Filer's Files #19 Disclosure

Filer's Files #19 -- 2000, MUFON Skywatch Investigations
George A. Filer, Director, Mutual UFO Network Eastern
May 8, 2001, Sponsored by Electronic Arts;
Webmaster Chuck Warren,

UFOs OBSERVED AROUND THE US: Reports of UFOs continue from New
Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida,
Kentucky, Illinois, and California. The Disclsoure Project may
help disclose Star Wars and UFOs and Air Safety.


Washington Times headlines for May 2 stated, "Bush favors
space-based arms for missile defense" A new push for SDI (Stars
Wars) weaponry is now gathering force within the executive
branch. This is in addition to the Anti Ballistic Missile
systems proposals. The US and Russia are now allegedly allies.
The new 'Star Wars' proposals make me wonder who are we
fighting against?

THE CAMPAIGN FOR UFO DISCLOSURE will be broadcast on Wednesday,
May 9, 2001, Live at 9:00 AM Eastern time. Over twenty
military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific
witnesses will come forward at the National Press Club in
Washington, DC to establish the reality of UFOs or
extraterrestrial vehicles, extraterrestrial life forms, and
resulting advanced energy and propulsion technologies. The
weight of this firsthand testimony, along with supporting
government documentation and other evidence, will establish
without any doubt the reality of these phenomena, according to
Dr. Steven M. Greer, director of the Disclosure Project which
is hosting the event.

Among the witnesses attending the event are: John Callahan,
former Division Chief of the Accidents and Investigations
Branch, FAA; Master Sergeant Dan Morris, former US Air Force
and NRO operative with cosmic top secret clearance; Dr. Carol
Rosin, space missile defense consultant and former spokesperson
for Wernher Von Braun; Graham Bethune, retired Navy commander
pilot with a top-secret clearance; Michael Smith, former Air
Traffic Controller, US Air Force; Sergeant Clifford Stone,
United States Army; Lt. Col. Robert Salas, former SAC Launch
Controller, US Air Force and FAA, and myself Major George A.
Filer III, former Air Force Intelligence Officer and flier. We
are asking for Congressional, White House and UN action to
allow witnesses to testify under oath in open hearings. We are
requesting a Presidential Executive Order to protect witnesses
afraid of violating security oaths and to declassify documents
and secret projects for the benefit of all world citizens.
There are reports that CNN may also carry the broadcast if it
is a slow news day.


Journalist Leslie Kean writes that, "In January, Agence France
Presse reported that a Siberian airport was shut for 11/2 hours
while a luminescent unidentified flying object hovered above
its runway." Although it's hard to imagine such an event-taking
place in the industrialized United States, a compelling October
2000 study by a retired aerospace scientist from NASA-Ames
Research Center shows that similar incidents have occurred in
American skies over the last 50 years. "Aviation Safety in
America -- A Previously Neglected Factor" presents more than
100 pilot and crew reports of encounters with unidentified
aerial phenomena (UAP) that appear to have compromised aviation

Author Richard F. Haines, formerly NASA's chief of the Space
Human Factors Office and a Raytheon contract scientist, is
chief scientist for the National Aviation Reporting Center on
Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP), a research organization founded
last year. In stunning detail, pilots and crew describe a range
of geometric forms and lights inconsistent with known aircraft
or natural phenomena. Bizarre objects paced aircraft at
relatively near distances, sometimes disabling cockpit
instruments, interrupting ground communications, or distracting
the crew.

The data include 56 near misses. Impulsive responses by pilots
to an approaching high-speed object can be hazardous; in a few
cases, such violent evasive reactions injured passengers and
flight attendants. However, Haines states that there is no
threat of a collision caused directly by UAPs "because of the
reported high degree of maneuverability shown by the UAP."
While flying over Lake Michigan in 1981, TWA Capt. Phil Schultz
saw a "large, round, silver metal object" with dark portholes
equally spaced around the circumference that "descended into
the atmosphere from above," according to his hand-written
report. Schultz and his first officer braced themselves for a
mid-air collision; the object suddenly made a high-speed turn
and departed.

