Subject: Roy Wimmer Passes


I just learned from Brad Sparks that Roy Wimmer, one of the key
witnesses from the 1953 Santa Barbara Channel case, passed away
last week (on the 12th, I believe).

I may be wrong, but I think he was the last surviving witness.

The info on the case can be found at:


In his report on the incident for Lockheed, Wimmer wrote:

"I was watching it all the time so I was able to see it for
several seconds after the rest of the crew had lost sight of it.
Right up until the time it disappeared it maintained its sharp
outline and definite shape so I know it was not a cloud that
dissolved... I am convinced this was a large object some
distance away."

My condolences to Mr. Wimmer's family.

Best regards,
Paul Kimball
