WESTALL '66: the sleeper awakes
The following 4 photos show (clockwise from upper left) Shane Ryan, George Simpson and myself (Bill Chalker) at the Westall April 2006 renunion which brought together many witnesses to the original event, including Joy and Jeff - witnesses to the 1966 Westall UFO incident. Jeff was the author of the student account in the Clayton Calendar. At the reunion I met researcher/director Rosie Jones and producer Carmel McAloon who were just beginning work on their documentary. The reunion led to a feature story in the Women's Day magazine: "We've Kept our UFO secret for 40 years."
Very interesting event.
One of the strangest UFO mysteries happened in the suburbs of Melbourne in the sixties - the sighting of a UFO at a local school by some 200 people.
You may have thought this would be big news - but it seems to have disappeared from history. Did it really happen?

Just a little dry humour my friend. I think this is one I'll keep on my interesting list.
But the weather balloon from Project HIBAL really was a theory put forward by Keith Basterfield. Flight 292 to be exact. The crux of the problem is that all the documents have been destroyed that could have proved/disproved the theory. This is not a case I know in any depth but it is similar to the Broadhaven School UFO from mid-70s in Britain and the later Ruwa, Zimbabwe case. Karl's links in the thread are great source of information BTW.
But alas this happened in 1966 and no one even had a camera on hand.
Who confiscated the pictures?
