So much for the debunkers claim that UFOs are always seen by one or two nut cases in some isolated spot. On the afternoon of 14March1951, while
watching the flight of a B-50, a team of nine men from the Bell Labs saw something that couldn't be identified in the skies above a viewing stand at
Holloman Air Force Base.
While watching the B-50 fly at about 15,000 feet, they noticed at a slightly higher altitude what at first seemed a flock of birds, weaving in a
random pattern. The 14-20 seemingly white objects formed up into a V on at least two occasions during the fifteen minutes they were observed, the last
time to fly off out of sight, "at a relatively high velocity".
During the test, the control tower was having problems with their communications to the plane, yet ground communications were not effected. Upon
landing, it appears that the plane was also experiencing radio problems at the time.
Dexter Rosen, Bell Labs Field Test Director and the writer of the report, was certain these were not birds, and "were different from anything" he
had seen before.
The report leaves no doubt that what these men, of some stature and to be considered reliable witnesses saw that day was in every sense of the word
UFOs. The report shows no doubt at all, even though they did try to compare the phenomenon to other things as they sought to rack their brains for an
This has to be one of the most solid sightings on record, at least as far as the witnesses.
