You attribute a higher quality on pilote observation which is not warranted by the reality.
The Thomas Mantell UFO incident in 1948 where he was climbing in his P51 Mustang past a safe altitude and likely blacked out from lack of oxygen approaching 25,000 feet, not having an oxygen mask. He was chasing Venus.
