While there was no suggestion that what the apparent whistleblowers were saying was true, some of the information they were pushing was intriguing. Furthermore, people should not be surprised if this might happen to him. And worthy of note. We didn’t know until we looked at it a little closer. She is certainly not alone in her assessment. Then the Lackland Air Force script stated: “The question now is not ‘IF?,’ but ‘WHY?’ and ‘WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?’ All sightings mentioned are authenticated as described in this broadcast. The Corps has operated the locks, toll free, since that time.”]. And the respective family members. Some are essential to make our site work; others help us improve the user experience. However, nothing at all came to light. This, incidentally, was not only completely false, but no such permission was requested. However, neither the American or Canadian Air Forces were particularly forthcoming regarding the find. They would rent the plane for exactly one hour and made sure there was three hours-worth of fuel in the tank. So the anomaly kind of stands right out to you. We don’t know what else lies beneath the sand. Especially those that are standoffish with such bizarre claims, to begin with. What can I tell you about it? However, in a case that is still wrapped in mystery and conspiracy, it is perhaps our duty to examine every possibility, no matter or bizarre, or indeed mundane. According to his version of events, two F-89 had scrambled that evening, but one of them had to almost immediately turn back to base due to a malfunction. The Air Force script began by summarizing official regulations about unsolved UFO investigations deliberately kept from the public. Except, he was able to “fill in the gaps”. No military agencies. It isn’t just UFO researchers and conspiracy theorists who have an interest in what happened to Felix Moncla and Robert Wilson. For example, he would highlight how the two pilots had no memorial performed in their honor as every member of the military who dies during active duty would do. II: High Strangeness in the Earthfiles Shop. The airplane disappeared at 7,000 feet also. IF YOU COULD THEN SPRAY OFF SOME OF THE COATING OF THE MUD AND SILT, YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SEE MORE CLEARLY WHAT THAT OBJECT IS. And is certainly something we should take into account here.

Other similar UFO incidents happened in the early 1950s. It would not distort. Of course, the F-89 remains the U. S. Air Force property, which is fully understandable. Claim: A missing airliner (Santiago Flight 513) mysteriously landed 35 years later with a cockpit and passenger cabin full of skeletons. And might, if all if this wild speculation is true, be why Moncla’s voice was still coming through the audio? Whatever the answers to those questions ultimately prove to be, it seems perfectly obvious that the truth of the matter is different from the official version of events. Anything is possible at this point, Linda. And perhaps one that is easy to overlook while researching the rest of the bizarre if grim case. Or might the account be genuine and the details simply mistaken decades later? Quite Obvious That Something Extraordinary Occurred. A discovery fifteen years after the incident would add yet another layer of intrigue and mystery to the whole affair. What’s more, side-scan sonar images of the apparent discovery were made available on the company’s website. No. In fact, to any level-headed investigator, it would appear that both the Great Lakes Dive Company and Adam Jimenez (at least the one claiming to represent the company) did not exist. Because of that visual distortion, we focused on that. And the two pilots. This company went by the name of the Great Lakes Dive Company. We’d take the sonar unit back to the corner about 200 feet away, it would distort. Heath’s research on the matter is perhaps one of the most detailed on record. For example, after first stating (indirectly) to the Associated Press that Moncla’s plane and the “bogey” had merged on the radar screen, they would then claim no such merging had occurred. No trace was ever found of the missing men, the F-89 or the UFO.’”. For example, according to a cousin of Moncla, Buddy Moncla, he is very much open to the notion that Felix was “snatched” by a UFO. Now, that’s assuming this (unknown round object) isn’t just a piece of something, but it would appear that both things went to the bottom in their entirety. You may republish short quotes from this article with a reference back to the original UFO Insight article here as the source. 11/12/2004 — Strange Metal Pieces from Plains of San Agustin Alleged UFO Crash Site Analyzed. The fact that they had some connections to George Adamski – who despite initial believable contact almost certainly appears to have manufactured and manipulated such events towards the end of his life – perhaps makes some researchers stay clear of the incident. Adam told me that the company under which he and Bessette have operated, Great Lakes Dive Company, would be moving and not be settled until some time in October 2006. What made the disappearance even more bizarre was that there were no distress signals or anything else to suggest there was any kind of problem with the aircraft. From there, it would seem, at least according to their own belief, they would be taken to another planet. The 1979 Elk River UFO Crash – The Grays Harbor Incident. At an isolated radar station, Air Defense operators were watching their scope in a routine guard against possible enemy attack.”. And why has their fate been concealed for over half a century? Also, Jimenez asserts that 212 feet from the jet is a mysterious object shaped a bit like a teardrop. You will search about a 1500-foot section of lake bed at a time and it takes a long time to “mow the lawn,” as they say, back and forth sweeping with sonar. The plane was followed by radar until it merged with an object 70 miles off Keweenaw Point in upper Michigan. Missing airplanes are one such category of mysteries. The jet would do likewise, engaging in a cat and mouse chase, assisted by the radar operator at the control tower. This one (unknown circular object) does not give a reading on the magnetometer. With full details, that official USAF script then showed how radar operators had picked up the blip of an unknown object over the Soo Locks near Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan. Perhaps in an effort to cover their tracks, they would submit no flight plan before leaving the airfield. ABOUT THE ISSUE OF THE F-89 NOT LOOKING LIKE IT HAD FALLEN FROM 7,000 FEET, IT REMINDS ME OF THE FAMOUS MANTELL CASE OVER KENTUCKY IN WHICH THEY FOUND THAT PLANE BROKEN UP WITH THOUSANDS OF LITTLE HOLES IN IT. Especially when there are other ways they can get attention. From those two things, the strike mark (on unknown object) and the hole in the F-89, I would speculate that the F-89 did collide with this object in some manner. And now, half a century later, recently released Sharc2 sidescan sonar and Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) images taken a year ago in August to September 2005, might help answer the question: What happened to the Kinross F-89 “swallowed up” on radar by a UFO? Marcus also regularly appears as an expert on radio talk shows including Troubled Minds and Unexplained Radio discussing these topics. Whenever you use a high-pressure wash system, it tends to stir up silt quite a bit. Search planes covered the overwater flight route of the missing plane yesterday,but were hampered by poor weather. IN THE ORIGINAL STORY THAT WAS RELEASED FROM THE AIR FORCE AND MEDIA AT THE TIME (IN 1953), THE AIR FORCE SAID THAT THERE WAS AN OBJECT IDENTIFIED AS A UFO TRAVELING OVER 500 MPH, THAT THE F-89 WAS RACING TOWARD OUT ACROSS WHITE FISH BAY. The witness claimed to have witnessed the radar screen as well as the radio communications, which were increasing infested with chaotic static the longer the incident progressed.

