The internet has often been criticised for dumbing down ufology.
Publishing in depth research in the traditional manner is expensive and
doesn't grab the headlines. As a result, UFO magazines have lost
readership as newcomers turn to the web for more easily accessible, but
often poor quality, ufology.
To redress this, American ufologist Kevin Randle has published a major
online investigation to "methodically and dispassionately review some
of the classic [UFO] cases." His contribution is a detailed treatment
of the 1948 Thomas Mantell case, in which the pilot died whilst pursuing
a 'flying saucer.' Kevin has used contemporary USAF documents and
interviews with eye-witnesses to build a chronological account of the
tragedy. The case file is interactive, allowing investigators to add
their own comments to the peer-review process. Kevin's paper can be

In the UK, a group of experienced ufologists are also publishing their own
reinvestigation of a classic radar-visual case from 1956. The
Lakenheath-Bentwaters event was one of the 30 cases classified as
'unidentified' by the 1969 Colorado University UFO study [Condon Report]
commissioned by the USAF. Since then, the case has been picked apart in
UFO books and magazines, many of which based their accounts on inaccurate
information. Since 1996, much new information has been discovered relating
to the RAF's role in the events. This has allowed the UK team to completely
overhaul the history of the case, with surprising results both for
believers and sceptics.
The new site will showcase all the evidence, including U.S. and UK documents
obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, interviews with pilots and
military personnel, alongside commentary from experts. The file -- running
to several hundred pages -- will be unique in the history of ufology. A
