Subject: [ufotruthseekers] "Strange Encounters" The Alien Breakdown Syndrome
Many people have written on why we are being visited by aliens from
outer space. I propose one theory; I'll call it the "Alien Breakdown
syndrome" for lack of a better term. I have a feeling our alien
friends do have an advanced technology, but that it may have a
few "bugs" in the system and that they may not be as advanced as we
would like to imagine they are. Sometimes they may be lost, tired,
hungry, or just having a breakdown on the side of the old'
I hope you don't mind my slightly irreverent look at UFO history. I
want you to remember, all the folks mentioned in these reports were
serious individuals who saw something very unusual and then took the
time to report it. All reports come from either the Magonia files or
from Project Bluebook's 701 unknown files. Looking back I do find
there are enough facts in the records to warrant further research
into the subject of Alien Breakdowns.
First, I have a very early example of an alien breakdown from April
On April 12, 1897 near Green Ridge, Illinois, a large crowd of miners
saw an unknown object land 3 km north of Green Ridge and 4 km south
of Girard. The night operator of the Chicago-and-Alton Railroad, Paul
McCramer, stated that he came sufficiently close to the craft to see
a man emerge from it to repair the machinery. Traces were found over
a large area. The object itself was elongated like a ship with a roof
and a double canopy. It left toward the north.
Another report of a breakdown April 14, 1897 just two days later.
Where's Charles Fort when you need him?
On April 14, 1897 in Gas City, Indiana, an object landed 2 km south
of Gas City on the property of John Roush, terrifying the farmers and
causing the horses and cattle to stampede. Six occupants of the ship
came out and seemed to make some repairs. Before the crowd could
approach the object, it rose rapidly and flew toward the east.
And yet another report from just one day later of another roadside
repair job.AAA in Space. On April 15, 1897 in Springfield, Illinois,
two farm workers, Adolph Winkle and John Hulle, saw a strange craft
in a field. They had a discussion with its occupants, a woman and two
men, and were told the ship-had flown from Quincy to Springfield in
30 min and that the crew was making electrical repairs.
And a week later another report, and the witness actually made some
cash money on this one.
On April 22, 1897 in Rockland, Texas, a John M. Barclay was intrigued
when his dog barked furiously and a high-pitched noise was heard. He
went out, saw a flying object circling 5 m above ground. Elongated
with protrusions and blinding lights, it went dark when it landed.
Barclay was met by a man who told him his purpose was peaceful and
requested some common hardware items to repair the craft. He paid
with a ten-dollar bill and took off "like a bullet out of a gun."
A more modern report of a roadside repair comes from Oklahoma (my
home state) notice the amount of detail in the report, even the
craft's identification number, now that's a good witness.
On March 23, 1966 in Temple, Oklahoma an electronics instructor, who
was driving to work at a local Air Force Base, observed an object
blocking the road. It was shaped like an airplane fuselage, 25 m
long, with a "bubble" on top resembling the canopy on a B-26, rested
on legs, and had very bright aft and forward lights. There was a door
and a short stairway to the side of the object, and a man in
coveralls appeared to be examining the craft which bore the
identification "TL 4768" When the witness approached, the "pilot"
went back inside, a sound resembling that of a high speed drill was
heard, and the object rose. No engine was observed. The witness was
familiar with all conventional military aircraft.
This time we encounter downright dumb activities by aliens from 1897.
On April 25, 1897 in Merkel, Texas, People returning from church
observed a heavy object being dragged along the ground by a rope
attached to a flying craft. The rope got caught in a railroad track.
The craft was too high for its structure to be visible but
protrusions and a light could be distinguished. After about 10 min a
man came down along the rope cut the end free, and went back aboard
the craft, which flew away toward the northeast. The man was small
and dressed in a light blue uniform.
We come in peace; we only want your dog.
On November 6, 1957 in Everittstown, New Jersey, a John Trasco saw a
brilliant, egg-shaped object hovering in front of a barn and was
confronted with a being 1 m tall with a putty-colored face and frog-
like eyes. He thought the dwarf said in broken English: "We are
peaceful people; we only want your dog." The little man, who was
dressed in a green suit with shiny buttons, a green tam-o-shanter-
like cap, and gloves with a shiny object at the tip of each finger,
fled when the witness denied his request.
