- NOTE - Kal Korff is coming back to ufology after two
years off. He is currently living and writing in Prague. Somehow, he got
to the Hungarian government and BOUGHT a copy of the video. He and SZILARD
are now associates. Kal is coming on the program March first and will be
sending exclusive NEW images of this story.
- Dear Jeff,
- (snip) I have visited your web site and must inform you
that the images were not reversed. I think after translation I understand
what is said, but you should know that the pilot was busy filming the object
and the image does move from left to right and go out of view, so I think
this is obvious fact. If the disk were not moving, it would not go out
of view as it does. Yes the object no question slow down, but the pilot
was busy filming and not paying attention to anything but his filming.
For what it is worth, I can also inform you that after the disk went out
of the camera view he looked up and it was gone, he never saw it again.
- The shape is obviously a flat disk, it is no a blimp
and every Hungarian knows that such blimps do not fly over Budapest. I
do not mean to insult your colleague, please understand.
- I am sure that the Ministry of Defence will deny this
filming and say they know nothing about it, but I would not be involved
if it did not happen and my job as the attorney is to try and protect my
client and honor his wish to see the video released."

- (English translation)
- BUDAPEST, Hungary - A military
pilot recorded a spectacular video of a silver disk object on September
29, 2001. The craft was flying to his left side and then moved very fast
past him in the clouds as can be seen in the video.
- "I was on a flight over Budapest, Hungary,"
said the pilot, who has requested that his name be withheld until the official
inquiry by the Hungarian Ministry of Defence is complete.
- "To my left I saw a bright metal aircraft that was
the shape of a perfect disk. I was careful to film the object, not to try
and chase it since it I could not match its speed. As I was flying a reconnaisance
aircraft, I got the idea to film it and used our equipment."
Note: The above images have been compressed for webviewing
from a larger format and therefore cannot be used for analysis.
Please do not send analysis as it will not be credible under compression.
- Officials at the Ministry of Defence would not answer
questions about the video when asked and warned that officially they have
no comment. Despite the denial, when informed of the pilot's name, they
did acknowledge that the he was a real air force pilot and that it was
true that he flew photo reconnaisance airplanes.
- The pilot considers the video he made to be his property
and not the Hungarian governments as he was flying the plane while not
on duty and was transporting it as a favor to save the government money.
He has now hired an attorney and wants the video to be released to the
public. He hopes the release of a few frames will make this happen.

- From: Harry Taggart,
I am also a pilot with 30 years experience and a former air traffic
controller. I find the still clips of the Hungarian UFO fascinating and
believe the Hungarian pilot's explanation of filming while flying "left
to right" is the correct point of view and the 1-2-3 sequence provided
IS probably reversed. The cloud development seems to be consistent with
the UFO traveling from right to left as the observation plane travels from
left to right. Cloud details in a reversed, or 3-2-1 sequence show degradation
and loss of definition, as would be expected. If Stephen Smith's analysis
were correct, the cloud mass would be shrinking and forming clear edges.
In all my years of flying I've never seen clouds compress. Good luck obtaining
the video. I'd be anxious to see more.

- Hi Jeff,
There is no doubt, in my mind, that the pilot's (JR's) statements are correct.
The Hungarian pilot was flying on a course almost parallel to the course
of the UFO, but slightly to the right of the UFO's course. He photographed
out of the left side of his aircraft. The UFO was faster and therefore
moved out ahead of the Hungarian pilot's aircraft. In my opinion, there
is no reversal involved in this presentation, nor is there any other "Hanky
Panky" involved. I carefully examined the clouds in the three pics
and they did what clouds do, as you fly by them. This is a fine example
of an UFO experience and it was much fun to see.
