One of the photos shows what looks to be a blemish in the sky and according to the programme this was confirmed by an Australian photographic lab as being "in the picture" and not dust on the lense or a photographic artifact. It was also sent to the US for research and the blot was confirmed as a solid object that appeared to be enveloped in a cloud of exhaust.

Mirageman, good call on that one mate -here's a close up of the object:

The final piece of this puzzle is the photograph taken by Roy Manifold. He had set up a timelapse camera to capture the sunset off the coast, but found something strange when developed. There appeared to be an unexplained object with an “exhaust cloud” in one of his pictures. According to Roy, these were taken just 20 minutes before Valentich’s last transmission. Experts at an Arizona-based UFO organization analyzed the photos and concluded that the object must be moving at 200 mph, or hovering stationary while the clouds zoomed past at that speed (an equally puzzling feat).

ETA - Season 6 Episode 2

@ 4:00 minute mark

Kandinsky, great find mate -I thought they'd removed every 'Unsolved Mysteries' UFO episode on the internet.

Is anyone able to save this one before the ******** take it down?

i read some of the debunker's explanations on this case and cannot help laughing / shaking my head in disbelief because their explanation are more improbable.

Flying upside-down making the engine stall : F.V are not flying in clouds with no sense of attitude, and the effect of flying upside-down are pretty noticable especially in small places.. as it is there are no reported instrument failure and i think the attitude indicator are one of instruments that not affected in encounters unlike compass.

FV himself putting on a show to Hoax everyone : ok this sounds like the debunkers grasping at straw, look for every explanation except the obvious ones..

Personally i think FV crashed in the water either CFT (Controlled Flight into Terrain) caused by the unknown object that terrorize him. The question now is this : what is the object that distract FV ? is it man-made ? Natural ? or Non-Natural ?

i re-read the Sea Fury incident and it seems the military pilot dont panic as much as FV.

Australian UFO researcher Keith Basterfield has been taking a fresh look at some of the original material on UFO reports from around the time that Valentich disappeared. He has compiled a catalogue of such reports, and started to analyse each individual incident.

The catalogue and analysis may be found at:

There were also quite a few reports from King Island, the destination which Valentich put on his flight plan. Courtesy of Keith Roberts of TUFOIC, Keith Basterfield has prepared a list of these events at:

Finally, Keith has also taken a look at the radio communications between Valentich and Melbourne Flight Control and found an old journal article which many ATS readers probably have never heard of. He reports on this article at

The Valentich case is fascinating case I still remember as a child seeing the headline on a newspaper for his disappearance. Personally I think he got taken by an Alien force. I doubt hes still alive but then who knows for sure.

Yes it was a big deal at the time....What a lot of people forget, was a day or so after this, several film crews from the various current affairs programs had cameras in light planes flying the same route, who Also recorded "Strange UFO like lights" in the night sky around the same area as FV reported them.
A coincidence maybe? Far away landing lights?.....No, Apparently UFOs!!
That story ran for quite a long time. Probably can be found somewhere on the net.

Good to see this case being discussed again. I have heard the recording, and the 'metallic' noise at the end is very strange. IMHO it does not sound like the black box recordings of commercial aircraft that crash. Admittedly, I have only heard these on TV programmes.

I also seem to remember a study by Philip Klass who put forward the idea that FV was either flying upside down or drug running (!), no source for that though but CSICOP does have a link to his work.
