On This Day… The American Air Force And Unidentified Flying Objects!

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 17th December, back in 1969 when Project Blue Book was terminated, a United States Air Force study of unidentified flying objects. The project began in 1952, and it was the third study of its kind. Blue Book had two goals, to scientifically investigate UFO-related data and determine if UFOs were a threat to national security.

The project collected 12,618 UFO reports and determined that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena or conventional aircraft. Despite popular belief they found no evidence of the existence of extra-terrestrial vehicles or aliens. A tiny percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained. The UFO reports were archived and are available under the Freedom of Information Act. So, what do you think folks? Are you a believer?
