Go Back Report # 95


Chapter Title: “Mystics, Venusians and Hoaxes”     

       Curious incidents have been reported, both in the United States and in the North Pacific, between 1950 and 1953. These may import that some flying saucers which have no human or humanoid or any kind of entity aboard may have been engaged in some kind of exploration or reconnaissance. For example:

       Was a satellite disc—a flying saucer with no entities on board, and possibly controlled from some unseen space-ship—rammed and sunk by a specially equipped American plane in late April or May 1953?      

       It looks like it, and the affair occurred in the waters of the North Pacific off Tinian, one of the Marianas Islands formerly mandated to Japan. On this island, it may be noted, are mysterious ruins of colossal, columned tombs which may be the monuments of one of the colonies of the lost and very ancient Pacific continent of Mu.

       "In the last weeks (late April 1953), our ships and aircraft have sighted numerous flying objects of unknown origin. Their flight courses were plotted and permit conclusions about their take-off and landing bases. Near the island of Tinian, one of these projectiles was rammed by a specially equipped airplane and sunk in the sea." (Report of the Chief of the U.S. Defense HQ., D., Tokyo, May 9, 1953.)

       Tinian has an up-to-date military airfield from which flew the atomic bomb-carrier planes sent against Japan in 1945. Although a passage in the above report might seem to imply that these objects were terrestrial in origin, it seems pretty clear that the American authorities were forced to conclude that they were, in fact, a type of flying saucer.

                           where the 25th came from in an e-mail to me: “I came up with the 25th as

                           an approximate date; nobody else indicated that.   I have to put in SOME

                           numerical date for chronological sorting purposes and that was my best

                           guess given ‘late April.’”-CF-
