I know this is a fairly old thread, but I would like to see it rekindled. I am from Shag Harbour and have a fair amount of knowledge of the event, including speaking first hand with the researcher in charge of the 2009 dive to the site.
I am not necessarily a believer in the event in as much as it was a true UFO, but something did crash into the harbour in 1967. The Coast Guard was involved as was the RCMP.
The most interesting aspect for me was that none of the witnesses claimed a UFO. They reported a plane crash. The first reports of a UFO came from the government.
If anyone wants to keep this thread going, I will be more than happy to share any knowledge I have

What an OUTSTANDING presentation, very very well done! It still amazes me to this day how few Canadians know that this event even took place right in their own backyard..
One of the most extraordinary, UFO encounters of the twentieth century occurred in the tiny fishing community of Shag Harbor on the southern tip of Nova Scotia. This event, while relatively obscure in the sense of public awareness, is one of the most thoroughly and officially documented UFO encounters of the last 30 years, and is easily as sensational and as mystifying as the famous Roswell incident..
After about five minutes, the object started to sink beneath the icy North Atlantic waves. A few of the eyewitnesses reported hearing a "whooshing" noise. While the RCMP had already been in communication with the Canadian Cost Guard and Cutter 101 was on the way, two of the RCMP officers and a few local fisherman hurriedly launched their boats to speed to the rescue of any survivors.
As the small boats, and Cutter 101 reached the location, the lights were no longer visible but they found themselves sailing through a thick yellow foam, that indicated that something had submerged. The fisherman report that the foam was not sea foam, and looked like nothing they had ever seen. In fact most were unnerved by the fact that they had to sail through it to look for survivors.

What exactly did the plane crew say they saw? Also, I would like to know more about the "flare reports" if possible. Thanks for bringing us this information.
