Adak Island, Alaska UFO Hovers (Letter, Envelope, Audio Interview)

Posted: March 30, 2008

Location Information: Adak is an island midway along the Aleutian Island chain southwest of mainland Alaska at 177 degrees west. At 52 degrees north it is not exactly arctic, nor is it temperate; but it is nearly always buffeted by cold, wet winds. Most of the wind is generated by an endless series of cyclonic storms. The weather report for aviators almost never varies: Winds 25-40 gusting to 60, mostly cloudy with layers at 800 feet, 1200 feet, 2000 feet. Visibility 7 miles, rain. Temp 40 degrees F (plus or minus 5 degrees for most of the year). It is bounded on the east and the west by volcanoes. To the west is Kanaga Volcano, a beautiful perfect cone, and to the east by Great Sitkin, which nearly always is at least smoking and erupted in the early 1970's.

Brian Vike Director of *HBCC UFO Research* had a nice telephone conversation with an ex-serviceman by the name of Art. Art was stationed on Adak Island Aleutian Islands and was part of the crash crew for the fire department. One late night in January 1976 at the airport, the control tower personnel rang the crash crew and told the members that an aircraft was going to be landing. The crash crew members jumped up and peered out the window and did not see an airplane of any kind, but rather a glowing object approximately 50 feet across. (Art told me it was the brightest light that he has ever seen in his life)

Art said it was really eerie to watch, and the humming that came from the UFO, seemed to resonate throughout all of the crash teams bodies. One has to remember that the crash team was still inside their building when they could feel the humming, but they eventually did move outside and stood approximately 100 feet away from this huge and extremely bright UFO which was hovering just over the tarmac pretty much in front of the control tower and of course all the men watching.

As everyone stood looking at this unidentified object, more bright lights about the size of a Volkswagen came from out of the hovering UFO and flew at an incredible fast rate of speed up to a communication station which was located on a nearby hill and sat stationary on it. Another light went down and hovered over the bunkers. After a period of time the lights that were zipping around did come back to the main object and merged into it. All of a sudden the large UFO took off at such a high rate of speed it left all of the personnel watching it dumfounded. As Art mentioned, we have nothing here on earth that could move as quickly as this thing did and I would certainly be in agreement with Art on this.

The control tower called the crash crew and asked, "what the hell was that"! The crew replied back, it was a UFO! Art remembers one of the personnel in the control tower cursing, as this was something one does not see every day, and he also mentioned that the object was as bright as the sun and lit up the entire area as if it was daylight.

Art said, they were really frightened, they were young men at the time, Art being 19 years old. The thirteen men stood looking at one another saying, "what the heck was that"?

Soon afterwards, or after the event was over which left a lot of men scratching their heads, the officer of the day showed up and confronted the men and told them what they all saw was "Ball Lightning". Art's response to the officer of the day was, if that was ball lightning, then it had to be the largest display of lightning on record. Art also said he would be more than willing to sit down and take a lie detector test to provide what he is relating is the truth.

He also mentioned that there were people taking pictures of the object. He could not remember who these people were, but when the pictures came back, Art remembers everyone looking at them and seeing nothing but a bright, camera flash type light in each of the photos. One just wasn't able to see anything other than this brilliant white light.

Art also figures the object sat stationary just feet about the tarmac for 10 to 15 minutes. This object wasn't flying by, it was sitting still for a long period of time in front of all these men. Also he said that the UFO incident was placed into the crash crews logbook and also in the control tower's logbook as well.

Art sat down on another day following the sighting and wrote a letter to his family back home. This was a personal letter, asking how things were, etc, then Art added that he saw a UFO. He described just a little about what he saw.

You can view the letter by clicking on the following link. I also should add that HBCC UFO Research has not removed any of the names or information. I asked Art if I should remove names and he told me to leave the letter as is. The family members who are mentioned in this letter have passed away. I have also added a link to the envelope the letter came in. After the family members passed on a lot of their possessions were given back to family and this is how Art came into possession again of his letter.

Also you can view the envelope Art's letter came in which has the postal dated stamp on it: *Art's Envelope He Sent The Letter In To His Family*

The letter and the envelope are copyrighted 2008 to Art.

You also can listen to the telephone interview I did with Art over the UFO sighting at Adak Island, Aleutian Islands Alaska. The interview is 23:31 minutes in length. More can be heard by listening to the audio portion of this report.

On a side note, separate from the sighting Art and the other men had. Art told me about another time when a Coast Guard ship docked at Adak Island where he was stationed, and he and others were handling the tying up of the Coast Guard ship. After the ship was docked and the Coast Guard crew were coming off the ship, one of the sailors stopped and talked to Art and the other men, saying you would not believe what just happened as the Coast Guard ship was coming into port. A UFO came straight up and out of the water in front of the ship and kept traveling straight up. The sailor said the craft was anywhere from 50 to 100 feet in width. The ship immediately scrambled and went into general quarters. The sailor said he was as white as a sheet, from the sounds of things, the entire crew was pretty freaked out over the incident. Also I should add, this UFO incident happened prior to what Art and the others folks witnessed.

