In 1948, War World II 'Flying Ace' Thomas Mantell, winner of the Distinguished Flying Cross and member of the Kentucky Air National Guard is believed to be the first person to die while chasing a UFO. Observers in Mantell airbase control tower saw what they believed to be a UFo and sent pilots to chase the UFO. Mantell's plane was the closest and he followed the object upto 25,000 feet before stalling and crashing. National headlines the next day speculated that Mantell's plane had been shot down by "magnetic rays." http://ufodigest.com/article/thomas-mantell-1004
