UFO REPORTS INCREASE IN CANADA
ANOTHER NEW ROSWELL WITNESS
I was at Roswell in 1947 to early 1950. I was at the time a gunner in
393rd Bomb Squadron, 509th Bomb Group and a member of Captain Frederick
Ewing's B-29 combat crew with tail number 44-7301 (Straight Flush) ..
Wednesday, July 9, 1947, our crew transported a crate to Carswell Army
Force Base, Fort Worth, Texas in 1:55 minutes. The mission and cargo
classified. The crate was hauled in the front bomb bay and armed guards
in that bomb bay with the crate. When I removed the down lock, I saw
and a Technical Sergeant in the bomb bay and some others in there. They
the whole trip in the bomb bay and did not return with us. We flew
unpressurized at about 8,000 feet. Our bombardier made a safety check
shackles which held the platform secure. Those shackles were rigged
the cargo could not be jettisoned. The corporal tail gunner and I saw
crate when we removed the down locks from the from the bomb doors. The
was covered with a tarp when unloaded and taken away on a trailer at
Carswell. I would guess the crate was about 12 x 6 x 6 feet. The engineer
and I talked about weight and balance. They evidently had not given
firm figure on the weight. He said with a laugh, "As long as it isn't
than five thousand pounds our center of gravity should be okay." We
that Ft. Worth was to be our landing point, and we might get to see
B-36 bomber. Someone made a remark about carrying "The General's Furniture".
There had also been rumors for a couple of days about a spaceship crash,
we were only told it was classified cargo and to stay back.
On the way home, I went forward to chat with Warrant Officer Landry
minor problem with a prop. We had the Curtiss Electric's and there was
concern that one of them was hunting a bit. Major Jessie Marcel rode
Roswell with us and I talked briefly with him. He was always interested
the enlisted men on flight crews. He wanted gunners to be good observers
when on long missions. I don't think his questions that day were probing.
We were useful mostly as scanners because we had only tail guns. He
I was anxious to get into B-36's? We were told repeatedly not to talk
this incident, not even to our wives. I held that inside until 1988
books began to appear. To this day I am in touch with one other member
our crew. Most of the others are no longer alive. Major Ewing was killed
a B-47 crash in Florida in 1952.
Sometime afterwards, about three to six months later, the wives began
among themselves about the cleanup detail. This originated from the
men on that duty. One such was a neighbor of ours in July 1947. They
across town, but I would sometimes see him and I ask him what he had
there. He was upset and told me, "You don't want to know." I think he
baker because he would leave for work in the early morning, like 0130
A time or two when I'd come in from a late flight he would be standing
corner waiting for a ride. They did not own a car. Based on the wives
gossip we heard that he had seen a body.
Later, I became a pilot and while in SAC and was an instructor in the
Aero-clubs and moonlighting as a crop duster. Aviation has been my life.
While in SAC KC-97's at March AFB our crew had two weird experiences,
something that officially wasn't there. You may put the story in your
Filer's Files. Thanks to a Roswell B-29 gunner.
Editor's Note: The government claims what was brought to Fort Worth
guard was an unclassified Mogul Balloon that they launched regularly
White Sands Proving Grounds with printed instructions on the side for
reward if found. Our witness claims there were multiple guards inside
bomb bay. Even Atomic bombs did not normally warrant guards inside the
bay and certainly not an officer with the rank of Major. The witness
verifies parts of the message held in General Ramey's hand such as the
was forwarded to Fort Worth as ordered below:
FOUR RAMEY MESSAGE COMPARISONS
Neil Morris writes from the University of Manchester in England. Several
distinguished groups are attempting to interpret the writing on a message
held in General Ramey's hand taken in the Commander's 8th Air Force
photographer James Bond Johnson in July of 1947. David Rudiak's sent
"take" of the message and allowed me to include it in the comparisons
readings taken from a message that takes up a tiny portion of the photograph.
It has taken fifty years and modern computers to attempt to read the
message. There are several interpretations of the message and we should
emphasize that the various "takes" are far from being set in stone and
represent a "snap-shot" of a work in progress as of April. The
interpretations, I am sure, WILL change and evolve as time goes on.

