by John Evans

Kurt Russell may only be playing an intergalactic alien in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2; but in real life, the truth is stranger than fiction! In a new BBC interview, Russell reveals that he experienced the infamous 1997 Phoenix Lights mass UFO sighting while piloting a small plane. He states that he was the civilian pilot who first reported the incident from the skies. Here’s what he had to say on the subject:

“I was flying [his son Oliver] to go see his girlfriend, and we were on approach. I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform in a V shape. Oliver said to me — I was just looking at him, I was coming in, we’re maybe a half a mile out — and Oliver said, ‘Pa, what are those lights?’

Then I kind of came out of my reverie and I said, ‘I don’t know what they are.’ He said, ‘Are we okay here?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna call in,’ and I reported it.”

The man came face to face with what he believes were aliens from another dimension, yet he maintained the composure of a paragliding Snake Plissken! This story proves that this guy is cool as a cucumber both on and off of the silver screen! You can watch the entire video clip of his explanation below:

That proves it… between Harrison Ford, and now Kurt Russell, you never know what just might happen when a Hollywood A-Lister takes to the skies!