And some pancakes.
On April 18, 1961 in Eagle River, Wisconsin, a J. Simonton heard a
whining sound and saw an object, 10 m in diameter, 4 m high, with
exhaust pipes around the periphery, land near his house. A door was
opened and a man appeared. About 1.50 m tall, he wore a black, turtle-
neck pullover with a white band at the belt, and black trousers with
a vertical white band along the side. Two figures were visible inside
the object. Simonton filled a jug with water, returned it to the man,
who gave him three ordinary pancakes, and the craft took off.
And a glass of water to go please.
On June 15, 1964 in Aria, Chile, a miner, R. A. Donoso, observed a
strange machine land. From it emerged two fair skinned men who asked
for water in a language, which appeared to be a mixture of English
and Spanish. Donoso took some water from his car radiator for them
and they left. Their craft was about 3 m long and 1 m wide.
And while were on the subject of water to go.
On August 1914 in Georgian Bay, Canada, a William J. Kiehl and seven
other persons saw a spherical craft on the surface of the water. On
its deck were two small men wearing green-purple clothes. They seemed
to be busy with a hose, plunging it into the water. On the opposite
side were three men dressed in light brown, wearing square masks down
to their shoulders. Seeing the witnesses, they reentered the craft
except for one dwarf, wearing shoes with a curved, pointed tip, which
remained outside while the craft rose 3 m above the water and shot
upward, leaving a short trail
On July 16, 1964 in Conklin, New York a Edmund Travis, 9, Randy
Travis, 7 Floyd Moore, 10, and two other boys, saw a dwarf dressed in
a black suit and a helmet, with a glass section in front of his face,
which looked human. He appeared to request some water in a strange
tone, which sounded, "as if it came from a pipe." He then walked to a
shiny machine partially hidden in the brush, as the boys ran home.
Another UFO that needed some H20 is reported on July 2, 1950 in Steep
Rock Lake, Canada. A man and his wife saw a double saucer with
portholes and a rotating antenna come to rest on the surface of the
lake. Ten figures, 1.20 m tall, dressed in shiny clothing, emerged
and walked on deck like robots "changing direction without turning
their bodies." Their faces could not be seen. One of them wore a red
cap, had darker arms and legs and "seemed to be their chief." They
immersed a hose in the lake, and then took off. Fishermen later
reported a green moss forming on the lake.
Another out of water UFO with a MIB from 1952.
On July 24, 1952 in Vico, Italy, a man who was fishing in the Serchio
River saw a disk hovering for 10 min. From it hung a hose that
plunged into the water. The object was 20 m in diameter, with five
propellers in the rear and a dome with something like blades on top.
An orange glow could be seen through slits along the deck. A man
wearing a diving helmet looked at the witness through a window, and
he received a kind of electric shock as a "green ray" hit him. He
looked up with difficulty, in time to see the object fly away toward
the east. Six days later a stranger with a foreign accent contacted
the witness and intimidated him
Water Water everywhere!!!
On May 20, 1953 in Brush Creek, California, Two miners, John Q.
Black, 48, and John Van Allen, reported that an object, silvery, 2.5
m in diameter, 2 m thick, with a tripod landing gear, landed on a
sand bar 50 m away from them. An occupant described as a broad-
shouldered dwarf wearing clothing that covered the head and the trunk
was also seen. His arms and legs were covered with tweed like cloth
fastened at the wrists and ankle. He filled a shiny pail with water
and handed it to someone inside the craft. He then appeared to notice
Black and jumped into the craft, which made a hissing sound and
Everyone water logged? I sure am.
Have you ever notice that we have had many reports of "UFO Crashes"?
I have, and I wonder sometimes if some aliens might need a designated
In March 1945 near Belfast, Maine a man out hunting observed an
elongated object flying very slowly, tilted toward the earth. It
crashed into some trees at the end of a clearing. The enormous craft
seemed undamaged as it rested briefly on the ground, then lifted
again with a humming sound, started to spin, released a shower of
fine silvery threads, and rose straight up, disappearing in seconds.