Thank you to Art for a fascinating report, the letter, envelope and telephone conversation.

Loring Air Force Base UFO Incident

Brian Vike's Note: Thank you to the serviceman who sent this information into me, I would really like to hear from any other serviceman or woman who served at the Loring, AFB who had witnessed the objects over the base, or who may have knowledge of these sightings.

I do have a number of reports from serviceman on the UFO incidents from Loring. You welcome to email Brian Vike at: or

Any names that are provided in the report below have been changed to protect the privacy of the individuals.

Brian, I just came across the information concerning the Loring incident. In October of 1975 I was working at Loring in the WSA. I know of nothing first hand - if you are still interested I would be glad to pass on what I can remember that was second hand.

Additional Information:

Brian, that was a very long time ago and my memory of what happened is far from clear. I was an NCO assigned to SRAM maintenance in the Integrated Maintenance Facility in the Weapons Storage Area.

 I lived in Base House at Presque Isle (this was actually a former Air Force Facility that they had retained the housing).

There were three of us (from Presque Isle) that car pooled together, one named (Ben) who worked in the same building as I and the other (whose name I can't recall) worked in a building adjacent to the weapon storage area.

I believe it was some sort of logistic function. The weapons storage area was very remote from the rest of the base and the logistic group was the only other group near the weapons storage area.

As I recall the actual weapon storage area we used was a small section of a much larger storage area.

The part we didn't use was abandoned and we were sectioned off by a separate fence. There were also a few abandoned buildings within the weapon storage area that were also abandoned and separately fenced off.

One in particular comes to mind that was completely sealed, no windows and the door welded shut. I believe their were numerous other abandoned buildings near the older abandoned part of the weapons storage area.

At any rate as I recall the incidents (the visits from the UFO) occurred over a few nights. I believe I became aware of these from our car pooler who worked in logistics. He seemed to be aware of more of what was going on.

I don't believe he was assigned to the 42nd munitions maintenance as we normally had limited contact with the rest of the base although most of the personnel lived on base.

On the morning of the last/most significant visit I probably was with the early group at the guard gate that walked up to our facility, possibly I may have been the one who stated that their must of been another UFO.

I believe the car pooler from the logistics' group may have told us about the earlier events and at some point indicated that it was a helicopter (of course he had not seen it and was only telling us what he had been told).

I can recall the discussions about the security police asking to shoot at it and being told not to despite the UFO about sitting on one of the weapons storage structures (Igloo).

I also recall the commanding officer (I don't recall if it was the base commander or munitions squadron commander) coming to the weapons storage area while the UFO was there or just after. I believe the security police may have told me that.

I don't recall being called up to the squadron headquarters and being told that anything, but I probably just don't remember that. I think the car pooler from the logistics group had told us that they had obtained/ordered some type of flares that they were going to use to deter the helicopter if it came back.

I don't recall anything about Air Force helicopters being brought in, but I may not have been aware of that or just don't remember.

 I thought a group of fighter aircraft were assigned to the base following this last incident and were there because of the incident, presumably to react in the even of another visit. But of course that a long time ago and my memory could be flawed.

I hope this is of some use. If you have questions please feel free to ask me.

Thank you very much to the person who sent in the important information.

If anyone has witnessed the object, please send me an email with details of what you saw. Please remember to include the date and time and location. (Town/City – State or Province) and as much detail as possible.

Adak Island, Aleutian Islands Alaska UFO Hovers 100 Feet Away From Military Personal

Posted: March 27, 2007

HBCC UFO Research is requesting any information, or any other military personal who were stationed Adak Island who were witness to this amazing UFO event in January of 1976 would you please contact Brian Vike - Director of HBCC UFO Research with any details you can provide. You can reach me at: I do respect everyone's privacy.

I ex-serviceman contacted me by email on Wednesday, March 19, 2008 and told me an fascinating story in which he was stationed on Adak, Island in May of 1975 until April 1976. The gentleman saw a UFO in January 1976. The man still has a personal letter he sent to his Aunt in 1976 with descriptions of the craft. He was on the fire department for 2 months, then he went to the crash crew. The fellow told me his still has many fond memories from being stationed there. Fishing drinking, hiking and skiing.

HBCC UFO Research replied to the fellow and asked if I might be able to telephone him and gather more information on what he saw. Also asking about posting the personal letter he wrote to his family, etc. I received an email back with the man's telephone number and I did call. Well what a wonderful conversation I had with him. A very nice fellow who filled me in on what he and 13 other military serviceman saw hovering just feet above the tarmac in front of the flight tower. I should add that there were other folks in the area who may have witnessed this craft. The incident was written up in the tower's log book, and some of the serviceman were taking photos of this UFO as it sat stationary. The object was huge in size and other smaller UFOs came of the larger one and moved about and then joining up again with the main craft. I was told the photos that were taken showed a brilliant light sitting over the runway. Also strobing colored lights could be seen coming from inside the main object.