Veteran Japan Airlines 747 Capt. Kenju Terauchi reported a
spectacular prolonged encounter over Alaska in 1986. "Most
unexpectedly, two space ships stopped in front of our face,
shooting off lights," he said. "The inside cockpit shined
brightly and I felt warm in the face." Despite the Federal
Aviation Administration's determination that he and his crew
were stable, competent, and professional, he was grounded for
speaking out. In 1997, a Swissair Boeing 747 over Long Island
just missed a glowing, white, cylindrical object speeding
toward the plane. According to an FAA Civil Aviation Security
Office memorandum, pilot Philip Bobet said that "if the object
was any lower, it may have hit the right wing."

Ground-systems operators have also been affected by UAP. "The
element of surprise means a decrease in safety because it
diverts the attention of air-traffic controllers that should be
focused on landing planes. That is a danger," says Jim
McClenahen, a recently retired FAA air-traffic-control
specialist and NARCAP technical adviser. "Aviation Safety in
America" does not attempt to explain the origin of these
mysterious objects. But Haines writes that hundreds of reports,
some dating back to the 1940s, "suggest that they [UAPs] are
associated with a very high degree of intelligence, deliberate
flight control, and advanced energy management."

In the 1950s, pilots and crews reported seeing flying discs,
cigar-shaped craft with portholes, and gyrating lights, all
with extraordinary technical capabilities. Documents show the
unexplained objects were considered a national security
concern. By order of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commercial
pilots were required to report sightings and the unauthorized
release of a UFO report could cost them 10 years in prison or a
$10,000 fine. To keep this information from the public,
officials ridiculed and debunked legitimate sightings, angering
some pilots. According to the Newark Star Ledger in 1958, more
than 50 commercial pilots who had reported sightings, each with
at least 15 years of major airline experience, blasted the
policy of censorship and denial as "bordering on the absolutely

These pilots said they were interrogated by the Air Force,
sometimes all night long, and then "treated like incompetents
and told to keep quiet," according to one pilot. "The Air Force
tells you that the thing that paced your plane for 15 minutes
was a mirage or a bolt of lightening," he told the Star-Ledger.
"Nuts to that. Who needs it?" As a result, many pilots "forget"
to report their sightings at all, one pilot said. According to
a 1952 Air Force Status Report on UFOs for the Air Technical
Intelligence Center, pilots were so humiliated that one told
investigators, "If a space ship flew wing-tip to wing-tip
formation with me, I would not report it." The vast majority of
sightings by American pilots are still not reported. The media
perpetuate the censorship and ridicule, handicapping the
collection of valuable data.

However, such dismissals may soon lose ground. Next Wednesday,
John Callahan, former division chief of the Accidents and
Investigations Branch of the FAA, will disclose FAA
documentation and subsequent CIA suppression of the Terauchi
encounter over Alaska. Callahan will be joined by more than 20
other government and military witnesses, and dozens more on
videotape, at a National Press Club briefing to challenge
official secrecy about this subject. Retired United Airlines
Capt. Neil Daniels, whose DC-10 was forced into a left turn
because of magnetic interference of cockpit compasses by a
brilliant UAP, is among the many who want change. "The energies
out there are absolutely profound," he says. "I think we need
to know what they are."

Leslie Kean is a journalist and author in the San Francisco Bay
area. (


SUSSEX -- Brian Shaw writes that on May 6, 2001, at around 7:30
PM, my dad and I drove over a hill and got a good veiw of
strange things in the sky. They were shiny orange dots above
the mountains in the Sunset sky. We saw two objects. One was
either a disk or it was a meteor debris trail. It either went
below the horizon or simply disappeared, but as some vanished a
few more kept popping up. Some were spots and some were disk
shaped. My Mom saw one towards the end of the event, which was
definitely like a meteor. One was moving faster than the others
and left a trail behind it. The show ended as they all sank
below the horizon or just vanished. We definitely were not
imagining seeing these things, because other people were
staring up into the Northwest part of the sky just over the
Sunset. We saw at least ten or twelve objects there may have
been more. Thanks to Brian Shaw --

