The pdf file in the post above goes into more detail but, as far as I'm aware, all the case reports are correct and it does contain some very interesting information - its definitely up there as one of the best documentary films on the UFO subject (IMHO) and well worth a watch on a rainy day.

That's great to know because many of the documentaries of that era were more about sensationalism than accuracy. Though I suppose, the more things change...
Holloman AFB UFO Landing.
The Holloman AFB UFO landing event was featured in Robert Emenegger's/Alan Sandler's 1974 documentary 'UFO's: Past, Present and Future', and in an updated 1979 version 'UFOs: It Has Begun'. These documentaries were both narrated by Rod Serling. Towards the end of the documentary, a 'what if' scenario was presented to the viewer about a landing that could happen in the future, or perhaps already could have happened…
"Let us look at an incident that might happen in the future, or perhaps could have happened already. The premise is that contact is made by extraterrestrial beings with representatives of the United States Air Force at Holloman Air Force Base in the deserts of New Mexico."
Rod Serling goes on to narrate the Holloman landing event which consisted of illustrations of the landing and the aliens meeting Air Force officials. These illustrations were inter-cut with actual footage from the base. At one point in the re-enactment there is footage of a strange white-yellowish object descending towards the base, with the mountains in the background (some people have suggested it is part of the authentic UFO landing tape that slipped though).

Interesting find Karl, I hadn't heard that before, thanks for pointing it out...
It's pointed out in this vid, and yes that footage doesn't seem to "fit"...

Awesome clip!!! I'd heard about this and it is indeed incredibly interesting. the alleged 'real' footage is totally incongorous to the shots either side, the 'filler' footage of the base, watch tower and the view of mountains.
The Joiner Report – Robert Emenegger Interview
Robert Emenegger wasn’t born an UFOlogist. As revealed by others now researching and investigating ufology, chance happenings can entice one into this intriguing venture.
Emenegger was a 1965 UCLA graduate in film with a minor in music and began work as a director for commercials for products such as Honda, Mattel, Taco Bell, MAX Factor and many more. He said he enjoyed writing the jingles for each one. His film studies followed, and he produced and directed ten original science fiction feature films and four television documentaries. He has won numerous first place awards and gold medals in domestic and foreign film festivals.
Emenegger said he began making these film specials out of curiosity. However, in 1973, his working in the paranormal arena became all too real. Officials at California’s Norton Air Force Base suggested to him and fellow producer Allan Sandler a documentary film that incorporated UFO information, including as its centerpiece the genuine footage of a 1971 UFO landing at New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force Base and communication with an alien group. Although promised, no film was ever presented. The documentary, hosted by Rod Sterling, Jose Ferrer, and Burgess Meredith, was released in 1974 as “UFOs: Past Present and Future” and won a Golden Globe Award. The alleged Holloman UFO landing was discussed in the documentary and depicted with illustrations. It was later updated and released as “UFOs: It Has Begun.” Even after 35 years, it is an experience to be shared and questions yet to be answered.
As noted ufologist Grant Cameron once stated, “Bob Emeneggar’s story is potentially the best UFO story of all times.”
'UFOs Are Real'

It's almost creepy how his name keeps popping up in investigating these specials...
