COAST, 1978:

Early on the morning of 31 December 1978, Melbourne television journalist Quentin Fogarty was traveling with a film crew from a local New Zealand television station that chartered an Argosy freight aircraft to fly them across a disputed UFO sighting area off the New Zealand coast. They noticed bright objects in the sky and filmed them. Air traffic controllers confirmed their sighting as they tracked the object on radar.

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.

The UFO was filmed while the team were flying over the Kaikoura region of New Zealand's South Island. Aviation authorities reported that the UFO was apparently tracked by radar and the Royal New Zealand Air Force put a Skyhawk jet fighter on special standby alert. The pilot of the news team's plane said he first noticed a bright white light about 20 miles ahead, and "It appeared to stay still until we got within 10 miles, then it turned with us as I changed course. It then went above us and circled and came down beneath us. It was making definite movements in relation to us."
