Just a while ago, Kurt Russell explained his amazing UFO sighting experience that happened over Phoenix in Arizona on BBC One’s, The One Show.
Russell is one of the main roles in the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was recently premiered. With his fellow-colleague Chris Pratt, he aired on the famous “The One Show” to endorse his newest piece.
However, during the show, the host named Gyles Brandreth brought into a light a wrapper marked as Top Secret. The host added he explored the global news excerpts for a story they both actors could be curious about.
Brandreth revealed the story in the excerpt that talked about an anonymous pilot who was flying with his private jet together with his son nearby an airport in Phoenix. Suddenly, he detected six lights in the dark sky and he quickly reported the event to the control tower. The tower, however, responded there were no other planes in that area.
At the story’s ending, he fiercely declared: “Mystery unresolved!”
During the storytelling, Pratt listened but didn’t show any specific reaction, while Russell smiled modestly. When the finale came, Russell hopped in.
“The tail number for that plane was Bonanza two Tango Sierra, and I was the pilot,” said Russell and left the public amazed. Pratt didn’t know this detail either as he reacted surprised too.
Moreover, Kurt Russell revealed that he and Oliver Hudson, his stepson, were flying into Phoenix so the young boy visits his girlfriend.
“We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” added Russell.
He continued his story saying Oliver asked him if he was aware of what the lights could be, and he didn’t respond but rather immediately called the control tower. When he got a response that they don’t detect any other aircrafts, he stated it was something unidentifiable.
After they landed and Hudson was gone, Russell returned back to Los Angeles. According to them, they never spoke about the situation, not until two years later. Russell said that he came home one day to see a TV show that was talking about a UFO incident that took place in Phoenix.
“That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” said Russell.
Furthermore, he checked his log books to assure himself if the flight was at the exact same time as the UFO encounter.
“The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” Russell spoke to the public.
Possibly, this was the first time ever Russell told his mysterious story in public since he wasn’t connected with the famous Phoenix UFO sighting that happened in 1997.
