A transcript with [notes] of the second hour of the program.
Robert Pozzuoli Videotape
June 24, 1984 videotaped a UFO over Brewster, NY (Westchester-Putnam county). He is vice president of a major electronics firm in NYC. The videotape shows a disclike object with a string of 6 bright lights around it moving across the sky. It then moved behind a pine tree and was lost to sight for 3 sec. As it emerged from behind the tree, the object was different. "We now saw a string of multicolored lights in the shape of a disc with a red light flashing behind it. The lights appeared to be rotating. Then they went behind some houses low on the horizon and vanished." This UFO was also seen over the Indian Point Nuclear Reactor at Buchanan, NY, just south of Peekskill.
[These events are discussed (with pictures and drawings) in Night Siege, The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings by Dr. J. Allen Hynek and Philip Imbrogno with Bob Pratt. A man identifying himself as an NSC agent tried to obtain the tape. He was told that the tape would not be turned over to him or any organization until investigators were assured of complete cooperation and exchange of information in return. "You know, Phil," he said, "the government has done away with people for a lot less." The October TV show evidently used some footage from this videotape. You could see the circle of lights and blinking rear one, but the circle did not seem to be rotating in the tape segment shown. See CLOSE ENCOUNTER ON I84 by P. Imbrogno in the December 1988 issue of Oddysey on-line magazine available on Paranet Alpha (602) 837-0062; 2400 8 N 1 Also see ABDUCTIONS IN THE HUDSON VALLEY by P. Imbrogno in the Nov 1988 (Vol1N3) issue of UFO UNIVERSE published by Condor Books, Inc. 351 W. 54 St, New York, NY 10019]
Sep 23, 1980 UFO Escorted by 23 Helicopters
Betty Cash reported that it was a very cold night in the piney woods of E. Texas. "Vicki and I and her grandson were coming back from playing Bingo. Suddenly, little Colby noticed a bright light in the sky above the pine trees. A tremendous amount of heat was coming from this diamond shaped thing. Fire was coming out of the bottom of it. When it moved, it made a "swishing" sound and there was a beeping the entire time, that I still hear in my mind at night." Vicki said, "All three of us got out of the car, then Vicky & Colby got back in. Betty continued, "I just stood there terrified for about ten minutes. The object lit up the surrounding pine woods like it was daylight. I was burning, my skin was burning. The craft hovered over me about 20 minutes. Fire was coming out of it like a blowtorch. Then it lifted up and flew over the trees."
Vicki said, "That was when the helicopters came out. (Colby counted 23 helicopters which they later identified as CH47 Chinok military helicopters) The roar was like a tornado."
Vicki said, "When we got home, I washed Colby off and put him to bed. When water touched his skin, he cried out like he had been burned, as if he had been out in the sun too long." Betty Cash was too sick to go to work the next day. Betty continued, "My eyes swelled closed, welts appeared on my face and head. I thought I was going to die. Vicki came and took me to the ER of the hospital. They treated me like a burn patient. Over the next few days, I lost big patches of skin on my face and about half my hair fell out. They kept me in the hospital for over a month with no improvement." Photographs were shown of her arm. She now has cancer and had cancer surgery in Mar 1983 but the doctors couldn't say whether they got it all.
A government intelligence agent (FALCON) told the TV journalists that the craft observed was an alien craft piloted by military aircraft pilots. Although they had been trained and were somewhat familiar with the craft, they found that it would not respond to certain controls and radioed that they believed it was going to crash. Standard military procedure regarding crashed aircraft is to deploy search and rescue helicopters. These were following the craft but it did not crash. (Project SNOWBIRD)
