The Foo Fighters of World War II

clipped from
December 22, 1944: The pilot of the Allied
plane was nervous. He was at 10,000 feet, over enemy territory.
Somewhere hidden in the black sky there was sure to be German
fighter aircraft. He scanned the darkness looking for trouble.
Suddenly he saw two large, orange glowing balls approaching
him. His radio operator saw them too. They didn't look like
enemy fighters, but neither did they look like anything he'd
ever seen.
The balls suddenly leveled off and started
following the plane. The pilot decided to try and lose them
with evasive maneuvers. He put his plane into a steep dive.
The objects immediately followed. Next he tried a sharply banked
turn. The objects stayed with him. For several more minutes
the pilot used his best tricks to lose his pursuers and failed.
When he was about to give up suddenly the objects were gone,
disappearing suddenly into the night. During he whole incident
not a shot was fired.
Another encounter was described by Major William
