Interesting John Lear used to be a member and have his own area as well. John was very active for a time and had lots of friends here, then he bowed out.
You can search John Lear and find his threads and posts.

i wish we could get some new stuff on ufo's, abductions, mib etc. seems the whole phenomenon has died off the last 2 decades. i mean we have ancient aliens and such but that has done more to hurt the research then anything imo. just odd how we basically have nothing new for the past 20 years or so. it just fell off the map and on top of that people have the ability to capture high quality video unlike ever before with our phones.

This is an interesting bit of UFO History.
According John Lear (Father founded the Lear Jet corporation) and others, the Pentagon wanted to release a partial UFO disclosure documentary around 1973. This was the first attempt by the government to release information to the public.
The result of this motivation was a documentary released in 1973, hosted by Rod Serling, creator of the series - The Twilight Zone. The documentary was called: UFO'S: It Has Begun. Originally it was supposed to be called: UFO's: Past, Present and Future. It was produced by a CIA front Sandler Films.
In the end of the film, it was supposed to show the actual landing at Holloman, according to Lear. In 1964, a UFO landing took place at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico with humanoid extra terrestrials coming out resulting in a meeting. A person he mentioned at Norton air Force base watched this film in its entirety and was convinced it was a real event. It showed 3 saucers, one landing, and 3 people coming out. "They were humanoid but slightly different than us.. They had a weapon.. And this film was supposed to be shown in the last part of the film.. At the last minute, the Pentagon withdrew the film and said 'we want you to not use this film but depict the end in terms of it may of happened..' ". And this is exactly what they have done in the film.
You can watch the film in its entirety and I have included a link to Lear's interview and other related links:

John Lear is a bigger lier than Bob Lazar. His bullcrap knows no bounds. Aids was created by the Navy, bases on the moon, Lear slings it like no other before or since. I thought people knew this?
 Lunar Exploration - Apollo-type manned missions to continue exploration of the Moon should proceed. The launch rate should permit maximum responsiveness to new discoveries while maintaining mission safety and efficient utilization of support personnel. Early upgrading of lunar exploration capability beyond the basic Apollo level including enhanced mobility capability, and lunar rovers, is important to safe and efficient realization of significant returns over the longer term. An orbiting lunar station, followed by a surface-base, building upon Earth orbital space station and space transportation system developments, could be deployed as early as the latter half of the decade. Extension of manned lunar activity beyond upgraded Apollo capability should include consideration of these options.