Editor's Note: Last weekend, Earth passed through a trail of
dusty debris from distant Comet Halley, triggering the annual
eta Aquarid meteor shower. The nearly-full Moon reduced the
visibility of this year's shower. It seems unlikely you could
have seen these during sunset because of its light. Most of the
observations were seen in the south an hour before local
sunrise on Saturday and Sunday. It's a good chance you saw some
UFOs. For more information visit

HAWTHORNE, NJ -- Tom Sheets and ISUR report that Daniel Dorval
saw a strange flying pyramid shaped flying object in June of
1998 at 10:15 PM. The object was thirty feet on a side and
fifty feet off the ground. It was all black and moved very
slow. There was no sound. Daniel says, "The craft had a mirror
like reflecting surface, because I could see my self in the
bottom as it passed over." Thanks to Tom Sheets and ISUR.


BUENA VISTA - The National Reporting Center reports that two
friends were walking home on April 25, 2001, when they looked
up into the sky and noticed a small triangular shaped craft at
3:40 AM. One witness stated, "We both looked to see if it could
possibly be wings of a plane, but there was no back end to the
plane." He says, "It had a bright 'headlight' leading its
course, that I myself have never seen on an airplane."
Extruding from the sides were small green lights on each end.
The witness explained, "I'm familiar with red lights on a
plane, but never in pairs." Even though the craft was flying at
low altitude, it was not making the slightest noise. Our town
was quiet as could be at 3:40 AM. The craft was hovering, not
as much flying. Although it was late, neither one of us were
drastically tired, intoxicated, nor had any drugs in our bodies
and are truthful behind what we saw. Although there are three
airports in a 50-mile radius, this craft was a strange flying
triangle with side green lights, and a bright headlight. Thanks
to Peter Davenport Director of NUFORC.

ROANOKE -- Andy and Robin Hodge writes, "Last week, you posted
our sighting of a pair of flying orbs on Monday, April 23rd in
Filer's Files #18 over Roanoke. My email address was included.
I thought you would like to know, we just received an email
from a fellow in Midlothian, Virginia who said he and his
girlfriend also saw a pair of flying orbs on Friday, April
27th. I just thought you would like to know that other is
seining the same things. :) Thanks to Robin Hodge


CHADBOURN -- The witness reports, I was in my yard on May 4,
2001, as we live in a rural area. We enjoy looking at the stars
my wife and I enjoy the evening stars. A strange craft shaped
like Flying Triangle flew over. At first, I thought it might be
a military aircraft, but my husband built aircraft, and said
that, "It was not one of ours, including area 51 special


MYRTLE BEACH -- Well on May 1,-2001, at exactly 10:00 PM, my
friend and I were walking on the beach, and we sat down looking
towards the Atlantic Ocean, We at first saw five lights all in
a line which kind of curved around. The object came half way
thought the clouds, then it started backing up slowly to the
right. A second object with five more lights became visible
while the other one was backing up. The one on the left then
disappeared, while the one to the right backed up really fast
and vanished. Now these lights to the left were all lined up in
the same pattern as the first set we saw. There was three
elderly people out there that saw the same thing. We all came
to the conclusion that it couldn't have been an airplane,
because it was to low to the ocean. It was not fireworks, and
they didn't make any sound at all! There were no boats out in
the ocean either. Thanks to Barry Taylor


CAPE CANAVERAL -- I just returned from USA where the vast
majority do not believe in UFOs. Newspaper disinformation is
successful. I saw one strange craft in Central Florida (quick
white-red flash, erratic low flight over marsh) but nothing
close. More importantly, heard of new abduction case ca. 1990
just inland from Cape Canaveral, involving two very prominent
Florida citizens during 4:00 AM turkey shoot. There was a 100
meter craft overhead, 1.5 hours lost without memory, and scars
on both people afterward. The full report made it to top US law
officials, but there was no public notice. I referred to
reputable US investigators, may possibly come out if the
individuals are brave. Thanks to Woof, red collie Australia

