If you want the scoop on the Valentich investigation, then speak to Paul Norman. He investigated the case from when it broke and has written many
articles on it.
You can see him at the Victorian UFO Research Society (VUFORS
) meeting nights, where he
sometimes presents his accounts of other cases.
Also, the most recent edition of The Ufologist
magazine has another article by Paul Norman, co written
with Richard Haines (I think). I left the bloody magazine at work, as I was reading it on Friday. On Monday, I'll add to this post. Damn, I should
have brought it home with me, as I could type from it now...
The article goes into detail about the location and timing of the witnesses who saw the green light over Valentich's plane.
The authors narrow down a possible area for which the plane may have crashed into and suggest that an intense search effort should be made. However,
they acknowledge that ocean currents over 30 years may have moved the wreckage, if the plane did crash.
As a side note, I was nearly seven when this happened and I still remember the news reports on local TV. It was big time. At the next VUFORS meeting
night (Monday 1st December), I'll ask if they have a copy of the actual recording between Valentich and MFS. I know they have listened to it, but
I'm not sure if it has been released to the public.
