- UFO sightings continue at a high rate with numerous reports
of UFOs in Eastern US not far from fatal Flight 990 crash. Near misses
and safety concerns turn these sightings into an important, but grim situation.
The Dateline USA television show poll found that more than 70 percent
of those surveyed believe there is intelligent life in the universe, perhaps
even in our Milky Way Galaxy.
- TRIANGULAR UFOs SPOTTED ON
HALLOWEEN NEAR FLIGHT 990
- NANTUCKET - The Shadie Pines News states, "An EgyptAir
plane with 214 people on board crashed at sea early Sunday off the island
of Nantucket, Massachusetts, en route from New York to Cairo, Egypt. Bodies
and debris were found in the water. Several pleasure boaters off the coast
of Nantucket report seeing at least two large and silent triangular craft
in the vicinity before reports of the loss of Flight 990 from radar. "The
huge objects passed over us at an unbelievable speed," stated one
observer. "There appeared to be a glowing light at each corner of
the object, and stars and clouds behind it disappeared. That's how we knew
it wasn't just an airplane, but something else." "We thought
it was just a jet or something from JFK, but we had never seen anything
like this." reported a group on a pleasure cruise on their sailboat.
'There were at least two of them, and they were totally silent and passed
over us very quickly from east to west.' Thanks to Shadie Pines News 11/2/99

- Editor's Notes: Cruising is normally the safest part
of flying, but it appears for some unknown reason the EgyptAir 767 -cruising
at 33,000 feet- disengaged the autopilot. Then eight seconds later the
aircraft inexplicably went into a controlled steep dive down to 19,000
feet. It's very odd that the flight crew did not issue a distress call
when leaving altitude in controlled air space. This infers that some kind
of terrorist action or emergency situation was to blame. Major mechanical
failure or a pressurization problem would have shown up on the flight data
- While I flew for the Air Force, problems at altitude
were relatively rare. Once, while over the Atlantic Ocean, a raft suddenly
escaped from an outside door and wrapped itself around the tail. We almost
bailed out, but were able to land safely.
- On December 19, 1996, a Chinese Commercial airliner had
a collision with a UFO according to Reuters World Service. (Filer's Files
#1-97and #39-97) We can speculate that Flight 990 attempted to avoid a
midair collision and chose to dive to avoid a collision. The airliner's
rate of descent was unusually fast and steep, some 14,000 feet in 36 seconds
before transponder signals were lost. A recovery from this sudden dive
may not have been possible because of the high speed and steep angle of
descent causing structural failure. The loss of electrical power may have
been due to the loss of the jet engine's and electrical generators as they
attempted a maximum pull out of the steep dive at high speed. Unless the
crew was incapacitated in some way it still seems that someone in the cockpit
would have had time to alert air traffic control of their emergency.
Although numerous government agencies prefer to ridicule Ufologists with
negative statements, its time they considered the possibility of an airborne
collision or near miss.
- Commercial Airline Pilot Bob Durant's excellent investigation
of Swissair 747 Flight 127 'near miss' over Long Island on August 9, 1997,
is a case in point. The case was carried in the September 1999, issue
of the MUFON Journal. Later in these files there is a report of another
'near miss' over London on October 22 of this year.
- FLORIDA PILOT AMAZING DAYLIGHT SIGHTING
- OCALA - A corporate pilot for a Georgia aeronautical
engineering firm witnessed a UFO on October 30, 1999, at about 11:42 AM.
He was piloting a Piper PA-34-200T at 7,000 feet enroute to south Florida.
About 24 miles NW of Ocala, his ground speed read out was 140 knots,
winds aloft 054 degrees at 40 knots. He observed an unknown aircraft
at the 2 o'clock position about a finger width at arm's length above the
horizon appearing to be on a collision course 3 to 4 miles away. He
called Jacksonville ARTCC. Jacksonville replied they did not have the target
on their screen. He viewed the craft with Bushnell 10X25 binoculars and
then turned the binoculars over to his passenger an aeronautical engineer
and corporate CEO. Both stated they were puzzled with the craft's appearance.
They seemed to be out distancing this craft even though the course continued
to converge. It was finally last observed about two miles aft of the right
wing tip. At this point he had to contend with an on going airshow in
Ocala, and tried to request clearance to turn around for a closer look.
He later phoned flight line duty authorities in Ocala who indicated nothing
like that craft was reported or flew over Ocala.
