Paranormal Experience: A dogfight with a U.F.O..
It was a quiet night in Louisville when police pilots Kenny Graham and Kenny Downs took their helicopter up to run a routine patrol. About an hour into their patrol, they got word that there was a robbery in progress, and headed off. Just as they arrived at the scene, the radio informed them it was a false alarm.
The team decided to head back to the heliport for a break. On the way, Downs spotted something that looked like a tower. When Graham took a look, he discovered it was pear-shaped, glowing, and most assuredly not a tower.
The object rose to an altitude almost level with the helicopter before stopping, almost as though it were sizing up the other aircraft. According to Downs, it then moved to the right, and to the left, before returning to a hover. In the blink of an eye, the craft shot off at a speed Graham estimated had to be over 600 miles/hour.
No sooner did it disappear from the two pilots' sight than it returned just as fast.
Joe Smolenski, another member of the Louisville police department, spotted the helicopter hovering. On the assertion that there might be something chasing the helicopter, Smolenski came over to investigate. He said he could see the light all around the copter.
The craft began to circle the helicopter. Graham, afraid that it might hit their tail rotor, began trying to evade the thing.
Smolenski followed the helicopter as far as he could as Graham tried to evade, but eventually he could not keep up.
That was when the craft began shooting what Graham described as "fireballs" at them. Each shot was equidistant from the last. Graham used every bit of his piloting skills to evade the shots. After one particularly steep maneuver, Graham brought the helicopter back around to bear, only to have nothing in his sights. The craft had disappeared.
Graham and Downs tried their best to say it wasn't a UFO, but they couldn't do it.
