UFOs Appear in Air Force Training Manual

UFOs Appear in Air Force Training Manual

What's a Drawing Like This - By Robert Barrow APRO Bulletin April 1980

What’s a Drawing Like That, Doing in a Place Like This?

     One day, we were instructed to complete, in class, a manual and test on Air Force security. Working diligently from page to page of the booklet, dated 1 January 1968 and entitled, “Air Force Standard Communications Security Education Program (Transmission Security),” I at last reached page 56–where I suddenly encountered a strange sight indeed. Under the heading, “Proper communications Security Procedures,” was a drawing depicting two unmistakably saucer-shaped craft, armed and firing no less. Below the drawing a caption read: “Information concerning radically new and extremely important weapons or equipment should be classified Top Secret.

UFO with Humanoid Occupants in Lugo, Spain - 1980
Witness described a large, shell-shaped object, both on its upper and lower section, with numerous portholes around it. Standing close to this vehicle were three very strange humanoid entities.

     The time would have been around Sunday, 9 March 1980. A town, some men, an artifact and three strange beings that could have well been extraterrestrial. A little more than just the garden-variety UFO.

identification, fearful of what may arise – and Miguel Palacios, visited the little town of Ronfe in the municipality of Sarria, Province of Lugo, to spend the weekend with their relatives. Both met to play cards at a tavern owned by the former’s parents.

UFO with Humanoid Occupants in Lugo, Spain (2) - 1980

Around ten o’clock Saturday evening, Carlos noticed brightness “very similar to one he had seen at the TV retransmitting station at Paramo. I didn’t pay much attention to it aside from an anecdotal remark to my family.” We learned that one of Carlos’s children wanted to go outside for a look, but his parents forbid it, as it was “foolish to do so, kid.”

In the early hours of the morning, around 2 a.m., Carlos had to go outside the tavern and was stunned: in an empty field, some three hundred meters and at the other side of the river, he saw something he would have never imagined: a large, shell-shaped object, both on its upper and lower section, with numerous portholes around it. it gave the impression of having touched the ground, although no ground impressions were ever found. Standing close to this vehicle were three very strange humanoid entities, issuing a bright light “as if they were stuck in a block of ice and wore white coveralls.” Most surprising yet was that they carried light sources in their hands which put forth a dim red light.

Carlos made sure he wasn’t dreaming and called to those inside the place of business to come outside. Miguel Palacios was the first one out, and was able to see the brightness, the object and one of the occupants. He agrees with his friend on the description.

However, José Díaz López, a resident of Ronfe, who also went outside to see what was going on, was only able to see “brightness toward Sarria, but my eyes aren’t too good, and I’d been discussing the need to visit the optometrist at that very moment.”

According to experts in the subject of UFOs, the fact that the ship or object did not leave prints does not mean it wasn’t there, as it wasn’t necessary for the object to land.

The powerful light given off by the vessel was yellowish and lambent, illuminating nearly three hundred meters around. As far as noise was concerned, the witnesses were unable to provide details, suggesting that it was not very intense. “Since a river runs nearby, we were only able to hear a very muted whistling sound.”

That Saturday afternoon, Carlos had covered 90 kilometers with his car and when he parked in front of the tavern it had been in perfect shape. Shortly after the sighting, he was unable to get the car started. “This car always turns over immediately – it’s a brand new Ford Fiesta.” Once the craft took off at high speed, he was able to start the car without further complications.

Carlos will not be gainsaid. “I saw it with my very own eyes. I know nothing about UFOs and have never read anything about them.” He doesn’t believe or disbelieve in the existence of creatures from another world. Doesn’t know whether these were aliens or not. “It matters not at all to me. I can only tell you what I saw.”

The Only Man to Ever Shoot at a UFO

The Only Man to Ever Shoot at a UFO

     Thirty-five years ago, fighter pilot Oscar Santa Maria Huerta had a real-life Independence Day moment when he attempted to shoot down a mysterious light-bulb shaped craft, in what to this day remains the only documented case of a military aircraft firing on a UFO.

