The Mutual UFO Network announcement previously described by International Director David MacDonald as “blockbuster” was released Sunday afternoon.
Sources inform “Orlando Paranormal Examiner” that researcher Harry Drew took the podium in Covington, Ky., explaining he is convinced he has located two sites where alien craft landed or crashed in 1953. The sites are in the vicinity of Kingman, Ariz. Drew explained he believes the craft were brought down by triangulated radar running at boosted power to extend range.
According to Drew, military personnel quickly retrieved and cleaned up the wreckage. The archaeologist and historian apparently included photos of the sites in his presentation, as well as presented information contradicting past accounts of the case and alleged crashes.
This is a departure and a contradiction of information that was originally presented by Raymond Fowler who first broke the details in 1973. Fowler claimed that his information was from Fritz Werner who was later identified to be Arthur Stansel.
Stansel was employed by the Air Material command at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. He had graduated from the University of Ohio in 1949 with a mechanical engineering degree and later tested aircraft engines for the Air force.
Stansel said that he had been involved in a top-secret, preliminary survey of a wrecked UFO somewhere in the desert around Kingman. Stansel’s credentials seemed good and there was limited documentation, but nothing solid. Stansel had been caught telling several versions of the same story and claimed that when he had been drinking he tended to embellish stories. His credibility came into question as a result of his tales.
Dr. Eric Wang, who was suspected of leading a reverse engineering team on alien craft, headed the Installations Division within the Office of Special Studies where Stensel worked. Stansel signed a legal affidavit vouching to the honesty of his testimony, which was released by Ray Fowler in UFO Magazine, April 1976.
MUFON’s first blockbuster announcement of the weekend was that they had been donated sixty volumes of meticulously kept paper of Ufologist and crash research Leonard Stringfields. So the Drew information and the Stringfield papers seem to go hand in hand.
It should be noted that several UFO investigators at the time of that Fowler made this information public considered it a hoax, this would not have been that unusual at the time the government was releasing much in the way of confusing and intentional misinformation about most credible UFO sightings and cases.
Also, researcher Harry Drew is going to have to come forward with some additional credible information if this case is going to be considered a landmark UFO case.
Further data will simply be required in order to more fully grasp the specific details of not only what took place in 1953 in Kingman, but in 2012 in Covington. Don’t shoot me, I’m just the piano player.
