Interview With HBCCUFO Chair Brian Vike
Milton Frank President
The Brazilian Ufology Center

1 - Why did you start to study and search Ufology? Have you ever
seen an UFO? If so, how was your experience?

I started to look into the UFO topic due to the interest I have
had for so many years prior to me getting involved. I have
always been a Sci-Fi nut and have always had an interest in
astronomy. Many years ago I was a member of the Royal
Astronomical Society of Canada and also a member of the American
Association of Variable Star Observers. I also used to volunteer
at the Planetarium in Vancouver at that time. Due to having a
lot of time on my hands I thought I would create a small website
like so many others dealing on the UFO subject, from that point
on it grew to where it is now, receiving hundreds and hundreds
of sighting reports each year. I have been witness to a UFO, or
something that neither I nor anyone else could explain. Video
footage was taken by a lady just west of town and I must say it
was a very unusual experience.

2 - Could you explain to us what HBCCUFO is? How did it start?
What is HBCC mission?

HBCC stands for Houston, British Columbia Canada which is where
I reside. I work out of a small town called Houston in the
northwestern part of British Columbia, Canada. HBCC UFO Research
started as explained above, from having lots of time on my hands
and of course the interest I have on the topic. I guess HBCC
UFO's mission is like anyone else's, to bring forward as much
information on the UFO subject as possible and always hoping we
might finally find an answer to the mystery.

3 - What are the main cases researched by HBCCUFO?

There have been a number of excellent cases in which I have
received, the one that stands out are the Missing Time case
which comes from Kelowna, British Columbia where two ladies
witnessed an object hovering a head of them on the highway, and
this led to missing time and physical and medical problems which
continue to this day. There really has been so many, reports
from the military, over 200 witnesses to one sighting and the
list could go on and on.

4 - In your opinion what is the most important UFO CASE in
Canada? Why do you believe so?

Well there have been a number of good cases over the years that
have taken place in Canada; Shag Harbor comes to mine, due to
the amount of creditable witnesses to the event, which did
involve the police, military and everyday folks.

5 - Canada is a large country. There are several UFO cases in
Canada too. Do you know if the Canadian UFO groups has been
keeping data base for all Canadian UFO cases? If so, how has
been doing this job?

You're sure correct, Canada is a huge country and there have
been stacks of UFO cases all across this land. Actually there is
not a database just for Canadian sighting reports. I mean not
one area where visitors can go to read every UFO case reported
by the many UFO groups across Canada. There is a Canadian UFO
Survey which totals up all of the cases for each year, but we do
not get to read the entire reports which are not posted online
anywhere. Just this past year, in 2006 I personally received I
believe 275 UFO reports.

6 - Now a day people a sure about UFO phenomena. Some people
think that UFOS are military secret projects; some people do
believe that UFOS come from another planet somewhere in the
space. What is your opinion about it?

My thoughts on this question is that many folks are correct,
some reports are of military projects, normal everyday aircraft,
balloons and from stars to planets and the list goes on. Now if
UFOs come from another planet, I honestly could not answer this
as I do not have the facts on this. Personally I do feel that we
can't be the only life in the vastness out there.

7 - Now a day it's very common to find UFO religions, UFOLAND in
Canada, Spiritual Ufology (Ashtar Sheran), and a lot of people
believe on those things. What is your opinion about it? Do you
believe in those things?

This question is an easy one for me to answer, personally I do
not believe in any of this. I have had people telephone me
saying there were with the Ashtar Command, etc. I hung up! They
have not provided me with one ounce of proof as to what they say
if true.

8 - Does Canadian government share UFO information or hide them?
Can people talk openly about UFO with Canadian Government and

It is hard to say what the Canadian government is giving all of
us disclosure on all of the UFO information. Yes we have the
Freedom of Information Act here in which we can request and
receive UFO related documents. Matter of fact I have received
many such documents from the Canadian government. But are they
telling us the entire story, this is of course hard to know. As
for talking openly to the government about UFOs, not really
because in their opinion they do not exist.

9 - Can you tell us the top 10 cases of World Ufology in your

There are many good cases that have happened worldwide, but I
think there have been some excellent cases which go by without
notice. Or at least don't get any media or attention when they
are just as good.

10 - What would you say to a young man that intends to be an
Ufology searcher? What are the most important points that an
Ufology searcher has to learn to do a good job?

Here is where I may differ from other UFO investigators and
researches. It doesn't take a lot to become a Ufology searcher
as far as I am concerned. A young man or woman can enter the
field of Ufology with just some simple ideas, such as treat
every witness with respect, protect their identity, and most of
all make sure they reply to a witness who writes or calls. The
rest they will learn along the way and come up with what works
best for themselves. I have never had any personal training from
any group; I hadn't a clue how to go about investigating a UFO
sighting. But one learns fast if one has a passion for the
topic. Also because I do get asked a lot, be willing to spend a
lot of time and your own money looking into the subject.

11 - Do you read about Brazilian Ufology Cases? What Brazilian
cases do you know? What do you think about them?

I have read the odd Brazilian Ufology Case, but not many of them
as I just don't get a chance to due to the amount of reports
that come into me here at HBCC UFO Research. I am sure there are
many fascinating cases going on, and being looked at. Most of
the time I just don't hear about them would be another reason. I
know Brazilian Cases would be welcomed on my website so visitors
to my site could see what is happening all around the world.

12 - What is your opinion about Ufology future?

I hope people will continue to carry on where we all leave off
and maybe one day find the truth to the questions we all ask.

I guess my message to the Brazilian Ufology Center would be to
keep up the good work you folks are doing. Also it would be
excellent to hear more of the cases that are coming out of the
