PAN AM FLIGHT 257 CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH AN ALIEN CRAFT
 
On March 11, 1957 Pan Am Airlines Flight 257 from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico, had a brush with the unknown: at four thirty in the morning, while passengers slept or engaged in quiet conversation with each other, the pilot, Captain Matthew Van Winkle, was forced to make a violent evasive maneuver to avoid a collision with a strange bolide that was heading right toward the airliner. Passengers and flight attendants – except for those who had wisely never unfastened their seatbelts – flew out of their seats and crashed into the bulkheads. According to reports, the pilot had seen an object described as having “a shiny greenish core and an outer ring that reflected the inner glow.” Frantically executing an evasive maneuver, Van Winkle climbed 1500 feet above the object in a matter of seconds. According to San Juan’s El Mundo newspaper, Van Winkle’s initial impression was that he was seeing the burning exhaust gases of a rocket airplane, followed by a glowing light. Pilots from other airlines two to three hundred miles away, flying the same route toward Puerto Rico, reportedly saw the same object. John Walsh, a pilot with TransCaribbean Airways, very much doubted that “he’d seen a meteorite.”

Airplanes had always been a source of curiosity to the unknown objects along the decade, and Captain Van Winkle was hardly an exception. A few months after his experience, a Brazilian pilot would have a similar encounter on the Rio-to-Victoria route: after following the airliner at a distance, a round object emitting light from its upper and lower sections entered a cloud formation, enabling the plane’s passengers and crew to make out “illuminated portholes or windows” on the object’s structure. When the intruder exited the cloud, it no longer showed any lights, vanishing in the general vicinity of Guaraparí.

The summer of ’57 would bring more UFO activity to the Caribbean Basin and beyond. On June 4th at around seven o’clock in the morning, a tremendous luminous object crossed the skies over Venezuela, flying over the Sierra de Coro before the eyes of many witnesses as the local airport. An hour later, a deafening explosion caused by a luminous, Sun-sized orb shook the ground near Arapuey, promOn March 11, 1957 Pan Am Airlines Flight 257 from New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico, had a brush with the unknown: at four thirty in the morning, while passengers slept or engaged in quiet conversation with each other, the pilot, Captain Matthew Van Winkle, was forced to make a violent evasive maneuver to avoid a collision with a strange bolide that was heading right toward the airliner.

SPHERICAL UFO CRAFT SPOTTED OVER MEDFORD NEW JERSEY

SPHERICAL UFO CRAFT SPOTTED OVER MEDFORD NEW JERSEY

 MARCH 11, 2015   ……..    MEDFORD LAKES NEW JERSEY

I was  inside by bay window speaking.  It was bright enough for us to notice appearing from nothingness.   It was too bright to be a star and stationary canceling out a plane or satellite.  Binoculars were grabbed immediately and I tried my best to take note, about ten minutes it began heading NW by W. It was  clearly spherical, lights on the craft seemed attached to it on multiple layers or close enough distance. White lights were stationed on its horizon giving clear indication of its rotation.  Multiple color lights were molding onto different areas spinning around the object and changing colors.  It was stationary at first then began a straight path NW by W continuing the previous actions I described at a continuous altitude and speed until it was too far to keep track of. I ran inside and started this report before losing track of it.  I was immediately curious until multiple dogs began to bark as well as my own and some were noticeably frightened or on an aggressive stance which made me turn cautious yet still inviting as I could possibly be. The object was heading NW by W at a constant speed and altitude until I ran inside to write a report after watching it for 40-45 minutes and lost track of it behind tree line.  NOTE: The above image is a witness rendering.

 

This case is under investigation by Ken Pfeifer Chief Investigator for MUFON New Jersey.

 

KENS NOTE:  This area of South Jersey of covered with lakes both big and small.  Our State Director George Filer has a house on the lake and one rose out of the water right in front of his home.  George lives in Medford New Jersey.  I feel these alien craft are hiding in the lakes and rivers in our state and probably throughout the world.  Since these alien craft must be pressurized, then this would be perfect for hiding in water, just like a submarine would.  Simple as that.
