Who, apart from yourself in post #1 above and the topic title, are you quoting here? The claim, "on a daily basis" is extraordinary, where is the evidence?

There are far more people flying at 30,000 ft than there are military personnel. There are no 'daily basis' reports from them. I wonder why?

For SciFi entertainment I watch the SYFY channel. If there is not much SciFi of interest on I look at the so-called History channel.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

Pilots do not have sufficient information about phenomena of disorientation, and, as a corollary, are given considerable disorganized, incomplete, and inaccurate information. They are largely dependent upon their own experience, which must supplement and interpret the traditions about "Vertigo" which are passed on to them. When a concept thus grows out of anecdotes cemented together with practical necessity, it is bound to acquire elements of mystery. So far as "vertigo" is concerned, no one really knows more than a small part of the facts, but a great deal of the peril. Since aviators are not skilled observers of human behavior, they usually have only the vaguest understanding of their own feelings. Like other naive persons, therefore, they have simply adopted a term to cover a multitude of otherwise inexplicable events.

It's funny how in the past, we'd not posit incredible powers of observation and analysis in pilots which is standard Discovery Channel style fare today, and nearly universally the first go-to argument of every would-be alien visitation proponent.


These are not amateur pilots.


Who said they were amateur pilots?

No one.

And that's relevant because...?

Because they weren't accepted in the military as pilots on the basis of being able to identify unidentifiable phenomena?

And who said they were 'mistaken'?

Perhaps you can conduct the discussion with yourself as you seem to be trying to fulfill both aspects of the conversation.

The Discovery Channel has a lot to answer for in ushering in the Disinformation Age.