- The craft had a Space shuttle like shape, but smaller
and shorter, dolphin like nose (minus beak-mouth), no cockpit windshield
or windows or doors apparent. The top of fuselage appeared flat, small
vertical stabilizer, with tapered toward aft end into vertical stabilizer.
The fuselage aft had bulbous like blisters below fins like on the shuttle
but not as prominent. It had small deltoid wings on bottom appearing to
be too small. There were no propellers or other external auxiliary appurtenances
or jet like exhaust visible. It was a dull flat medium dark gray metallic
color. It was 75 feet long, with about a 50 foot wing span in straight
level flight with no maneuvering. Its estimated ground speed was 120 knots.
Appearance suggested a somewhat lifting body type, but not all lifting
body, not all airplane, a mixture. This witness/pilot indicated he had
13,000 hours in the air, held a transport pilot license and FAA Pilot
Instructor credentials. He has numerous other aviation certifications and
credentials. His passenger was an aeronautical engineer. Both were unfamiliar
with this aircraft. This witness agreed to meet with a Field Investigator
to further pursue the identity of the aircraft described above. This
case has been turned over to MUFONGA's Earle Blanton Jr. for further investigation.
Initial speculation between Blanton and Sheets is that this is some form
of test aircraft or drone. Thanks to: Tom Sheets- SD Thanks to Tom Sheets,

- DAYTONA BEACH - NUFORC reports that on October 22, 1999,
a witness was driving west on Interstate 4 when he and his passenger saw
a flying metallic object. It kept changing shapes at 2:10 PM. I thought
at first was a cloud. Then I noticed a football shaped object in a metallic
color catching the sun shining on it. It moved forward and stopped and
then stood itself on end and changed into a spear shape. It flew off quickly
changing to a pin head and disappeared. Thanks to Peter Davenport, NUFORC
- TEXAS TRIANGLE SEEN BY TWO AIRLINE CREWS
- Peter Davenport reports that on October 26, 1999, the
crews of two major airlines saw an anomalous object in their vicinity at
37,000 feet. Two pilots, together with the FAA air traffic controller
that communicated with them have been interviewed. The witnesses report
the object was a very large triangular shaped craft with extremely bright
lights. It executed a turn to the east, moved ahead of the aircraft,
and faded from the crews' sight. Davenport has obtained the ATC audio tape
that was made in the tower using the FOIA. One pilot is a former F-16
pilot for the USAF and the other a former A-10 Warthog pilot. Both have
indicated they will hold nothing back. Further someone in the tower thought
the situation was so bizarre, that they turned on a tape recorder of the
incident. NUFORC was later notified. A job well done for some unidentified
FAA hero. Thanks to Tom Sheets and Peter Davenport National Reporting
- TEXAS BOOMERANG OVER FORT WORTH - World Wide UFO Reporting
Center reports that on November 5, 1999, a boomerang was sighted at 2:37
PM as the witness came out of an elevator. On each floor where the elevator
doors open, there is a large window giving me an excellent west view.
Today at 2:37 PM I glanced out this window on the 37th floor of the Burnett
Plaza building in downtown Fort Worth. I spotted a perfect boomerang shaped
object traveling at a high speed. It had narrow what looked like wings
angled back sharply with no visible body seen. This object was approximate
the size of a dime held at arm's length and appeared to be a dark gray
in color. The sky was partly cloudy with vivid blue sky showing between
the sparse cloud cover. I spotted this object moving from behind one cloud
and again hidden by another cloud. It was visible for only about two seconds
due to its rapid speed. I was able to clearly see the shape of this object
as it contrasted against the deep blue sky. The UFO was three times the
size of a commercial jumbo jet flying just above the clouds. Sky conditions
during observation period were: Winds South at 14 mpg with no gusts, Cloud
Ceiling 500 ft., Temperature 64, Dewpoint 60, Relative Humidity 87%, Visibility
9 miles, and some haze present. Thanks to Morgan Clements WWUFORCenter

- WARETOWN - Don writes, I am a regular follower of the
"Filer's Files." I live in a small bay side community in Ocean
County. It is a very small town, about 5,000 residents, so you can probably
imagine how shocked I was to read about Jeanne, in your Filer's Files #44
last week. There is a local group called the Concerned Taxpayers of Waretown,
that puts out a newsletter about once a month called The Bayside News and
I was wondering if we could include this account? Also, there seems to
be many cases like this in our area. I read about one in the next town
south, Barnegat in your report about a year ago. A UFO lecturer did a
presentation in the library about five years ago and he had drawings of
the grays, that were seen in Toms River, twelve miles to our north. Bud
Hopkins also wrote about an abduction in Berkeley Township, nine miles
from here. I would also like to alert you to something, but I cannot have
my name connected with it since I am fairly well known in this area and
the topic of UFO's can cause big trouble in this rural area. There is something
very strange going on with the street lights around here. They seem to
go on and off all the time, especially during the last 30 days. I am wondering
if Jeanne or anyone else has seen this? Also, Jeanne is not the only one
who hears the high pitched sounds in her ears, and she is not the only
one with weird dreams, like say a fleet of strange crafts flying over the
bay an incredible speeds. Also, have you ever heard of someone walking
up in the morning with their eye lid cut in half from top to bottom with
very little blood and no idea how it happened, but no damage at all to
the pupil? If I can ever be of assistance to you please. I really admire
your work and respect you! Thanks to Don @bellatlantic.net.
