Early on the
morning of 31 December 1978, Melbourne television journalist Quentin
Fogarty was traveling with a film crew on an Argosy freight aircraft off
the New Zealand coast. They
noticed bright objects in the sky and filmed them.
After months of research,
American scientists agreed that a light source captured on the film
could not be explained by explained by conventional means. NICAP, the
organisation which over a period of twenty-two years had investigated
20,000 reported UFO sightings, for the very first time endorsed the film
as showing a genuine flying object.
