Eyes were on the sky at Danbury Airport Thursday, looking for UFOs. 
Unified Flying Octogenarians is a flying club for senior citizens.
John Sullivan has been a pilot for seven decades, he says, making him one of the club's youngest members.
The minimum age to join is 80, but the current oldest, actively-flying member is 101. The club gathered Thursday for a reunion.
Sullivan, who flies his own Cessna, says he has to pass a strenuous physical to keep his pilot's license.
"I'm not sure if I'm healthy because I fly, or I fly because I'm healthy," Sullivan says. "I think it's, I'm healthy because I fly, and I want to keep flying."
