This week I talked with an old UFO investigating and writing partner, Robert Charles Cornett, sometimes known as RC Squared. We talked about our research trip to Maxwell Air Force Base in the mid-1970s after we had learned that the Project Blue Book files were there and open for public scrutiny. We might have been the first UFO researchers to look through the files at Maxwell, which eventually were sent on to the National Archives and were then heavily redacted before the public was again allowed to view them. You can listen to the discussion here:
One of the cases we talked about was the Kinross disappearance of 1953. I mentioned that I had talked with an Air Force officer who had been there at the time. He told me that there had been two schools of thought. One was that the fighter had crashed into the lake and the other was that “it” took the plane. It being the UFO. The plane has never been found.
We also talked about our investigations into cattle mutilations in that same time frame. I did mention some of the things that I had learned in the last decade or so about some of those mutilations including my discussion with Jefferson Davis in Wisconsin. You can read some of my thoughts about cattle mutilations here:
For those interested in those sorts of things, we did talk, briefly, about writing, and editors and that sort of behind the scenes thing. There wasn’t much about it, but just a bit of an aside look into how publishing operated thirty years ago.
Next week, I’ll interview John Greenewald about all the ins and outs of the To the Stars Academy, Lue Elizondo, and the metametal they’re all excited about. If you have questions, put them in the comments section and I’ll try to get answers during the program.
