taken from THE UFO CRASH/RETRIEVAL SYNDROME
Status Report II: New Sources, New Data
By Leonard H. Stringfield
my second lecture, April 6, 1978, before the Cincinnati
Chapter of the World Wings Association, a gathering of
50 or more pilots, I was approached by a member of the
association who knew of a "person at work" who,
in turn, knew about crashed UFOs and occupants. As reported
in Abstract #19 of my previous paper, I promptly got in
April 18, 1978, I talked with former Air Force Sergeant
MS of the 97th Bomber Wing. He was prepared to relate
information from a high-ranking Intelligence source relative
to the retrieval of alien craft and humanoid occupants
allegedly maintained at Wright-Patterson AFB. He also
related a sobering story about a landing on an Air Force
base, also from the same source. MS, while serving at
Wright-Patterson AFB in 1977, made close acquaintance
with Major General "T," who was assigned at
Wright-Patterson for top security work in the Logistics
Command. His rank and the nature of his work entitled
him to a plane at his disposal at all times. He and the
General's daughter (name known to me) were seriously lovelorn,
and on that basis were frequently together. This allowed
MS to be a guest at the General's home where he and the
general had private chats.
General "T," according to my informant, details
were disclosed concerning a UFO that had crashed in the
southwest region of the United States in 1957. At that
time, General "T" was a Lt. Colonel. According
to the General, radar had confirmed that an alien craft
had crossed the skies over the United States at great
speed. It was tracked to the point of its crash. The area,
as in most cases, was "roped off," and a military
unit summoned (with canines) for maximum security.
the damaged craft, four humanoid bodies were recovered
with great difficulty because of the inability to penetrate
the craft's metal structure. The deceased bodies were
found badly burned, some parts so severely that certain
features were indistinguishable. However, the suits they
wore - appearing silver - were not damaged by the obviously
intense heat endured inside the craft. Said the General,
"The suits were fused to the flesh."
to the General, the four bodies, approximately 5 feet
in height, were sent to Wright-Patterson AFB where he
had seen them in a deep-freeze morgue, kept at approximately
120 degrees below zero for preservation. The only other
anatomical feature described by General "T"
was that the heads of the aliens were large by human standards.
Facial features were erased by the heat factor.
craft? The General related that scientists assigned to
the task of dismantling it ran into difficulty. To get
inside, they concentrated on an area where a fissure or
crack had resulted, probably from impact. Shipment to
Wright-Patterson, he said, quoting the General, "Was
by rail, using two military conveyance rocket cars, properly
camouflaged and classified as 'rockets'."
another occasion, MS as a guest of the General at his
home, while alone, was shown a Top Secret document concerning
a landed UFO. The incident occurred at Nellis AFB, Nevada,
1968, and MS expressed disbelief when he read the report.
Stamped TOP SECRET, as he recalled, it read, in part:
Large UFO hovered over Nellis AFB for three days. Three
small alien craft were observed separating (or being ejected)
from parent craft. One landed on the air base grounds.
Sent to greet the landed craft was a Colonel with security
detachment properly armed. There was no mention of an
attempt to assault the craft. While waiting for a sign
of intent, a humanoid was observed to disembark from the
craft, which was described as "short and stocky."
Then, a beam of ligt was directed at the Colonel. The
Colonel was instantly paralyzed, according to the report.
Orders then came from the officer next in command for
his detachment to fire, but their weapons jammed. The
UFO was observed to retreat to its parent craft and then
departed. The Colonel was hospitalized. The only recall
by the Colonel, as MS remembers from the report, was that
he could rationalize the event only in terms of mathematics,
as though an attempt at communication had been conducted
in this manner.
made a check on General "T" at Wright-Patterson
AFB. They had no entry of his name as having been stationed
there. However, when MS (and a witness) called the Accounting
and Finance Section at Lowry AFB, Denver, Colorado, to
obtain the General's new address in the area he had planned
to retire, he was refused on grounds of the Privacy Act.
But, the General's name was on record. To authenticate
the General's report on the Nellis AFB incident, I checked
with an Intelligence source and obtained confirmation.
August of 1978, MS tried several times through other military
friends to make personal contact with the General, but
to no avail. On September 28, 1978, to check on a detail
about MS's personal life, I called his employer and talked
with the comptroller, the person who arranged our contact
initially, and learned to my surprise that my informant
had suddenly left his job three weeks before. The Comptroller
said that MS had a service-related back disability and
had gone to Wright-Patterson AFB for corrective surgery.
MS has since become unreachable, having left no new home
address or phone number.
