UFO Sighting from U.S.S. Constellation Aircraft Carrier,

Mr. Wes Penre
This is an e-mail that was sent to me from one of my
readers. He gave me permission to post it as-is.
If you're into homework1, you'll find my
story can be substantiated by confirming the whereabouts of the U.S.S.
Constellation (CV-64) (aircraft carrier) during the spring-summer of 1994. I worked in C.D.C.
(combat direction center). We
tracked [I assume on radar-CF-] an
unidentified contact traveling at impossible speed towards our ship.
It was first reported as an inbound missile, but was too fast. When we
expected impact, about one second of silence went over comm. Channels, then
screaming from the island [Main vertical
superstructure on the right (Starboard) of the flight deck-CF-] watches
This confusion lasted approx. 10-15 seconds then they
were all quiet. They
advised a large light hovering above the island [as
above] and as soon as it showed it went straight up vertical and went
out of sight. The watches were immediately relieved and de-briefed by
an IS (intelligence specialist)
and I (personally) made a log entry into a blue log book pulled from a safe
filled about 5-7 high ith (sic-with?)
other log books. "I proclaimed by (sic-?
my?) excitement as
was met with instant rebuke. I was asked if I knew what the craft was. I
advised an alien. I was advised it's un-identified, so log it correctly. I
flipped through half the book for the next open page. I made my log entry and
handed the book back, I was then told with utmost
seriousness and veiled threat, "Log it and forget it"
From quietly talking to other shipmates, I found this is
a normal occurrence in the military and that the punishment is extremely
severe and non-public. So I'm sure you will understand my need for anonymity.
And to you nay-sayers; if you
don't believe we are being observed.... I wished I lived in your dream world.

– Homework – I have used one main block of the ships history, below, which
has the most information on it, which will be in black text. All other texts
inserted will be in green so that they can be identified as additions.-CF- 1994 History:
Constellation – History for the period:
Following exercises with the air forces of several South
American countries while en route and preparations at Norfolk, Va.,
Constellation entered Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, Pa., in July to begin a
$800-million, three-year Service Life Extension Program (SLEP). Completed in
March 1993, the SLEP was a cross between new construction and a comprehensive
overhaul, designed to add 15 years to the carrier’s operational life.
Constellation conducted her post-SLEP shakedown with a number of CVW-17
squadrons then moored at Mayport, Fla., on 8 April.
With CVW-2 assigned, Connie departed Mayport on 29
May and conducted exercises with various South American air forces while en
route to San Diego,
where she arrived on 22 July 1993.
In 1994 it was decided to
make VF-2 one of only three squadrons that would be lucky enough to upgrade
to F-14D Super Tomcat. Having completed the transition the squadron was
assigned to the newly refurbished USS Constellation (CV-64) and as of March 1994
was completing carrier qualifications along with the rest of CVW-2.
and CVW-2 participated in RIMPAC exercises...
On 31 July 1994,
Lt. Kara Hultgreen made her first qualifying
landing in an F-14A on board Constellation, 110 miles southwest of San Diego. She thus became the first fully qualified female Tomcat pilot.
10 November departed San Diego for an extended deployment for the first time in six
years. Exercises off Okinawa were followed by a number of exercises off Korea—a
region that had once again become the focus of world attention with the news
that North Korea was attempting to develop nuclear weapons.
