This UFO "incident" is one that has got my attention as of recently.
During the early of December 14th, 1994, Trumbull County 911 in Youngstown, Ohio started receiving calls around midnight from residents saying that
one or more unidentified flying objects had been sighted around several neighborhoods close to Youngstown. The first actual call about the ufos came
into Liberty Townships' own dispatch office just before midnight. The first caller, a female, reported an object flying at a very low altitude close
to her residence. It was after this when police units started reporting on the objects in several different townships. One of the officers assigned to
the call to find out what it was that was causing the disturbance stated, "That after he had gotten through with talking to a gentleman that was
walking his dog, this bright, white light appeared out of nowhere and completely turned off his patrol car's engine and radio.
That is when officers from at least three other townships sighted the objects flying at a low altitude. One officer even stated that he could clearly
make out a structure above the flashing lights. This was accomplished with the use of high powered binoculars according to the officer that had
described the object over the radio to the dispatcher. It was believed that it was only one unidentified flying object which was causing all of the
ruckus. That was until an officer with Liberty Township climbed up to the top of an old radar site just outside of Cortland Township. This radar post
was said to be the highest vantage point in Trumbull County. It was then that he realized that these were not any fixed wing aircraft or helicopter.
When giving his account over the radio to the dispatcher, he clearly stated that he had four distinct colors flashing in front of him. Those colors
were red, green, yellow, and blue and they were changing colors in tandem with each other. Now what is strange about this is that he also states that
he sighted aircraft taking off from the National Guard base in Vienna. Could these craft have been scrambled to go and "check" to see what exactly
was being sighted by these officers and the general public?
It was after the first call that authorities at the Air National Guard base in Vienna, Ohio was notified of the occurances. When contacted, the base
stated that they did not have any known flights that would have been in the area of Youngstown at the time. When the first reports started to come in,
the dispatcher on duty was told to notify the Federal Aviation Administration's Regional Office for Northeast Ohio. When contact was made with the
FAA, which is at the the base, the controller on duty stated that he had no visual or radar on anything with in a sixty mile radius of Youngstown.
Just to give you guys an idea of where the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport is. It is located off of Interstate 70 between Youngstown and Warren,
Ohio. The Air National Guard base in question is on the same premisses as the airport. If the controller did not have a visual or a radar hit on any
of the objects. If this is the case, then it is contrary to what the civilians and the police officers were reporting to 911.
At the same time that the call came was placed to the FAA Tower at the airport, an officer from Howland Township and a security guard at the base also
had visual on the object from where they were at. It just so happened to be that the officer and the security guard were standing next to each other
when the both of them had visuals on the objects as well. Then if these two folks also had a clear visual on the objects. Then why did the operator in
the control tower at the airport state differently?
What is not widely known about this is that a news reporter from WYNT-TV 33 out of Youngstown had been made aware of the ufos being seen in the area
due to several phone calls that had came into the television station reporting the objects. It was then that the reporter decided to investigate the
incident. When investigating, she had discovered that after the sightings had ceased, the controllers that were on duty at the time of the sightings
had been transferred to other airports in the area. This reporter was also heard on the 911 tapes on the events of that December night inquiring about
the ufo situation that was going on. Also, this reporter was aware of both the security guard from the air base and the officer from Howland Township
both having visuals on the object.
There are a few questions that I still have about the incident and they are as follows:
1. Why was an FAA controller at the closest airport saying that he had no visual or radar contact with any objects within sixty miles of Youngstown,
Ohio? When it was clear to the police dispatchers and their superior officers that officers out in the field were reporting that at least three
distinct objects had been sighted and documented by officers that had witnessed the crafts flying over. If he "said" that he could not see anything
from either his vantage point or on radar. What about the officer from Howland Township and the guard at the air base who also had a visual on the
objects at the same time the officers from the other townships? Where these officers seeing something that FAA operator had absolutely refused to pay
attention to even though the controller was located at the top of a seventy foot high building? I would think that if you are up in a seventy foot
high air traffic control tower, you would at least be able to see what the people on the ground were seeing.
2. Did the FAA controller also see the objects but stated otherwise when contacted by the chief dispatcher for Trumbull County 911?
3. When the incident was taking place that night, why were fighter jets from the air base scrambled to intercept and investigate what was being
sighted? Had the air traffic controllers somehow got in contact with the base commander who then ordered the aircraft to be sent up after these
unidentified flying objects?
4. When a reporter from the local television station had called both the 911 center and the air guard base. A) Why did the FAA controllers at the
airport state that there wasn't anything in the air around the area when it was clear to people on the ground that there was? B) Why did the base
commander state that he did not have or know of any fighter jets when at least four jets were scrambled to go and investigate?
5. Why had this news reporter kept what she had found out about that night in the dark for at least four years until she was interviewed by a ufo
investigator from Cincinatti? Could it be that she was afraid that the News Director would get a hold of the story and make a mockery of the
dispatchers at the Trumbull County 911 Center?
