Witness Observes 'Phantom' Airliner

I recently received the following email, referencing an account the witness had read in one of my books:

Dear Mr. Strickler,

I just read about a man who saw a phantom airplane in your book Phantoms & Monsters: Bizarre Encounters I, too, have seen a phantom plane. This is what happened.

The sighting occurred some time in the spring or summer of 2003, 2004, or 2005. I had just retired on Dec. 31, 2002 and early in 2003. I became a volunteer with the Leon County, FL Red Cross. The agency had just received a federal/state grant to test the preparedness of surrounding counties for any terrorist attacks. The Red Cross personnel and the volunteers (a total of 10 to 20 people each time) would ride in a rented Greyhound bus to whatever county we were testing. We would leave Leon County about 8 am.

This particular morning we were headed east along I-10. I was sitting alone slightly back of the middle of the bus on the right (southern) side by the window. I wasn’t reading or listening to anything, nor talking with anyone. Somewhere in eastern Jefferson County or western Madison County, I noticed an airplane overtaking the bus from behind on my side. It was a big jet airliner. I don’t recall any markings on it however. As I watched, the plane slowly was descending as if it were landing. There are NO airports in that location that could handle a plane that size. The plane was behind trees, but there was no underbrush and I could see the plane clearly. I was expecting it to crash. By then the bus was past the plane. I looked back and saw nothing to indicate a crash nor did I hear anything and that plane was close enough to hear an explosion if it had happened. I looked at the other people and no one seemed to have seen anything as they were reading, talking with each other or otherwise occupied. I told no one on the bus what I’d seen. That night I did tell my husband about it and watched the news to see if a plane did crash in that area. My husband had little to anything to say. I guess he didn’t want to offend me by saying he thought I was hallucinating.

Thank you for reading this. JC

I believe this is the account the witness was referring to:

Vanishing Airliner

Regarding the missing Flight 370, I have a story that I’ve never told anyone before because quite frankly, I couldn’t believe my eyes and it left me thinking I’d gone momentarily nuts. However, I’m quite intuitive and so I’m very familiar with that odd sensation, going back some fifty years as a child. I’ve gotten so used to it, very little freaks me out anymore.

Anyway, I was working in the Raleigh/Durham North Carolina area, and I went out back of the building to take a break like I usually do around 4 PM, facing North under a partly cloudy sky. The exact date escapes me but I distinctly remember that it was either the day before or the exact date of the start of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, so it was around August 27, 2012.

So, I’m looking up at the sky at an approximate 45° angle when I noticed a brownish colored airliner with two engines on both wings (I could clearly see that level of detail against a blue sky) at a normal cruising altitude, approaching from NNE to SSW. It was on a path that I was guessing could have potentially been from the New York area towards Western Florida, and I jokingly told myself (a psychic impression?) that it was on its way to the RNC. Anyway, it was approaching a smallish elongated cloud, kind of cigar-shaped and parallel to the horizon (not a chemtrail), about the width of a finger or two when held up at arms length. So, I thought it would be cool to watch it as it either flew through this small cloud or over it, which should have only taken a few seconds, and it never came out!

I mean, I scanned that area of the sky for a solid five minutes and all around that cloud, I never saw that airliner again. There was no mention of any missing plane on the news that night, so I buried what I saw - or what I really thought I’d seen - until this past week. And, I’m now intuiting that someone (or some “thing”) has done humanity a great service in both cases, by abducting an entire airliner (full of who-knows-who or what?) both times. Or..I’d rather not entertain the thought of the opposite.

Call me nuts, I simply don’t care - P

NOTE: I can recall at least one other incident reported to me several years ago, where the witness thought they observed an airliner landing on a freeway near LAX. One can't help but think about the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, and other aircraft & ships reported missing in 'hot zones', ex. The Bermuda Triangle. Is this an example of a time slip or possible convergence with an alternate reality? Welcome to the multiverse...Lon

Daily 2 Cents: 'Do Not Look At Me!' -- Black Panthers Reports in Texas -- Media's Reasons For Ignoring UFOs

'Do Not Look At Me!'

Gloria from Alberta, Canada called in to tell of a weird alien encounter she had.

