Retired aerospace engineer and document researcher Dr. Robert Wood reviews the results of extensive research and forensic studies used to authenticate the SOM-101 Manual. Included will be discussions of interviews with retired government printing experts, style manual comparisons and witness interviews.
Nick and Ryan will provide a dozen suggestive and powerful irrefutable document examples from the National Archives and Presidential Libraries that show intense interest by our government with UFOs, crash retrievals, and the technology that these visitors offer. Links to the Majestic program will be examined.
For years you have heard about the PSA crash. Now hear the researcher and see the recently-retrieved material. Statements by Col. Philip J. Corso about the Plains crash will be presented, followed by a 24-minute video presentation of the artifacts found at the site. Other visual material will be shown in connection with this project, followed by a question and answer period. Art has uncovered some amazing artifacts from the site during 8 years of research, including something resembling a small artificial body part and some strange narrow shoe soles. This material and more will be shown in the visual presentations, including analyses of his finds by independent laboratories. You will want to see this presentation.
Jonathan Downes will be speaking about a 2-month expedition he made to Puerto Rico with a British TV crew in search of both UFOs and the Vampire-like Chupacabra that is rumored to haunt the forests of Puerto Rico. Downes will be discussing information he uncovered and cases he investigated relating to reports of UFO crash incidents in the Puerto Rican jungle and accounts of Chupacabra bodies recovered under cover of the utmost secrecy by the U.S. military.
It has been 25 years since I began the civilian investigation of the Roswell Incident involving the recovery by the U.S. government of the wreckage of a crashed flying saucer and its alien occupants near Roswell, New Mexico, (and another one in the Plains of San Augustin at the same time) in early July, 1947. For 19 years I have been working on the MJ-12 documents. Because of all the media attention, documentaries, books, papers, TV programs, videos, motion pictures, etc., Roswell has become a household name symbolizing flying saucers. For some, the MJ-12 documents are the epitome of fraud. Along with the trickle of investigation by serious researchers, there has been a flood of criticism of every aspect of the Roswell and MJ-12 stories. Unfortunately, the critics almost always follow the 4 basic rules of debunkers: A. What the public doesn't know, I am not going to tell them. B. Don't bother me with the facts, my mind is made up. C. If you can't attack the data, attack the people. D. Do your research by proclamation, investigation is too much trouble. There have been recent anti-Roswell stories featured in Popular Mechanics and Skeptic. An entire book "Case MJ-12" has been published attacking Majestic 12. None of these or any other attacks stand up to careful investigation. Two crashed saucers really were recovered in Southeastern New Mexico. Some of the Majestic 12 documents are indeed genuine.
Stan Gordon will discuss a December 1965 event that occurred about 40 miles from Pittsburgh in a rural area of western Pennsylvania in which many people saw a brilliant object moving across the sky followed by reports of a object crashing in the woods. The area around the alleged impact site was cordoned off and a search for the object was conducted. Neither civilians nor reporters were able to get near the spot where the object had reportedly fallen. Late that night, others say they observed a military flatbed tractor-trailer truck, carrying a large tarpaulin covered object, leaving the area at a high rate of speed.
The presentation will show two videotaped first hand interviews of hospital and ambulance workers that responded to a call from state police. Upon arrival, there were three small alien bodies and an extraterrestrial craft. The bodies were X-rayed and examined, but soon after the Air Force confiscated the evidence and told witnesses that "this never happened" and not to tell anyone.
The laboratory research of this phenomenon will be presented with videotape and slides.
Including the never-before-revealed official government list of Top Ten Reasons UFOs Crash, plus excerpts from the secret Air Force training film, "What To Do If An Alien Appears." Time allowing, Michael will also offer serious reflections on the multi-faceted UFO contact case of Stan Romanek.
Nick Redfern will be lecturing on accounts of reported UFO crashes in England dating from the Second World War to the present day and will present documents, photographs and additional materials relating to the cases in question. He will also address claims that alien bodies have been recovered and autopsied by the British military.
