“Col. Wendelle Stevens and my Dad, a Lt Col. In the USAF both told me about the Kingman Crashes, so Harry Drew is telling the truth, the Kingman Crashes are the ‘Key’ to the whole UFO Story as the secret space program comes from there!" Bill Brophy
One extraordinary false claim about the Kingman UFO is that the military closed highway 40 ( Interstate 40) from Kingman to Barstow, California (206 miles) for several days just to move the Kingman UFO west from Kingman down Arizona highway 68 to the Colorado river and across to connect with Nevada highway 95. From there the UFO was supposedly transported north to Groom Lake (Area 51). This ridiculous story was first made known in a letter written in 1990 by a man stating he was a professional investigator. Everything about this story was made up, it has no basis in fact, and no one did the slightest research to check it out, so the story spread like wildfire until my research uncovered it as a fraud more than 20 years later. Highway 40 (today's Interstate 40) did not exist in 1953 and wouldn't for another 30 years! There was no bridge across the Colorado river off highway 68 in 1953. That instantly meant no one closed highway 40 to move a UFO and the actual route used had to be somewhere else. After much fieldwork I located the route and traveled it. A MUFON man in Pennsylvania claimed my comments about this were wrong, said he knew the story was first discussed in 1973, not when I first talked about it in 2008. But his story isn't true either, because highway 40 still didn't exist and there was no bridge before 1973. As an Historian my research uncovered significant false and misleading stories about the Kingman UFO. My findings reveal what is factually true and that has not set well with hucksters who deliberately created false and misleading stories meant to fool the public. (Map - Mohave Museum)
Not exactly a freeway. This is what fieldwork is really all about. No sitting on your can playing on the internet and pretending to be an explorer and UFO hunter! This little trail goes out beyond cell phone range, no gas stations, no places to eat, no water, no people and often no road. You ultimately have to get out of your vehicle, gather up equipment and walk 8 or 9 miles through cougar and javelina country! Pay is low, but "Finding the UFO Needle in the Hay Stack" is well worth the effort!
View from the Rocky Butte looking south across the Red Lake Desert and UFO flyway. This is the flight-path and direction the Red Lake UFO was headed when it fell from the sky and ricocheted off the Rocky Butte and crashed into the desert floor on May 22, 1953. The Hualapai Valley can be seen in the distant background.
UFO people frequently demand to be shown or told where to go to dig up sites so they can carry away all they can. By Law it is 'illegal' to enter and dig up anything on private property and/or government lands without obtaining advance permission and permits. No person, or group, is allowed on restricted lands! The places I discuss here and in my books are Archaeological sites, not Public Playgrounds or Recreational Areas for UFO Souvenir Hunters.
Harry Drew brings new evidence and verifiable facts to the Disclosure table and sets the record straight about Kingman's UFOs, dispelling myths, impossible claims and manufactured false and misleading stories for decades which in most cases do not contain any factual substance or facts. Over the ten year period Drew dedicated to his Kingman project he has assembled the largest and most complete collection of original documentation, images, interviews and site evidence that has ever been assembled about the 1953 Kingman UFOs. His 'work' provides historical perspective to early UFO events and Kingman today!
