Retired U.S. Air Force ICBM Targeting Team Chief Says The Big Sur Incident Was Not An Isolated Case
August 23, 2011
Thousands of declassified U.S. government documents and hundreds of military veterans have confirmed the reality of ongoing UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites. Seven of those veterans participated in my September 27, 2010 press conference in Washington D.C., which CNN streamed live. The full-length video of the event is here.
I have investigated the UFO-Nukes Connection since 1973 and have interviewed nearly 130 former or retired U.S. military personnel about their experiences at ICBM launch facilities, weapons storage depots, nuclear bomb test sites, and missile test ranges. A summary of their dramatic testimony may be found in my book UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites, which is available only at my website, www.ufohastings.com.
On October 23, 2010, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, in Cheyenne, Wyoming, temporarily lost the ability to communicate with 50 of its Minuteman III nuclear missiles. The five Missile Alert Facilities responsible for launching those ICBMs in time of war—Alpha through Echo, comprising the 319th Strategic Missile Squadron—would have been unable to do so during the period of the disruption.

Retired USAF Officer Confirms Receiving A UFO Report Just as the Missiles Failed
June 4, 2011
On March 16, 1967, ten Minuteman I nuclear missiles operated by Malmstrom Air Force Base's Echo Flight suddenly malfunctioned, one after the other, just as a "large, round object" was reported hovering above one of them—according to retired USAF Col. Walter Figel, one of two launch officers on duty during the incident.
Figel received the startling news while in the missile flight's underground Launch Control Capsule, during a two-way radio conversation with an Air Force security guard posted at the missile silo in question. Although highly skeptical of the report, then-Lieutenant Figel dispatched two-man Security Alert Teams to the field to investigate. At least one of them confirmed the presence of the UFO.
Interview with Colonel Walter Figel, Oct. 20, 2008
This is my first taped interview with Col. Walt Figel, occurring on October 20, 2008. Figel confirms that he had received a report from a security guard about a "large, round" UFO hovering over one of Echo Flight's missile silos, seconds after that missile failed. Figel further says that he and the other officer on duty that day, Captain Eric Carlson, where told not to talk about the incident and that Carlson's son, James Carlson, has misrepresented Figel's remarks to Hastings and others—regarding the reality of a UFO-presence during the Echo Flight shutdown incident—in his many blog posts on the topic.