I call it a strike mark. They claimed to have heard “Moncla’s Cajun drawl” coming over the radio – several hours after the air force claimed contact was lost. The stories, accounts, and discussion in this article are not always based on proven facts and may go against currently accepted science and common beliefs. Amazing new photos have been released by The Great Lakes Dive Company concerning their discovery of the famous Kinross F-89 Scorpion jet fighter that disappeared over Lake Superior on November 23, 1953. As is standard procedure, their flight was monitored by US radar stations along the America-Canada border. Ten years later in 1960, when Major Keyhoe wrote Flying Saucers: Top Secret, he was frustrated by the ever-tightening censorship and outright lies that had become the strictly enforced policy of what Keyhoe called the “Silence Group.” Two year’s before that book’s release, he had been surprised in 1958 when the USAF at Lackland AFB, Texas, sent him a script for a closed-circuit radio broadcast at the base. Perhaps more than anything else, though, and a question that lies at the heart of many such UFO incidents, why was there, and still is, such an effort by, at least portions of the United States’ military and government to keep such a tight lid on these bizarre instances? Nine minutes ticked by. Was the pilot flying through the skies of Michigan? So, from what we can tell that’s exposed, it’s about a fifteen by eight feet section. Certainly. Almost immediately the UFO community swarmed over the apparent whistleblowers. The plane had been ordered to investigate an unknown object that was being tracked on radar.

Incidentally, the Royal Canadian Air Force would outright reject this statement from their American counterparts. The 23 November 1953 "Kinross Case," wherein a US Air Force F-89C jet fighter was scrambled from Kinross AFB Michigan on an "active air defense mission" to intercept an "unknown aircraft" and disappeared with two crew members aboard, is considered by â¦ As a “follower” of Adamski’s, Karl Hunrath would develop a device – the “Bosco” – with another follower that could summon down flying saucers. Might it be, then, that such information, misleading as it potentially is, was purposely uploaded by the powers that be in order to muddy the waters a little more. However, if there is, it is most likely in a way that most people don’t always consider. Moncla would then turn down the option to wait for another wingman and proceeded to intercept the “bogey” along (with Wilson reading the radar). Moncla would begin to descend, and with the F-89 approaching in excess of 500 miles per hour, the object would suddenly change course. It does not appear to be an indentation of any kind in the metal.