- CLIFTON - Henri Calitri reports my mother said she saw
two bright objects moving slowly on November 1, 1999, at 6:00 PM. She saw
them above Route 46 in Clifton about 10 miles west of New York City. An
airplane was moving fast underneath the two unidentified objects going
in the opposite direction. She said they were very bright, like stars.
She was more interested in the plane that flew underneath these lights
because it showed a fire behind it. There was no smoke, which she thought
was also unusual. It is also interesting to note that we both felt as
if our bodies were particularly sore, the morning after she had this sighting.
Thanks to Henri email@example.com.
- PRINCETON - On November 7, 1999, a witness observed five
objects flying north at 9:40 PM. Their flight pattern was different than
a normal flying object such as a plane or helicopter, which was what raised
a flag in my mind. What made me look closer at these objects originally
was that the two objects seemed to be "too close" to each other
flying at roughly the same altitude. I continued to watch and the object
on my right seemed to "catch up" to the one on the left. I noticed
two more sets of lights that looked just like the first. The second set
followed the first set off to the North. Another set of lights followed.
I remember thinking how many of these things were there? And why don't
I hear anything? I'm not used to seeing five strange objects in the sky.
All I saw were white lights, one on top and two on either side slightly
lower like a little pyramid. They seemed to blink but not on purpose.
It looked like the motion was causing the lights to fluctuate. Thanks

- NEW YORK CITY UFO SIGHTINGS
- MANHATTAN - I have been seeing some UFOs over Brooklyn
and Manhattan. I saw an unidentified craft on November 5, 1999, that emitted
a 'white' strobe light. The others had colored lights, but no blinking
ones. I was driving west on Canal Street in Manhattan when a pair, or
so, of lights zoomed by fast below the tops of the buildings heights.
'Instantly, another pair zoomed by fast. Then a 'moment' later, a strobe
light went by, fast. All one after the other. There were seemingly three
UFOs. They were very close, but the shapes were not visible at all. There
was another UFO, on Thursday evening, November 4th, flying low and slow
heading north right over the center of Manhattan. There were three white
lights, almost linear.. but in a slight 'V' shape. These were not any
craft that I am familiar with. I have seen the strobe light a few times.
The two? crafts with two? lights are new, The craft with three white-light
is 'certainly' new. Can you identify any of these for me. Thanks to:

- NORFOLK - An entry to our Website www.filersfiles.com
dated November 7, 1999, was from Pam Grant. She wrote: "I am not
exactly sure of the correct date, but I believe it was October 26, 1999,
I went outside around 10:00 PM to feed the stray cat and looked up into
the clear sky. I saw a bright white light traveling east. It was larger
and brighter than a star and was perhaps at an elevation of 60,000 ft.
I ran to the house to grab my binoculars. As I was spotting its position
and just before I could raise the binoculars the object took off at a high
speed resembling a shooting star as it disappeared out to the eastern sky,
its light fading with its incredible speed. If I had not caught the slower
movement prior to its take off, I would have thought it to be a shooting
star. Thanks to Pam Grant email@example.com.