If we are to believe the official account, early on the morning of May 22, 1949, a despondent James Vincent Forrestal, former Secretary of the Navy, chief architect of our modern Department of Defense and recently retired as first Secretary of Defense, threw himself to his death from the 16th floor of the Bethesda Naval Hospital where he was being held under a round the clock Marine guard while being treated for depression. The Navy's five-month investigation concluded that Forrestal had taken his own life. The investigation report was then classified and remains so to this day. Peter Robbins will take us through a diverse body of evidence that counters the Navy's contention and makes the case for officially sanctioned murder with a most compelling motive.
Kenn Thomas, author of "Maury Island UFO: The Crisman Conspiracy," will discuss the evidence for a UFO event in 1947 near Tacoma Washington. The first UFO crash retrieval case also happens to be the first flying saucer incident of the modern era, preceding Kenneth Arnold's famous Mount Rainier sightings by three days. Often dismissed as a hoax, the Maury Island case involves the recovery of material from a craft that wobbled and spewed debris on a salvage boat in Puget Sound, near Tacoma, Washington on June 21, 1947. The debris killed a pet dog and wounded the arm of the son of Harold Dahl, the primary witness to the event. After recovering some of the flying saucer "slag," Dahl had classic Men In Black experiences -- including a missing time disappearance of his son -- and thereafter declared the incident to be a hoax. His partner on the salvage boat, Fred Crisman, who had his own sighting the following day, went on to a notorious career in ufology and in 1968 was subpoenaed by Jim Garrison as part of Garrison's investigation of the JFK assassination. Crisman later became a notorious celebrity, both on the UFO lecture circuit and as a talk radio personality and politician in Tacoma.
Matthew Williams will be lecturing on his research into the secret world of a British Royal Air Force base - RAF Rudloe Manor, that has become known as the "British Area 51" and the "British Hangar 18." Williams' investigations will detail the huge underground installation that exists below the base and address the claims that alien bodies and recovered UFOs are held deep under the English countryside and within the Rudloe caverns. Williams will also be speaking about the activities of Matthew Bevan, a computer hacker that attempted to uncover the UFO secrets of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base - the location to which wreckage from the famous Roswell incident was reportedly taken.
Reviews the evidence for an extraterrestrial spacecraft crash-retrieval in Cape Girardeau, Missouri in the spring of 1941, including document evidence and the testimony of Reverend Huffman, as related by his granddaughter Charlette Mann.
Greg Bishop will be speaking on his research into the story of Paul Bennewitz, who thought he had stumbled onto evidence of an alien invasion, but in the process was directing attention to secret projects at Kirtland Air Force Base, in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the early 1980s. The Bennewitz episode provided the blueprint for wild UFO conspiracy tales into the next decade, and a warning to researchers not to confuse the authority of the messenger with the truth of the message. Wild alien stories cooked up by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations that were fed to Bennewitz, and which began as a simple counterintelligence operation, backfired and led to renewed calls for disclosure of government UFO secrecy. The strangest part of the story is that Bennewitz actually had stumbled onto anomalous lights and signals that were confusing and worrying the Air Force, Defense Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Administration. Bennewitz also claimed that he had pictures of an atomic-powered aircraft crash site near Dulce, New Mexico. The story will be told through Bennewitz’ personal notes and correspondence, as well as some of the verified disinformation that was fed to him over a period of five years, leading to his eventual breakdown and institutionalization.
Grant Cameron's presentation is based on records found in the various presidential libraries. Statements made by presidents or members of their immediate cabinet will be also be discussed. The presentation will look at what these records and statements show in relation to UFOs and crashed saucer reports. The lecture will touch on still unresolved questions such as how much does the President know about UFOs or saucer crashes? Is he in charge? Are all presidents treated equally? Are presidents in the loop on UFO crashes or is there a secret MJ-12 type group answerable to no one?