SEBASTIAN -- On April 25, 2001, I saw the UFO approaching from
the northeast. "It was a big cylinder-shaped object with
something like a sphere on the front," he reported, "If I were
to guess, that is where they control the ship from. I know that
what I saw was something really odd and not a UFO but it looked
like one to me, for sure." " It was a silvery black cylinder
with a sphere on the front. It was way up there, maybe 30,000
feet (9,900 meters) and it moved slow at the beginning but then
began to move extremely quick" before departing to the
southwest. Thanks to UFO ROUNDUP Volume 6, Number 18 May 3,
2001 Editor: Joseph Trainor


GLASGOW -- While driving on Cumberland Parkway the witnesses
noticed five white lights about 5 miles from the tollbooth in
Barren County on April 21, 2001. The series of lights were
shaped like a flying triangle moving slowly towards the
southeast at 8:00 PM. The witness stated, "It took about five
minutes for the object to intersect my truck at its zenith over
the toll both. I paid my toll, went down about 1/2 mile, and
pulled off to the shoulder of the road. The craft was very,
very low and the far-left light had a single red strobe. My
wife got out and we measured this object with our outstretched
arms. It was very huge and covered the distance of five human
hands at arm's length. It was like looking at a 747 a couple of
hundred feet above the tarmac at an airport. I was completely
amazed at the lack of engine noise. The witnesses stated, "The
object was triangle-shaped and similar to a boomerang, but with
well-defined sharp corners." They stood there for two minutes
as the craft slowly drifted a couple more degrees southeast.
While still directly above them the craft accelerated gaining
altitude. It moved rapidly past the horizon in about 15
seconds. By the time we got the camera and snapped a picture it
was too far away to get anything of use on the film. The city
of Louisville had its annual "Thunder over Louisville" that
same night so this event may be related to the air show. The
witness said, "I never saw an aircraft that low that did not
make an engine sounds. Additionally, it traversed 90 degrees of
sky in 15 seconds. Thanks to Peter Davenport


WILDWOOD -- On April 26, 2001, the witness was looking out her
window, which gives a panoramic view of the East Grayslake. The
witness reports, "I saw two rather large glowing objects in the
distance at two minutes before midnight. They remained
stationary separately moved away after midnight." He stated, "I
was awestruck and was waiting for movement, but they continued
to hover for about five minutes when suddenly the lower left
craft started moving towards the west until I lost sight of
it." The object moved very fast, but it was not instantaneous.
The other object stayed, so he went to get binoculars from the
dinning room. Just as he got back to the window the object
started moving. He raised his binoculars, but before he could
focus the object started moving west. The objects were observed
as rather large lights, but they had an oblong symmetrical
shape. The witness stated, "While watching, I also had the
sensation that something zoomed past my window just above the
roof of my house. There was no noise. He said, "I feel they
were UFO's and that means just what it is intended to stand
for, "Un-Identified Flying Objects!"


MANHATTAN BEACH -- On April 24, 2001, the witness observed a
craft from his roof top deck. He was lying in his hot tub at
9:25 PM and gazing up at the night sky when a flight of six
objects flew east at a high rate of speed. The witness lives on
the coastline, so the craft were coming in from over the ocean.
He did not know their altitude, but they high enough so no
details on the craft were visible. All craft appeared to be the
same and gave off a faint whitish glow (with a slight cast of
yellow), just enough to make them visible. The craft were in
perfect separation as they passed overhead. Three of the craft
broke off and changed heading to the east. The other three
maintained course for a couple seconds then joined up on the
first three. Perfect separation was maintained at all times. No
sound was heard. The craft disappeared several seconds' later,
still headed approximately 070 degrees. At first I thought they
were birds, then jets, since I used to fly A-4's fighters in
the service. What got me was the sudden brake off movement of
the first three, with no roll movement observed when they
changed course. They seemed to simply "translate" over, for
want of a better word. In addition, the speed seemed very high,
and the separation was too perfect. I have seen many flight
demonstration teams, but nothing like that. Flying that type of
perfect formation would be very difficult for a military jet.
In addition, some sort of roll movement is required to change
heading that quickly. Thanks to Jeff Rense and Sightings.


