UFO TV Series (1960s) Predicted Today's Cutting-Edge Military Tech
Easily the coolest weapon on UFO, Sky One [above] was the backup defense against alien spacecraft that made it past the Moonbase interceptors. It was a stubby delta-wing jet fighter launched from an attack submarine called Skydiver.

The 1960s TV Series U.F.O Predicted Today’s Cutting-Edge Military Tech

By Mark Strauss

      Yes, this classic show created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson had its share of late-’60s, early-’70s schlock, such as military officers whose mini-skirt uniforms included purple wigs. But U.F.O also had strong characters, nuanced plots and extremely cool technology that, in retrospect, was decades ahead of its time.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with U.F.O (and, if so, what the hell is wrong with you?), the series is set in the year 1980, when a global organization called S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization) is waging a secret war against extraterrestrials who are periodically launching attacks on Earth.

S.H.A.D.O. has constructed a multi-layered defense system (portrayed in the opening credit sequence below) consisting of an early warning satellite, a Moon base that launches Interceptor fighters, a high-speed jet launched from a submarine (Skydiver) and ground-based mobile units.

UFO Shuts Down USAF Air Police Vehicles at Nuclear Bomber Base

By Robert Hastings

     Over the past 41 years, I have interviewed nearly 150 U.S. military veterans regarding their involvement in, or knowledge of, nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. On September 27, 2010, seven of those individuals participated in my “UFOs and Nukes” press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live (see below):

The most recent veteran to come forward, former U.S. Air Force Air Policeman Regenold “Reggie” Brown, contacted me after reading an account by another former USAF Air Policeman, Larry W. Rogers, whose UFO experience is posted at my website. Both had been stationed at Ben Guerir Air Base, Morocco, in the early 1960s, although at different times.

During that era, the base was home to B-47 and B-52 bomber squadrons, whose nuclear weapons would have been unleashed against the Soviet Union and her allies if war between the superpowers had erupted. The location of Ben Guerir, in North Africa, meant that the older model B-47s would not have to refuel in flight to reach targets in the U.S.S.R.

Reggie Brown told me, in an email and follow-up telephone call—his comments are combined here—that he was aware of a UFO incursion at the base:

I was stationed at Ben Guerir in 1961-62 and worked in the Air Police K-9 unit. I do not recall Larry Rogers but he could have been [stationed there] before me or after me.

The only incident I remember occurred when I was guarding the atomic bomb storage site one night. There was a lot of excitement about a lighted sphere, about the size of a basketball, sighted near the runway. [It was] hovering above the ground when the strike team arrived. Their truck’s engine quit working and the radio and the lights too.

The reserve strike team came to the first team’s aid but their truck also quit working. They pushed the first truck back away from the sphere; it was about a hundred feet from it. This all took about 30 minutes. This sphere looked like a bright light during the incident.

Then, as quickly as it appeared, it left. The next day we were taken into a room and told we could not talk about this incident. I did not see this sphere myself because I was working in a different area, but was able to hear all of the chatter on my radio that night.

I asked Brown where the sphere had hovered, relative to the Weapons Storage Area and the Bomber Alert Area. He said, “The runway was three miles long and the object was located about half-way, just off to the side of it. It wasn’t too near the bomb storage site or the bombers.”

I asked Brown who had debriefed him and the other Air Policemen the following day. He said, “Some lieutenant. I don’t think I knew him.” I asked whether that individual might have been an Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) agent, given that they often debrief USAF personnel following UFO incidents, according to many of my other sources. Brown said he didn’t know. “Whoever he was, he made it very clear that we were not to talk about the sphere; that we would be in big trouble if we did.”

Reggie Brown provided me with his DD214—the U.S. military’s standard service record form—which confirmed his position as a USAF Air Policeman.
