I am a film producer who is a product of the 1950s;
the Saucer Scares, the Cold War, and the beginning of the U.S. Government's
official denial of ET visitation of Planet Earth.
I guess I have always
thought our world was being visited by intelligent beings from elsewhere.
When I had a UFO sighting in 1961 and was ridiculed for trying to discuss
it, I became determined to probe and study the UFO issue for as long as
it took to discover the truth.
As a logical outcome of that long-term goal, I spent
years researching and collating data in preparation of the production of
a major film documentary on the UFO/ET issue. I finally got to the point
of starting production in 1992.
However, so strong is our programmed cultural
and political denial of ET visitation that even members of my own staff
treated me as an object of derision.
This only made me more determined
than ever to solve the UFO enigma, and I then began going straight to the
very institutions which were withholding the truth from us: our own Military
and Space agencies.
My goal was to somehow obtain legitimate hard data
from them that would be virtually impossible to debunk.
Back on the night of October 7, 1965, an event of
historic proportions, a true landmark in UFO history, took place - the
actual incursion over Edwards Air Force Base in the Palmdale/Lancaster
area of California's Mojave Desert of a number of extraterrestrial craft.
If this astonishing event is now, finally, gaining any measurable attention,
it is a direct result of my efforts. I make that statement in all humility... it
is simply the truth.
In fact, this unprecedented event is not to be found
in any of the major UFO books, and with the exception of a few UFO magazines
reviewing my work, and interviews done with me on various programs,
this event still remains virtually unknown.
What makes this historic intrusion and visit so important
is that the US Air Force thoroughly documented it and even gave it a code
name: "The Incident."
During that fall night in 1965, it seems that 12
luminous UFOs came right down low and just over a secure military runway.
These craft were all sighted visually by Air Force personnel and by several
types of radar.
Further, the Air Force scrambled several jet fighters after
them and during the event the possible use of nuclear weapons even became
The entire incident was additionally documented with written
reports, radar photos, and AUDIO TAPES made by Air Force personnel while
they were actually SEEING the objects, FLYING AFTER the objects, and considering
taking SERIOUS MILITARY ACTION against what they might imply as a threat.
From my calculations at least 40 hours of recordings
were made (a five hour event recording from at least 8 locations).
only six hours of tapes were de-classified many years ago as a mass of
noise and unclear voices, which truly defied interpretation.
They had SCRAMBLED
the tapes into what they felt was a hopeless jumble of random pieces of
conversation utterly out of sequence and logical progression.
When I realized
what had been done, it presented a challenge which made me determined to
find out what was hidden within that chaotic mass of sound.
After many months and countless hours of laborious
research, cataloging, and editing the snips and pieces of the audio tape,
I was able to organize the sound so the conversations could be understood.
I had successfully restored the tapes to their original and correct sequencing.
I then added carefully researched narration, which explained what was taking
place, so that the listener would clearly understand the unfolding event.
As narrator, I sought out Jackson Beck, the true
dean of radio announcers and films commentators - the voice of the Paramount
Newsreel, countless original Military films, and even the original narrator
of the Superman radio program.
Mr. Beck is now heard on many important
new national radio and TV commercials. His voice is known to millions,
even if his name is not.
I felt he would add credibility to the narration
of this astonishing historical event.
In fact, he told me that he has made
a life long study of the UFO field and has had several important sightings
The resulting reconstructed tapes are now ironclad

of major Government Agencies and have received NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS!
a single Official Agency has tried to debunk or discredit the event, or
my presentation of the tapes.
Furthermore, The CSETI organization has used my tape
presentation in meetings with members of Congress with the aim of having
our government tell the public the truth of ET involvement on the Earth.
TSgt Charles Sorrels, heard prominently on the original Edwards recordings
of October 7, 1965, and in newly-produced segments confirming the event,
made the presentation in Washington which featured my documentary version
of the Edwards Tapes.
And yes, the plane spotters at Edwards KNEW that
UFOs or UFOBs, as they called them then, were not our "black" projects,
Soviet bombers, or any known aircraft - they were unknown, fabulously high-tech
craft with capabilities beyond any known technology.
And... as they said
on the old Superman series: "far beyond that of Mortal Man!"
