Of all the military bases in California, UFO activity haunts Edwards Air Force Base more than any other. And what’s more, these sightings would suggest military knowledge, or even involvement, or extraterrestrial activity on Earth.
In fact, sightings over the military facility go back to only days after the Roswell incident on the 7th and 8th July. Over that 24-hour period, “dozens of military officers and pilots” witnessed several flyovers by saucer-shaped craft. In the words of UFO researcher, Michael David Hall, the incident:
…really shook up the Pentagon (and) were the pivotal event which sprung the United States military into serious action on the saucer mystery!
This event, according to Hall, would lead to the US Air Force in privately giving orders to their personnel. That all reports of UFOs should go directly to the Technical Intelligence Division of the Air Material Command.
The sightings, however, would continue, on a semi-regular basis right up until the modern era. And like many other parts of the United States, sightings in the fifties and mid-1960s were rife. And what’s more, these are only the sightings from official reports.
One of the most famous sightings would see several military jets take to the skies in pursuit of multiple UFOs that hovered over the base on the evening of 7th October 1965. This particular sighting involved several high-ranking military personnel, as well as confirmation from multiple radar operators. What’s more, the incident would last for several hours.
It is almost a certainty that other incidents remain in the minds of those who witnessed them. And many more that reside in respective graves of those who died without speaking of their encounters.
Without a doubt what makes the following account from the summer of 1971 truly intriguing is the combination of an abduction event that would result in an apparent UFO crash near to Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The incident took place only eighteen months before one of the most active years for UFO and occupant sightings in the United States in 1973. And given the similarities in descriptions to many of those sightings, it doesn’t take too much of a stretch of the imagination to consider that this encounter was perhaps part of the same overall “program”.
What’s more, like several other military facilities across the United States, Edwards Air Force Base has a long history of UFO sightings and encounters. We have looked before, for example, of the sighting of former astronaut and test-pilot, Gordon Cooper, who claimed to have witnessed a UFO land in broad daylight during rocket launch tests in May 1957.
Of course, we should also perhaps remind ourselves that Edwards Air Force Base was also the location of the alleged 1954 meeting between President Eisenhower and two different extraterrestrial races on two separate occasions.
Furthermore, the result of that meeting, if we accept for a moment that the claims are undoubtedly true, was the commencing of abductions of citizens from various countries around the world by creatures that would become known in the collective public conscious as “the grays”. With that in mind, then, what exactly happened that evening in the early seventies? And what connection does it have to the wider UFO and alien question? NOTE: The above images are CGI.
