South Africa's own Roswell
On May 7, 1989, Louw told the Saturday Star newspaper, the South
African Airforce shot down a UFO travelling at a speed of around
5,746 nautical miles in the skies over the Kalahari Desert near
the country's border with Botswana.
When intelligence officers arrived at the site where the object
had crashed, they found a large craft that emitted a strong
magnetic and radio field in a 12 metre deep crater with a
diameter of 150 metres, the newspaper reported, quoting him.
Two 'humanoid entities' were found inside the UFO - or what non-
ufologists would call a 'flying saucer,' according to Louw.
'They apparently had greyish-blue skins and no body or facial
hair,' he told the newspaper adding: 'Their heads were much
larger than a human's, their necks exceptionally thin and their
hands had only three digits, which were webbed.'
The top-secret document indicated that the passage of the object and creatures would be implemented on the 23rd of June, 1989 to Wright Patterson AFB. Actually, sources DO indicate that Wright Patterson DID IN FACT GO ON RED ALERT on that date. Subsequent documents supplied by the Intelligence source to Q.I. indicate that the creatures seemed to have a strong connection with the SAURIAN race which existed in ancient times.
We would never have known about this case if an Air Force Intelligence officer hadn't come forward with the story. His credibility has since been found to be very dubious, however through diligent research many aspects of the case were substantiated. The cherry on top here was (apparently) that South Africa received nuclear weapons in exchange for what was recovered. The level of secrecy around this case is mind-boggling.
Dipl.-meteorologist Elizabeth Klarer caused an international controversy with her claim of a contact with Extraterrestrials. Her book "Beyond the Light Barrier", written more in the style of a romantic novel, caused a rather sceptical response, since Klarer claimed she became pregnant after her encounter with a tall, white-haired spaceship-pilot.
Certain highly advanced technologies have been recovered from downed craft and/or in exchange programmes with extraterrestrials. Examples of this are believed to be lasers, holograms, night-vision, Velcro, microwave applications, fibre-optics, the computer integrated circuit and probably many more…

South Africa is the only country in history to build nuclear weapons in secret and then dismantle them voluntarily.
The payoff for Pretoria has been access to the high-tech and military markets of the industrialized countries.
There were pictures of the aliens

That's a picture the world deserves to see, shame they ignored you??
I wonder if that's it, and we are never gonna see that picture again, pictures of actual aliens is something else.

As I said in RiotComing's thread:
"I was 9 year old in 1989 and clearly remember an article in a local (South African) mainstream magazine. There were pictures of the aliens (one was captured alive, and the other was dead) - showing one of them in a prison cell. I was up to date unable to locate the picture(s) and unable to find a back-issue of the magazine (You/Huisgenoot). I'm planning to go to the local public archives, but just can't find the time to get around to it."
Since then I visited the National Archives in Pretoria - they don't keep archives of the magazine in question. I wrote an email to the magazine's library, only to be ignored. Another UFO nutcase in their eyes? A dead-end none-the-less.

does it not strike you as peculiar that NO ONE but you seems to have noticed this major revalation in mainstearm media ??
i have no idea when SAUFOR was formed -- but even if it did not exist in 1980s there would have been other groups and individuals , ADULTS who would collect and keep clipings and archives -- and share them with like minded fellows
UFOology was not a new phenonemon in the late 80s , why was the story not re printed in other venues ???
you may have seen a photograph , when you were 9 -- but reccoloections mutate over time -- and the fact that only you seem to recall this version of events after 17 years , should make you question the faliability of your own memories
because the alternative is an open ended conspiracty to " surpress and destroy " all trace of the story / picture
which is most probable ??
