By Jack Brummet

Thanks to Jeff Clinton for digging up this story.





On 21 October 1978, a 20-year-old pilot--Frederick Valentich--disappeared while flying his Cessna airplane near King Island, Australia.

The transcript that follows is from a program, Radio Eye, broadcast in 2008 by ABC Radio.

19:06:14 DSJ [Valentich]: Melbourne, this is Delta Sierra Juliet. Is there any known traffic below five thousand?


FS [Flight Services; Robey]: Delta Sierra Juliet, no known traffic.


DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, I am, seems to be a large aircraft below five thousand.


19:06:44 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, What type of aircraft is it?


DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, I cannot affirm, it is four bright, and it seems to me like landing lights.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.



19:07:31 DSJ: Melbourne, this is Delta Sierra Juliet, the aircraft has just passed over me at least a thousand feet above.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, and it is a large aircraft, confirmed?


DSJ: Er-unknown, due to the speed it's travelling, is there any air force aircraft in the vicinity?


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, no known aircraft in the vicinity.


19:08:18 DSJ: Melbourne, it's approaching now from due east towards me.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.


19:08:41 DSJ: (open microphone for two seconds.)


19:08:48 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, it seems to me that he's playing some sort of game, he's flying over me two, three times at speeds I could not identify.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, what is your actual level?


DSJ: My level is four and a half thousand, four five zero zero.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet and you confirm you cannot identify the aircraft?


DSJ: Affirmative.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, stand by.


19:09:27 DSJ: Melbourne, Delta Sierra Juliet, it's not an aircraft it is (open microphone for two seconds).


19:09:42 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, can you describe the - er - aircraft?


DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, as it's flying past it's a long shape (open microphone for three seconds) cannot identify more than it has such speed (open microphone for three seconds). It's before me right now Melbourne.


19:10 FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger and how large would the - er - object be?


19:10:19 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, Melbourne, it seems like it's chasing me.[20] What I'm doing right now is orbiting and the thing is just orbiting on top of me also. It's got a green light and sort of metallic like, it's all shiny on the outside.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet


19:10:46 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet (open microphone for three seconds) It's just vanished.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.


19:11:00 DSJ: Melbourne, would you know what kind of aircraft I've got? Is it a military aircraft?


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, Confirm the - er ~ aircraft just vanished.


DSJ: Say again.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, is the aircraft still with you?


DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet; it's (open microphone for two seconds) now approaching from the south-west.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet


19:11:50 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet, the engine is rough-idling. I've got it set at twenty three twenty-four and the thing is (coughing).


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet, roger, what are your intentions?


DSJ: My intentions are - ah - to go to King Island - ah - Melbourne. That strange aircraft is hovering on top of me again (open microphone for two seconds). It is hovering and (open microphone for one second) it's not an aircraft.


FS: Delta Sierra Juliet.


19:12:28 DSJ: Delta Sierra Juliet. Melbourne (open microphone for seventeen seconds).

[ed's note: during that seventeen seconds, you can hear metallic sounds, and a sort of scraping.  Then the transmission went dead.]
