On 24 June, 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold observed nine elliptical objects flying over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. He described their movement as “like a saucer skipping on water” and said the objects appeared to be convex and thin in cross section, like a “disc” or “pie pan.” From his description, the press quickly coined the terms “flying saucer” and “flying disc,” marking the start of the first major UFO wave of the modern era. Arnold’s sighting was quickly followed by many others, driving public interest to fever pitch. In the ensuing decades, literally thousands of UFO sightings have been reported.
UFO sightings play a vitally important role in UFO crash retrievals. In Majic Eyes Only, Ryan Wood provides the reader with important eyewitness testimony concerning UFO sightings made during the same timeframes, and in the same precise locations, as a whole host of UFO crashes. In other words, as Wood repeatedly demonstrates, independent corroboration of many UFO crash events can be found in sightings that were made just before the crashes occurred.
For example, as revealed in Majic Eyes Only, on the morning of 13 April, 1964, numerous people in the town of Walthamstow, England sighted a silver object, described as being “nine feet long and cigar-shaped,” that crashed into a nearby river. Police and Ministry of Defense officials quickly dismissed the case, first opining that witnesses had observed “four ducks flying in formation,” then claiming that a search of the river had proved fruitless. This hardly satisfied those who had actually seen the UFO prior to the crash.
Similarly, Wood’s book recounts a UFO crash that occurred on Taire Mountain in Bolivia on 15 May, 1978, about which the CIA stated: “Around that time some people in San Luis and Mendoza provinces reported seeing a flying saucer squadron flying in formation.” The U.S. State Department noted on the same day: “The general region has had more than its share of reports of UFOs this past week.”
In short, UFO sightings undoubtedly provide important corroborative evidence when reported in proximity to a UFO crash event.
