JULY 27 1999 …..LAKE BACKSJON SWEDEN
During the afternoon of 27th July 1999, several people witnessed a cigar-shaped object “with wings” scream out of the skies and ultimately crash into waters of Lake Backsjon. Most witnesses agreed the object was approximately 15 feet in length and around 5 feet wide. What’s more, it was evident that water was “thrown into the air” following the craft’s apparent disappearance beneath the waves.
A report would eventually find its way to the local police. However, after conducting interviews with the witnesses they would seemingly wash their hands of the matter.
Several weeks later, though, in late August, an official presence was back on the waters of Lake Backsjon. And this time there were representatives from the military, the security police, and the rescue service from nearby Arvika. Initial searches were on a relatively small scale. The searches were thorough, though. However, the size of the waters and area to cover would quickly dawn on the units.
So much so, that Operation Sea Find was put into action on 13th September. And whether the military knew something that the general public didn’t, there appeared to be a decisive effort to locate something, somewhere in the waters. These suspicions appeared even more credible when the local population was assured that the whole operation was nothing but a training exercise.
Speculation only deepened when several conflicting reasons for the exercise surfaced. For example, one claimed there was a concern the object might be “foreign surveillance equipment”. Another, on the other hand, would claim the exercise was a response to a spate of “robberies of government facilities”. Whether there was any truth to all or any of those statements is perhaps open for debate.
Operation Sea Find – A Genuine Recovery Mission Or Another Cover Story?
Whatever the real reasons for Operation Sea Find, the 14-strong unit utilized high-tech underwater photography equipment, as well as equally high-tech sonar devices. What’s more eight of the unit were specialist divers with substantial experience in their field.
The search would continue for several days. It would then suddenly come to a halt with an announcement that nothing of significance had come to light. Vast regions of the waters remained unsearched. However, the sheer size of the lake would have likely meant an operation in excess of a year.
Once more, much like the reasons for beginning the operation, whether the reasons for bringing it to a close are genuine or not remains an area of concern. At least to some. We should perhaps note, however, that the military themselves would express surprise that they hadn’t managed to recover anything of interest from the waters.
What might they have been expecting to find in the cold, murky lake? Might something actually have been found only to be covered up by those in charge of the search? We should note that such claims are speculative, although, given the subject at hand, perhaps understandable.
Might it be, though, that the military really didn’t find anything as there wasn’t anything to find? Not that the strange craft didn’t enter the water as per the multiple witnesses. But that it did so purposely in order to enter some kind of unknown gateway or tunnel system. One that might take it to another part of the country, or even the world. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