“I had a strange experience with an ET. I woke up at dawn and I'm sitting wide awake on my bed and on my left is a long grey arm with a hand dangling with very pointy, pointy nails. And I looked the other way and thought, Oh, no! And I looked back and it brought it's hand up and the palm was quite pink actually with long nails. Then it was down to business. It took my left pointer finger into a little saucer and in this saucer were little black specks like horse fly pepper and they went into my finger in an orderly manner. Then when that was finished, it said to me, in my head: Do NOT look at me! Then it was my right finger that went in the saucer and then the same thing happened. And when that was finished, it was gone but I know it's been back because it leaves trademarks. I've had scratches on my left palm and on the top of one, it left a scar and it bled on my covers. And the next time, it's on my finger. The scars are there from the sharp pointy nails. I wonder if there's anyone else who's had an experience like that. And I was already 75 years old. I was not young so this is more of a mystery to me. The next day it was very scary for me but at the time I was not afraid.”

Ancient Armadillo Found

Jose Antonio Nievas stumbled upon something amazing. He found a weird, giant rock resting in a creek on his property near the city of Carlos Spegazzini in Argentina. It was huge, almost perfectly round, and nearly a meter in diameter, leading Jose to believe this was a dinosaur egg.

Experts around the country identified the object as the shell of a glyptodon through video and photos. A glyptodon is an ancient South American cousin of the armadillo from the Pleistocene epoch. These guys were the size and weight of a Volkswagen Beetle, but a damn sight tougher. These behemoths are believed to have been hunted to extinction by humans nearly 10,000 years ago.

According to Agence France-Presse, paleontologist Laura Cruz remarked "the shell is impressive because it is complete". From the photo, one can see it's not that complete anymore, as it started cracking once exposed to the elements. - Awesome Ancient Armadillo Amazes Argentina


Fresh Reports of Black Panthers in Texas

I have been on something of a hiatus over the last couple of months. There are a lot of reasons for this but have found myself in a slightly better position as far as actually having time to write of late and am itching to get back to it. Please understand, my lack of activity of late does not signal a lack of interest on my part. Now, having said all of that, let’s get to it.

Reports of anomalous black cats, large in size with long tails, continue to pour in to me via email, comments to posts, Twitter and Facebook. I need to catch all of you up on these reports and thought I would work backwards to do so. What I mean by that is that I will be presenting the latest reports to you first and, over the next several weeks, get you caught up on the backlog.

Before we begin, let me repeat a few things that I have said before. I know that there is no such animal as a “black panther.” The known big cats that have been given this moniker are either African leopards or New World jaguars exhibiting melanism. So, when I use the term “black panther,” realize it is a colloquialism, a catchall phrase, if you will, that is commonly used in Texas and the Deep South to describe any large, black or very dark, long-tailed cat.

Why the mainstream media refuse to acknowledge UFOs

There’s no subject more ignored, shunned and discounted by the mainstream media than that of UFOs.
It’s absolutely true (this refusal to report, that is) and for the life of me, I can’t understand why. The implications of the ostensibly deliberate disinterest are unfathomable not to mention those of a government cover-up. In fact, the prominent ufologist Stanton Friedman calls it in effect the Watergate of the millennium.

The subject of flying saucers represents a kind of Cosmic Watergate, meaning that some few people in major governments have known since July, 1947, when two crashed saucers and several alien bodies were recovered in New Mexico, that indeed SOME UFOs are ET. As noted in 1950, it’s the most classified U.S. topic.

And note, he unabashedly calls them flying saucers and not UFOs. How can this subject, the subject, the existence of extraterrestrial beings, especially now as the latest iteration of Star Wars breaks all box office records, be of no interest to the media? And moreover, as newsrooms are shuttered, as news resources are pared and slashed, as the current crop of journalistas are desperately shaking the bushes for something, anything, to report on or cover, how can the most fascinating subject that has captivated humans since time immemorial not be leapt upon with the usual ferocity? A cursory review of the Internet reveals numerous countries along with the Vatican openly acknowledging the existence of UFO files and investigations. Do you mean to suggest there exist no enterprising media types who are unwilling to vouchsafe the fact of the investigations themselves without verifying or acknowledging the existence of alien life and interstellar adventure?

