      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'
      intergalactic highway.

      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
      12, 1897.

      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

      Water.. Water!!!

      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
      driver program.

      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
      whistling sound.

      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

      Amazing speed.

      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
      flew away.

      Sky-watching? Hmm.

      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
      be strange...