I received a letter from Jo Glapan a former French College
professor. In gratitude for sending him my files, he sent a
copy of his book dealing with UFO propulsion, that I'm having
translated from French. He claims that UFOs use CaCO3 (Calcium
Carbonate) in their propulsion systems. This is mostly chalk or
calcareous earthly substance of opaque white colors, soft, and
easily pulverized. I think they have been robbing our planet
for thousands of years. That's why we find enormous caves under
the seas in the Bahamas or Australia. I hope my gritting ideas
will show you that our "formal science is not quite
honest-there are too many holes --- or lies. Thanks to Jo

Editor's Note: Calcium Carbonate is a variety of limestone,
calcium and is composed mainly of small seashells but may
include bones, teeth, and plant ash. It is used in making lime.
Calcium Carbonate is a crystalline compound found mainly in
limestone, marble, and chalk. I was discussing Jo's letter with
Nancy Talbot who mentioned that most crop circles are sitting
on chalk or limestone. Its thought that water filtering through
the porous chalk soil attracts the electrical or microwave
energy that is associated with crop circles. We speculated that
UFOs are often seen near crop circles and there appears to some
relationship that Jo Glapan's statements would substantiate.
Earthlights or discharges of electrical ball lights are often
observed near Crop Circles. These crop circles in turn are
often situated near megalith prehistoric stone monuments such
as Stonehenge. These sites often include dolmens that are large
prehistoric tombs or monuments consisting of large, flat stones
laid across large upright stones. These monuments are found all
over the world often in circular configurations. These
monuments frequently contain electrically charged areas. I
personally visited many of these sites in England, Greece, and
Turkey. The sites are often tied to beliefs in healing, and
fertility. Through the ages people learned these sites helped
increase the growth of crops, the successful birth of off
spring, prosperity and happiness. A person who sees the
grandeur and intricacy of crop circles realizes that there is
some powerful force at work. In recent weeks the Earth has been
pounded by radiation from solar flares and coronal mass
discharges. It is reasonable to assume some of this energy does
more than light up the sky with Aurora Borealis (Northern
Lights). The incredible energy may react inside the chalk and
limestone soil creating the Crop Circles. I was wondering if
any of our readers are chemists, scientists, or electrical
engineers who would care to comment on these findings. The
first UFO book I read was by Ivan Sanderson called "Invisible
Residents." He contends that large numbers of UFOs are seen
entering and leaving the water.


BOGOTÁ -- On April 23, 2001, at 4:15 PM, three UFOs were flying
over Bogotá where more than 3,000 people in the city's business
district witnessed them. The objects were in the vicinity of
Cerro El Cable Hill where they remained motionless for four
minutes. This case was covered in detail last week. We wish to
thanks to Scott Corrales the Director of the Institute of
Hispanic Ufology for the Spanish "Translation (C) 2001.
IHU.William Chavez" IHU, and Louise Lowry.


David E. Twichell writes, "The ancient astronaut and Biblical
UFO hypotheses are not new. However, no one seems to want to
take the matter to the next logical step. If Ezekiel's, "wheel
within a wheel," and Moses', "pillar of fire and cloud," were
forerunners of today's UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the
brilliant cloud to which Jesus ascended must be treated in the
same vein. When Biblical descriptions of anomalous aerial
phenomena are overlaid on that of modern-day UFO reports, the
picture seems to meld as one. Once the evidence has been
presented, the reader is led to a conclusion that is at best
convincing and at least thought provoking. Are you willing to

Jeff Challender has prepared a new tape of various UFOs that
were caught on recent Shuttle video footage. Jeffhas over an
hour-long tape of UFOs shot in space. Jeff spends hundreds of
hours watching the shuttlebroadcasts from space and is now an
expert on NASA missions and even those onboard the shuttle are
unlikelyto see what Jeff does. Using Jeff's directions you will
be able to learn the difference between space junk, icecrystals
and real UFOs. One segment has 24 UFOs watching the shuttle
from space. I feel confident we could gointo a court of law and
convince any jury, UFOs are moving around our Earth. Send $25
