1967: PHYSIOLOGICAL CASE AT FALCON LAKE, CANADA
The experience of Stephen Michalak in the Falcon Lake area in Manitoba, at noon on May 20, 1967, is a CE-II (Close Encounter of the Second Kind) on two counts: physical traces were found on the area where the UFO reportedly landed, and the witness experienced a series of physiological effects apparently linked to his close encounter with a metallic-looking, disc-shaped object. Michalak is an industrial mechanic from Winnipeg who was doing some amateur prospecting in the area.
\"A Mr. Steven Michalak of Winnipeg, Manitoba reported that he had come into physical contact with a UFO during a prospecting trip in the Falcon Lake area, some 90 miles east of Winnipeg on the 20 May 67. Mr. Michalak stated that he was examining a rock formation when two UFOs appeared before him. One of the UFOs remained airborne in the immediate area for a few moments, then flew off at great speed. The second UFO landed a few hundred feet away from his position. As he approached the UFO, a side door opened and voices were heard coming from within.
\"Mr. Michalak states he approached the object but was unable to see inside due to a bright yellow bluish light which blocked his vision. He endeavored to communicate with the personnel inside the object [in English, Russian, German, Italian, French and Ukrainian], but without result. As he approached within a few feet of the object, the door closed. He heard a whining noise and the object commenced to rotate anti-clockwise and finally raised off the ground. He reached out with his left gloved hand and touched the object prior to its lifting off the ground; the glove burned immediately as he touched the object.
\"As the object left the ground, the exhaust gases burned his cap, outer and inner garments, and he sustained rather severe stomach and chest burns. As a result of these he was hospitalized for a number of days. The doctors who attended and interviewed Mr. Michalak were unable to obtain any information which could account for the burns to his body. The personal items of clothing which were alleged to have been burnt by the UFO, were subjected to an extensive analysis at the RCMP Crime laboratory. The analysts were unable to reach any conclusion as to what may have caused the burn damage.
\"Soil samples taken by Mr. Michalak from the immediate area occupied by the UFO were analyzed and found to be radioactive to a degree that the samples had to be safely disposed of. An examination of the alleged UFO landing area was made by a radiologist from the Department of Health and Welfare and a small area was found to be radioactive. The Radiologist was unable to provide an explanation as to what caused this area to become contaminated.
\"Both DND and RCMP investigation teams were unable to provide evidence which would dispute Mr. Michalak\'s story.\"
\"Unexpectedly, the craft shifted position, and he was now facing a grid-like exhaust vent which he had seen earlier to his left. A blast of hot air shot on to his chest, and set his shirt and undershirt on fire, and also caused severe pain. He tore off his burning garments, and threw them to the ground. He then looked up in time to see the craft depart like the first, and felt a rush of air as it ascended... He walked over to where he had left his things, and noticed that his compass was behaving erratically; after a few minutes, it became still. He went back to the landing site, and immediately felt nauseous and a surge of pain from a headache.\"
Samples of soil and moss from the area, portions of the burned shirt, and a six-foot measuring tape which Mr. A had left behind were brought to city A. All three were radioactive. When sent to city B for analysis, they were found to be so strongly radioactive that the Radiation Protection Division of the Dept. of Health and Welfare considered restricting entry to the forest area from which they allegedly were taken.
Analysis by Mr. R. J. Traill (Head, Minerology Section, NRC)
I would interpret the specimens as pieces of thin sheet silver that have been twisted, crumpled, partly melted, and dropped into, or otherwise placed in contact with, nearly pure quartz sand, while still hot. They have subsequently been covered with loosely-adhering radioactive material which consists of crushed pitchblende ore, much altered to uranophane and containing associated hematite. These naturally-occuring radioactive minerals are found typically in the uraniferous deposits of . . . [River x] area and in parts of . . . [camp X]. In view of the thoroughness of earlier searches of the site for radioactive material, it is improbable that the particles discovered a year later would have been missed had they been present when the earlier searches were made.

This case was new to me -- so I added this vid to the thread if anyone has any new comments.
Best evidence I've seen for definite advanced propulsion technology. I think the witness' first guess of it being military and then trying out different languages -- despite not recognizing the sounds he heard of language from inside the craft -- to me this corroborates the witness credibility. Obviously if it was a secret military test flight they probably didn't want to make themselves known to a witness.

Unless the military still has craft secret that originated soon after WWII - that is the Tesla-Nazi explanation that I think is the best. Throw in Schauberger and John Keely and a few other mavericks working on electrogravitic propulsion.
Easily one of the top 5 cases in all Ufology and its from where i grew up.I dont believe Michalak was a hoaxer or in it for fame or notoriety.He was basically ridiculed for his story.He also paid the costs to visit the Mayo Clinic for tests after Winnipeg Hospitals were of little help.MP Ed Schreyer questioned the House Of Commons for more UFO information at the time but was cut off with no Government reply.
Im of the belief now that it was a version of the Avro the US was testing back then that had a run in with Michalak.

Just bumping this good thread with contributions and links posted by ATS’s top brains.
I’m particularly struck by the ‘beams of light running in horizontal and diagonal patterns’ that Michalak claimed to have seen when he poked his head into the craft. Normally beams of light aren’t visible so these may have been exotic ‘solid light beams’, perhaps akin to Bessel beams or ionic plasma waves, so characteristic of UFO supertechnology.