I think this is the only report I have seen of a UFO doing a loop; I
just wonder what he was on.
On October 12, 1954 in Sainte-Marie d'Herblay, France, a Gilbert
Lelay, 13, saw a phosphorescent cigar in a pasture and a man near it,
wearing a gray suit, boots, and a gray hat. He held a flashing sphere
and told Gilbert in French not to touch it. He went back inside the
craft, which flew in loops and vanished.
Here's another bad driver report from 1952, If they are so advanced,
why can they avoid hitting a chimney?
On August 27, 1952 in Lamberton, North Carolina, a saucer-shaped
craft, 3 by 2 m, landed on the witness's property after hitting a
chimney. A little man, about 70 cm tall, emerged and was asked
whether he was hurt, but he did not answer. The craft took off with a
Sometimes a good road map can go a long way, just don't give out the
time, as you can see from these accounts
On October 20, 1954 in Raon-l'Etage, France, Forty-year-old Lazlo
Ujvari was suddenly confronted by a man wearing a jacket, boots, and
cloth headgear (like a pilot's) who pointed a gun at him and said
something he could not understand. When Ujvari spoke to him in
Russian, the man answered in the same language, asked whether he was
in Spain or Italy, and how far he was from Germany. When he asked the
time, Ujvari said: "2:30." The man took his watch and said "You
lie; it's 4:00." Then he wanted to know how far and in what direction
Marseilles was. He made Ujvari walk on the road with him, and they
came close to a gray craft with an antenna on top. When he was about
200 m away, he heard a soft whistling sound and saw it fly straight
up, then take an oblique trajectory.
Nothing like making friends with newcomers, they were lost and still
took him for a trip.
On February 1949 in Pucusana, Peru, a C. A. V. an oil company
employee, 30, was driving to Lima when he saw a shiny disk at ground
level. He walked toward it for 10 min. Three figures came out, as he
was 20 m away. They looked like mummies, had joined legs and one
large foot. They "slid" along the ground. They were covered with a
strange "towely" skin, asked the witness where they were, had a
lengthy discussion with him, and took him for a trip in their craft.
These aliens would fit in out there in Hollywood, they could land and
no one would notice, nice outfits though.
On November 6, 1957 in Playa del Rey, California, a Richard Kehoe was
driving near the beach when his engine stopped, and so did three
other cars. The man got out and observed an egg-shaped object wrapped
in "a blue haze" on the beach. Two men, below average height got out
of the craft and asked them questions about their identity, what time
it was, etc. They looked normal wore black leather pants, white
belts, light-colored jerseys, and seemed to have yellowish-green
skin. They went back inside the craft, which left rapidly, and the
cars could then be started.
They liked his dog.
On October 4, 1954 in Chaleix, France, a farmer, Mr. Garreau, saw an
object the size of a carriage land in his field. Two men of normal
height emerged through a sliding door.
They wore khaki overalls and were of European type. They shook hands
with the witness and said something like: "Paris? Nord?" (According
to another version they spoke indistinct words.) They gave a pat on
the back to Mr. Garreau's dog and took off at an
More breakdowns this time with rubber pants.
On October 9, 1954 in Rinkerode, Germany a Willi Hoge, a
projectionist, saw four occupants of an object that had come to
ground level 70 m from the road. He was returning home when he
observed a blue light and thought an airplane had made an emergency
landing. The object was cigar-shaped, and four men wearing rubber
coveralls were working under it. They were about 1.2 m tall and had
very large chests and oversized heads; their legs were short and thin
A breakdown with tight-fitting clothes.
On April 24, 1950 in Abbiate Guazzone, Italy, a Bruno Facchini heard
and saw sparks coming from a dark, hovering object, near which a man
dressed in tight-fitting clothes and wearing a helmet seemed to be
making repairs. Three other men were seen near the craft. When the
work was finished, a trap through which light had been shining was
closed and the thing took off. The witness had the time to note many
details of the machine and its occupants.
On June 19, 1951 in Sonderborg, Denmark, a Joseph Matiszewski, a
mechanic, heard a whistling sound and saw an object land in a meadow.
