>Dear Mark,

I am sorry if I offended you. I very much appreciate the
thoroughness of the material you and Don L. have provided me.
Your work seems to be a careful, thorough compilation of UFO
reports. I didn't know you had compiled so much research on the
classifications and reports of UFOs. I especially like the
layout of the material and the graphics you provided.

After you read this message from me and note the responses from
other members on this list to it, you may also come to
appreciate my paranoia.

Enough. Down to work, back on task.

I still am not sure what I saw, but it does appear to be some
sort of unconventional aircraft, manufactured by other than
human intelligence, even if the craft was being piloted by

I make these wild  assumptions based solely on the information
that Don L. and you have given me. If a comparison were to be
made between the aircraft I saw and whatever known aircraft is
currently manufactured by humans, it would appear that we are "a
bit behind in technology."

I think I hear Don L. Did you say, "Duh"?

The descriptions, photos and drawings helped, but didn't quite
hit the mark. I did notice that the photo of the Boomerang
aircraft shared one thing in common with the aircraft I saw.
They both would have appeared to be "cloaked" If those lights
hadn't been placed where they were on the Boomerang.

I had a very difficult time seeing any outline of the Boomerang
in the photo, let alone any projections, or wings.

That is what I meant when I said in answer to your question
about the shape of the aircraft I saw, "try as I could to
concentrate on seeing the shape, or wings, I could not... there
was no value difference between the background and the vehicle."
And, according to the reports you provided me, I was closer than
any of the other reported observers. I did not see any rim of
lights around the aircraft, just that one blinking red light.
There was no sound, no smell, no rushing of air. I had no ill

I did not tell you what the 2 individuals looked like that I saw
in the aircraft, because some of it is vivid in my memory. The
one thing that disturbs me is that I cannot recall what their
eyes looked like. I do remember being surprised that their heads
seemed in proportion to the rest of their bodies...which from
past experience with Greys was not the case. I wanted to keep
that to myself. I was surprised to learn that most of the
descriptions given by the reported observers matched my
observations very closely.

If I were to guesstimate the height and weight of the occupant
who walked from the front to the rear of the aircraft, I would
say he was 130-135 lbs., and about 5'9". He had to bend his head
slightly to avoid hitting the top of the canopy. I could see
only the head and upper torso of the pilot (who was sitting
down) right up in front, within 2' of the canopy.

When the aircraft tilted back, I saw the angle and arc of the
dashboard, and I saw no controls, levers, buttons or lights.

Unfortunately, I could not tell from the drawing you provided
how big the aircraft was perceived to be in relation to the
occupants. The canopy in that drawing did not seem long enough,
compared to what I saw.

The one occupant I saw walking from the front to the rear went
about 10'-15' before he was no longer visible through the

I would be interested in seeing the drawing you mentioned having
by Hillary Evans. I probably should draw you a picture too. I
used to be a pretty good artist. But when I try drawing UFO
stuff, it begins to look like I never took an art class...and
I'm embarassed to admit now that art was my initial major!