HANGER 18, FACT OR FICTION?
Robert Collins writes recent investigations have turned up new information
that may in fact point to a suspected place as Hangar 18 at WP but it's
called Hangar 23: Hangar 23 sits between buildings 18F and 18A in the
Complex and so this might make it easier to understand how the Hangar
folklore developed? As the story goes from sources the Roswell or another
Craft(s) (dimensions of 30 X 15 feet disc) were brought into Hangar
floor of the hangar was removed and the craft lowered into this newly
basement: A concrete floor was then placed over this basement area containing
the Craft. Please see
NEW JERSEY FIRE BALL
DELRAN -- Cyndi writes my boyfriend called and requested that I "look
outside" and asked, "Do you see anything?" I want to know if anyone
anything unusual on April 6, 2000, between 8:30 and 8:40 PM. I saw a
fiery blue-white ball with a massive orange-hazed tail, which moved
across the sky and then disappeared. We watched this thing for a good
minutes. Shortly after, we observed military craft flying in formation
helicopter's flying low above the trees as if looking for something.

KENNETT SQUARE - Dolores Ely says, I arise out of bed every morning
AM. On March 8, 2000, I put the dog out and I looked out to the southeast
and saw two perfectly round lights at tree top level. They were going
west to east direction, very slowly. These lights were not luminous.
were more like flat opaque white in color. They were at least 500 yards
away. They were spaced about twenty feet apart from each other horizontally
moving very slowly. The size at arm's length was larger than my fist.
disappeared behind a row of houses down the street just as it was getting
light outside. Thanks to: Bob Ely [email protected]
ROSS TOWNSHIP -- Stan Gordon reports that on March 26, 2000, two witnesses
were standing outside in a Pittsburgh suburb when they noticed an odd
moving across the sky at a high altitude at 10:45 PM. The object was
like a triangle and, "Had to be huge" since it was very high up, but
clearly be seen as it blocked out a portion of the clear sky as it moved.
The triangular shape was defined by a number of grayish-white lights
were non-blinking, and which all moved together. The object moved fast
across the sky towards the northeast, and was observed for around 10
No sound was heard as the object passed overhead.
PITTSBURGH -- A man reported seeing a bright white light in the sky
8:23 PM on March 30, 2000, in Shadyside. The object was circular or
semicircular in shape and appeared stationary. Suddenly the light moved
straight up into the sky and "winked out." The sighting lasted only
seconds, and no sound was apparent. Thanks to Stan Gordon.
FLORIDA UNEXPLAINED MARKS
LAKEWORTH - Carolyn writes that in 1982, I woke up one morning, and
discovered a very angry red circular mark on my back. It took several
to heal up, but I still have the mark. I couldn't understand it since
it wasn't an insect bite and I didn't have it when I went to bed! In
was out to dinner with my ex-husband who got drunk. I asked him to put
a cab to take me to his apartment, and I would wait for him there. From
time I got in the cab, till I woke up, on the lawn, in front of his
apartment, I have absolutely no memory of the ride, or getting out of
cab, etc. When I woke up, I was on my back on the lawn, my clothing
order, and my purse was laying right beside me. My money and credit
were not disturbed in any way. I still watch the skies, but never had
another encounter. Thanks to Carolyn R, [email protected]

ILLINOIS LIGHT AT SAUCER SITE
I saw last weeks Filer's posting on the Forest Homes, Illinois saucers
was intrigued as it is fairly close to my home in Florissant, Missouri.
verified there is a Walnut Drive in Forest Homes, and there is a large
behind it to the east. I went there March 31, 2000, from 3:15 AM to
Friday morning out of curiosity. At about 3:30 AM, I saw an amber light
by in the distance from east to west over a period of two or three minutes.
The lighting was not like that of an aircraft, and I heard no noise
object. Dogs in the vicinity started barking while the object was in
The light was fairly low in the sky and the trajectory seemed straight
smooth. The weather was clear sky and calm air. Thanks to Gary W.
TUSCALOOSA -- Three almost transparent, almost circular (amoebae shaped),
phosphorous neon-green entities flying in a triangular formation. All
witnesses estimate that the altitude was 30 feet and the objects were
the diameter of a basketball hoop, (2 feet) but were very thin from
bottom. We watched them suddenly appear from the north and fly in a
line over the house and past the trees to the south where they disappeared.

