Bonnybridge/Falkirk Triangle and Roswell UFO Hotspots; and Recovered ‘Alien’ Prints

Article by Ron McKay                               July 5, 2020                              (heraldscotland.com)

• Scotland has its own ‘Area 51’ hotspot of UFO sightings known as the Falkirk Triangle, centered on Bonnybridge (in central Scotland between Edinburgh and Glasgow) where 300 sightings are reported annually. It began in 1992 when James Walker was driving between Falkirk and Bonnybridge and stopped when he spotted a shining, star-shaped object hovering over the road, blocking his path. Then the object just flew away at “an incredible speed”.

• Other residents of the Falkirk Triangle have reported a “howling” UFO that buzzed their car; a cigar-shaped craft seen landing on a local golf course; being abducted and taken aboard an alien craft for examination, and then having their mind wiped. Local politician Billy Buchanan has demanded inquiries with three letters to the Prime Minister. “How do we know aliens aren’t walking about?” Buchanan said in 2005.

• In July of 1947, Dan Wilmot and his wife were sitting on their porch near Roswell, New Mexico just before 10pm when they witnessed “a large glowing object (that) zoomed out of the sky”, hovering, and then vanished at high speed. The Roswell Daily Record newspaper famously quoted an Air Force intelligence officer that a ‘flying saucer’ had been recovered on a nearby ranch. The term ‘flying saucer’ has been coined just days before by an amateur pilot named Kenneth Arnold who watched a formation of UFOs fly past Mount Rainier in Washington State.

• The military quickly reversed their assessment, calling it a downed weather balloon. But the Roswell incident resurfaced in 1978 when a former Air Force intelligence officer, Jesse A Marcel, mentioned seeing the crash and the alien occupants to a ham radio correspondent, who told UFO researcher Stanton Friedman. In 1947, Marcel was in charge of security for the atomic weapons research program both at the Roswell Army Air Base and in the Pacific where they planned to detonate atomic bombs.

• Major Marcel’s son, Jesse Junior, then 11, later claimed that he handled pieces of alien material. It was also later reported that a nurse at the base said she had been present at autopsies of three creatures which had been recovered from the crash debris. The nurse was never identified and was said to have died in a plane crash. In July 1997, days before the 50th anniversary of the Roswell crash, the US Air Force released a 231-page report – The Roswell Report: Case Closed – which stated that there was no UFO crash, and the recovered bodies were crash test dummies.

• In 2012, Joseph Beason inherited a series of color slides from his sister who, 14 years earlier, had been hired to dispose of the belongings of an old woman and she couldn’t bring herself to throw away the undeveloped Kodachrome film. Years passed until she got round to looking at them. They appeared to be post-war pictures of General Dwight Eisenhower on a victory train tour, accompanied by Clark Gable and Bing Crosby. There were also contemporary shots taken in European capitals. But two of the slides were wrapped in parchment. It appeared to be a small, brown creature with withered arms, shriveled legs and a large, triangular skull with gaping eye sockets lying in a glass case. (see featured image above) She was sure it was a dead space alien.

• Beason and his videographer friend, Adam Dew, found that the slides had belonged to a women named Hilda Blair Ray in Arizona. An analysis by Kodak confirmed the prints had not been tampered with and dated them to between 1945 and 1950, the time frame of the Roswell incident. The news started to leak out, and in May 2015, 7,000 people paid up to $86 to attend ‘BeWitness’, a four-hour show in Mexico City’s grandest theater where, after innumerable speakers and ufologists, the slides were projected onto huge screens.

• Soon afterward, an online enthusiast screennamed Neb Lator, examined the high-resolution image using an internet software program called Smart DeBlur Pro and managed to decipher an indistinct placard below the glass case holding the “alien”. It read, “Mummified body of two year old boy… At the time of burial the body was clothed in a (unreadable) cotton shirt. Burial wrappings consisted of these small cotton blankets. Loaned by Mr (unreadable) San Francisco, California.”