Bizarre Entity Encountered While Deer Hunting

My friend and colleague Albert Rosales forwarded a MUFON CMS report from Dec. 2014. This entity is somewhat similar to another report I received this past year, also from Pennsylvania:

Mansfield, PA - 12-14-2014 - 2:30PM

I was deer hunting, seated on my stand at ground level, facing generally North. This field is 20 acres tractor mowed. I was near the upper middle near a large rock and cherry tree. This entity was first seen with naked eyes. Thought it might be light and leaves playing tricks on my sight. (The oak and beech brush still had their leaves.) Sometimes this can happen when you are out all day in 18F temps. I then observed it with 10x50 binoculars, it was still there. I noted that the area was very quiet no birds or other normal outside sounds. My observation lasted about 6 minutes. I carry a field notebook as we are very active birders. I sketched what I saw and noted colors, and size. No snow, little wind, 18 degrees F. The entity appeared very solid and I observed no movable joints. It never moved. The legs looked like stovepipe 6 inches diameter. The arms were the same, terminated in rounded ends, no digits, ends were even with crotch. The body was also round about 14 inches in diameter. The head looked like a round bottom bucket turned upside down, about as tall as the body was wide 14 inches. In the area where the eyes would be was a black shinny area 3 inches wide and stretching across the front. Overall height was over 9 feet. It was standing in weeds and goldenrod I could not see the feet. I never saw it arrive and it departed while I was scanning for deer. If it had stayed there I would have tried to approach it, I had no fear and lots of questions. I would like to know if other folks have observed similar entities, and where?

NOTE: This is another example of a humanoid entity that appears to be mechanical in some respects. What do you think? Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Aliens Floating Down From Glowing Ship -- 'Frogman' in the Closet -- Death by Condoms

Aliens Floating Down From Glowing Ship

Saginaw, MI - 1959-09-01 - 8:00PM: I was 4 years old (1959) My mother had put me to bed. Suddenly my bedroom was filled with a bright light. I got up on my knees to look out the window. There were beings floating down from a glowing ship. They were landing in a field across the road from our home. I couldn't figure out how they were floating down so I assumed they were standing on swings (I was 4 I didn't understand how they were floating). The beings were small and I assumed they were children. I heard a noise and assumed it was my mom so I quickly laid down. The next thing I remember is waking in the morning.

In the morning I quickly dressed and was trying to get out the front door. My mom wanted to know where I thought I was going. I said I was going across the street to play with the children. My mom opened the door and pointed to the empty field and said no children lived out there! (We lived in a very rural area) I explained what had happened that night. My mom laughed and said I was dreaming.

This encounter was never spoken of again. Eventually I had forgotten about the whole thing. I walked into my mom's house in the 80's and my mother was telling her friend how I had witnessed aliens landing from a space ship. I called her into the kitchen and asked why she would tell people about that event. I didn't want people to think I was crazy. My mom said that her friend had seen them too.

I've never told anyone but my mom about this. It's taken me a long time to even admit it happened. I don't know why. I was watching Ancient Aliens one night and your show came on after it and I was thinking "wow! I'm not the only one". - MUFON CMS


'Frogman' in the Closet

Jana Mckenon wrote in to tell of her bizarre encounter with a 'Frogman'. For those not in the know, Darkness Radio receives a large number of bizarre stories involving encounters with Frog-like entities. At first, Dave Schrader, the host, thought it was just some crazy guy telling a story but over the years he has received numerous accounts of frog beings and he no longer dismisses them. Real Ghost Stories Online also receives the occasional frog men stories.

“When I was four my bedroom was moved to the first floor, right by the basement of our house in Annandale, Minnesota because I always sang myself to sleep which was distracting to my brothers and folks. I used singing to calm myself as I was very hyperactive and stressed out child. One night I looked toward my open closet door and saw a huge frog wearing a party hat peering at me. I closed the door each night because the closet scared me. Unlike the fearful stories that others have told, that night the frog did everything to make me laugh and feel comforted because I was so cared to be alone on the first floor. It did tricks and made funny faces, which made me laugh and laugh. It was such a comfort. The next morning my parents expressed their deep disapproval about the laughter and told me I had an over-active imagination. When I told them about the frog in my closet, I got in trouble again but the feeling of joy never left me and I'm now around your age Dave.”

