I was talking with this elderly gent once. My girlfriend's grandmother's boyfriend... We were sitting at the table and like I sometimes do, I
asked if he believed in UFO's. He slammed his fist down on the table and said Damn right I do, I've seen em
.. I asked him to tell me a few
stories... The stories are not verbatim as this was about 20 years ago.
He told me 'they' (saucers) would fly next to their planes (B52 bomber) just out of gun shot range. (He explained to me how bullets would start to
drop the further away from the firing gun) He said they fired at them a couple of times, but the bullets would just drop because of the range.
Another story... apparently there is a guy in a bubble on top of the plane (gunner?) He radioed the pilot (this gent) and asked if he could see what
he was seeing... The pilot looked up and could see a large cigar shaped UFO with little ships dropping from it. A mother ship he said. Apparently
they could judge the size by using the stars... He said it had to be Miles in size.
He also said that when he returned to base, he was debriefed. I asked what that meant and he said he goes into a room with another officer and he is
told he didn't see what he saw, he is never to repeat it, and I think he signs something... But, I guess it is a very serious forceful situation.
He said UFO's were seen all the time during the war... I can't remember if he referred to them a 'bogeys', I think he just said ufo's.
He said they used to drop bombs, as I guess they do in a B52 bomber... Something I had never thought about. He told me near the end of the war, they
would drop their payload (bombs) in the ocean and fly back. I asked him why he did that? He got a little angry and said the war was ending and he
didn't want to kill anymore people. He made it sound like a lot of pilots were doing it... in the end...
Another story he told me... and I have to admit, I'm not sure if it was the whiskey talking now.... I don't know anything about aerodynamics and
But he said he was flying his bomber and a UFO came straight at him... So fast, it zipped just over the plane and flipped the B52 over onto it's back
from the draft of the UFO. He said you can't get a B52 out of a dive, but he did. He said he crapped his pants but got the plane under control.
He seemed really credible as he was sharing stories with 'family'. I made the mistake of mentioning 'Aliens' and that is when Grandma got really
really upset and said something like 'God only created us. Period. End of discussion...'
And it was...
Anyway. Not a lot of detail about the ships. Large cigar shaped mother ships. typical saucers... FAST... Smart... Curious...
I tried to get it the best as I remember, like I said it was a few years ago to say the least... But I've repeated it a few times now, so it is
Hope it helps wiht your WW2 research.
