      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
      found at:

      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
