- UFO Close Encounters
- The Reality as Seen by Former High Level Government and Military
- Pilots to Tell Their UFO Stories for the First Time
Group to call on US Government to Re-Open its Investigation
The American public is not alone when it comes to sighting what the
US Air Force has labeled Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). So too
have former governors, high level military and government officials,
highly trained airplane pilots and aviation experts. The phenomenon
is real. It happens worldwide. No one is sure about its nature.
Experts from seven countries will divulge what they have discovered
about UFOs at a November 12 panel discussion moderated by former
Arizona Governor Fife Symington (R) at the National Press Club.
Just one year ago, pilots, mechanics and managers from United Airlines
witnessed a metallic disc-shaped object hovering over the United
Airlines Terminal at Chicago's O'Hare Airport. The clearly observed
object shot straight up leaving a hole through the clouds. Despite
the clear aviation safety issues involved, the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) never investigated the incident and dismissed it
as weather. This head-in-the-clouds refusal to investigate stands in
sharp contrast to efforts by governments of other countries to
understand these incidents.
"I believe that our government should take an active role in
investigating this very real phenomenon," said Symington, who was a
witness to the famed Phoenix Lights" incident seen by hundreds in
Arizona while he was governor. "This panel consists of some of the
most qualified people in the world with direct experience in dealing
with this issue, and they will bring incredible, irrefutable
evidence, some never presented before, that we simply cannot dismiss
or ignore," he said.
The group, using previously classified documents, will discuss many
well-documented cases, including two investigated by the US
government. The first involves a Peruvian Air Force pilot who fired
many rounds at a UFO which was not affected. The second was an
Iranian Air Force pilot's attempt to fire at a UFO, but whose control
panel became inoperable. "This case is a classic that meets all the
necessary conditions for a legitimate study of the UFO phenomenon,"
stated the US Defense Intelligence Agency document on the Tehran
incident. Both pilots will come forward to speak about these events
publicly for the first time.

WHAT: Former Arizona Governor Fife Symington will moderate a
distinguished panel of former high-ranking government, aviation, and
military officials from seven countries to discuss close encounters
with what the US Air Force describes as Unidentified Flying Objects
(UFOs). Representatives from France, England, Belgium, Chile, Peru,
Iran and the US will call for the US Government to join in an
international dialogue and re-open its investigation - which the Air
Force shut down over 30 years ago - in cooperation with other
governments currently dealing with this unusual and controversial
phenomenon. While on active duty, the panelists have either witnessed
a UFO incident or have conducted an official investigation into UFO
cases relevant to aviation safety and national security.
