Sighting From Above

This sighting occurred in the summer of 1982. The witness, Mr. Wade, was on a flight from Prince Rupert to Vancouver on the port (left) side of the aircraft, in a window seat. Approximately half way between Prince Rupert and Vancouver he noticed a white spherical object off the port (left) wing and pacing the aircraft. He shifted his position and viewing angle to determine if it was a reflection. The object was determined to be real. The object was in view for many seconds, probably about one half minute. The object then made an abrupt turn and sped off towards the mountains where it disappeared. When the object turned and sped off, the occupant of the seat behind him muttered a loud exclamation but Mr. Wade did not ask this person if he had observed the object. This was the first time that Mr. Wade has spoken to anyone about the sighting.
