The whole article:
“An upset bus driver has told police of being ‘buzzed’ by a UFO in outback Western Australia.
Pioneer Express driver Mr. Peter Chapman said he and seven passengers saw a bright light flying alongside their bus on the Eyre Highway near Mundrabilla, about 100km from the South Australian border.
The sighting was close to where a Perth family claimed their car was picked up by a spaceship, carried down the road and dumped earlier this year.
Sergeant George Johansen, of Eucla police, said his friend Mr. Chapman was at first reluctant to report the sighting, early on Monday morning (17 October 1988).
‘He was a bit upset about it — it was pretty hair-raising for him,’ Sergeant Johansen said. ‘He also thought people would say he was a bit of a nut.’
But Sergeant Johansen said he took seriously Mr. Chapman’s report of a bright light, with another one revolving around it, which he had said appeared over an escarpment.
‘If he reported it, it would not be a hoax. He is not one of those people who makes things up.
‘Seven other people saw it.’
Mr. Chapman, of Ceduna, said the light had come up behind the bus, then flown beside it about
50 metres away and about
100m off the ground.
‘He said a couple of beams of light came out and lit the side of the bus before it disappeared,’ Sergeant Johansen said. ‘It made the hair on the back of his neck stand on end.’ ”

“ ‘UFOs and Nukes’ Documentary
Critiqued By Skeptic Tim Hebert:
Now the Filmmaker Responds”
By Robert L. Hastings, 16 September 2016
(The UFO Chronicles, 19 September 2016)
Quote from the article:
“A few days ago, I wrote an article in which I expressed surprise that none of my critics had publicly commented on my documentary film, UFOs and Nukes: The Secret Link Revealed, which has been available at Vimeo On Demand since April.
A search of the Internet reveals the extent to which some debunkers have attacked me over the years, following the 2008 publication of my book UFOs and Nukes, in which I present dozens of incidents involving UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites, as reported in declassified files and military witness testimony. Consequently, I was expecting more of the same once the film was released.
Shortly after my article appeared online, one of those skeptics, Tim Hebert, wrote a critique which, not surprisingly, contains a number of factual errors, convenient omissions and other misrepresentations.”
