An article written 1957, entitled ” Strange lights over Grenada” written by
Aime’ Michel describes just such an account:
At 10:35 p.m. on September the 4th, 1957 Cpt Ferreira ordered his
wing to abandon a planned exercise and execute a 50 degree turn to port.
Ferreira was attempting to get a closer look at what he described as brilliant,
pulsating light hanging low over the horizon. When the turn was completed he
noticed that the object had turned too. It was still directly over his left.
For another 10 minutes, it followed the jets without changing direction or
large red object and took up a formation on either side of it. All at once the
large luminous disc shot vertically upward while the smaller discs shot
straight towards the F-84s. In an instant the flat disc sped overhead in a
hazy blur and vanished. When Cpt Ferriera was questioned by Portuguese Air
Force Investigators he was quoted as saying: “Please don’t come out with
weather balloons, or freak atmospheric conditions. What we saw up there was

The crash at Roswell was witnessed from afar by over a hundred people. Until
just recently, no one who was involved in the recovery operation was talking,
to declassify much of its UFO related material. Perhaps more startling are
than the government documents are the accounts given by local police and
members of the recovery team. According to one unnamed witness, a member of
the Roswell recovery team:
The crash site was littered with pieces of aircraft. Something
about the size of a fighter plane had crashed, the metal was
unlike anything I’d ever seen before. I picked up a piece the
size of a car fender with one hand, it couldn’t have more than
a quarter of a pound and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t
even get it to bend. (10)
In my opinion the most fascinating piece of evidence to come out of the
and pieces of spaceship recovered at Roswell. There is an Air Force video
account of an autopsy being performed on a life form that doesn’t share the
common characteristics of organ development found in life forms on this planet.
The film is silent and labeled “Autopsy, Roswell, July 1947″ (Randal 17).
