Cannot the official view simply say that yes, OK, that report seems unusual and interesting, but there is insufficient information to confirm the source of the phenomenom, and treat us like grown up adults?
Campeche UFO, FLIR sdystem, Mexican (?) army. Mistaken oil rig flare for UFO. And tehre are more of those (like pilote following venus as UFO or even the moon following a crash).

You attribute a higher quality on pilote observation which is not warranted by the reality.
