Why This Story Matters!

What I have uncovered is amazing evidence that has been left hidden away and untold for over sixty years, facts that under normal circumstances were passed over, never bothered with, existing only in the vivid imaginations of a few misinformed people making claims and turning out fictitious stories about the Kingman UFO. Within the fray were a few who really knew what happened and those who were interested in historical accuracy, a tough uphill climb when so much of Kingman's UFO story had been kept quiet. Waxing over my findings might suppress information for a time, but will not stop me from sharing facts every person on earth should be free to know. I have actually been told "Not" to say anything about this before giving a public presentation, but I discretely mentioned a few points that needed to be addressed and as a result was later told the Video shot of my presentation had a portion mysteriously ruined that just happened to be the segment I was specifically told not to talk about. All said to me with a straight face. It was an amazing coincidence to have two cameras running simultaneously and both failed to record what I shared that was well recieved. This "reaction" is about what I discovered and introduction of facts that would unhinge make believe stories that cannot be explained. Typical "Flat Earth" mentality and a reminder of the old Egyptian proverb, "There is no darkness like ignorance"


Tip of the iceberg that needed to be shared, because there has been rapid growth in irresponsible false and miss-leading claims that have gotten to the point people can't tell who to believe. No vendettas. I am an Historian that works in the real world outside. My research always runs deep into history, transitions me to the era of study and to the way people saw things, thought and reacted. No comparison with modern day exposure to belief systems, communications, priorities and ultra-technology.


Thus moving on with work, my research revealed that by the time Kenneth Arnold had landed at Pendleton, Oregon on June 25, 1947 and reported he saw flying discs at Mt. Rainier in Washington state the previous day, he was not in fact the first person to see and make a modern UFO report on the very same date. However his personal promotion and claim that he was the first person to see UFOs went unchallenged! Well before and during the entire week of the alleged Roswell UFO crash there was a substantial number of UFO witness reports across the entire United States. History shows during the same week in 1947 the most startling important and ominous UFO event to ever be recorded was not just a sighting, it was a dangerous encounter experienced by multiple first-hand eye witnesses and it is doubtful that such a well documented event has ever happened since .. not counting forthcoming Exaggerator stories! These detailed UFO sightings were reported by credible people that included pilots, law enforcement, meteorologists, professional people and the general public saying they too had witnessed UFOs flying, crashing and landing in 41 U.S. states, well before the alleged Roswell crash, or the Kingman UFO landing and crashes. My new book "7 Days in May™ The Kingman UFO Story" looks back to these earlier UFO reports and brings together evidence for readers that clearly proves flying disc sightings (UFOs) were widespread in the U.S. before and after World War II.

Claims were made by an Exaggerator that he personally searched through every newspaper within one hundred miles of Kingman and newspapers in Las Vegas, Nevada and never found a single word mentioned about UFOs any where around in May 1953. I did the research this Exagerrator claimed he had done and found there were only two other newspapers that existed at the time. That's not exactly an overwhelming number of newspapers to research. Two small newspapers. While researching archives and the original newspapers published in 1953, I discovered multiple Front Page news stories that included UFOs and I found information that disproved several other deceptive claims made by Exaggerators. As a professional Historian, I have observed many tellers of tall tales bragging they are ufo experts that should be invited to speak at conferences and symposiums. Most are careful with their bluster, because they generally lack motivation and aptitude to actually do the work, which requires them to leave their chairs. Hoodwinking the public is easier.


Exaggerators and their fairy tales earn a special place in the Kingman UFO story and probably in most all UFO stories, as they are the constant static in the background of Ufology and their lingo needs to be checked out. Another bizarre claim with no credibility is the profound claim that 'if a newpaper doesn't publish a story about a UFO crash, then that means the UFO crash never happened'! An amazing and poorly thought out claim! The benefit of doing real reseach is weeding out such terrible trash and getting to facts about what happened at Kingman in 1953. It was never up to newspapers to decide what is and isn't valid concerning UFOs. The News Media tends to buck the idea that UFOs are, or might be real. No matter how many eye witnesses or what evidence is discovered. Media is not as open minded as they should be. Military and Government policy dictates UFO activity is top secrect.

The Art shown here was created by me from a single UFO 3D Cad work that was the product of my research findings that match a first-hand eye witness description of the Kingmn UFO skillfully rendered and provided to me by noted Researcher and Aviation Historian Michael Schratt. From there I created this busy UFO art scene to depict a documented event that happened May 21, 1953, when eight (8) UFOs did aggressive Dog Fight maneuvers and were observed by three (3) highly credible men who watched it for over an hour. This happened just 5 minutes away from the downed Kingman UFO that was already in the custody of the U.S. Air Force. This ominous event actually preceded another significant action on the same day and my finds about it are discussed in my book "7 Days In May™ The Kingman UFO Story."

Exaggerators claim the Kingman UFO was not taken across the calm waters behind Hoover dam during it's transport to Groom Lake, Neveda, contrary to eye-witness statements by those who actually moved the UFO that way. Exaggerators claimed the Kingman UFO was being winched across the Colorado river just below the dam then broke lose when a cable snapped, so it floated down the river. Then the story changed again, cliaming the UFO was taken across the river below the dam. The geography of Black Canyon at Hoover dam disproves false stories. There were no road crossings over the river 'below' the dam, and it is fact that spillway water from dam flowes out at up to 500,000 cubic feet per second. (1 cubic foot = 7 gallons)

The Red Lake UFO was the 2nd craft down and first of two UFOs to crash (22 and 24 May 1953) near Old Kingman! As Red Lake UFO declined from altitude it struck and ricocheted off a rocky butte, then overshot a water filled reservoir called Foo Tank striking the ground 0.02 miles away, skidded a short distance and stopped. Saucer sustained significant damage to it's leading edge, severely injuring two of the four member crew who were rescued by US Air Force Retrieval Team returning from hand-off of Kingman UFO at Hoover dam. Two injured crew members suffered severe lower extremity injuries and were rushed to Nellis AFB for treatment where they died. Two surviving crew members were taken to facility at Groom Lake to join four uninjured crew members from the Kingman UFO landing 5/18/1953

Odd illumination at exact place the Red Lake UFO crashed on May 22, 1953
