So, I've been thinking, as there is a current slump (it appears) in UFO activity (I believe such things are cyclic, and possibly next year will be a
big year), and there are so many hoaxes out there on the net these days, I thought I'd revisit some old cases and list five that really stand the test
of time for me. They probably aren't what you expect, but here goes....
Possibly not extraterrestrial, but certainly unknown, what Betty Cash and Vickie Landrum experienced definitely had an effect on them physically and
mentally - there is no doubt they experienced exposure to some kind of radiation/chemical agent. This incident happened the day after the Rendlesham
Incident in the UK. I've always wondered if what they encountered was actually one of ours
- possibly a test article of some kind of new
nuclear propulsion system (although there apparently was no trace of abnormal radioactivity in the area) or, possibly a live test of some form of
chemical warfare/hallucinagen spraying where they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Certainly a UFO in the true sense of being unidentified
and irrefutable that something happened to them.
When an experienced ex-fighter pilot turned Heavy Cargo jet Captain goes public and tells you his aircraft was followed by an object the size of two
aircraft carriers over Northern Alaska, its time to sit up and take notice. When the whole incident is recorded on audio, and on radar, and
corroborated by ground controllers and the rest of the aeroplane crew, and is unwavering to this day, its time to wonder what the hell these people
encountered. What started as two lights ahead of the plane and a question of whether there was military traffic in the area certainly escalated, and
pretty quickly. There are drawings out there made by the captain of what he saw, and it must have been terrifying and exquisitely tantalising at the
Zimbabwe School Landing
Kids make things up, right? Everyone knows kids are prone to flights of fancy. However, when 62 of them all claim that a UFO landed right next to
their school, the day after a mass UFO sighting in Zimbabwe, and that some form of alien entity approached them, scaring them half to death you have
to start to wonder what they saw. This case has baffled psychiatrists who have investigated it and walked away believing that the children are
definitely scarred from some kind of incident. The story has also stood the test of time, with the witnesses never changing any details as they have
grown up. It makes for interesting and (potentially) chilling reading.
Lonnie Zamora Incident
In recent years, people have tried to explain this case away, suggesting that Lonnie Zamora was the victim of a prank. I say that those explanations
are crap, bought about by someone trying to make a name for themselves in UFOlogy. Zamora was a well respected cop with no reason whatsoever to lie
about what he saw and this case has all the hallmarks of something unusual. Police officer sighting, corroborating witnesses to something unusual in
the area, ground evidence and traces of activity - so much so that J.Allen Hynek described it as a genuine unknown.
The Cosford Incident
This is one of EX-MOD investigator turned UFO researcher Nick Pope's favourite UFO incidents. That should be enough to pique anyone's curiosity and it
seems that something really rather huge and triangular shaped traversed a large chunk of British airspace in 1993. It was sighted by multiple
independent witnesses, including RAF personnel at two separate bases. Made even more unusual by the fact that there was satellite debris
re-re-entering the atmosphere at one point during the evening (the times of sightings differ from that of the re-entry) AND even more extraordinary by
the responses to Nicks investigation and answers/questions from the US government, this is one my standout cases, and one that keeps me looking up
hoping it'll come back one day.
There are other compelling cases, but I won't run through them all because I'm interested in what you guys might want to add to the list of "the best"
with one caveat - no Roswel (its been done to death) - throw some more of your faves at me, or give me your thoughts on what I've listed
