Subject: 1986 Dalnegorsk Crash

This is a recent interview from a Russian newspaper.


Russian scientist, V. Dvuzhilni has provided some new
interesting information about the Dalnegorsk Crash (the
internationally famous UFO incident took place in 1986, on
January 29, at 7:55 p.m).

Dalnegorsk is a small mining town in the Far East of Russia.

That January day a reddish sphere flew into this town from the
southeastern direction, crossed part of Dalnegorsk, and crashed
at the Izvestkovaya Mountain (also known as Height or Hill 611,
because of its size).

Dr. Dvuzhilni's conclusion has always been that it was a
malfunctioning alien space probe that crashed into the Hill 611.

The case is described in great detail in Mysterious Sky: Soviet
UFO Phenomenon (2006), the book I co-wrote with Philip Mantle.

The interview is truly interesting, and I hope to have it
translated in the near future (perhaps other UFO UpDates
colleagues will want to have it translated now and have the
capability to do so).

Dr. Dvuzhilni possesses some material objects recovered at the
crash site (for instance, all around the site remnants of silica
rocks were found: splintered (due to exposure to high
temperatures), and "smoky". Many pieces, and a nearby rock,
contained particles of silvery metal, some "sprayed"-like, some
in the form of solidified balls).

It has been reported that Korean and Japanese ufologists have
been quite interested in the case, as it did occur in their

Another interesting detail:

Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda in its December 1, 2000 issue
published an article about the Dalnegorsk case (NLO svili v Primorje

Most interesting was Andrey Pavlovís (the author of the
newspaper article) reference to the fact that in the early 1990s
Russian generals from the anti-aircraft forces became concerned
about the UFO activity in the area, and contacted local UFO
researchers. An exchange of information ensued.

It is newsworthy when a major Russian newspaper mentions such
facts (the author actually quoted Dr. Dvuzhilni, the chief
investigator of the Height 611 UFO crash).
