'Everyone knew weird things going on,' U.S. military officer
New sighting testimony describes a hovering UFO shining a beam of light down onto a nuclear missile silo at Ellsworth Air Force Base, according to information released October 3, 2011, from UFO-Nuke researcher Robert Hastings.
Hastings interviewed retired U.S. Air Force Major Gaylan W. King, who was a Minuteman Launch Officer with the 66th Strategic Missile Squadron at South Dakota's Ellsworth Air Force Base when the incident occurred in 1966 or 1967.
UFO-Nukes expert Robert Hastings works with another former military officer to reveal how UFOs were common knowledge and that special units were brought in to handle these cases.
King infers that knowledge of UFO activity was common among military personnel and that when this particular incident occurred, that a special unit - "probably working for the CIA or NSA" - stepped in for several weeks to investigate.
And hushing it all up was common as well.
"As soon as they showed up, everything began to clamp down," King said.
Ellsworth Air Force Base is located 10 miles northeast of Rapid City, SD.
Hastings specializes in declassified U.S. government documents and the testimony of former and retired military personnel who have come forward and confirmed "the reality of intermittent UFO activity at American nuclear missile sites over the years." Six veterans stood by Hastings and spoke on September 27, 2010, during a UFOs and Nukes press conference in Washington D.C.
King's new interview is one of many disclosures found in Hastings' ongoing UFO-Nukes research and is well documented in Hastings' book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, available at ufohastings.com.
