>Arizona UFO: Phoenix Lights Return?
>By Jon Shanks

>Phoenix residents again lit up police switchboards and news
>hotlines as bright stationary lights were again visible south of

>Now nearly ten years later, the city is buzzing over another

The large bright flares typically last about 5 minutes.

UFO investigators ought to be all over Davis Montahn AFB in
Tucson to find out of a national guard unit has done it again!

>CK Rairden contributed to this report.

Wonder if this could be "Chuck" Rairdon, one of the video
tapers of the March 13, 1997 event.
