Another US Air Force Officer tells of missile shut-down by UFOs – Told by superiors ‘…never to speak about the incident.’


For Immediate Release

Toronto,Canada [ZNN] More evidence has come to light concerning how levels of secrecy imposed by the United States Air Force on their own officers has served to restrict the public’s access to information about unauthorized incursions into restricted airspace and the unauthorized shut-down of nuclear missiles by craft of unknown origin.

Documentation and testimony by senior officials and military officers continue to come forward that describe an intriguing chronicle of repression, government control and secrecy.

The ZlandCommunications NewsNetwork has learned that yet another ICBM Deputy Launch Commander has come forward to describe not only his recollections about the unauthorized shut-down of nuclear missiles at an American nuclear installation but that he was told never to speak of the incident.

Based on this incident and others like it: Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there may be an unacknowledged but orchestrated form of behaviour that taints the entire super-structure of the US government, its military and intelligence agencies – not only to deny the public its right to the truth but obliterating their access to it?

The evidence appears overwhelming in favour of this hypothesis.

Not only are airspace violations by unidentified aerial phenomenon over US nuclear weapons installation sites widespread, but ranking US Air Force officers are being told by their superiors never to discuss these matters.


These officers – despite threats and intimidation – are now coming forward despite this apparent super-structure of secrecy. This time, Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota is the centre of the controversy. Minot has a history of incidents involving UFO’s. (See also Minot B-52)

The missile shut-downs in this incident and those at other nuclear facilities coincide with the reported presence of craft of unknown origin as described by multiple USAF officers who were manning nuclear weapons installations in the mid-westUnited States during the mid 1960’s.

In yet another chapter of this narrative, retired USAF Captain David D. Schindele, as a First Lieutenant and Deputy Missile Combat Crew Commander in the 742nd Squadron of the 455th Strategic Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota has come forward to describe not only how he was told at a briefing that the previous night’s missile crew had experienced some unusual circumstances where some missiles came “off alert”, but that he was also directed never to speak of the matter.

In an article by researcher Robert Hastings, Hastings cites a front page news story in the Minot Daily News in December 1966 that covered flying saucers over Minot AFB. In the same article Hastings also outlines former Captain Schindele’s corroborating testimony.

The now retired Captain David D. Schindele said, “I remember that when we were relieved the next morning and arrived topside, I attempted to query the Flight Security Controller, who told me he could not speak about the incident. It was then that my commander also informed me that he had received word, during my rest break below, that we were to never speak about the incident.”

This curious pattern of incursions by craft of unknown origin, the coinciding shut-down of nuclear missiles and clamps on staff observations is now coalescing. It now reads like a military litany of events the US Air Force will be hard pressed to explain when forced to do so by media pressure and public curiosity.

Airspace violations in 1954 at Maxwell AFB in Alabama, Malmstrom AFB Montana 1967, Wurtsmith Air Force Base Michigan in 1975, Walker AFB New Mexico and Warren AFB in Wyoming are well documented. These are just some of the incursions researchers have uncovered – how many more are there that the Pentagon knows about but are yet to be unearthed?


It is true that these strange incidents are difficult to comprehend. However, the military secrecy and the mysterious culture of political silence surrounding these and other similar incidents are even more perplexing.

The less-exposed and broader pattern of military secrecy and obfuscation seem to provide what many might describe as a systemically unacknowledged backdrop of a wider conspiratorial context. The US government’s total silence on this matter is a testament to this assessment.

All the evidence seems to point in this direction.

If, as the United States Air Force maintains – UFOs are not a threat to national security, then why are USAF officers who report such a phenomenon told to keep quiet? Moreover, from where do these directives and policies emanate? What culture of concealment – fuelled by an addiction to secrecy – radiates such a well-orchestrated form of mendacity?

Two instructive events might illustrate the depth of what can only be described as a subtle form of institutional deceit.

In communication with the USAF and in response to questions about compromised nuclear missiles, ZNN was told by Vicky Stein of the US Air Force Public Affairs Office there is no comment on this matter beyond the US Air Force FACT SHEET on its web site; a flimsy if not inept response to very serious and substantive allegations about compromised nuclear weapons by craft of unknown origin – clearly an egregious and straightforward matter of national security.

In another conversation – NORAD Media Relations Naval officer Lt. Desmond James indicated to ZNN that they were aware of the 2010 Washington press conference at which USAF officers described multiple incursions by UFOs over US nuclear facilities; however because this was an ‘American asset issue’, he pointed ZlandCommunications to the same United States Air Force web site http://www.af.mil/ to obtain the insipidly generic statement about UFOs on its Fact Sheet.

In the context of these kinds of dead-pan responses by expressionless Air Force officials, it is little wonder why those who research the secrecy behind the UFO matter come to conclude that an orchestrated form of behaviour contaminates the entire super-structure of the US government and its military and intelligence agencies. The result – the public remains ignorant of the facts.

This recurring theme of imposed secrecy molds almost seamlessly with the now public and disturbing testimony of former Division Chief of the Accidents and Investigations Branch of the FAA in Washington DC, John Callahan. Callahan speaks of a meeting held with President Ronald Reagan’s scientific study team that included the FBI and the CIA on November 17 1986 to discuss the Japan Air Lines flight 1628 UFO incident captured on radar. Tapes and radar records were reviewed.

Callahan, a senior FAA official, was then categorically instructed that the incident never occurred and this meeting never happened.

To more clearly accentuate the insidious nature of  US secrecy surrounding UFOs, the respected astronaut and US Air Force pilot Gordon Cooper stated during an interview, “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.”

Cooper’s remarks demonstrate that questions continue to swirl around how the US government’s complete lack of transparency, threats of intimidation towards its own military personnel and a 65 year-old silence on the UFO matter has affected the constitutional right of citizens to know about this crucial issue.

Not only does this impact upon the lives of Americans but the nature of our planet’s history.


Will the incessant silence in this matter continue to be tolerated by the press, elected officials and concerned citizens?

What group, agency, elected official or media publisher is courageous enough to take on this monolith of government and military secrecy?

Three things have to happen:

1. The US government must be pressed to come forward and openly inaugurate public discourse about all evidence in this matter; examine the testimony of its own military officials and; ultimately admit they have been wittingly or unwittingly part of an extended generation of liars.

2. Amnesty must be offered to all and every individual within the military and intelligence community who may wish to come forward about their experiences or their part in the cover-up.

3. The North American mainstream media must set aside their indolent corporate conscience and get to work on exposing every aspect of the UFO cover-up.

Former USAF officers like Captain Schindele, Captain Robert Salas, Lt. Colonel Dwynne C. Arneson and many others who faithfully served America deserve to be heard.

If and when this scourge of secrecy ever ends, and the truth about the reality of UFOs and an ET presence does emerge – the history of an entire planet will have to be re-written.

ZNN will continue to follow these events.