• The mummy, claimed to be that of a Native American child, was previously on display at the Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum in Mesa Verde, Colorado. It had been discovered in a series of cave dwellings cut into Arizona cliffs in 1896 and later donated to the museum. Had it been an elaborate scam to make a quick buck? The two men own up to a grand mistake on their part but deny any fraud.

[Editor’s Note]   Does this look like a mummified, 2-year old human child to you? Just because it was found in 1896 and was in an Arizona museum doesn’t mean it can’t be an alien body. Get Dr. Steven Greer and Emery Smith on it. They’re experts in small, mummified alien beings.

 

                     The Falkirk Triangle

Dan Wilmot and his wife were sitting on their porch reflecting on the day. It was a few minutes before 10 in the evening, the brutal sun had given way to a balmy evening and the New Mexico sky was clear when, in their words, “a large glowing object zoomed out of the sky”, hovered, and then disappeared from view at high speed.

                Dan Wilmot and wife

They both ran to their garden fence to try to follow its path before it vanished.

Six days later the local daily newspaper reported – quoting the intelligence officer from the local air force base – that a flying saucer, which had crashed into scrub at Foster’s Ranch, had been recovered.

   Major Jesse A Marcel

That report, in the Roswell Daily Record on this day in 1947, set off either one of the world’s greatest conspiracy theories – or a monumental and successful cover-up which makes the JFK affair look like child’s play.

The story was quickly denied. It was said to be an experimental weather balloon. And there it may well died had not that intelligence officer, Jesse A Marcel, allegedly bound for decades by official secrets, subsequently mentioned it to a ham radio correspondent who, in 1978, told Stanton Friedman, a UFO researcher. The aliens were out of the closet, or coffin.

                       Billy Buchanan

The Roswell air base in 1947 was the centre of the United States’ atomic weapons research programme. Marcel was in charge of security, not just there but in the Pacific where tests were planned to take place. His son, Jesse Jnr, then 11, later claimed that he handled pieces of the craft. Even later it was reported that a nurse at the base said she had been present at autopsies of three creatures which had been recovered from the debris. Both Marcels are dead (but you can see their accounts on YouTube), the nurse was never identified and, as in most of these mysteries, she is said to have conveniently died in a plane crash.

In July 1997, just days before the 50th anniversary of the crash when spectators would flock to Roswell, the US Air Force released a 231-page report – The Roswell Report: Case Closed – which rubbished the theories and explained that the three aliens were crash test dummies. Closure? It was merely proof for ufologists that the state secrecy about what really happened in what was known as Area 51 was being reinforced.

NY Filmmaker Documents UFO ‘Cover-Ups’

Article by Steve Israel                              May 11, 2020                                (recordonline.com)

• In spite of watching three mysterious lights coming towards him and then disappearing behind the Moon when he was a ten-year old in the Bronx, and then seeing a 300-foot rectangular-shaped object in the daytime sky over Montgomery ten years ago, filmmaker and playwright Michael Corriere, 72, (pictured above) of Montgomery, NY, (a northern suburb of New York City) has always been more a skeptic when it comes to UFOs and extraterrestrial beings.

• Then the retired New York City police officer “started looking into” three UFO incidents that all occurred in 1947, including Roswell, the Puget Sound incident, and the Mt Rainier ‘saucers’. On May 13th, Corriere premier for his new film, “Alien Connection…the Final Proof…the Final X-File,” online as part of the New Filmmakers New York Festival, where he dramatizes these UFO incidents and makes the case that the US government has actively covered them up from the public.

• On June 21 1947, two men who were on harbor patrol in the Puget Sound in Washington State saw six doughnut shaped objects in the sky, one of them dumping slag fragments into the water, with some of them landing in their boat. (e.g.: ‘The Maury Island Incident’) Two Army Air Corps officers were dispatched from California to investigate the UFO fragments. Their B-25 bomber crashed due to “engine failure”, killing the officers. The engines were brand new, and the ID numbers on a photo of the crashed plane were different than the numbers in the official crash report.

• “There was so much evidence found,” says Corriere. “But all the reports from local police departments disappeared.” Corriere suspects one of the biggest cover-ups in history going all the way up to the President, Harry Truman. Corriere has asked the United Nations Human Rights Commission to investigate the Puget Sound “crash,” and has also written President Trump about it.

