Very very similar to the "Mantell Affair" which Gazrock so eminently details on this forum.
Contains detailed info on both the incident and Valentichs` ongoing conversation Air Traffic Control.
Australia / New Zealand had a significance of very unusual episodes with UFO encounters about this time....a family in a car was partially
"abducted" on a deserted highway, the car was apparently lifted in the air....police estimated in their report that the car appeared to have been
dropped from a great height... etc etc etc and the car itself was last seen at fairs and circuses.
I will look in my files for exact details but it was a wierd case.
There was also the television channel which sent a camera crew on a flight after continuing sightings of UFOs over both New Zealand Islands.
They got good pictures.
Again I will search in my files for more decent information.