TEXAS UFO BUZZES CAR
GRAHAM -- Peter B. Davenport the Director on the National Reporting
sent this dramatic sighting report. On April 1, 2000, 96 miles northwest
Dallas a computer salesman and his girlfriend observed a very bright
move towards them as we traveled south on Highway 16.
Suddenly an extremely bright light was shinning off to our left. The
was behind some trees but was blinding me. It rose in the air and headed
straight for our car as we traveled at 65 mph. As it got to about 300
away we both said, "What is that?" I could see that there was a cockpit
something under this huge black shape. I was screaming "What the Hell
that?" The cockpit was shinning an incredibly bright light with some
pulsating bands of red lights. The object approached and flew directly
the car. It easily matched our 65 mph speed and my friend looked up
of gasped. She said that the lights are alternating. "What is this?"
traveled southwest off to some low hills it disappeared. We both saw
same craft. When we got back to the cabin in 30 minutes we took out
paper and drew sketches of what we saw. The drawings matched! We called
Sheriff's office in Graham and asked about aircraft or helicopters?
called the local small airport and they had nothing up. On Monday I
Carswell AFB and the DFW control center and they had nothing out that
that time. A trucker may have also seen the same object. Thanks to Peter
Davenport for sending this report. http://www.UFOcenter.com
TEXAS GREEN LIGHTS
ARLINGTON - Mike Harman reports seeing two bright green lights traveling
high rate of speed with an orange companion dancing around the lead
April 6, 2000, at 9:35 PM. What a treat! I had gone outside to observe
stars before going to bed and was standing facing south and looking
Orion Nebula. Something caught my eye coming over our house. Looking
directly straight up I observed two bright green lights similar to the
and brightness of a green traffic light. The green object was traveling
what looked like about four times the speed of jet aircraft and took
seconds to go from almost straight up to completely out of sight to
north. With binoculars I could see clouds behind the object and that
was no body or wings visible. I noticed an orange much smaller light
object dancing very rapidly back and forth going past the green objects
either direction. What I have described above was not the planet Venus
Jupiter, or a star. I was able to see both planets during this sighting.
also was not an aircraft, balloon or a helicopter as there was no sound.

CANADA FLYING SAUCER
YUKON -- Martin Jasek reports that on Thursday, March 30, 2000, a man,
woman and a young boy were traveling along the Klondike Highway from
Whitehorse to the Village of Pelly Crossing, at 5:00 AM. The sky was
with a glow of predawn blue. They were nearing the end of Little Fox
and came around a sharp right-hand bend near the base of a mountain.
coming out from the bend they saw at 300 feet away was a 35-foot in
saucer, hovering about 200 feet off the ground! They observed it to
stationary on the right for five seconds and than it shot across the
front of their vehicle at "incredible speed" and stopped instantly on
left side of the road. The witnesses said, "Nothing can move that fast,"
the blink of an eye!" It remained motionless for only another split
and shot off even faster performing a 90-degree turn and shooting off
them. One witness thought it went right into the side of a mountain
the other thought it followed the mountainous skyline. The passenger
"Come on, floor it!" They eventually pulled over about 20 minutes later

was a classic disc shape with a dome on top. The dome had two curved
or lights from which a beautiful ocean blue or aqua colored light was
shining. The surface of the craft was "mirror like, silver, translucent,
shiny, glassy, reflecting the color of the sky." It was as though the
was trying to "camouflage against the background sky color." "Had it
pitch black out I don't think we would have seen the body of the craft,
the windows or lights" the woman remarked. As the UFO streaked in front

They both wanted to check the time of their sighting. However, the woman's
battery-operated analog watch stopped (at 5:00 AM) and the man's digital
watch got stuck in chrono mode. Other than the initial power drain,
additional problems were noted with the truck. They managed to get the
watches functioning after 5 minutes and the tape deck started to work
minutes. No noise was heard emanating from the UFO. It was about 1 hour
35 minutes before sunrise. Thanks to Martin Jasek [email protected]

saw two more flashes near the Big Dipper at 8:30 PM. A man in a pickup
stopped and we all saw four flashes at different points in the sky.