Death by Condoms

The 29-year-old from Münster was hit by a steel shard from the condom dispenser which was positioned on a quiet street, local police disclosed on Monday.

Along with two friends, aged 27 and 29, the man had attached a homemade explosive device to the machine in an apparent attempt to get at the goods and money inside.

But he was unable to make it to safety in time, with the door of his car still open as the device detonated. The shard of metal then struck him in the head, leaving him unconscious.

His two accomplices took the man to hospital but he died of his wounds shortly afterwards.

At first the men claimed their friend had injured himself after falling down the stairs, before one later admitted to the connection to the exploded machine.

Police confirmed that the men did not take the money or condoms which had been set loose by the explosion. After being alerted by local residents, officers found the contents of the machine scattered on the street in front of it.

The two survivors of the incident were arrested before later being released from custody. - Man dies after condom machine explosion

Ewwww...Corpse Flower

A particularly unusual and foul-smelling flower is known to bloom only once every 1,000 days.

Native only to the rainforests of Sumatra, Amorphophallus titanum is something of a botanical oddity due to its sporadic flowering behavior and its extremely strong smell of rotting flesh.

Known as the 'Corpse Flower', the plant has proven to be a popular attraction at the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden near Adelaide where visitors have been queuing up to see the six-foot plant in bloom - something that occurs only once every three years and lasts only a matter of hours.

One of the staff, Matt Coulter, described the stench as being like that of a "dead animal".

"When I opened the glasshouse this morning it almost blew me away it is so strong," he said.

"I almost had to stop myself from throwing up it was so bad. Until you have actually experienced it, it is the first time I've actually smelt it; it's like nothing else."

One visitor described the smell as "like a rubbish bin" while others thought it smelled like "cooked broccoli that had gone off in the fridge" and even "a smelly bag of rotten fish." - Thousands queue in Australia to smell flesh-odoured corpse flower which blooms every 1000 days

Montana Man Claims Proof UFOs Are Real

A Montana man claims to have positive proof of alien life after capturing images of two UFOs on camera.

Dr. Richard O’Connor’s images of two unidentified flying objects were snapped on Nov. 4 with two powerful motion capture cameras he keeps pointed at the sky.

The five photos show two smooth, cylindrical objects that appear to be moving through the sky at high speed.

“Basically what you see is a very symmetrical, smooth and reflective surface that appears to have his own light source,” O’Connor told Detroit Free Press.

“In my opinion, even a hardened skeptic would say ‘Wow, that is what I expect a UFO would look like.’”

The photos show two smooth, cylindrical objects that appear to be moving through the sky at high speed.

O’Connor estimates his two Reconyx Hyperfire PC 900 Trail cameras have taken more than 280,000 photos since he installed them.

When triggered by motion, the cameras shoot 20 photos at approximately one-second intervals.

Skeptics say the images are fake. But O’Connor, who worked as an anesthesiologist at St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena before retiring, insists he has no knowledge of how to digitally manipulate photos on a computer.

O’Connor, 60, has shared the pictures with the National UFO Reporting Center, who have a website listing UFO sightings by state.

Dr. Richard O'Connor insists he has no knowledge of how to digitally manipulate photos on a computer.

Peter Davenport, the head of the NUFORC, sent the photos to “a skilled photo-analyst” who described the photos as “real, but remain a mystery.”

“I suspect the lights in the first and last photos are sun reflections off of something rather than any propulsion system,” the photo analyst wrote.

But a second analyst disagreed and declared the photos “100 percent fake.”

O’Connor maintains the photos are genuine and said “what you see there is what came off that camera.”

He said his main intention is “to let people know that UFOs are real. These photographs are proof positive that UFOs are real.”

O’Connor, 60, has shared the pictures with the National UFO Reporting Center, who have a website listing UFO sightings by state.

“I am interested in the truth,” he added.

“If I am subject to criticism to get to the bottom of this, then I guess it’s part of the deal.”

O’Connor was friends with renowned UFO believer Jesse Marcel Jr. for more than 25 years and says his friend inspired his belief in UFOs.

Marcel Jr. claimed that when he was 10 years old, his father brought home wreckage from the alleged Roswell crash in New Mexico in July 1947. Video can be found at Montana man claims he has proof that UFOs are real in two photographs captured by powerful cameras