• On June 24, 1947, a private pilot also in Washington reported seeing nine saucer-shaped UFOs as he flew past Mount Rainier. (e.g., ‘The Kenneth Arnold UFO incident’)

• Finally, on July 8, 1947, the front-page headline of the Roswell, NM Daily Record newspaper blared: “Roswell Army Air Force Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch.″ The government immediately changed its story saying that it was a high altitude weather balloon. Then they said it was a high altitude nuclear blast detector. According to an email that Corriere received from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, their records show that President Truman visited the AF base “sometime in September, 1947.” This is where the ‘alien bodies’ from Roswell were allegedly kept, says Corriere.

 

UFOs seemed like they were everywhere in the summer of 1947.

“Roswell Army Air Force Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch…″ blared a front-page headline of the Roswell (New Mexico) Daily Record newspaper in June.

The same month, two men who said they were on harbor patrol in the Puget Sound in Washington State claimed they not only saw six doughnut shaped objects in the sky, they said fragments of them landed on their boat.

In July, a private pilot also in Washington reported seeing nine saucer-shaped UFOs as he flew past Mount Rainier.

It was against this backdrop that two Army Air Corps officers, Capt. William Davidson and Lt. Frank Brown, were sent to Washington to investigate and, reports say, collect the so-called UFO fragments.

They never made it back to their California base. Their B-25 bomber crashed, killing the officers.

Was it engine failure, as the official reports claimed, or was it something else, like sabotage?

Montgomery’s Michael Corriere, a filmmaker, playwright, retired New York City police officer and part-time SUNY Orange security guard, doesn’t buy the official explanation of engine failure.

Not only does he say that the engines were unlikely to fail because they’d just been installed, the ID numbers on a photo of the crashed plane were different than the numbers in the official reports of the crash.

That incident is just one aspect of what Corriere, 72, claims could be one of the biggest coverups in UFO history – a “major coverup″ that, he says, reached all the way to President Harry Truman. Corriere has even asked the United Nations Human Rights Commission to investigate the “crash,” along with writing President Trump about it.

“There was so much evidence found,” Corriere says. “But all the reports from local police departments disappeared.”

143 UFO Sightings in North Carolina So Far in 2019

Listen to “E190 143 UFO Sightings in North Carolina So Far in 2019” on Spreaker.

Article by Kimberly Johnson                            December 4, 2019                             (patch.com)

• UFOs have been seen in the US since at least the mid-20th century when Kenneth Arnold, piloting a small plane, saw nine high-speed, crescent-shaped objects zooming along at several thousand miles per hour “like saucers skipping on water.” Although the objects weren’t saucer-shaped at all, his analogy led to the popularization of the term “flying saucers.” Ever since, the idea that aliens are circling the planet in strange-looking spacecraft has fascinated us.

• The National UFO Reporting Center’s website receives thousands of UFO reports annually. Here is one account from Gallipolis, Ohio: “A husband (former law enforcement) and wife (scientist), while sitting outside their recreational vehicle at a public campsite, witness a very bright light approach their campsite from the south in an erratic manner, appearing to slow or stop on several occasions as it drew near. It got within 50 yards, they estimate, of their campsite, at which time, out of a sense of alarm, the husband reached for his .45 caliber sidearm, but he felt unable to use his arm, or lift the firearm. The object, estimated by the witnesses to have been approximately 20 feet in diameter, hovered nearby for approximately 8 seconds, and then suddenly accelerated toward the west, and disappeared very quickly to the west.”

• At least 143 reports have been filed in North Carolina so far in 2019. For instance, On October 9, 2019 in Mooresville, North Carolina: “I was taking my dog out and I just by chance happened to see a bright flash in the sky. I looked up to see what I can only describe a ‘scrambler’ ride from the fair spinning in circle like a top and every time it spun around the arm had some “meteor blue” lights on each arm that swung around.. It didn’t have a repeating movement it was very erratic, but it just moved slowly right across the sky.”