sky which appeared to be moving and also becoming larger at 1l:40 PM.
brought it to the attention of my friend and we got out of my vehicle
watch. The light came directly at us and became very brilliant and enlarged
to the size of a basketball. It made a perpendicular course change and
traveled up into the sky where it made another course change and flew
space. This all took place in the matter of minutes without making any
The sky was clear with many stars and airplanes visible. Thanks to Murray
VANCOUVER, BC CANADA CHEMTRAIL -- A very large 'chemtrail' display was
again over Vancouver and surrounding areas on April 3, with several
other parallel patterns at an apparent fairly low altitude. I myself
witnessed this and took photos. Some of the 'plumes' were very wide,
eight initially at 1:30 PM. Some were crossing in large Xs, and others
in parallel trails throughout the afternoon. The sky became diffused
"milky haze." Reports are coming in from across Canada and the US. Thanks
SYDNEY -- After a 3-month lull, strange craft are flying again over
in They have the same laser-like, white pulsing light, quick vertical
movements. They avoid nearby planes. Hence the increase in reports is
probably real, and possibly worldwide. I learned recently of a glowing
UFO which collided with a police car here in 1987 Thanks to Red Setter
THE SHUTTLE DISCOVERY STS-48 MYSTERY
By this time, most people have heard of the odd events of September
16, 1991, which occurred during the STS-48 fight of space shuttle Discovery.
Some claim that all of the objects seen are UFOs. NASA claims that all
the objects are ice and debris sparkling in the light of the rising
NASA further claims that any directional changes in the motion of these
objects are caused by an automated firing of the aft RCS jets aboard
shuttle. To be sure, some of what is observed in the videos is ice,
debris and the RCS jet did fire during the time frame in question. NASA
the computer records to prove this. However, NASA's blanket explanation
the events, based on these facts, doesn't cover everything, which took
This scene called event #2, is shot from the forward payload bay camera,
was taken at local sunrise over the Philippine Islands. South is up,
is to viewer's left, and we see the limb of Earth, some stars over the
horizon, and a series of bright objects above the dark portion of Earth.
Some of these bright dots are dirt on the camera lens. Some others are
drifting ice and or debris. These pop into view as the sun comes up.
what I believe to be a much more distant object rises up out of the
well after the other objects have appeared. As this object travels south,
and gains altitude, a flash is seen from the aft direction of Discovery.
Shuttle computer records verify that this flash is an RCS jet firing,
is done periodically to MAINTAIN ship's attitude. Thus there is no
noticeable change relative to the horizon. Some of the objects in view
appear to respond to the expanding exhaust plume, and are appropriately
diverted from their previous course. However, the distant object suddenly
diverts 135 degrees and speeds out into space, followed by two streaks,
of which might have hit it had it not moved out of the way. NASA claims
the relative motion of this object is caused by the RCS jet firing but
makes no sense. The RCS jets are mounted on the extreme nose and tail
Shuttles. They fire vertically, and in the vacuum of space, the exhaust
plume expands upward in a teardrop shape. The aft thrusters are some
25 feet away from the camera, and even further away the debris field.
Objects nearer than the controversial one are barely affected. The RCS
plume could not have greatly influenced our anomalous object at the
it MUST be from the jet plume.
Therefore, I conclude that the object must be independently propelled.
are two streaks of light, which seem to be aimed at the object in question.
It has been claimed that these streaks are some kind of new particle
laser weapon. Granted, the streaks do resemble a weapon salvo. But,
can not be lasers or particle beams. Both of these type beams move at
speed of light, which would render them invisible in space, or at best,
would appear to the human eye as a solid shaft (like a Star Trek Phase
rather than something seen to move from left to right at a 45-50 degree
angle. Further, these angles preclude their origin being the RCS jet
way back on the tail of the ship. Therefore, I conclude that the streaks
something other than energy weapons. I know of no missile technology
of moving at the velocities observed in the video. So we are left with
If these are alien craft, perhaps they are shooting at each other for
unknown reason. In any case, something strange and unidentified with
Earth based phenomenon took place. And NASA is using the demonstrable
that some of the objects and occurrences are linked to ice, dirt, and
jets to dismiss the entire event. Something is being deliberately covered
here. Thanks to Jeff Challender
