Dont know if posted yet, but havent the patience tonight to read through any further.....
Wilbert Smith carried a piece of a UFO that was shot away from it by .50 cal machingun fire.
The UFO was one of those small remote jobs about 2-3 ft diameter, and a pilot in a P51 mustang took a whack at dogfighting this thing.
He saw something shiny metalic fall away from the little devil as he fired a long burst at it, sort of like a hail mary pass.
Going back on the ground, to the scene of the aireal joust, he was lucky twice, and managed to find the jagged chunk of metal.
Many witnesses have seen this piece back then.
This is the only instance i am aware of where a UFO was actually shot and damaged(though not downed) by aireal gunfire.
I asume that it was possible because the scout disk was not equipped with a full spectrum array of the ET technology.
More likely it was a remote drone
The Kentucky family who shot at several ETs said bullets had little effect on them.
I believe that we have tried many more times than we imagine.
During the fifties and sixties, we know a period of that was covered by a shoot on sight order.
Staunton Friedman, UFO researcher and FOIA expert by now, has intimated over four hundred aircraft were lost in attempting to bring one down.
There definately were russian attempts as well....some of these have been already documented.
From what i have read somewhere, an anti aircraft missle unit in germany, got a lucky nike missle into a UFO at almost point blank range, and brought
it down during an exercise of nato.
The tale of the powerful radars being responsible for the two saucers crashing near roswell, is also a good possibility, though id rather we could get
some physicist to explain how powerful radars screw up antigravity, or anti magnetic propulsion(against the earths magnetic field)
I dont question the possibility, just need clarification....
Thailand, has also opened fire on UFOs, as i recall, the chief airmarshall has stated thus.
how successful they were, i cannot say.I think the Congo too has shot at one....
There have been other incidents you can be sure, just what the outcomes mostly were, we can only speculate, but i am sure the score is in favour of