- GEORGIA BIRGHT ORANGE OBJECT
- FORT MOUNTAIN - The reports of UFO activity on Fort Mountain
continue. MUFON's Tom Sheets received information from a Fort Mountain
businessman Drew K. that on October 16, 1999, Drew who has a panoramic
view of the valley observed a bright orange round object hovering over
the valley at 10:30 PM. He estimated about a mile away. He added that
it gently floated a little to the east (left to right) as he watched it
go from being about the size of a basketball held at arm's length to that
of a baseball, and then back to basketball size. He added that it was
calm and clear that night, and the event lasted about 5 seconds. The object,
which was about moon bright, then vanished.
- UNITED KINGDOM NEAR MISS WITH UFO
- RIDDLE OF UFO AT HEATHROW LONDON - Daily Mail (UK) October
26, 1999 reports that a passenger jet's close encounter with a mysterious,
fast moving craft seconds after taking off from Heathrow (London) had experts
baffled yesterday. The crew of an MD-81 reported an object 'like a bright
light' passing within 20 feet of them at 3,500 feet. Air accident investigators
were unable to shed any light (pun?) on the mystery as radar records show
there were no other planes in the area at the time. A dossier on last
month's incident is thought to have been passed to the MoD (Ministry of
Defence) to see if the UFO could have been a radar-invisible foreign spy
plane or stray British test craft. Connection http://www.contrailconnection.com
- SCUNTHORPE - Chris Evers reports, I have been contacted
by an ex RAF type living in Scunthorpe, who an experience on November 1,
1999. He was in his back garden when he witnessed a very unusual shape
moving across the sky, very reminiscent of the 'Hull Sky Slug. The craft
was as large as a four bedroom house. It was hovering over a farm house,
near Humberside airport (North Lincolnshire). The event happened from
7:50 to 8:00 PM, and was witnessed by three separate vehicles, and their
occupants. The driver of one of these has already spoken to me. Details
- FLORIDA, GEORGIA, TEXAS FAST MOVING GREEN
- There are numerous reports of fast moving balls of fire
reported in various states. They are generally green or blue. These may
be bolides or similar meteoric like objects. However there seems to be
some correlation between these fast moving objects, loud explosions and
UFO reports. The newspaper stories such as *Tampa Tribune |report Bright
Very Fast Moving Ball of Fire with Blazing Tail on November 11, 1999.
- PRESIDENT CLINTON'S WARNINGS OF CONTACT
- Charlie Quinn writes: Yes, I think that Bill Clinton
is trying to gradually sensitize the American people to the evident reality
of penetration of our air space by UFOs and the clear and present danger
that they represent. Further confirmation of that fact can be gleaned
from the motion picture "CONTACT" starring Jodi Foster. In that
movie, which clearly tended to ESTABLISH alien contact with human beings,
Clinton allowed videotapes of himself to be used in the context of the
movie. While there was an official declaration that the President did
not endorse the theme of the movie, he is shown in one film clip as saying.
"Yes, this is true. It is a fact!" Now the clip was taken from
a press conference where he was addressing other issues, but the White
House allowed use of that film clip to reinforce and support the main theme
of the movie. This is more than just coincidence. Webb Hubbell , in his
book, stated that Clinton, as President, assigned him to find out as much
as possible about the existence of UFOs. Hubbell, remains a loyal supporter
of Clinton and friend. Is all of this just coincidence? I think not.
In his book, "The Day after Roswell," Lt. Colonel Corso, stated
clearly that S.D.I- the so-called Star Wars program was developed to provide
a shield of protection, not against Russian aggression, but against the
aggression of alien cultures. (The Forward of this book was written by
Senator Strom Thurmond.) I also believe that the Egyptian air crash was
due to a complete power failure while in flight- a power failure that could
-- I emphasize the word "could"-- be explained by interference
caused by UFOs. Thanks to Charlie Quinn, Cquinn5630@aol.com

- US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine
UFO Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology
Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution
to the public. Lunar Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell was at Edwards the night
the UFO chase occurred. The 6th person to walk on the moon said, "The
night it happened I investigated it myself and this was a real event."
Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called THE EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE
ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings
provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs
invade secure air space and came down low over the runways at Edwards AFB.
Tower operator Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense
Command. Sgt. Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment
where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival recordings.
The UFOs are described and a decision is made to launch F-106 fighter
interceptors. You are there for an important part of UFO history. Hear
it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made. Tape cost is $14.95
each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 --(for overseas orders-out
