- HBCC UFO Research Note: Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edward's son
told me he fought tooth and nail one would say to have his father buried
with military honors. He contacted so many ranking officers and politicians
throughout the military/government in hopes of having his wishes carried
out, which over time they finally were granted and his Dad was put to
rest with military honors.
- One had to wonder why this wasn't carried out straight
away, with no hassles for the family who fought to have these rights in
place for their Father who served with courage and honor on and off the
battlefield. Was it due to a UFO experience which almost ruined Lt. Col.
Roy Jack Edwards career.
- In the military records I have here for Lt. Col. Roy
Jack Edwards, it states in bold capital letters that Lt. Col. Roy Jack
Edwards served his country "Honorable" But what there is no
mention of in these military records is an amazing UFO encounter Lt. Col.
Roy Jack Edwards had back in 1955 while holding a position of a test
pilot at Edwards AFB. I also will add, Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards almost
lost his life during his encounter with the UFO, loss of vision, everything
went fuzzy, so his body reacted to whatever the Unidentified Flying Object
was giving off and also losing control of the jet aircraft for a while
as it suddenly had mechanical problems, again due to the UFO he came face
to face while in flight.
- Now here is what I and Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edward's son
find really unusual and or the cover up starts, the powers to be whom
ever these people are, having Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards stationed in
Gifu, Japan at the time of his UFO encounter. This is listed on Lt. Col.
Roy Jack Edward's military records, according to his son who I spoke at
length with on Friday 25, 2008 by way of telephone, Jack Edward's son
says his Father was not stationed at Gifu, Japan, but rather at the Edwards
AFB where he was test flying the Super Sabre jet fighters at the time
of the UFO incident. His son can remember this so clearly, plus as his
son mentioned, we would have known if we were in Japan. (different country)
They weren't ! So this appears to be a complete cover-up by the military
to hide any possible leakage of Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edward's UFO sighting.
- The report on Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards UFO Experience.
- Full Description of event/sighting: Subject: My father,
a Super Sabre test pilot at Edwards AFB chased an Orange Cigar shaped
- In 1955 my deceased (3 years ago) father Lt. Col. Roy
Jack Edwards USMC (Ret. USNA Class of '47 - same as Pres. Jimmy Carter)
revealed an experience he had as a young test pilot to me just 2 years
before he died. He claimed the reason he never shared his UFO chase encounter
was the deep fear the military had threatened him, during debriefing upon
returning to base, for disobeying direct orders he would lose all his
military benefits along with a less than honorable discharge.
- Let me explain the whole set of circumstances involving
his chasing the stationary "Orange Cigar" shaped UFO at an altitude
of approx. 6K'. He was stationed at Edwards AFB for a 2 year stint to
conduct final testing of the new version Super Sabre fighters and other
experimentals. At this time I was only 6 years old.
- During a test flight in clear sky conditions when my
father initially contacted ground control he sighted a definite large
UFO. He was firmly "ordered" to "break away immediately
and return to base" with his chase (observation) plane. His observation
plane complied. However, my fearless USMC trained mindset father told
me that his raw intrepid instincts kicked in, thus, ignored ground control
because he knew he probably wouldn't ever get another opportunity to confront
a UFO and pursued.
- So, he made a linear flight towards this stationary positioned
cigar shaped orange glowing object and described w/o any surface area
indicative as having any source of propulsion which he estimated to be
about 2 football fields in length and slightly more than 50 yards in circumference.
As he reached a range of about 3-4 miles from the UFO it emitted a single
burst of blue light rendering my father to instantly lose his ability
to see and disabled his plane's communications equipment. Striped of his
sense of vision and communication to ground control he was in a very
precarious position to say the least. But he managed to bank his craft
to a soft right direction and kept his altitude from dropping by keeping
his stick from going forward. He said he considered bailing out but wanted
to ride out some time (knowing he had enough fuel) in hope the shock of
what ever incurred to him and his plane would be temporary.
- To his recall, his sight returned in slow blurry stages
until he regained full sight acuity in a time frame of about 10-15 minutes.
Now capable to see his instruments, horizon and most important recognizing
familiar terrain landmarks he tracked his return to Edwards' airfield
still w/o communications. Although my dad was relieved to have survived
this unique dangerous experience during his stern debriefing by his CO
for disobeying direct orders, he learned 2 unpleasant things. The reason
he was ordered to return to base ASAP, he was informed by his CO that
the same UFO had caused the deaths of 3 prior test pilots. Back in those
days the subject of UFO sightings or encounters were a silent taboo especially
among test pilots for fear of losing their hard earned test pilot flight
status. If my father had known of this critical information prior to
his UFO encounter, he claimed he wouldn't have pursued the UFO and would've
obeyed ground control orders.
- As a reprimand for disobeying direct orders he permanently
lost his status as a test pilot and reassigned to a USNA weapons department
teaching position at Annapolis, Md. Additionally, he wasn't allowed to
ever fly turbines (jets) in the future. Eventually, after a few years
at the pentagon in Wash. D.C. he petitioned and was permitted to fly choppers
- PS - I have my father's Military DD214 Discharge records
as verification reference. (HBCC UFO Research is in possession of the
documents as they were faxed to me on Friday, January 25, 2008).
- HBCC UFO Research Note: A Military cover-up, which seems
to be nothing new from all the servicemen I have spoken with. From being
threatened with loss of pensions, their lives, you name it. These are
the stories military personal relate to me. The story above which was
related to me by the son of Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards is another indication
what the military/government will go to, to suppress any information about
a UFO sightings brought out into the public domain.
- It may be folks like Lt. Col. Roy Jack Edwards and his
son, and others who are, or who have served in the military who have
knowledge of UFO events and can come forward to relate their experiences.
There has to be thousands of men and women who have served, or serving
in the military who have been told to keep silent over what they saw or
else. We will not know about these unusual events unless folks come forward.
