One thing I was waiting to see in the files was some letters from Philip Klass. It appears his research into the case didn't involve much...research?
In 1992 Parnet/MICAP (MICAP was begun my Mike) flew me and Klass into Denver. There was surprisingly quite a bit of publicity given this event on local media.
The debate itself became very infamous because of something Phil Klass alleged. We were discussing several then well known UFO events and the case of Fredrick Valentich was raised. (Valentich on Wikipedia) Klass claimed that Valentich was smuggling drugs because he had 4 life preservers on board his aircraft. I landed on Klass Hard in the debate. This totally unsubstantiated claim by Klass was eventually discovered by Valentich’s family who were rightly outraged.
After reading your OP and glancing over the images i did notice one thing in the possible conclusions, that they put the UFO explanation on top as possibility A (most likely?)
Or i'm just reading too much into it.

There was more to this story. The Russians supposedly picked up a UFO investigator on the Russian-Chinese border who had a capsule that he found containing a message from Valentich. The message purportedly said that he had been abducted and had become a transport pilot for an alien ship that was harvesting oxygen from the planet...

Living in the US, I never heard about this incident before. Thanks for posting.
...."Were there ever reports of similar crafts after this incident during the next few weeks?"....
Thank you, Kandinsky, for an informative, well researched post. It is people like you that remind us that the 1/2 of one percent of genuine UFO sightings are indeed mysterious and worth investigating.
I have not read through all the links yet, but I wondered if anyone had kept up with the girlfriend. Is she still around, or did she eventually "disappear" as well? Just wondering, as he said he wouldn't leave without her.
There was a meteorite shower in that area that ightt is it not possible the object he saw was a meteor? he did say the object was "not a plane". He then could havebeen hit by another meteor the metalic scraping sounds heard on the audio could be the sounds of the impact?
