Excerpt taken from THE UFO CRASH/RETRIEVAL SYNDROME
Status Report II: New Sources, New Data
By Leonard H. Stringfield

Item B-5

William D. Leet of Texarkana, Arkansas, long-time respected researcher, former Major, Air Force Pilot, WW II and Korea, and co-author of To Rule The Sky, knowing of my UFO crash/retrieval research, reached me by letter in December 1978 to relate that he had a lead from Mr. Lynn Ward, which concerned a relative who had seen a captured flying saucer in a Navy hangar in 1950. The witness was Durward "Buddy" Haak, CPO Radar Observer, while stationed at a Naval Air Station in Sunnyvale, California. In 1952, Buddy Haak was on an ill-fated flight out of San Diego. His aircraft disappeared; no trace of it ever found.

Buddy Haak, according to testimony received from members of his family, had accidentally entered a door of a large hangar, temporarily unguarded, and saw a huge, round saucer-shaped craft with a row of windows. A guard shut the door in his face and ordered him to forget what he had seen, or else. By June 1979, through the efforts of Bill Leet, I had received written statements from two members of the family who recalled the story, and managed to get the phone number of Durward Haak's mother. On June 25, 1979, I called Mrs. Haak, who, requesting that her full name and address be withheld, recalled her son's concern about seeing the flying saucer. "It was certainly no aircraft of ours," she remembers him saying. Although other members of the family connect Buddy's strange disappearance with his knowledge of the UFO, Mrs. Haak did not.
