Here's some more ignorant and possibly drunk, donut eating eyewitness.

To match the speed of the aircraft from their sideways approach, the objects displayed what Terauchi described as a disregard for inertia
: "The thing was flying as if there was no such thing as gravity. It sped up, then stopped, then flew at our speed, in our direction, so that to us it [appeared to be] standing still. The next instant it changed course. ... In other words, the flying object had overcome gravity."
The "reverse thrust" caused a bright flare for 3 to 7 seconds,
to the extent that captain
Terauchi could feel the warmth of their glows.

I'm a pilot and I know just about every machine that flies. It was bigger than anything that I've ever seen. It remains a great mystery. Other people saw it, responsible people. I don't know why people would ridicule it.Gordon Cooper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
—Fife Symington III,
He held claim until his death that the government
is indeed covering up information about UFOs. He gives the example of President Harry Truman
who said on April 4, 1950, "I can assure you that flying saucers
, given that they exist, are not constructed by any power on Earth." He also pointed out that there were hundreds of reports made by his fellow pilots
, many coming from military jet
pilots sent to respond to radar
or visual sightings from the ground. He was quite convinced till the day he died that he had seen UFOs and was a strong advocate to make the government come clean with what it knew.
Jimmy Carter UFO incident - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The sighting is said to have had a personal impact on Carter and his perception of UFO and UFO sightings. During his 1976 election campaign, he is said to have told reporters that, as a result of it, he would institute a policy of openness if he were elected to office, saying:
"One thing's for sure, I'll never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified objects in the sky. If I become President, I'll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists." 
Despite his earlier pledge, once elected, Carter distanced himself from disclosure, citing "defense implications" as being behind his decision.
Open your minds people. A lot of stuff can happen in 13 billion years.
