UFOs Invaded The Tri-State

[…]

     According to newspaper reports, a young man driving down a gravel road in Wayne County, Illinois, reported seeing a strange light knifing through the low clouds. As he watched it, transfixed, his car died.

Three days later, the young man got some company.

“Scores of residents” all across the Tri-State, but mostly from Fairfield, reported seeing a “kite-shaped and … bright orange” object loitering in the night sky.

Col. Robert Friend, of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, was called in to investigate.

UFO Reports Change With the Technology of the Times

UFO Reports Change With the Technology of the Times

     In 1896, newspapers throughout the United States began reporting accounts of mysterious airships flying overhead. Descriptions varied, but witnesses frequently invoked the century’s great technological achievements. Some sources reported dirigibles

powered by steam engines. Others saw motorized, winged crafts with screw propellers. Many recalled a flying machine equipped with a powerful searchlight.

As technologies of flight evolve, so do the descriptions of unidentified flying objects. The pattern has held in the 21st century as sightings of drone-like objects are reported, drawing concern from military and intelligence officials about possible security threats.

While puzzling over the appearance of curious things overhead may be a constant, how we have done so has changed over time, as the people doing the puzzling change. In every instance of reporting UFOs, observers have called on their personal experiences and prevailing knowledge of world events to make sense of these nebulous apparitions. In other words, affairs here on earth have consistently colored our perceptions of what is going on over our heads.

“I just saw them in the sky, go what is that? And he looked up and he goes, oh,” the woman said.

“I stopped the van, got my phone out, and put it on the video,” said the man.

They say eight orbs of light making no noise were flying over the Evansville sky.

Book Review: UFO Contacts in Italy

As an example of the fact that UFOs and ufology are a world-wide phenomenon, the redoubtable Philip Mantle and Flying Disk Press (one of the very few publishers still keeping the public informed about the history of ufology) takes us to what has to be the golden age of subject. This time the revelations come from Roberto Pinotti and the files of ‘Centro Ufologico Nazionale’ (CUN) the leading Italian society who still investigates the phenomenon. Translated from the Italian language, this book is volume one in a series that, in this case, covers the years from 1907 until 1978 and 1958 was especially productive.

The book, which is profusely illustrated with some remarkable images, is an absolute treasure trove of information and the reader can open it at any page and is guaranteed to find something of interest. That said, rather that outright examples of visitations from ETs, the vast majority of examples presented here appear to be ‘high strangeness’ encounters rather than anything else, which are of course still valid and perhaps even more interesting, but not proof of anything extraterrestrial. In fact the book takes a ‘no questions asked’ approach and a refreshingly literalist view of the subject and has obviously been compiled and written by a true believer.

Italian UFO Researcher and Author Robert Pinotti

The author was a friend of, and collaborated with the late Gordon Creighton who was the long time editor of the UK’s Flying Saucer Review (FSR) and his influence becomes clear as one reads the book. Some of the images are astonishing and there are a few of what is claimed to be the inside of a UFO (pages 96 & 97) which also show the pilot who is human looking and is wearing what look like wrap-round sunglasses. There is also a report of analysis carried out on metallic residue left at a landing site, and surprisingly the residue comprises only earthly constituents in various proportions. This is encouraging if, for no other reason, than it seems the elements in the periodic table are universal. There is no doubt that for the dedicated ufologist this book is an essential part of their library and deserved to be read and if anyone is interested the CUN website is:

The book is now available on Amazon in paperback and kindle. You can contact the author and the publisher via the FLYING DISK PRESS blog at:

Navy Pilot, Who Chased A UFO, Says ‘We Should Take Them Seriously’

David Fravor

     David Fravor is a recognizable type. Affable, neatly dressed, with a men’s regular haircut and semi-rimless glasses, he’s a retired military man who works as a consultant in the Boston area. He could be standing in front of you in a Starbucks line and you wouldn’t notice him at all.
By Martin Finucane

But the story he has to tell is literally out of this world.

Thirteen years ago, the Windham, N.H., resident was a veteran US Navy pilot at the controls of an F/A-18-F fighter jet flying off San Diego when he sighted an unidentified flying object and tried to intercept it.

“I want to join on it. I want to see how close I can get to it,” Fravor, 53, said, describing his thinking as he began the pursuit.

Then the object, which looked like a 4o-foot-long Tic Tac candy, “goes whoosh, and it’s gone.” he said. It accelerated rapidly and disappeared like no aircraft he had ever seen in his career.

O'Hare UFO Eye Witness Appears in Silhouette on CNN

     Mainstream media’s interest in the “O’Hare UFO Incident” hasn’t waned yet; the latest to jump in on the UFO bandwagon was/is Anderson Cooper of “Anderson Cooper 360°” aired by CNN.

Interesting to note that on CNN’s web-site for Cooper’s show, it’s described as follows:

“ . . . a fast-moving, surprising and provocative alternative to the typical network evening newscast. Backed by the global resources of CNN.”

Frank Warren

For this particular episode nothing could be further from the truth; this broadcast couldn’t be anymore typical in regards to the media’s handling of the UFO subject, certainly wasn’t provocative, and by no means was a surprise! Moreover, if skeptic Joe Nickell is considered to be one of CNN’s “global resources,” then one can imagine the caliber of this particular segment!

To be honest, up until now, I have looked at Anderson Cooper as a breath of fresh air in regards to television journalism; I must admit I was anticipating at the very least a serious look into the matter; however, Cooper followed the same path as those before him (historically speaking) in making light of the incident. This by the way is concerning an “unidentified, unauthorized aircraft” directly over the second busiest airport in our nation; witnessed by several airport personnel! All this in a post 911 world during a period when our nation is at war!

O’HARE UFO INCIDENT: Elusive Photos Discussed in Leaked News Footage | VIDEO (Redux)

O'Hare UFO

     A video surfaced in the spring of 2007 showing an unedited pre-interview discussion of the Chicago O’Hare Airport UFO sighting between Jon Hilkevitch (the Chicago Tribune transportation reporter who reported the Chicago UFO story) and Jim Wagner a news anchor with CLTV, a 24 Hour news channel in Oak Brook, Illinois.

Jon Hilkevitch, Jim Wagner - O'Hare UFO Incident
The video shows both men having an off-air discussion about the amount of international media reaction to the UFO story as well as discussing United Airlines alleged “flip-flop” on the event and the FAA’s explanation as “weather phenomenon” that according to Hilkevitch’s sources “just doesn’t wash.” Hilkevitch also mentions that photographs were possibly taken by a pilot with a digital camera and that the story is “the most read story in the history of CT.com (chicagotribune.com)” with almost a “million hits.”

Hilkevitch then goes on to say that he is hearing from: “serious researchers at major US universities who’ve attempted to do their own investigations and, when they go to the government to try to get information, they get stonewalled.” Hilkevitch continues by saying “So there really is this universal feeling that the government knows more than it’s willing to tell.”
