The following report is extraordinary. The source is highly credible and the importance of the incident is self-evident. Simply put, this case is among the most fascinating I have encountered during my decades of research into nuclear weapons-related UFO sightings. It all began with an email:

Since I'm retired, and no longer held accountable to the National Security 10 year no-talk list, I can tell you I have seen and heard of plenty unexplained phenomena in the missile fields. I was stationed at Ellsworth AFB, SD in the late 70's; Vandenberg AFB, CA in the early 80's; Grand Forks AFB, ND in the middle 80's to early 90's and Malmstrom AFB, MT in the early 90's. I spent over 11 years in the actual missile field before being promoted to a desk job.
If you can find the data, check out the winter of 1979, Delta flight at Ellsworth AFB. If you want further details, we might want to talk in person, or via a hard line. All of Echo and most of Delta flights. I was on Delta 6 at the time.
Livescience.com Spins the Facts
April 18, 2011
In the wake of the recent, widespread, but misguided publicity surrounding the FBI memorandum written by Special Agent-in-Charge Guy Hottel—which recounted the alleged recovery of three "flying saucers" in New Mexico—numerous articles have appropriately debunked the document, including one written for livescience.com by Skeptical Inquirer magazine's managing editor Ben Radford. See FBI's UFO File: Proof of Roswell?.
The supposedly just-released, supposedly important memo is neither and Radford rightly says just that. So far, so good. However, in an apparent effort to suppress relevant facts related to the UFO crash-recovery story—facts that Radford would never mention—livescience.com has declined to post my own input. In response to Radford's remarks I wrote a detailed comment, which received an "awaiting moderation" reply when I tried to post it. As of this date it still has not appeared on the website and seems to have been rejected. In any case, here is what I attempted to add to the discussion …
My father, USAF Senior Master Sergeant Robert E. Hastings, was stationed at Malmstrom AFB, Montana in 1966–67 and worked in the SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) building which housed the base's sophisticated, NORAD-integrated radar facility. As some former members of the 29th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron (FIS) based at Malmstrom will recall, there were several scrambles during that era involving intercept attempts of "unknown targets" that were being tracked on radar as they maneuvered near and/or hovered above various Minuteman nuclear missile sites scattered across the surrounding countryside.
Witness Affidavits and Declassified Documents
October 11, 2010
Worldwide media coverage relating to the press conference on UFOs and Nukes, held at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on September 27, 2010, has been absolutely amazing. Sponsored by former U.S. Air Force Captain Robert Salas and myself, the event showcased stunning UFO incidents at nuclear weapons sites, as revealed by former USAF personnel who were directly or indirectly involved in them.
Later in this article, I have inserted the witnesses' affidavits, in which they describe their personal encounters in detail. Also included is the small cross-section of declassified U.S. government documents that Mr. Salas and I distributed to the reporters present for the event.

James T. Carlson is on a mission to educate and enlighten "credulous" Americans who accept the reality of UFOs. (No matter how many lies it takes to get the job done.)
