Does the Government have film footage of a UFO landing at Holloman AFB?
Did non-human entities exit the disk and communicate with the base commander?
What was so different about the appearance of these aliens as compared to those we hear about today?
May, 1971. Three disk shaped craft appear over Holloman AFB in the deserts of New Mexico. One craft lands, three humanoid occupants emerge and are greeted by scientists and military representatives. They retire to a building where they meet for several hours. All or most of the landing episode is captured on several hundred feet of 16 mm. movie film.
A few years later, the film production team of Alan Sandler and Robert Emenegger, noted individually for their work with such well known clients as Bank of America, Armand Hammer, and Richard Nixon, are contacted by high ranking Pentagon and Air Force personnel. The Defense Department wants to improve its image with a series of documentaries on space science breakthroughs in areas such as atomic fusion, 3-D moving holography, mind to computer communication, and the amazing capabilities of animals being trained for use in warfare.
It is suggested that a documentary to capitalize on the public's fascination with UFOs is a possibility. A carrot is dangled in the form of a promise that the Holloman landing film can be used for the project. Sandler and Emenegger decide to use it as the stunning climax to a full length documentary portraying the history of the UFO phenomenon.
In an unprecedented move, full cooperation is given by the Air Force and Pentagon as well as past Blue Book officials, NASA, and leading sociologists and psychologists. However, at the last minute the promised use of the Holloman film is withdrawn. It is suggested that the landing be simulated while speculating that this event might have happened in the past or could happen in the future.
Despite being denied access to the actual Holloman film, the documentary UFOs, Past, Present and Future is completed in 1974 with Robert Emenegger writing the script as well as an accompanying paperback book of the same title.
A classic in its field, with Rod Serling, Jose Ferrer, and Burgess Meredith hosting this well researched NBC Special, it is nominated for a Golden Globe Award and receives a 48 percent share of the viewing audience.
In the late 1970s, Emenegger and Sandler update their documentary with new footage narrated by Dr. Jacques Vallee, the astrophysicist and prominent ufologist who was the model for the French scientist in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The updated version is entitled UFOs: It Has Begun.
Since then, rumors about the documentary have swirled through the UFO research community — rumors fueled by the unanswered questions: Did the producers actually see the Holloman film? Were they able to slip a small snippet of the film into their documentary? Who was Alphonso Lorenzo, an individual said to be intimately involved in the landing contact episode, and whose military records were later purged? Why did the military offer the use of the film initially and why was it withdrawn

Here's the full documentary.
Supposedly, the few seconds of a white object descending at Holloman AFB is a brief snippet of the actual film. It's at the very end of the documentary.
