Sinister Object In The Sky

October 31, 2009

in Odds & Ends Stories

I’ve often wondered if any airline passengers of faith have seen strange or sinister objects in the sky.

Many years ago, on a Honolulu to Papatee (Tahiti) flight, I was peering mindlessly out of the windscreen into the moonlit night sky when something strange caught my eye. Borrowing First Navigation Officer T. Nolte’s binoculars, I proceeded to carefully and methodically scan the horizon line. After a moment or two, a tiny, bright orange dot flared up and then quickly faded into a darkening mass. I focused in on the object and to my utter horror and dismay saw what appeared to be a large, dark animal (demonic?) cruising (flying?) just above a Cirrus cloud layer about 2 miles out. In quiet desperation I then closed my eyes and said a prayer to God, and ordered this entity to be gone from my sight.

When I opened my eyes, all I saw was the placid night sky, resplendent with a scattering of stars and an ivory colored waxing gibbous moon. The entity was nowhere to be seen and had obviously been thwarted by the power of my prayer to Almighty God.

Have any Christian passengers (or pilots) here ever seen anything similar?

GOD bless you-

Captain A. Griego

My advice is to lay off the lsd, meth, angel dust, or any other hallucinign before flying you crazed bible thumper.. have you thought of the following.. laser pointers, flash lights, or fireworks? before you started on this jesus shit? Get a brain… it wasn't the devil. I would be more terrified to be flying with you than the devil himself.

So you closed your eyes and the thing you hallucinated disappeared? And you think that had something to with a few words you mumbled under your breath?? Please don't fly under the influence. Its not safe for the passengers on the plane!

You wanna be a pilot? I always thought pilots are trained in a fair amount of science, esp. physics. Ever heard how a fata morgana comes to be? Small objects in the distance can appear gigantic by optical effects of layers of air of different temperatures above the surface, not only in the desert. There may be other possible explanations. I'm always amazed by people who can't get themselves to exhaust every reasonable assumption before believing in supernatural manifestations, and even more amazed how they manage to end up in a seat where they are responsible for other people's lives. Which airline are you on so that I know which one to avoid? The great scholars from Darwin to Dawkins will forgive you. Weirdness is part of evolution, too. Oh, I forgot. You were asking only for feedback from those "of faith".

your website pretty much exposes you as a fraud. Your story of how you fell asleep in the cockpit and the plane landed itself is pure BS. Your story of crashing a stolen helicopter into a school may or may not be true (I doubt it). But let's say it is. Your lack of comprehension about why the authorities took away your flight privledges show you lack the intelligence to be a commercial pilot. Your story here simply didn't happen except in your imagination.

I'm sure you will take this as an attack on your Christian faith, but it's not. I don't care what is your faith. You are welcome to it. This is an attack on your credibility, plain and simple.

This web page seems to have attracted the feak show. People, stop using theis webstie for fiction.

I was going to make a serious comment about the mental state of this poster. I really, really tried. But then I gave up. He's a loon and there's absolutely nothing that I can do about it. I hope your 'God' likes me enough to keep me the hell away from whatever aircraft you are piloting, Captain. It makes me angry that someone like you has somehow earned their wings, while my education and passion for flying has gotten me nowhere closer to the flight deck than economy.

Fiction or not, you've made me angry. And as this was the first story that I came across here, I simply have to laugh at how wrong the FAQ was. This site, so far, hasn't relieved my bitterness. But in the last hour, it's at least given me a few laughs.

It might simply have been a military aircraft. Most of the stealth-types look like they're "superimposed" on the sky because they are coated with the black non-reflective radar absorbing paint. The "flash" could easily have been the plane's pilot hitting the afterburner, which also explains how it disappeared so quickly.

It was beelzebub, the same guy that was on the flight in your other post-


Demotage November 2, 2009 at 3:44 pm

I wonder if he was drinking Jim Beam while he was suspended in air? Or can animal-demon lips sip from a tumbler? For that matter, how would one hold a tumbler with cloven hooves, and would bourbon freeze at 35000 Ft?

Amazing man! I'm so happy for you, and the way you could use your baby Jesus powers against the evil of the night. You've inspired me to try to harness my baby Jesus powers as well.

If only you were as talented as Cap'n Crunch…*sigh*

It is amazing, the lack of respect and faith people have these days. Although I am super-liberal, not religious and not a church goer, I do believe in God and the spiritual world. Why people can't just read and post comments with respect? Capt. Griego is only telling his story, why do you people have to leave offensive and stupid, demeaning comments? People want respect but they don't want to give it. That's not how it works.

The good Captain is a serial poster and has encountered Satan in First Class (see previous stories) as well as visions in other situations. If you google his name you'll see why there is the vitriol. And you may want to pray if he comes over the intercom as the pilot on your flight.


Demotage December 9, 2009 at 10:35 am

I have no problem with the "Captain's" faith. He's welcome to it. I have a problem that he is a fraud posing as as airline pilot. Just read his web page and you'll see.

As for respect. All people start with a normal amount of respect from me. You can earn more respect by being respectable, or you can lose respect by being not respectable. If you come on here posing as an airline pilot when you are not, you lose respect.

@Edward Calderon

If you say something stupid, you're setting yourself up for ridicule. This has always been so and will always be so. And it is amazing the lack of respect that believers of all faiths have for those that do not subscribe to their creed, the newest being the cult of "political correctness". That too is only natural, because otherwise you wouldn't be believing, right? Therefore it makes just as little sense what you write about yourself, because you obviously can't make up your mind. That "super-liberal" is a hollow phrase, a feeble excuse that doesn't even stand the test of logic. Have an educated opinion and stand for it, or the greatness to admit you just know nothing. Anything else is BS. And regarding this particular instance, the potential passengers' fear of depending on a captain, who displays devoutness so strong that one can't put it beyond him that faith might influence his decisions in a critical situation, deserves as much respect.

Being a humantarian I respect all religious beliefs – well maybie a slight edge on Satanism! But for the first time ever I feel the need to critasize. No offence towards Mr Griego but assuming these stories are acually true I find it difficult to believe all these things that have been said. But believe what you want to believe.


MM April 21, 2010 at 5:14 am

My favorite part is where he implies that only people of faith would see things like this.


MM April 21, 2010 at 5:16 am

Excuse me, he or she.


Captain Art Griego January 28, 2011 at 12:29 pm

I like how the people are so quick to doubt my credentials but aren't willing to turn that finger of accusation around and point it at their ownselves where their personal salvation with The CHRIST is concerned. Pretty typical of people who are fundamentally unhappy with themselves and their lots in life.

GOD bless you-

Captain Art Griego

I don't believe this…. I mean, I bet you saw something, but it could just have been a trick of the light.


Alex February 27, 2015 at 9:27 am

"Captain" Griego, we doubt you actually are a pilot because you crashed multiple air transportation vehicles and have no clue why you are blacklisted from a country AFTER YOU CRASHED INTO IT!

You really need to get your head checked out.