I am going to release the "letter" as it was written, I won't be removing any names from it, or removing any information as permission was given for me to leave the letter intact. Also I will be releasing an 22 or so minute telephone interview where you can hear the witness describing the craft. I am just waiting to receive a scanned copy of the original envelope the letter came in.

Thank you to the gentleman for taking the time with me and sharing such a wonderful story.

Some Of The Things We Saw Were Literally Out Of This World

Posted: March 5, 2008

HBCC UFO Research received another fasinating look back in history, a letter from a gentleman who was kind enough to take the time and write up and submit the report. For me personally, these are "treasures" and a look back in time. Without these wonderful people who come forward with valuable information, we as UFOligists can't bring these truly wonderful story's to the general public. I really do encourage folks who were maybe stationed at the different military bases around the United States, here in Canada or bases around the world to write to me with this important information. Please always note, that I respect everyone's personal information and do not give it out to anyone. Brian Vike - Director of HBCC UFO Research

Also I would like to point out that permission was granted to leave the report intact as it was sent, the only thing HBCC UFO Research did, was to remove a couple of the last names for two individuals in this report.

I am retired military, U.S.Navy. My first duty station after apprentice training was at Naval Station, Adak Island, Alaska. I was assigned to the fire department as a fireman. I was not to keen on the idea of riding on the back step of a fire truck or fighting fires, so being a reasonably intelligent person and one of the few in the department that completed high school and could read and write, I got the job of department dispatcher. It was a nice desk job, I worked 7-4, 5 days a week and when all the other guys were out training I hung out in the dispatch office with one of the civilian fire chiefs.
There was 5 of them, 4 at the fire station and one was assigned as the crash crew chief at the airfield.

What was so unusual about these fellows was they were in their 50's and all near the end of their careers, and prior to coming out to the island, they had worked at the fire/crash department at Edwards/Muroc Air Force Base!

This was in the early 70's so most of their early career (late 40's,50's and 60's ) was at Edwards/Muroc during the period when all the experimental testing was going on there. I became really close with the fire chief Ed and an assistant chief Ron.

They knew all the Mercury astronauts plus anybody else that went through there. They recovered Edwards body the guy the base was named after. Yeager, Armstrong they knew them all.

In the book/movie "The Right Stuff", there is a scene where Yeager bails out of the plane when he lost control and he comes walking out of the desert carrying his chute. A pick up truck comes driving up to retrieve him. Well, in real life they were those guys and they seriously thought they were looking for a body!

It was many years after they told me that story, that I saw it re-enacted on the big screen and realized that I had heard this story before. I'm like an idiot standing up in the theater pointing at the screen saying, "Hey I know those guys!"

Well of course in the many hours of them telling me story's of their adventures at Edwards on the crash crew, watching Buzz Aldrin learn to control the prototype of the Lunar Lander and seeing the various other experimental planes, I remember once asking Ed and Ron if they had ever witnessed anything "weird". Ron looked at Ed and after a moment he quietly said, "some of the things we saw, were literally out of this world."

I didn't think much about it at the time and even later on thought they were talking of the SR-71 which landed once at Adak while I was there, or the U-2, you know exotic conventional planes. But, since reading about Cooper's encounter at Edwards with the saucer landing there and the possible visit of "Ike" at Edwards with "ET visitors" and some of the other statements coming out from people who also were at Edwards when there were encounters with "craft". I now know what they were talking about. And I believe them to be true.

I am very grateful to the gentleman for relating the information.

Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, Virginia A Round Sphere Above The Trees

Posted: March 5, 2008

Sir, I was just surfing the net and saw this piece of news. I was stationed in NAS Oceana from 2002 to 2005. I can't remember the month now that I saw this round sphere just above the trees. But what occurred was, I went to the back side of the hangar of VFA-37 where I was attached at the time. I was talking to one of my squadron mates. I know that late afternoon there were no flights and everything was quite in the surrounding area. As I look up on the direction of the sky. There just above the trees, a round sphere object appeared out of the cloudless sky as if its force field or invisible shield was suddenly off.

Because me and this guy was talking out there for awhile. When I saw it, I looked and told my squadron mate, Hey! Did you see that. And for sure when he looked up it was gone. And I told him what a just saw, but I guess he never believe me. And when I told people of my experience, they thought it was a joke or something. You know, fighter jets all around, radars, etc. and yet right there, on base. On a patch of trees in-between the flight line, a round sphere just above the tree. If they asked me where I saw it I'll tell them exactly. There might still be residues emitted by the object after two and half years since my retirement. If know one believes me, I don't care, because I saw what I saw. And I hardly believe things until I see it myself. Unexpectedly.

Thank you to the witness for a good report.
