Thanks for getting back to me
That is interesting, as it might explain why the craft chose there to land. There are numerous reports of UAP (Unexplained Aerial Phenomena) craft being observed hovering over water and in some cases, sucking it up into the craft. Hydrogen fuel perhaps???

I have difficulty believing case number 2.
How can his truck engine restart just like that after it stalled?
How can an object electromagnetic field could trigger the starter motor and the spark plugs? It make no sens when you think about how a engine work

Thanks for that PDF link
It gives me a better idea of the area.
Good luck with the camp out. Wish I was able to drop everything and get over there. I'm jealous ;-)
Let us know when you get the footage. I would simply love to see how it looks now - 30 years on.

Case 1 of great interest to me as the incident took place only several hundred meters from a school I used to go to (Deans community high school) from 1982.
The incident was well known among the pupils at the school and weirdly when anyone talked about the UFO incident voices would drop and not long after would come talk of men in black.
At the time I became almost obsessed with the story and strangely I felt extremely jealous of Mr Taylor. For some reason I had thought he had not been worthy and he had blown it.
I do not know why I had that attitude but I was pretty withdrawn at the time and on the outside of my peer group, writing, reading and art when my so called peer group were doing the girl/boy thing.
At one point I even wanted to write an essay on the incident at the time but was warned off by my teacher and some of my fair-weather friends as the Mr Taylor was known as a bit of a recluse and some said he was more likely to shout at me or set a dog on me rather than talk to me about what happened.
Some had told me he still suffered physically from what happened and these accounts differed from joint pain to burns that never healed. I cannot verify that as it was just the stuff that was always talked about when the mention of Mr Taylor’s demeanour became brought up in conversation.
I was a teenager so unhappily I took the hint not to visit Mr Taylor but I did go and visit the site on my own in the evening after school one day. I was told that I would not be able to mistake the site as there was an obvious depression where nothing ever grew.
There was also another rumour that went around – the depression was scattered with tiny dark metallic spheres lying just below the surface and some people in the area had even collected them. Then apparently government officials came along one day and removed everything.
The depression was still there when I visited it in 1982 and it was quite unnerving to be standing in the centre of this twenty foot wide circular depression with trees all around me in a scattered hilly copse. Though it was getting dark I could still see and the rumours about the ground being devoid of vegetation was false but one thing that was noticeable at the time was that the depression did have growth. However it was stunted and sickly looking and nothing like the similar vegetation outside the depression.
Where it should have been green like the vegetation outside the hollow it instead had a yellowish tint to it and I felt tense as if being watched. When I left the area and passed by my school, heading for the golf course I felt much better and relaxed but by the time I got home it was dark and I swore never to go up to Dechmond hill again.
One of my friends years later told me that one of her friends not within our circle of acquaintances had visited the site during one day in summer and been scared off by three creepy looking men dressed in black.
From what was said to me, the men in black never said a thing when they started walking calmly towards her as she stood on the outside of the depression. At that point she took off running.
I cannot say this is true or not as it is could just be a layer of fables springing up to add more depth by bored or imaginative youth but my friend telling me the story is not known to be a bare faced liar and when she told me she was quite nervous to the extent she hushed almost to a whisper. You will find few in Livingstone who would say the story was a fake.
Mr Taylors name is still mentioned and the incident is still talked about in Livingston. It is known worldwide as the Derchmont incident but the spelling is wrong. It is Dechmond hill.
I might take a drive out someday to see if they ever did anything with the hill like developed it or something. Livingston has grown into a large town since the days I lived there.
I guess if you hit Google earth with the name Deans community high school you would spot the area of the UFO incident easily enough. It is beyond a field and in a small copse of trees or at least it was the last time I was there).
Between the golf course and the school, draw a line straight up away from the main road. You should be heading right towards the site.
