Newspaper article dealing with UFO incident over the Savannah river Atomic plant:
On November 6th, 1957, The Washington Daily News ran several interesting detailed stories about close encounters, including one with beings from a landed vehicle.
There is (or was) a newspaper called "The Washington Daily News." Several newspapers around the United States bear this same name. However, it seems likely that the following photocopy which documents UFO encounters was taken from a newspaper in the Aiken, South Carolina area. This location is referenced by the main story with the headline.
The Atomic Energy Commission referenced here was renamed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission some years ago, which still exists today. It regulates all radioactive materials and nuclear reactors.
Over the past 50 years, close encounter stories like these no longer appear in city newspapers. Perhaps newspapers today are prohibited from running these kinds of stories.
UFOs and Nukes.
Robert Hastings says for the last 30 years the Freedom of Information Act has helped declassify thousands of documents about UFOs. He says a number of them deal with UFO activity at nuclear weapons sights.
Over the last 35 years, Hastings has interviewed former and retired Air Force personnel and he says they've gone on the record saying that saucer shaped objects have appeared above missiles just before they malfunctioned.
During his hour presentation this evening, Hastings' goal was to let the public know what he's found from declassified information. Hastings says he has a message for non-believers.
"There is a distinct and fundamental difference between having an opinion and having an informed opinion. I've done the research for 30 years and they haven't. If they wish to indulge themselves with their uninformed opinion there is nothing I can do about that," said Hastings.
Robert Hastings has a message for UFO non-believers.
In a well-documented series of incidents in early November 1975, nocturnal lights and unidentified “mystery helicopters” visited a wide spectrum of American military bases and missile sites across the northern tier of this country. Between October 27 and November 10, reports of UFOs over nuclear weapons storage sites were repeatedly made at Loring AFB in northern Maine, Wurtsmith AFB in Michigan, Grand Forks and Minot Air Force Bases in North Dakota, and Malmstrom AFB in Montana. F-106 interceptors were scrambled out of Malmstrom AFB near Great Falls, Montana in response to multiple reports of UFO visits to nearby missile sites near Moore, Harlowton, Lewistown, and several missile sites around Malmstrom AFB.
UFO's were habitually reported from areas around "technically interesting" places.....
