My first "meeting" with the unidentified flying objects took place
somewhere in the skies of Ukraine. I was in a Russian airplane on my way back from Moscow
to Belgrade. Two friends of mine and I just finished our visit to some Russian companies
as members of the official Bosnian business delegation.
It was a sunny morning on November 28, 1982. In one moment the captain of
our airplane informed us that we were flying over Ukraine around nine thousand meters
high. Suddenly, the people in the left side of the airplane started to move from seat to
seat around the windows. It was obvious something unusual was happening outside. My
friends and I jumped from our seats and attached ourselves to them. Stewardesses tried to
keep the situation under control, but it wasn't easy. In one window I found
a little space
for my eyes and I saw it. Several hundred meters from the airplane a group of light-green
balls were flying in the aircraft's direction. Their speed was the same as ours. There
were eight balls making a true circle and all of them were the same size and same shape.
Later my friends and I concluded that each had a diameter around 15-20 meters. To me they
looked like flying objects thrown into light-green cloudlets, although I didn't have a
chance to see any objects inside.
"Impossible! I always thought UFOs were a figure of one's imagination!"
- I heard one colleague say to the other in astonishment.
"I can't believe!" – the first fellow whispered
near my ear.
I didn't make a comment, but I always believed we are not alone in the cosmos and
I had hoped in my life that I would see undoubted sign of intelligent beings from another
In the airplane tension was rising very fast. Soon I heard the voice of our
captain. He said:" Everything is OK and we are secure". I didn't observe any
element of panic in his voice. He explained: "Those objects on our left side are
unidentified flying objects. For sure they are not from our planet, but their mission is
The captain was hurrying to tell us that's not the first time that similar objects
came close to our aircraft and we should be certain everything is under control. In the
end, he informed us that Russian war planes are behind us and the UFOs and their leader
gave us his guarantee that we are secure and we can continue our flight. I actually saw
several war planes behind us in the formation of a crescent moon .
That situation lasted 5-6 minutes and suddenly the UFOs disappeared like light
from a bulb when you turn off the switch. We tried to find them in the sky around the
airplane, but they had definitely disappeared. The war planes were gone also but we saw
how they were changing their course and flying further and further on both sides of our
Our captain often gave us information that our meeting with the UFOs passed and
the official details about our flight. At the Airport Belgrade I saw some passengers
speaking to journalists and very soon my friends and I were rushing by car to go to the
interior of the Balkans.
