OCTOBER 21, 1978……..FLIGHT FROM MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA
Frederick Valentich was a twenty-year-old member of the training corps of the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force)in 1978. On October 21, 1978, between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., Frederick took off from Moorabbin Airport, a suburban Airport of the city of Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, Australia. His aircraft was a single-engine Cessna 182. It had enough fuel for five hours flying time. The destination of Frederick’s final flight was King Island, but his motivation for the flight is unknown. He told flight officials that he was going to King Island to pick up some friends, while he told others that he was going to pick up crayfish. Frederick had also failed to inform King Island Airport of his intention to land there, going against “standard procedure.” At approximately 7:12 p.m., Frederick contacted air traffic control and reported that an unidentified flying object (UFO) was following him at 4500 feet.
He also reported that the object passed about 100 feet overhead and was moving at high speed. He described the craft as having a shiny metal surface with a green light on top. When asked to try and identify the aircraft, he stated: “It’s not an aircraft.” The transmission was interrupted by a “scraping metallic sound.” That was the last anyone heard from Frederick Valentich again. A sea and air search was undertaken that encompassed over 1000 square miles; however, no aircraft debris or body was ever recovered. The incident received national and international attention, because not only was a UFO report recorded on tape by air traffic control but there was no sign of the pilot and his aircraft.