BUT IF IT DOES NOT HAVE IRON, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAVE A SIGNATURE IN A MAGNETOMETER? IF THIS ROUND OBJECT TURNS OUT TO FALL INTO THE CATEGORY OF A SILVER DISC AS WAS PHOTOGRAPHED SO MANY TIMES IN THE 1940S, 1950S, THE 1960S – WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE THE NEXT STEP AS FAR AS YOU BEING ABLE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT RETRIEVING IT? There does appear to be what we refer to as a ‘strike mark’ on the (unknown) object that does match the hole where the wing used to be on the F-89. It is, however, unclear if this wreckage was of the missing Beach 35 aircraft. OR WORKING WITH THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT? Plaque marking Moncla and the UFO incident. Eventually, the US Air Force would issue a statement claiming that “the pilot probably suffered from vertigo and crashed into the lake”. Exposed, right. The divers found the remains of a military plane missing since the 1950s, and were able to tell the pilots' families. We just don’t know. Might this be such an example? Certainly, that’s what we would do with the minesweepers once they are located. There is also the apparent railway crew who claimed to hear a crash on the night in question. So that leaves us several options to go over. We’d like to look a little bit further. Was this, as Heath asks, a sign that Moncla suspected there was a good chance he may not return from this latest scramble mission? 12/10/2004 — Part 3: “Peculiar Phenomena,” V-2 Rockets – and UFOB Retaliation? Yeah. At one point the radar images of the plane and the object appeared to merge and then they disappeared. Just What Did Happen To Tom Preziose?

In the control room at Kinross Air Force Base, radar operators and other on-duty personnel watched the screen as the blip representing the jet got closer and closer to the unidentified blip. (laughs) That’s a good question! So, one of the team members recalled that F-89s were equipped at one point with nuclear weapons. Or, if we accept there was a UFO over the America-Canada border – which the official records, remember, tell us there was – might this craft indeed have been otherworldly? Lt. Felix Moncla near his F-89 ... No trace of the plane was ever found. Major Keyhoe wrote five books, beginning in 1950 with The Flying Saucers Are Real – which was published only three years after the famous Roswell disc crash headlines that the government tried to turn into a weather balloon. To see all of the more than 2,600 Earthfiles in-depth reports, please visit the Archive, which is organized chronologically. When we began looking at the ‘mystery object,’ as we refer to it, we were trying to image the area in more detail to try to find parts of the F-89 that were not attached to the plane. Whether you're looking for a family member, squadron history, lost wabirds and crash sites, Accident-Reports.com offers a wide range of resources to help find the information you need.

A Contemporary Attempt At Control And Manipulation Of The Facts? (see original story â here) We were hampered by worsening weather in the middle of the lake. Perhaps one of the strangest details that Heath points out, and one that could be of quiet importance, is that before scrambling for his jet, Moncla purposely reached for his wallet and left it purposely behind. Once more, we have to ask if there is anything anyone could gain from setting and carrying on such a claim. We would take the unit back to the F-89. However, James Carrion, MUFON Director, has not been able to confirm that a company doing business as “Great Lakes Dive Company” has ever been registered with the State of Michigan. We began sweeping the area with out sonar array, which is an advanced system capable of searching a wide area. Firstly, is it possible that the Battle Creek witness is simply manufacturing the truth for their own entertainment? There’s a – I don’t know if you would call it a scratch per se. It doesn’t show up on a regular magnetometer scan, which does not necessarily mean anything except it’s not made out of iron. Marcus has been Editor-in-Chief for several years due to his excellent knowledge in these fields. Or might there be a little more to the Great Lakes Dive Company? Then, less than a month after the correspondence and claims of the company surfaced, the website vanished completely. Maybe they know something we don’t. What might the rail workers have heard if not the F-89 jet? On the Canadian side of the border, workers along the Algoma Central Railway would report to local newspapers of hearing an explosion on the night in question. There doesn’t appear to be a broken off piece of something. That something extraordinary took place appears quite obvious. It’s a possibility. Then, on the afternoon of the 11th November, the two men would rent a small plane at Gardina County Airport just outside of Los Angeles. They consider everything on the lake bottom, be it a shipwreck, plane or something else unknown, their property automatically. It’s capable of looking over a wide area. Right. There has been some speculation on the internet that it’s dented in the front. Anything to give us a clue that this was an F-89 and not perhaps some other airplane. If you can imagine a wing being ripped off from an airplane, it’s going to leave a very distinguished hole.

And were these missing pilots killed intentionally, captured, or did they indeed experience a fate unknown to us? The claims from Jimenez and the Great Lakes Dive Company was that this was the UFO that caused the apparent crash over the water of Lake Superior. Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) Videotape Image of Mystery Object. That it took place during an active scramble and intercept mission is also not disputed. However, if this was the case the wreckage should have been recovered quickly. It’s routine. For people who don’t know a lot about sonar equipment, most sonar equipment is very narrow.
