Alien Abduction In The Sky?
What Happened To Australian Pilot,  Frederick Valentich?

By Dorraine Fisher

Frederick Valentich wasn’t a military man. He was no one special or significant. But in October, 1978, this Australian pilot  boarded a Cessna single-engine 182L plane for a routine cargo flight of 235 kilometers (about 146 miles) over Bass Strait, Australia. It was a day that started out like any other day, but as it turned out, he would never make it back.

According to the flight service officer at the time, Steve Robey,  Valentich gave a rather routine position report and was flying under 5000 feet. But after that, things got very strange.  Less than an hour into the flight, he started reporting that his engine was running rough and a strange aircraft was hovering about 300 meters above him. The following is the actual transcript of the exchange between Robey and Valentich:

Transcript of Frederick Valentich’s Final Communications with Melbourne Air Traffic Control.

9:07:32 DSJ FS Melbourne, this (is) Delta Sierra Juliet. The aircraft has just passed over me at least a thousand feet above.
9:07:43 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet—Roger—and it, it is a large aircraft—confirm?

9:08:49 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet. It seems to me that he’s playing some sort of game.’—He’s flying over me two—three times at a time at speeds I could not identify.’

9:09:52 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet… as its flying past it’s a long shape’ //open microphone for three seconds // (cannot) identify more than that. It has such speed //open microphone for three seconds //. It is before me right now Melbourne.’
9:10:07 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet—Roger. And how large would the —er—object be?
9:10:20 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet—Melbourne. It seems like it’s (stationary). Transcript of Frederick Valentich’s Final Communications with Melbourne Air Traffic Control 2 of 2 [The author, Richard F Haines (USA) has determined that this word should be, ‘chasing me’, based on special filtering]. 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.~
9:10:43 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet.
9:10:48 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet // open microphone for 5 seconds // [measured as 3 seconds] It’s just vanished.’
9:10:57 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet.
9:11:03 DSJ FS Melbourne would you know what kind of aircraft I’ve got?’ It is (a type) military aircraft?’
9:11:08 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet. Confirm the… er—aircraft just vanished.
9:11:14 DSJ FS Say again.
9:11:17 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet. Is the aircraft still with you?’
9:11:23 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet… It’s ah… Nor //open microphone for two seconds// (now) approaching from the southwest.
9:11:37 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet.
9:11:52 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet - The engine is, is rough idling. —I’ve got it set at twenty three—twenty four… and the thing is—coughing.
9:12:04 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet—Roger. What are your intentions?
9:12:09 DSJ FS 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 it’s not an aircraft.
9:12:22 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet.
9:12:28 DSJ FS Delta Sierra Juliet—Melbourne //open microphone for 17 seconds// [A very strange pulsed noise is also audible during this transmission.]
9:12:49 FS DSJ Delta Sierra Juliet, Melbourne. End of official DoT transcript Key — normal pause in communications (based on the first author’s flying experience) … longer than normal pause (several seconds) ‘ upward ending voice inflection (such as an interrogative question) ~ downward voice inflection Parentheses ( ) enclose words that are open to interpretation because they are not clearly audible Brackets [ ] enclose the authors’ comments.

Robey reported a strange, unidentifiable pulsing sound that was the last thing he heard over the transmission. This was the last communication anyone would have with Valentich. He disappeared without a trace.

Here is a video with Robey about the event.

What do you think happened? Was he abducted by an alien craft? Or something else?
