“United States Air Force Continues To
Duck And Weave Over UFO Reporting”

Quote from the article:
“The deleted material in question is none-other than the good old ‘CIRVIS’ instructions, or, ‘Communications Instructions for Vital Intelligence Sightings.’ These are the very same procedural reporting guidelines that have been promulgated within the United States military since the 1950’s. CIRVIS reporting procedures demand the timely reporting of ‘Unidentified Flying Objects’ by military and civilian pilots, as well as other members of the United States armed forces. In fact, the first procedural doctrine that CIRVIS reporting procedures appeared in was JANAP 146(A), or, ‘Joint Army Navy Air Force Protocol 146(A).’ Ordered by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) back in 1954, JANAP 146 continued to be promulgated and amended until 1975. By then, the publication was up to the ‘E’ version, or JANAP 146(E), and it continued to contain the infamous CIRVIS chapter with ‘Unidentified Flying Objects’ listed right there alongside, but distinct from, ‘Unidentified Aircraft,’ ‘Missiles,’ etc.

Sometime in the 1980’s or 1990’s, certain aspects of JANAP 146(E) doctrine were replaced by a new set of guidelines titled ‘Air Force Manual 10-206 Operational Reporting.’ The earliest version I have on file was disseminated by the Secretary of the Air Force (SAF) on the 7th of March, 2000. CIRVIS procedures are laid out in Chapter 5, pages 39 to 41, and, just in case there is any doubt, point 5.7.3. specifically states ‘Report the following specific sightings.’ Point states just three words: ‘Unidentified flying objects.’ A newer version of the publication was disseminated on the 15th of October, 2008 and was upgraded to an Instruction, rather than a Manual. The title was, thus, ‘Air Force Instruction 10-206 Operational Reporting’ and CIRVIS reporting continued to be laid out as clearly as ever. Then, in 2011, CIRVIS – and let’s not forget what it stands for: ‘Communications Instructions for Vital Intelligence Sightings’ – vanished. A new version of ‘Air Force Instruction 10-206 Operational Reporting,’ dated 6th September, 2011, superseded the 2008 edition, but was massively reduced in scope and size, including the removal of CIRVIS procedures, and thus, a channel for reporting UFO’s.”

“Significant Release Of Never-Before-Seen
Australian UFO Policy.... And Get Excited....
Because Some Of It Is Still Classified – Part 3”

Quote from the article:
“Some of you will be aware that in 1994 the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) official policy of accepting and investigating UFO sightings, or ‘Unusual Aerial Sightings’ (UAS) as they called them, was massively downgraded to almost nothing at all. I knew there would be a paper trail (beyond what was already released years ago) which hadn’t been appraised before. In September, 2015, using the powerful Freedom of Information (FOI) Act, I submitted a detailed request to the Department of Defence (DoD) for any material that “went into” this policy downgrade. They issued me, at some cost, 42 pages of never-before-seen administrative records from that era. This is the third and final Part of this series. For those who wish to start from the beginning, have a look at Part 1 and Part 2.

Beyond what I have highlighted previously, there are some more records that are of some interest. A 3 page ‘Message Form’ dated 24th December, 1993 was sent to six ‘Air Indicator Groups’ (AIG). An AIG is a list of preset destinations for internal message routing. This particular message was titled ‘Unusual Aerial Sightings: Revised Policy’ and had a file reference 138/93/DGPP. DGPP stands for Director General of Plans and Policy. The author was Air Commodore S. T. James who was DGPP for the RAAF in 1993 and 1994.”

U.S. Government UFO Document:
DATE: 1 May 52/
LOCATION: Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona”

(Project Blue Book, U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C.)

Source:, Lindon, Utah

Quote from the document:
Shiny-metal color. Circular shaped. Seemed to close on B-36 then made sharp turns. Might have been fighters however description precludes this. Too bad altitude of B-36 is unknown.

Overtook B-36 at 3x B-36 speed. Hovered near B-36 then disappeared by getting smaller.”
