According to Renato Vesco and David Childress authors of "Man Made UFOs 1944-1994," Mantel's last words over the radio were, "My God! There are men in it!"
The Pentagon's order to cease and desist was heard by Clements, but not
by Mantell, and must have been intended to avoid such an incident, based on prior knowledge by
Pentagon personnel as to what could happen. Otherwise, there is no case in which the Pentagon
has ever ordered the U.S.A.F. to cease pursuit of any "unidentified" aircraft, while flying over the
continental U.S.A. The parts of Hynek's report which were false, due to critical omissions and
misrepresentations—since Clements told his story to me the same as he told Hynek—were related
to the facts that they clearly pursued a flying saucer, that Clements was in view of Mantell's plane
at the time of the explosion, that radio contact had been obviously broken with Mantell due to the
electric field of the saucer, and that the Pentagon had caEed off the pursuit immediately on
notification, prior to the incident. This incident has been rehashed over and over, and Clements was
very clear on the fact that it was a flying saucer, and not a "weather balloon" as the government
later tried to fabricate.
