Crew remember the day UFO was spotted over Kaikōura 40 years on
|It was New Year’s Day, 1979, when the world awoke to the news that strange lights had been spotted by six people on a plane off the New Zealand’s South Island.||
Was it a UFO? No, said the skeptics. It was Venus, it was squid boats, it was radar returns from a field of cabbages.
But 40 years later, the two pilots and four passengers are adamant it was none of the above and are frustrated at being unable to find answers.
