If we trust pilots to carry us through the air safely, and to guard our nation’s skies, then why can’t we trust what they tell us about their encounters with unidentified flying objects?
That’s the question posed by investigative journalist Leslie Kean in her new book, “UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record.” It’s a compelling question — but is it a good argument for the existence of something truly unexplainable?
The book’s main themes are the extraordinary stories of strange aerial encounters in Europe, South America and even the United States. In these stories, investigators have failed to pinpoint phenomena to explain the sightings. And because the primary witnesses are pilots, the accounts are considered more credible than run-of-the-mill UFO reports. But are they really?
Kean asserts that pilots are the best describers of aerial phenomena. “They represent the world’s best-trained observers of everything that flies,” she writes. “What better source for data on UFOs is there?… [They] are among the least likely of any group of witnesses to fabricate or exaggerate reports of strange sightings.”
This may sound like a plausible assumption, but others who have studied the raw evidence disagree. Experienced UFO investigators realize that pilots, who instinctively and quite properly interpret visual phenomena in the most hazardous terms, are not dispassionate observers. For pilots, a split-second diagnosis can be a matter of life or death — and so they’re inclined to overestimate the potential threats posed by what they see.

Over the decades, there have been a number of UFO witnesses who have described having terrifying–and even sickening–experiences after UFO encounters.
These didn’t involve little green men attacking or experimenting on them, or even harassment by Men in Black, but instead dealt with odd symptomatic conditions that appeared to result from radiation poisoning, specifically for those who managed to be get particularly close to hovering or landed UFO craft.
During a recent conversation I shared with a friend of mine named Wes Owsley, we were discussing an interview he had conducted with physicist Stanton Friedman a while back. Friedman, with a background in nuclear physics that resulted in a Bachelors Degree and Master of Science from the University of Chicago, had worked for programs overseen by companies such as defense contractor McDonnell Douglas early in his career, at which time highly advanced, classified programs involving nuclear aircraft, rockets, and nuclear fuel sources for use in outer space were being undertaken. According to Owsley, Friedman indicated that, to his knowledge, the projects involving nuclear craft had been discontinued; but was this really the case?
Several incidents bring to mind the notion that, indeed, the U.S. Government may have continued working on advanced aircraft that drew flight power from nuclear sources. Sadly, the best evidence to support these claims exists in the injuries and ailments sustained by civilians who came into close proximity to these craft. One widely reported incident occurred in December 1980, when two women, Betty Cash and Vicky Landrum, along with Landrum’s seven-year-old grandson, witnessed a large diamond-shaped UFO hovering over the highway as they traveled home from dinner. As they approached the object, Betty stopped the car, and got out of the vehicle to observe the craft, which hovered over the highway in front of her, producing tremendous heat before leaving the area. As it disappeared, the witnesses say more than twenty military helicopters then appeared.

We have all heard the idea that UFO crafts may be both machine and living creations. I have heard theories that talk about the crafts we see in our skies being not only alien made but of living material. The theory is that UFO’s may be a combination of machine or part machine and part organic. Others think some forms of alien crafts are 100% living creatures .
The idea becomes more realistic to me as I watch our own advances in science cross over to applying man made parts into our own organic bodies. We long ago passed over into the world of fake body parts. Hip replacements, knee replacements, pace makers, even breast enhancements are all man made parts inter graded into our human bodies.
We have been manipulating our food source with engineered food grown from genetically altered seeds which is on the rise and looks to be our future. We talk about genetically engineered humans or designer babies. It is obvious we are on a rapid path to becoming a species of humans inter graded with machines.
Time will tell us how far we take this hybrid road in the future. We have choices of course to use these advances for the good of humanity or to use them to wipe out humanity to something else- something more cold and steal rather than warm and human. I fear this outcome but realize that the human race does not always take the right course of action and understand almost anything is possible as far as our future is concerned.
Knowing we are on this road of human , machine technology combination I understand societies far more advanced than we are may also have crossed this path long before us. With that said I do not find it unreasonable to believe the creatures that visit us may be combination’s of living material and intelligently designed machine. Those who are far more advanced than we are may have found a way to send living machinery out to do the investigating of the universe.
