January 4th, 2019 Update: TexasUFOs has received incredible, new witness testimony that corroborates this article (scroll down to read the original one). According to a witness who would like to be known as "2005," dozens of bright silver flying saucers were seen flying over Waco, Texas (specifically at the address of 2005 South 7th Street) on May 16th, 1954, just a few months before the event that I featured on this site more than a year ago:
Wow playing in the backyard of my family's home I looked up and observe over 30 flying saucers flying in a V shape formation. This was not the first time that I and other kids in the neighborhood so these UFOs it was very common especially late at night to see them streaking across the night sky. Now that I'm older I think they were observing the goings-on James Connally Air Force Base. I never was afraid because they didn't seem to pose a threat just curious I believe. There was a time in the fifties an early sixties when people set out in their yards escape the Heat and if you look up you can see all kind of strange lights in the sky.
A really phenomenal and detailed account of 30+ flying saucers flying in formation over the James Connally Air Force Base (now, a public use airport) in Waco, Texas in 1954 has just now surfaced on MUFON (case 85062). The witness wanted to take a picture of the event, but as he was training to become a fighter pilot at the time, he was not able to break the line and grab a camera. Although I could not find any photos or videos of this sighting, apparently the Air Force Base was able to confirm that the UFOs were hovering at 100,000 feet and were extremely large, about 100-feet in diameter. Read the testimony:
Saw thirty three 100 foot diameter flying saucers in three formations together
I was able to find two articles from the Waco Tribune from the same year (January 1954 issue) that document a local's sighting of a flying saucer in November from the year prior, and curiously enough, a news story about flying saucer-detecting cameras being installed at "60 control towers and 15 air defense sites," which matches up nicely to the witness claims that the base "had to keep detailed record of the saucers:"
What do you think of this incredible testimony? During the 1940s and 50s, there were many documented flying saucer and UFO sightings, from Roswell to the White House UFO incident; perhaps this sighting should have joined that well-known documentation.
Or could this testimony simply be a hoax, or even an overreaction to something a bit more mundane? Though this seems unlikely, as the witness wrote into MUFON anonymously and with absolutely no fanfare... share your ideas on this story in the comments below, and/or join the discussion over on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
If you remember this mass UFO sighting in Waco from the 1950s, or remember hearing about it, please help with this case and report your experience.
Top Secret Files Leaked of ET Crash Landing and Recovery of Live Alien - The 1996 "Hungarian Roswell" You Never Knew About
Check out UFOJane's new YouTube video about these amazing leaked files:
On February 7th, a Slovakian ufologist claimed to leak "top secret" UFO files from the Hungarian Air Force to MUFON. Texas UFO Sightings has looked into the files and feels it's well worth sharing with the UFO community for further investigation. The files document a September 18th, 1996 crash between a Hungarian air force pilot and an extra-terrestrial space craft, interactions with the live ET recovered from the crash, and a plan to hide the information from the public, even profiling witnesses, in particular a curious ufologist. The original Hungarian documents have been leaked in a recent MUFON report and previously in 2013 by Slovokian ufology website. (The source could be the same for both.)
Whether or not these files can ever be validated, it's crucial to note that the crash in question did actually happen - the cause of it is the only thing up for debate. The following is a summary of the contents of these files, based on translations shared in both the MUFON report and the ufology website. Texas UFO Sightings "Google translated" some key phrases, but overall could not translate the blurry photo copies. If you speak Hungarian, and can help verify the translations below, please reach out.
Hungarian Air Force "UFO" Files:
The crash apparently happened in the town of Papa, south of Lajosmizse in central Hungary:
According to the many documents (10+ pages) published over a period of time, two alien bodies were retrieved from the crash - one was dead and had an autopsy perfomed, while the other was alive and detained. The living alien resembled a small humanoid man (sounds like Roswell), and the Hungarian/Slovakian government wasn't able to learn much from the alien but speculated it was angry at them, and plotting an escape that would rely on some sort of "cosmic energy" beyond the Air Force's understanding:
[Translation] Over the past five days it was made one attempt to engage in some mutual communication between him and us. It does not respond to any of our experiments - we have the impression that harbors anger toward us because of detentions. Or does not communicate telepathically - the attempt was unsuccessful. We do not have sufficient experience with it, an expert in telepathy could not be present due to confidentiality reasons.
The government also had theories about the alien's space craft:
"The power unit of the device is a machine, but the fact we have not nedopracovali. The machine works on the principle of an unknown, probably produces or uses magnetic effects. Opinions are divided. Some of us believe that the motion itself does not produce the necessary energy power unit, but the unit it receives from the cosmos. We suspect some "lines of force", "energy channels" or other physical phenomena."
There was concern about the witnesses:
"The second eyewitness could be a problem since disappeared. From what he learned from ufology literature he was so cautious that has caught on to what will follow."
Eventually, the event gets classified as operation "Second Object" and it is decided that anything related to it should be hidden from public:
[Translation]"So, gentlemen, we can sum it up. The "second object" do not say, even confidential, insider circles! After the house this operation action name "MO" ( "second object") *. Later, we decide that what will happen next with flying objects and live alien beings brought to the base. This is not just about us. While it is most important to be published in print only what used to be published in other cases. Everything else that refers to "MO", we have to hide from the public."
What makes the files all the more intriguing is that (1) there is barely anything online about them and no clear attempt to profit from them, and (2) the pilot who crashed into this ET ship is real - there's in fact an official public record of the September 1996 crash and pilot Attila Dobay's ejection from his plane, due to "hydraulic problems":
Finally, the MUFON report includes a detailed plea for the ufology community to share this case with the world and place it next to UFO events like the Roswell crash in history:
"we ask all amateur (but also professional if any) ufology researchers from around the world to help us with this important case help in its dissemination and awareness that this information is disseminated further, especially among us, ufologist and also among the general public. Please inform about this serious incident ufological our other colleagues around the world, bark of Hungary Roswell do not yet know."
