Florida Governor Haydon Burns UFO Encounter
On April 25, 1966 a UFO paced Florida Governor Haydon Burns' campaign plane for 40 miles over North Florida. The UFO was also witnessed by a group of officials and newsmen from the Miami Herald and Tampa Tribune who were on board.
Co-pilot Herb Bates first noticed the UFO as the Convair took off from Orlando headed for Tallahassee.
"We've got a UFO out there," Gov. Haydon Burns shouted.
Actually, there were two yellow globes of light, side by side. They paced the 230-mph speed of the governor's Convair, but did make some minor changes in position. Walking back into the cabin he told us: "I'm going to order the pilot to turn into it." The UFO then climbed steeply and disappeared in response to the turn.
