The Straits Echo presents the UFO testimonies of Kenneth Leland, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Minnesota Air National Guard, Ed Simpson, a former U.S. Air Force radarman (served 20 years in the Air Force, 12 of them in radar operation) and Francis C. Sullivan, a retired U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant (served 28 years in the Air Force, 18 of them in radar operation).

It is tertimonies like these (by military personnel) that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that unknown objects operate in the Earth’s airspace.

The whole article (Page 26):
“AIR FORCE fighters have been repeatedly sent up to intercept – despite the refusal of the U.S. Air Force to admit that UFOs even exist.

Former airmen – now free to talk – revealed that UFOs have been sighted and officially reported, tracked on radar ‘by the hundreds’ and chased by Air Force planes sent after them.

‘I’m well aware of UFOs – we used to track them on radar and run up interceptors against them,’ stated Ed Simpson, a former Air Force radarman who is now a policeman in Phillips, Wisconsin, USA.

‘I tracked hundreds of UFOs on radar,’ said Francis C. Sullivan, a retired Air Force Master Sergeant now living in Tucson, Ariz.

And Kenneth Leland, an elementary school principal in Superior, Wis., who is still a Lieutenant Colonel in the Minnesota Air National Guard, told us: ‘My plane was ‘scrambled’ after a UFO that was actually over a radar site northeast of Duluth, Minn.

‘Scrambling’ is an Air Force term for rapid or emergency takeoff in response to an alert.

Patrolman Simpson spent 20 years in the Air Force, 12 of them in radar operation.

‘When I was stationed in the upper peninsula of Michigan, we had whole groups of UFOs. We tracked them on radar and scrambled jets after them that chased them around the sky. Over a period of 12 years, I’d say I tracked at least 50 UFOs.

Did the jets ever catch up with them? ‘No,’ Simpson replied. ‘Our planes would go up to around 52,000 feet, their normal limit, and the pilots would report the UFOs were 30,000 to 40,000 feet still higher.’

Former Master Sgt. Sullivan spent 28 years in the Air Force. For 18 of them he was a radar operator at air bases in Japan and the U.S.

‘I couldn’t give you the exact number of UFOs I tracked on radar, but it must have been in the hundreds,’ he told us. ‘A lot of times we’d scramble jets after them. But only once did a pilot succeed in getting close to one – at an Air Force base near Masawa (Misawa), Japan, in 1951.

‘An officer pilot named Brigham was in the air and I was in radio contact with him when he sighted something and went after it,’ Sullivan said. ‘He radioed, I’ve never seen such a thing! It’s round – I don’t know what it is – when I started closing in on it, it must have – it’s gone, Sully, it’s gone! Just gone!’ When he landed he reported the incident. The next day they shipped him out of there.

‘But in 1968 I made a telephone call to Peterson Field, and recognized the voice at the other end as Brigham’s.

‘I asked him what had happened after the incident in Japan.

‘He said, ‘I can’t talk about it. They took me to Washington and that’s all I can tell you. I still can’t discuss it and l’m told not to.’ ”
