Complaints Filed with FAA on Stephenville Case by Texas Representative

Stephenville Texas representative to Place 7 Mr. Mark Murphy has filed complaints with the FAA and the DOT (pursuant to 14 CFR 13 on air safety) on behalf of himself, his family, and his constituents as an elected representative regarding the events which took place over Stephenville Texas on the evening of January 8, 2008.

Mr. Murphy requested a reprimand of the USAF for large scale military operations in a populated area without notification of local authorities. City officials are supposed to be notified when such events are going to take place. No such notification was given prior to the F-16s flying over the city.

This is a bold step to force some action which is long over due. The fact that there were F-16s flying in and around the Stephenville area is serious because Stephenville is not within the military operating zone. Long time Stephenville resident and UFO witness Steve Allen said he saw a large UFO pass over head at a high rate of speed followed by a F-16 in pursuit.

All 301st public affairs chief Maj. Karl Lewis said is that 10 F-16s were in the sky that evening flying a training mission. No mention of large UFOs which out-passed F-16s as the multiple witnesses said they saw.

I know Mr. Mark Murphy, and he will let me know of any response he receives from his formal complaint. I will then release the response(s) ASAP to the media.

To all those who have followed the Stephenville Texas UFO incident from the beginning, and to all those who have just started looking into it, we must demand answers and we can't let the USAF get away with telling lies and half truths. This is one of the most important (if not the most important) UFO incident in history.