• On October 12, 2019 in Huntersville, North Carolina: “I was driving on Saturday night… (when) I spotted several Orange pulsating orbs moving in straight line across the sky. These where not Chinese lanterns, flares, or airplanes. I could see directly into the orbs and they appeared to be generating some type of energy pulse. These objects where completely silent. They also appear out of nowhere and quickly disappeared once they passed by my direct view. The sighting lasted about 5 minutes one after another.”

• On November 25, 2019 in Wilksboro, North Carolina, a witness reported a “Circle looking silver object was hovering in the sky. … I thought I was crazy and even sprayed my windshield and wipers but it was still there. Weather was great and no clouds absolutely no way it was aircraft because it was there then it was gone so fast and not moving in the sky.”

• The idea of intergalactic UFOs got a boost when it was revealed that in 2007, Democratic Senator Harry Reid from Nevada, home of Area 51, funded a $22 million, multi-year Pentagon program to study UFOs.

• Then, in 2017, it was revealed that retired Navy Commander and pilot David Fravor had seen an oblong craft flying erratically through his airspace at incredible speed off of the coast of California in 2004, maneuvering in a way that defies accepted principles of aerodynamics. Fravor described the wingless object as about 40 feet long, shaped like a ‘Tic Tac’, and “other worldly”. When Fravor’s radar jammed and he flew closer, the craft zoomed upward and disappeared.

[Editor’s Note]   Speaking of UFOs over North Carolina, an Updated Exoarticle from October 21st exclusively reported that the “fleet” of lights which a tourist on the Outer Banks described as coming “from the Atlantic Ocean” was actually coming from the direction of Camp Lejune Marine Corp base and Jacksonville, NC to the southwest, and not from the ocean, due east. See Exoarticle here.

 

NORTH CAROLINA — The idea that we’re not alone and aliens from another galaxy are circling the planet in strange-looking spacecraft has long fascinated us. Thousands of reports of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, are filed every year. In North Carolina, at least 143 reports have been filed in 2019.

The National UFO Reporting Center’s website is filled with accounts like this one, from Gallipolis, Ohio:
“A husband (former law enforcement) and wife (scientist), while sitting outside their recreational vehicle at a public campsite, witness a very bright light approach their campsite from the south in an erratic manner, appearing to slow or stop on several occasions as it drew near. It got within 50 yards, they estimate, of their campsite, at which time, out of a sense of alarm, the husband reached for his .45 caliber sidearm, but he felt unable to use his arm, or lift the firearm. The object, estimated by the witnesses to have been approximately 20 feet in diameter, hovered nearby for approximately 8 seconds, and then suddenly accelerated toward the west, and disappeared very quickly to the west.”

Intrigued? Don’t be jealous of those folks in Ohio. Here’s some of what’s been reported in North Carolina:
• On Oct. 9, a Mooresville resident reported seeing an object moving north to south in the sky, saying: “I was taking my dog out and I just by chance happened to see a bright flash in the sky. I looked up to see what I can only describe a ‘scrambler’ ride from the fair spinning in circle like a top and every time it spun around the arm had some “meteor blue” lights on each arm that swung around.. It didn’t have a repeating movement it was very irractic, but it just moved slowly right across the sky.”

• Three days later, fireball shaped orange pulsating orbs were spotted in Huntersville. “I was driving on Saturday night 10/12/19 at 9:30pm in Huntersville North Carolina. I spotted several Orange pulsating orbs moving in straight line across the sky. These where not Chinese lanterns, Flares, or Airplanes.. I could see directly into the orbs and they appeared to be generating some type of energy pulse. These objects where completely silent. They also appear out of nowhere and quickly disappeared once they passed by my direct view. The sighting lasted about 5 minutes one after another,” the report said.

• Nov. 25, an unidentified object was reportedly spotted in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. “Circle looking silver object was hovering in the sky as I was driving past chick fil a towards Boone on 421 I thought I was crazy and even sprayed my windshield and wipers but it was still there. Weather was great and no clouds absolutely no way it was aircraft because it was there then it was gone so fast and not moving in the sky,” the report said.
