A320: "Er not quite sure what it was but it definitely er quite large [1255:40] and it's blue and yellow"

UFO's would be unlikely to be blue and yellow, obviously something man made, I guess a balloon.

Right. Because, we all know aliens are color blind.
Who are we to say?

If I found correct information on converting nautical miles, I think you might have made an error converting seconds to hours. I am getting about 192.3 miles per hour. Either way, not a particularly fast aircraft.

(1.3*nautical*miles/((28*seconds)))*(6076*feet/(1*nautical*miles))*(1*miles/(5280*feet))*(60*seconds/minutes)*(60*minutes/hour) = 192.3409091 miles / hour.

I didn't do anything near that complicated I just said mm 60mph is 1 mile per minute added a extra 20mph for the .3 then forgot I needed the spped for approx. 30 sec posted it and ops i'm a bit out . I was thinking after I posted it was about 140-150 mph so i'm glad I put Sarge your math is better than mine as I figured you would be able to correct me and work it out properly....thank's

I seen my UFO about a year and a half ago and still today it still bothers me yet today. It was my one and only time but no one can tell me any different what I saw, many seen just the same. I was smart and wrote it down that night in a file.

That's not supposed to be complicated.
If there are extraterrestrial life forms, intelligent, and visiting, they may want to hold off a few centuries before making themselves known. We want to make sure everybody's got the basics of measurement, arithmetic and biology down! :)

Do we have anyone here from Snowflake, Arizona? This is based on a true story.

A group of men who were clearing bush for the government arrive back in town, claiming that their friend was abducted by aliens. Nobody believes them, and despite a lack of motive and no evidence of foul play, their friends' disappearance is treated as murder. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

This film recreates the strange events which happened November 5, 1975 in the town Snowflake, Arizona. Travis Walton works as a logger in the woods. When he and his colleagues drive home after work, they encounter an UFO. For the next five days Travis disappears and his colleagues are accused of murder. When he reappears, first he didn't remember that he was gone, but in time the terrible memories come back..

Coming home from work, the men come across an unidentified flying object on their drive home. Curious to learn more, Walton gets out of their truck and is struck by a beam of light from the object. Fearing Walton was just killed, the others flee the scene. Rogers decides to go back to the spot to retrieve Walton, but he is nowhere to be found. Making their way back to town to report the incident, the loggers are met with skepticism, as they relate what sounds like a tall tale to Sheriff Blake Davis (Noble Willingham) and Lieutenant Frank Watters (James Garner). They are suspected of foul play despite no apparent motive or knowledge of Walton's whereabouts.
