Last Show Recap

UFO Sightings

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

UFO Sightings

Date: Saturday - March 18, 2006
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Nick Pope

Nick Pope, who used to run the British government's UFO project (similar to the USAF's Project Blue Book), discussed disclosure in the U.K. as well as seldom reported craft sightings by pilots and the military. Pope said out of the 200-300 UFO reports he received each year about 80% could be easily explained, 15% had insufficient data to render any conclusions, and the rest comprised what he called extremely interesting cases.

One such case occurred on November 5, 1990, Pope recalled. According to a pilot's report, Royal Air Force jets were overtaken by a large metallic object in the sky and had to take evasive action to avoid it. Pope said pilots often won't report spotting UFOs because they either don't know how to describe the objects or are frightened it could end their career. Another interesting UFO incident occurred in March 1993, Pope explained, when a massive triangular craft was seen flying over two British military bases. The object was described by a air force police officers as roughly between the size of a C-130 Hercules and Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet, flying 200 feet above ground level, and traveling at 20-30 mph. Witnesses reported seeing a light beam come out of the craft, Pope added.

He also shared Britain's famous Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, which took place around Christmas 1980. According to reports, a patrol of U.S. air force security officers from the Bentwaters and Woodbridge bases saw lights in the forest, and upon investigating discovered a small triangular UFO maneuvering through the trees. Witnesses claim the object touched down in a clearing and patrol sergeant Jim Penniston actually touched the craft. (Penniston's sketches appear in the article below.) Pope also talked about crop circle formations.
