They concluded that; "the pilot probably suffered from vertigo and crashed into the lake."
This statement was nothing more than a guess, and based on pure theory.
There were reports, albeit unsubstantiated, that Moncla suffered from vertigo. This question was never resolved. The Air Force made several attempts to explain away the UFO theory.
First, they claimed that the object was a Canadian DC-3.
Secondly, they stated that the unknown object was a RCAF jet.
Canadian officials denied both of these claims. There was no Canadian aircraft in the lake's airspace at the time of the sighting of the UFO.
In a last ditch effort to explain away the UFO, the Air Force claimed that the Scorpion had exploded at high altitude.
㰀瀀㸀 This claim also made no sense, because if the Scorpion had exploded there would have been some of the plane's debris found.
Search teams had found no oil slick, metal fragments, absolutely nothing to indicate a crash had occurred. The case was investigated by NICAP, which found that official records had deleted any mention of Moncla's chase.
His plane was listed as being in an "accident." Unofficially, radar operators and others present in the radar room believed that the loss of the Scorpion, Moncla, and Wilson was directly related to the unknown object.
The identity of the UFO has never been disclosed officially to this day, and the loss of the Scorpion is still unexplained.㰀瀀㸀 B J Booth㰀瀀㸀 㰀⼀琀爀㸀 㰀瀀㸀 猀漀甀爀挀攀㨀 眀眀眀⸀渀椀挀愀瀀⸀漀爀最㰀瀀㸀 刀攀琀甀爀渀 琀漀㨀 UFO Case files㰀瀀㸀 UFO Casebook Home㰀⼀䈀伀䐀夀㸀