It was early on the morning of April 11, 1980, and the 23-year-old Peruvian air force lieutenant was preparing for daily exercises along with around 1800 military personnel and civilians at the La Joya Air Force Base, 1000km south of the Peruvian capital.

Lt Huerta, a pilot with eight years’ experience who had been flying combat missions since 19, was ordered to take off in his Russian-made Sukhoi-22 fighter to intercept the strange silvery object that had been spotted floating near the end of the runway.

The object was five kilometres away, hanging in the air about 600 metres off the ground, and was not replying to any communications. […]

British Policeman Claims He Was ‘Abducted’ By Aliens

British Policeman Claims He Was 'Abducted’ By Aliens

     A POLICE man filed an official report to superiors that he lost time after witnessing an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) hovering overhead.

Alan Godfry, a former PC with West Yorkshire Police remains convinced he may have been abducted by aliens as he nears the 35th anniversary of the shocking series of events.

Mr Godfrey was on patrol in Todmorden in the early hours of November 28 1980, when he insists a large UFO spotted him while he was on a search for missing cattle.

The officer was in Burnley Road on the outskirts of the town looking for the farm animals that were reported missing and about to give up when he claims to have seen

what he thought was a bus approaching from a few hundred metres away.

But as he got nearer, he realised it was not the 5am commuter bus, but, instead, “a large mass”.

He said at the time: “It was a fuzzy oval that rotated at such speed and hovered so low over the road that it was causing the bushes by the side to shake.”

He claims he stopped to sketch the “UFO” on his note pad, but was overcome by a burst of light. […]

New UFO Investigation Hopes To Solve Mystery of ‘Britain’s Roswell’

UFO at Rendlesham Forest

A new petition hopes to get to the bottom of one of the most mysterious UFO incidents in the UK – the Rendlesham Forest Incident in 1980, where several soldiers witnessed lights, floating vehicles and strange marks which many thought were extraterrestrial craft landing.

     The Rendlesham Forest sightings are often described as ‘Britain’s Roswell’.

Despite the release of a large Ministry of Defence file regarding the incident, UFO enthusiasts believe there is still information being covered up – and the new petition demands that all staff and all information be released from the Official Secrets Act.

Reports by retired soldiers such as Colonel Charles Halt sound seriously spooky: ‘While in Rendlesham Forest, our security team observed a light that looked like a large eye, red in colour, moving through the trees.

‘After a few minutes this object began dripping something that looked like molten metal.’ . . .

Police Constable, Alan Godfrey Abducted by Aliens? | VIDEO

Police Constable, Alan Godfrey Abducted by Aliens

PC Alan Godfrey UFO Witness on BBC Breakfast Time TV Show – 1980’s

     The 1980 Alan Godfrey case is the main abduction case that Gary has researched in depth. He thinks this case is important because as well as Godfrey’s testimony, there are several independent witnesses that saw something strange in the sky at the same time in the local area.

Timeline of Alan Godfrey’s experience. On November 28th, 1980, Alan was in his patrol car in Todmorden, West Yorkshire. He was sent to check out reports of cattle wandering around a local council estate. He saw a bright light in the road ahead and thought it was a bus. As he got closer, though, it became clear that this was not the case. He found himself looking at a rotating object, hovering over the road. He sketched the craft in his notebook. There was a burst of light and he found himself driving further along the road with no sign of the UFO. He returned to the police station and later found that he was missing about twenty-five minutes of time. The sole of one of his boots was split and he had an itchy, red mark on his foot.

Later, he would undergo hypnotic regression, where it emerged that he was taken from the car and led onto the craft. Here, he saw robot-like creatures and a humanoid wearing a black skull cap. Gary has studied the video tapes of Alan’s hypnosis session and has concluded that they were well conducted. Alan was not lying. He had nothing to gain from making up his story and, indeed, his experience has had a negative effect on his life.

Gary would also point to one pioneer of abduction research, the late Dr John Mack. Mack had concluded that many abductions go back to ‘the victims’ childhood. Alan Godfrey had spoken of seeing a blue ‘tennis ball’ in his room as a child. Others have reported these blue orbs both in their bedrooms and other places, such as while driving. . . .
