You already know about the famous November 17, 1986 UFO encounter involving a Japanese Air Lines cargo flight (if you don’t, you can certainly read the particulars via the Web), but months surrounding the incident — or incidents, since at least one other UFO report was claimed by the JAL pilot and crew) — held their own UFO surprises, not as well-publicized as the JAL news.

By June of 1987, according to the Associated Press, Poland’s official Army newspaper was announcing that “several” military pilots had spotted strange objects flying silently over the country at high speeds. The Army daily, Zolnlerz Wolnosci, quoted the pilot of a Soviet-made single-engine AN-2, a passenger plane: “I saw a plane passing about 60 yards below me with a plume of bright fire trailing it. I was surprised because I should have heard the roar of a jet engine while the plane passed by me without a sound.”

While the newspaper did not offer a specific date, it did confirm that similar reports had been received from other pilots.
