Last week, AVweb asked how many of you have seen unidentified flying objects in our skies.

Yes, we asked about UFOs.  And to our surprise, nearly half of AVweb readers reported having some sort of UFO encounter 44% of those who participated in the survey.

Of that 44%, one in four respondents insisted that the craft they saw was definitely not of terrestrial origin.  The other respondents were a little more hesitant, admitting only that they had seen an object in the sky they couldn't identify.

Overall, one in ten AVweb readers claims to have seen a UFO of extraterrestrial origin at some point!


As the U.S. military demand for airspace increases, GA airspace becomes increasingly taxed (with military aircraft operations).  One AVweb reader asks, "Should the military be allowed to take over any more airspace without giving up an equivalent amount?
"I suggest this because today the military has far fewer operation aircraft and flying squadrons than they did during the Cold War," he writes.  "In addition, many of the units are deployed overseas supporting operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc."
