UFO Article (Blog) (Redux):
“The Air Force Investigates The Flying Disks”

By Dr. Michael D. Swords, 1 September 2009
(The Big Study)

Michael D. Swords informs about the first inquiries (in 1947) the U.S. Air Force made into UFOs.

Quote from the article:
“In late June of 1947, the flying disks had begun to appear all over the United States. This was the Air Force’s area of concern, and, after convincing themselves that this was not citizen craziness, they got on the job. The document on the upper right is an example of how quickly this happened and at what level of authority. It’s a note from General Nathan Twining [Commander of Wright-Patterson AFB, and the AF’s high technology research group] to Brigadier General Samuel Brentnall who was chief of the Engineering Technology division there. Twining and Brentnall have been discussing Flying Disk reports [there is a newspaper story on them clipped to this note] already by the beginning of July. So, the AF’s technology wizards are quite interested in what this mystery device is, which has now been reported by many of their own flyers.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The major information point for flying disk reports was in the Pentagon at the Air Force’s Intelligence Division. There they had a Collections branch commanded by Colonel Robert Taylor III. His right-hand man was Lt. Colonel George Garrett. Garrett got the job of collecting and correlating all the flying disk information. He had an FBI contact named S.L. Reynolds. The reason for the contact was that the intelligence community initially suspected that some of these reports were made by Soviet sympathizers in order to scare the public. They quickly found out otherwise [Soviet sympathizers weren't flying at 30,000 feet in metal disks to scare people in New Mexico], and Garrett and Reynolds settled down to try to figure out what WAS going on.”

Swords also presents U.S. government (U.S. Air Force and Federal Bureau of Investigation) documents that pertain to the UFO investigations.

I first reported about this article on 22 August 2013.

President Trump said:
“And I will tell you that I’ll do whatever you ask me to do, including total transparency. I got to tell you this … probably some pretty good transparency needed there. There’s no doubt about that.”
