While on a routine training flight off the Turkish Aegean coastal town of Candarli, two Turkish air force trainee pilots saw a bright object that approached their plane at high speed and reportedly gyrated around them for about a half hour.
The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported this call: "Object approaching the wings. Now it's behind the plane ... now it's in front of us."
They told their controller and the regional war alert center of the Turkish army that the UFO had an unusual shape that looked like a cross between a cone and a disc.
Turkish air force sources say they are investigating. So are the neighboring Greeks. The Turks are planning to report the encounter to international organizations, including NASA.