Approaching within 50 m, he found himself paralyzed and observed that
birds had stopped singing and cows seemed to be similarly unable to
move. From the object emerged four handed- men who had brown skin and
wore black shiny suits and translucent helmets. Eight objects also
emerged from the craft and hovered above it. Other men inside the
craft and on its deck appeared to be making repairs, then the objects
flew to about 100 m altitude and climbed rapidly out of sight. Only
then did the paralysis subside.
On September 24, 1954 in Becar, near Diges and "Les Michauts" or "Les
Jolivets", France, two women (Widow Geoffroy and Miss Gisele Fin)
made independent reports of a dark gray disk, 6 m in diameter, 1 m
high, seen in a clearing. A man of normal height was standing close
to it. He wore dark clothes and a kind of cap. Miss Fin came within
30 m of the craft and stated the man was repairing it. Traces were
found on the grass.
Why didn't you tell me before I touched it? Thanks a bunch!
On October 23, 1954 in Tripoli, Libya, a farmer saw a flying craft
descend to ground level about 50 m away, with a sound like that of a
compressor. It was an egg-shaped machine with six wheels and complex
machinery. The top half was transparent, flooded with bright white
light. Aboard were six men in yellowish coveralls, having human faces
and masks. When he touched part of the craft, the witness felt a
strong electric shock. One of the occupants motioned for him to stay
away. For the next 20 min, the witness was able to observe the six
men, apparently busy with instruments. Reliable investigations were
Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the flowers.and steal them.
On November 1, 1954 in Poggio d'Ambra, Italy, a 40-year-old lady
going to a cemetery suddenly observed an object, shaped like two
cones with a common base, resting on a grassy space. Two small seats
were visible inside the lower cone. From behind the object appared
two dwarfs, 1 m tall, wearing gray coveralls and reddish helmets.
Speaking words she could not understand, and with smiles that showed
fine white teeth, they took a pot of flowers from the witness and
In summer, 1952 in Itenhaem, Brazil, a thunderclap and a strong
bluish light awakened a woman. As she got out, she saw a large number
of hovering disk-shaped machines resembling "inverted soup plates"
200 m away at an altitude of about 1 m. She observed them for 30 min,
saw two figures standing on one of the craft and looking at the sky.
They went back inside, and shortly thereafter the "fleet" took off,
one object at a time.
And you gotta stop to smell the grass.
In March 1954 near Santa Maria, Brazil, a Rubem Hellwig was driving
when he saw a football-shaped machine, the size of a Volkswagen, on
the ground. He walked toward it and met two men of slim build, normal
height, their faces brownish, wearing no helmets. One was inside the
object while the other collected grass samples. They spoke to Hellwig
in a strange language, and yet he said he understood they were asking
for ammonia. He directed them to a nearby town. The craft vanished
silently and instantly with blue and yellow flames.
And we should also include the just plain rude type aliens.
On July 2, 1953 in Villares des Saz, Spain, Approximate date. An
illiterate boy cowherd, Maximo Munos Olivares, 14, saw a "big
balloon" on the ground behind him when a faint whistling attracted
his attention. Shaped like a water jug, it was metallic. Through an
opening came three dwarfs 60 cm tall, with yellow faces, narrow eyes,
and oriental features. They spoke in a language he could not
understand. They were dressed in blue, had a sort of flat hat with a
visor in front and a metal sheet on their arms. One of them smacked
the boy's face, and then they reentered the machine, which glowed
very brightly, made a soft whistling sound and went off "like a
rocket." Footprints and four holes 5 cm deep forming a perfect square
36 cm in side were found by police.
They came to Earth to destroy the newspaper?
On December 16, 1965 in Sauce Viejo, Argentina, a railroad worker,
Cesar T.Gallardo, was surprised when his carbide lamp and his radio
stopped working. He saw strange lights outside the sleeping coach
where he was reading, and a luminous being whose legs were clad in
shiny dark cloth came in, tore up his newspaper, poured the contents
of an oil can into a small bottle and went away, leaving the witness
amazed. Other people saw "a luminous man" walking along the tracks.