If these documents are real, they join a very large mountain of now declassified files from all over the world. The CIA even recently blogged about its own UFO X-files, and went so far as to encourage thorough investigation of flying saucers and other unidentified flying objects. (Yes, really.) Even Hillary Clinton has made UFO Disclosure a campaign talking point. (Yes, really.)
Clearly, a lot has come out about UFOs since this supposed 1996 "Hungarian Roswell."
Is the public informed enough now that it's finally okay for world governments to be open with its citizens about extra-terrestrials and UFOs? Citizens have an opportunity to give the green light to the government that they can handle the truth about UFOs (George Bush Sr. recently said Americans couldn't) and not only that, but help to calmly document it. In fact, Disclosure is not really about aliens, it's about You. You discussing your thoughts on all things UFOs and ET - head over to the Facebook page now!
Full MUFON report un-edited:
Long Description of Sighting Report We ufologist from Slovakia, and this at this point, the whole world reported that on Wednesday evening on september (09) 18. 1996, around 18:35 CET in Veszprém county, near the village Pápa and Ugod Hungary, there was a very serious incident ufology. Military aircraft of Soviet production Mikoyan-Gurevich, MiG-21 bis-75AP "Fishbed L" s number 5822, piloted by Captain Mr. Attila Dobay, was the unlucky hit in vehicles of extraterrestrial origin. Aircraft and IFO UFO before, successfully identified as IAC, that is identified by an alien spaceship, after colliding with each other with the plane crashed to the ground, in the approximate area, here are the approximate GPS Coordinates:
In the latest YouTube video, UFOJane discusses the exciting close encounters of Truman Bethurum:
A recent video showing creepy, glowing lights forming a triangle and hovering ominously over an air force based in New Mexico has been sent into MUFON along with testimony (case 91887):
driving home from work on base, and casually glanced to my right (south) and noticed two orange yellow lights floating and casting a lot of light on the ground between 1 & 7 miles away. I pulled over to look closer and as I was recording with my phone a third appeared in a triangle formation with with the other two. they did not appear to move or fall I heard no audible noise. i know it was not flares from anything cause they were stationary and the only thing in the direction i was looking was open desert.nor was it an aircraft. after i observed for around 5 minutes they all just disappeared within quick succession.
What is especially interesting about this sighting is the location. The Hollomon Air Force Base is the rumored location of President Eisenhower's second meeting with extraterrestrial beings, specially "the Grays." He had apparently met with the Blue Nordics at Edwards Air Force Base a year earlier!
It is believed that the US government was working on a treaty with aliens, who wanted peace, but also wanted to abduct citizens. The rest is, well, secret history... unbelievably, the evidence of this conspiracy theory is surprisingly compelling. A former US representative, Henry McElroy Jr., for example, claims to have read the document that proved Eisenhower was planning this ET meeting!
Considering the Hollomon Air Force Base's reputation as an ET landing zone, it's probably worth it to take UFO sightings in the area seriously!
What do you think of the latest UFO seen at the base, and of the legendary stories that originate from the base? Share your ideas on all of this in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
One of the most terrifying and dangerous UFO encounters of all-time occurred in a place you might expect it to occur - the deep, dark, spooky woods. On December 29th, 1980, Becky Cash and Vicki Landrum, as well as Landrum's 7-year-old grandson Colby, were driving through the Piney Woods of East Texas when they spotted a large, diamond-shaped (but with no bottom or top) craft hovering overhead.
Becky, who was driving at the time, and Vicki stepped out of their vehicle to get a closer look, and as they were observing the ominous craft, which hovered in mid air and emitted flames before taking off, 20+ helicopters approached it. The sighting lasted an incredible 8-10 minutes. However, Becky and Vicki's decision to get a closer look at the UFO would soon prove to be a bad one.
When Betty and Vicki went back to re-enter their car, they noticed the door handles were hot to the touch! But that was only the beginning of their troubles.
All three witnesses ended up experiencing classic symptoms of radiation poisoning shortly after the encounter, including skin blisters, nausea and hair loss. Their medical ailments were so well-documented, in fact, especially for Betty Cash, that the witnesses sued the US government for their medical bills, claiming that it knew about the dangers of this UFO but were pretending to be ignorant about it. The US government denied any knowledge of the incident, however, and the suit was ultimately thrown out.
The only surviving witness of the Cash-Landrum Incident is Colby, the grandson of Vicki Landrum, and he has done an interview as an adult and shares the same basic memories of his grandmother.
As well, many UFO researchers and authors have tried to do the case justice and continue to investigate to this day.
Skeptics are hot on the trail, as well. One writer accused Betty and Vicki of hoaxing the incident, as it would be unlikely that the two would choose to watch the UFO (rather than flee the scene), and it would also be unlikely that the two would remember such great detail about the encounter (like the number of helicopters). None of this skepticism is warranted, if you ask me. If Vicky and Betty had continued driving and never stopped to observe the UFO, the same writer might ask "why didn't they stop to look at it or follow it?" Similarly, if Vicki and Betty didn't provide detail about their encounter, the same writer may accuse them of making it all up. Furthermore, the encounter lasted for several minutes, plenty of time to count up the number of helicopters in the sky.
This skeptical writer also claimed the US government had zero knowledge about any UFOs. In 2017, however, the New York Times revealed that the government has indeed investigated UFOs secretly, and in modern times.
As always, you be the judge about whether this amazing UFO sighting is real or not. If it is real, it's one of the more disturbing UFO cases ever on record.
Fun fact: the Cash-Landrum Incident occurred just one day after the Rendlesham Forest incident, a UFO case even more infamous!
