US military pilots who approached an unidentified flying object that was shot down by fighter jets off the coast of Alaska have given conflicting accounts of what they saw. Some pilots said that the object interfered with the plane's sensors, while others said they didn't experience that.

Another pilot said that when they looked at the object, they could not identify a propulsion system and did not know how it was actually staying in the air, cruising at about 40,000 feet. Recovery efforts have been launched, and the FBI will take the lead in analyzing the debris.

U.S. fighter jets have shot down four mysterious objects in the past week, including one 10 miles off the frozen coast of Alaska on Friday afternoon. According to U.S. military leaders and pilots, these objects are about the size of a small car and could not be identified as foreign or domestic aircraft or balloons. 

The current leading theory is that these objects were benign balloons released in an experiment, although officials are still investigating what other possible explanations might be present for their flight patterns that led to them being shot down by $439,000 missiles by U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots.

Conflicting eyewitness accounts are not uncommon in such situations. It's possible that different pilots had different perspectives on the same event, or were affected differently by the object's presence. It's also possible that some pilots were more attuned to their aircraft's sensors than others, leading to different reports of sensor interference.

In cases like this, it's important to gather and critically examine as much information as possible to determine what actually happened. It's possible that further investigation or analysis could help clarify the situation and reconcile the different accounts.
