Flying Saucers (UFOs) Sighters Get scientific Support | UFO CHRONICLE – 8-12-1965

Flying Saucers Get scientific Support - Chicago Sun-Times 8-12-1965

     […]

Jacqques Vallee, French-born astronomer now a Chicagoan, believes a lack of authentic research may be at the bottom of inability to place UFOs in perspective.

[…]

“The current increase in the number of UFO reports,” he said, “undoubtedly marks the beginning of a wave comparable to those of 1954 or 1957. Currently there is a deluge of reports all over Europe, Australia and South America.

UFO Sightings: Is the Government Withholding An Interest in Alien Life?

UFO Recorded On a FLIR Camera BY The Chilean Navy 11-11-14

This article, along with others exploring the possibilities of alien life and other mysteries hidden beyond the stars, is featured in Newsweek’s Special Edition: Life Beyond Earth? The Mission to Find the Answer.

     In December 1969, the United States government called for the end of Project Blue Book, its 22-year investigation into unidentified airborne phenomena. Overnight, the authorities’ official position changed from one of indulgent public curiosity to absolute public

disinterest. “The Air Force was the head agency during Project Blue Book, where they went out into the field and talked to witnesses, essentially trying to figure out what was going on,” explains John Greenewald, founder of The Black Vault, an Internet-based resource that has compiled more than 1.4 million declassified government documents. “After 1969, it was the United States Air Force that said, ‘no government agency including our own has any interest in this phenomenon.’” But thanks to the dogged effort of Greenewald and other UFO researchers wielding Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, anyone with an Internet connection and an open mind can deduce the government isn’t quite as apathetic toward UFOs as it claims.

One curious item indicative of the cat-and-mouse game Greenewald feels the government plays with UFO researchers was an entry in an Air Force training manual discovered through a FOIA request. “I discovered, about eight to 10 years ago now, an Air Force regulation, Air Force Instruction 10-206,” Greenewald says. “It deals with what to do if pilots see something strange in the sky and how they have to report it. The rule was a short list of things to look for—for example if they saw a missile streak across the sky, that was outlined as something they would need to report. On this very short list was the entry, ‘Unidentified Flying Objects.’ Obviously we’re talking about 30 or more years after their investigation was stopped.”

UFO Eludes Supersonic Fighter-Bomber, Reports Air Force | UFO CHRONICLE –1968

Spaniards Say UFO Eluded Supersonic Fighter-Bomber - The Tampa Tribune (Tampa, Florida) 9-7-1968

     MADRID (UPI) – The Spanish air force said yesterday an “unidentified flying object” eluded one of its supersonic jet fighter-bombers as a rash of flying saucer reports spread from Latin America to Europe.

The sighting of a bright object in the night sky over Madrid caused a monumental traffic jam and sent the U.S. built F104 jet scrambling to find out what it was.

KECKSBURG UFO INCIDENT: Eyewitness, Report To US Air Force

Eyewitness Report Re Kecksburg UFO (Pg 1) 12-9-1965
Eyewitness Report Re Kecksburg UFO (Pg 2) 12-9-1965

Eyewitness Report
To The US Air Force
12-9-1965

Dec 9th, 1965

Gentlemen,

I have just returned from a convention in Miami beach, via Tampa on Air Canada Flight.

Since I just sighted this “thing” over your country I suppose you are the people I should report to.

At approx 4:45 p.m. and at about 10 minutes flying time south of the city of Pittsburgh when we were at 18,000 ft. I was looking out the window toward the east when I saw “it.”

A sort of pencil shaped object flying horizontal for a second then going into a 70° dive with an orange flame then appearing behind it. In a matter of just 3 or 4 seconds it was gone. Just like a rocket taking off but this was in reverse – going down.

Apparently I was the only one on board who saw it. However when I asked the stewardess to speak to the captain she told me that he had seen the same thing and was reporting it on the radio.

I was not drinking and have flown quite a bit as a passenger and am a former R.C.A.F. pilot from the last war. I have never seen anything like this before, especially the rapid changes in direction and terrific speed.

I hope that this information may be of some use.

Yours Truly,
[redacted]

AREA 51: Pilot Dies in Crash of Mystery Aircraft

Area 51

THE death of a top US pilot at a secret test facility is wrapped in mystery. The aircraft he was flying hasn’t been revealed, and it took three days for authorities to admit the crash happened.

     LIEUTENANT Colonel Eric Schults died from injuries sustained after the military aircraft he was flying crashed on Tuesday.

The US Air Force won’t reveal what aircraft he was flying.

It also took authorities three days before publicly announcing his death.

Both elements are highly unusual, especially given it came a day before two A-10C Thunderbolt II ground-attack aircraft crashed on the same weapons testing range. Both pilots managed to eject to safety.

“Information about the type of aircraft involved is classified and not releasable,” Major Christina Sukach, chief of public affairs for the 99 Air Base Wing at Nellis, told military.com.

UFO Encounter by Air Force Commander

Aerial UFO Encounter by Air Force Commander

A former commander in the Yugoslavian Air Force and Air Defence has spoken candidly about an alleged encounter with a space ship, the likes of which he had never seen before.

     General Zvonimir Jurjevic was serving as head of the 172 Aviation Regiment in Titograd – now Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro – in 1975 when a brightly-coloured UFO came into the Air Force’s vicinity.

General Jurjevic said he first spotted the UFO in a routine flight in January of that year.

He described the object as having the ability to constantly change colours and was deliberately trying to be noticed.

The commander said: “The object looked like a glowing orb, very well visible, maybe 10 times lighter than the brightest star at that moment.
