This is a painstakingly researched book. Since 1973, Robert Hasting's has interviewed over 80 ex-USAF personnel.
His father worked at Malmstrom AFB and they young Robert took one of his first jobs as a janitor in the bases Air Traffic control tower. One night, one the the staff, showed him five UFO returns on the radar from then on he became hooked.
What he builds up from his research is truly amazing picture. Three types of aerial craft have persistently showed themselves to be interested in US Nuclear Air Bases, Nuclear processing plants, missile test ranges and virtually every military asset connected with nuclear weapons.
The witness testimony is backed up with references to FBI and other released US government documents. Robert Hastings has been very carefully not to damage the reputations of current USAF employees and only interviewed retired personnel. His integrity and persistence have paid off with a dazzling amount of witness testimony.
The physicological tests that nuclear base personnel means that these witnesses are of the very highest caliber.
In my opinion this is another stake in the coffin of UFO secrecy.
I have no doubt this book will become one of the best known resources of reliable witness testimony in field.
The author's interest in this subject was first kindled in March 1967 when as a teenager from an Air Force family, he had an after-school cleaning job in the control tower at Malmstrom AFB in Montana where his father was stationed. One evening he was shown "unknown" targets on the radar screen (i.e. UFOs) above the nuclear missile base, and told that fighters had been scrambled to intercept. Later he was told that the intruders had outperformed the USAF jets and flown away.
When Hastings went on the US college circuit in 1981 to lecture about the government cover-up of the UFO phenomenon, he discovered many former military personnel were attending the talks. Some would approach him after the lecture, reveal details of their UFO encounters whilst in the military and agree to a confidential interview. He has also been contacted by former Air Force Missileers via their Association and, gradually, built up a reputation for thoroughness, professionalism and discretion which has led many former military witnesses to trust telling their stories on the record. Interestingly, the Inspector General's Office confirms not one "broken security" event relating to UFOs revealed by former service personnel has ever been prosecuted, so Hastings sticks with witnesses retired from the military (mainly from the Air Force) and avoids compromising current serving personnel for whom the consequences might be more serious.
The book documents more than 200 such interactions supported by hundreds of ex-military witnesses and FOIA-released documents.Read more ›
What I particularly like was the author's ability to speculate as to the whys and wherefores of ET's interest in us and our questionable propensity to build weapons capable of wiping ourselves (and a great many other species) off the face of this planet.
I found it a particulary cogent, trenchant & fascinating read. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the UFO phenomena.