And a "Dbano da skigyay o dbano," to you too, buddy!
On October 19, 1954 in Fabriano, Italy, Two men saw a disk-shaped
object, 6 m diameter, hovering and emitting small violet flashes. On
top of it was a very high antenna. Two small robot like beings, 1.2 m
tall, descended from it on a long ladder. Their eyes were "sharp" and
dark red. They said something that sounded like "Dbano da skigyay o
dbano," went back aboard their craft, and flew away
Remember; you should always make friendly gestures to aliens.
On September 10, 1954 in Mourieras, France, a farmer, Mr. Mazaud was
walking home when he was suddenly confronted with a helmeted being of
average height who made friendly gestures, then went back into the
brush, entered a cigar-shaped object about 4 m long, which took off
toward Limoges. A few minutes' later witnesses in Limoges reported a
disk-shaped, red object leaving a bluish trail.
Again on September 17, 1954 in Cenon, France, Between Cenon and
Vouneuil, Yves David, 28, met a being in a diving suit that made
friendly gestures. He was very small and had a voice "inhuman and
incomprehensible." The witness could not move throughout the
encounter. He saw the creature enter an object on the road, about 3 m
by 1 m in size; it took off "like lightning," throwing a greenish
And on October 1, 1954 in Jussey, France, Two young men saw a
luminous white disk moving in the sky. It dived to the ground and two
men, described as being very tall and dressed in white, emerged from
it and made gestures. The witnesses ran away in fear.
On May 1, 1957 at Pajasblancas Airport in Argentina. When his
motorcycle suddenly failed, the driver observed a disk, 20 m in
diameter and 5 m thick, hovering about 15 m above ground. He hid
in a ditch and saw the craft come down, making a sound similar to air
escaping from a valve. A sort of lift descended from its base almost
to the ground. In it was a man of average height, who made friendly
gestures to the witness. He was dressed in a plastic diving suit. The
witness entered the machine and saw inside several people seated
before instrument panels, lighted by an extraordinary light. He was
then escorted out, and the disk rose to the northwest. During the
next hour, independent witnesses made six sightings along the same
Our new secret weapon- flash cameras.
On February 21, 1965 in Chalac, Argentina, About 50 Toba Indians,
including policemen, saw three little men with luminous glows emerge
from an object that had made several low passes over the village with
other flying craft. A photographer took several pictures and noted
that the creatures feared the light from his flash camera. The object
increased in luminosity as it took off.
And be sure to take plenty of pictures too!
On March 2, 1965 in Brooksville, Florida a John F. Reeves, 65,
retired, was walking in the woods when he observed an object10 m in
diameter, 2m thick, saucer-shaped with an outer rim and a stairway.
After watching it for 10 min, he saw a robot-like being, about 1.30m
tall, wearing a silver uniform, glass headgear, and then returned
with a box that emitted a flash when pointed at the witness. The
object subsequently took off with a whistling sound.
And sometimes when you just gotta go.those intergalactic rest stops
are getting farther and farther apart.
On September 20, 1965 in Pichaca, Peru, a farmwoman saw an object
land, and six dwarfs, 80 cm tall, emerged from it. They wore very
shiny white clothes and "walked like ducks." She hid during the
observation, and noted that they spoke in a language she could not
understand. After their departure, a liquid resembling vinegar was
found on the ground.
More Breakdowns, maybe we should start an intergalactic Auto Club?
On October 11, 1954 in Taupignac, France, Three men driving near
Taupignac got out of their car to observe an intense red sphere in
the sky. Then they discovered a round machine with a dome, 6 m
diameter, giving off a yellow-red light, 200 m away at 10 m altitude.
It was motionless and silent. It suddenly moved horizontally for a
short distance and landed behind a wood. Two witnesses went closer
and saw four dwarfs, 1 m tall, who seemed busy with the machine. The
creatures rushed inside when the witnesses arrived within 15 m. The
witness was blinded by a sudden burst of light, blue, then orange,
then red, and the object took off vertically at fantastic speed.
These reports make me think our alien friends are a little weird, to
say the least. I guess if your going to have an encounter, it should
