:30 p.m. EDT, a civilian pilot and co-pilot flying a Twin Beech C45H aircraft observed a light doing acrobatics in the sky near Ocala for 15 minutes, but they did not gain on it. The light rose and quickly disappeared among the stars.  Almost immediately a second white light was seen under the haze above Ocala.  This light came toward the plane on a collision course. The object at times would move off to the side and set motionless.  The object would come straight in towards the plane and then veer off.  The pilots said the object was extremely high speed and changed altitudes. As the plane flew towards Miami to the south they continued to have observations.  It was about the time when the flight went under Approach Control in the Palm Beach area, Patrick AFB had a radar pick up on the object.  Later as the plane was approaching Miami, Palm Beach Center informed them that their radar had an object following the plane.  The plane was asked to make a 360 degree turn to see if they could get a visual sighting on the object.  When the turn was made the pilots did see a bright light which was out in front of the plane at approximately 1000 feet. The total length of all the observations was 45 minutes.
