THE REPORT:
 
Flight crew of a Philippine Airlines flight bound for Manila encounters two strange "lights" and then a huge UFO over the Pacific some 1.5 hours away from Honolulu (Hawaii), and bound for Manila, PHILIPPINES.
 
WITNESS NARRATIVE STATEMENT:
 

PACIFIC OCEAN NEAR 180 DEGREES EAST - First Officer Arturo E. Buenaventura reports that in 1992, at 3:00 AM we were flying at 31,000 feet westbound for Manila when we saw two exceptionally bright lights like an incoming aircraft. It then disappeared.

 

After a while, a huge UFO appeared on the left side of our aircraft flying formation. It was enormous and had numerous lights and 'antenna.' The closest description I can give is that it was similar to the UFO in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." I was the First Officer on that particular flight. We never saw it approach us, it simply appeared off our wing. Then, as suddenly as it appeared, it disappeared like it had gone into another dimension.

 

This incident was witnessed by four aircrafts at that time. One was a Military Airlift Command's aircraft, a Continental Airlines jet, and two 747 aircraft Philippine Airlines Flights that had a stopover in Honolulu. We were about 1& 1/2 hours away from Honolulu bound for Manila..
