I am wrapped in a mix of emotions over this documentary. For
those of you who do not know I have been researching the Kinross
case for well over a decade compiling and collecting information
regarding the incident. I met with Gord a few years back when he
visited me in Detroit to look through and obtain copies of my


He seemed a well-intentioned and informed researcher who
provided, very importantly, some closure for the family of Gene

We discussed his 'memories' of Gene and I pointed out at the
time that although his concepts on the subject were interesting
I could - tongue in cheek - make the case that I was the other
man in the plane, Robert Wilson. I quickly pointed out that my
grandfather called me Robert - which I still don't understand
since my name is John - that I was living on Wilson Street. When
I was growing up I was fascinated by Lake Superior and the Air
Force and UFOs, that my favorite song while growing up was Perry
Como's Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes", which I only later
found out was the number one hit song in 1953... etc. Gord and I
shared some information and laughs and parted ways.

Now I find myself in a quandary because as a researcher I would
like to see all information released on the Kinross case. But I
wonder at the unintentional damage that can be done by doing a
documentary on Gord's memories and the Kinross case... not just
the Kinross case. Granted Gord's story is interesting but the
story of what happen that night and over the course on the
investigation is more than compelling without having to move
into the realm of reincarnation/cryptonesia.

I wish Gord well and I hope the documentary sparks further
conversations and investigations into Kinross but I hope that we
don't get sidetracked with Gord's personal mystery when Kinross
itself still remains unsolved.
