For Canadian readers...

Candadian documentary creator David Cherniack's The Moncla
Memories will be broadcast this week on VisionTV in Canada.

David wrotee, in an e-mail:

"The Moncla Memories is an enquiry into the extraordinary
memories of Gord Heath, a Canadian computer systems engineer who
has recollections of a prior life as Gene Moncla, the captain of
a USAF fighter jet that was lost intercepting a UFO over Lake
Superior in November 1953.

This one hour film is an exploration of the nature of unusual
memories and, by extension, all memory. It was shot during my
four month odyssey last summer driving 18000 miles around North
America in an RV. I was shooting a two hour documentary on the
cultural history of the UFO Phenomenon to be broadcast on the
History Channel next year and I became aware of Gord Heath's
story while researching the Kinross incident. I thought it
deserved its own film."

The film will be broadcast on VisionTV (only in Canada)
Saturday 31st March and Monday 2nd April at 10pm. EDT



The Moncla Memories

All in One Films

In the early evening of November 23, 1953 a USAF F-89 jet was
scrambled from Kinross AFB in Sault St. Marie, Michigan to
intercept an unknown target over Lake Superior. As it approached
the 'bogey' its radio transmissions, according to one radar
operator who watched the incident, became increasingly jumbled
by static. The two blips merged on the radar scope over Canadian
waters. The single blip moved off to the North West and then

Lt. Felix Eugene Moncla, the pilot, his radar operator, Lt.
Robert L. Wilson, and their F-89 fighter were never seen again.
The official USAF accident report stated their plane had crashed
intercepting an RCAF C-47 transport flying 30 miles off course.
The RCAF and the pilot of the C-47 claimed they were right on
course and had never seen the jet.

Gord Heath recalls many strange events occurring throughout his
life. Heath, a computer systems engineer presently living in
Vancouver, was born in Fort William in the Spring of 1954, about
nine months after the Kinross incident. After a UFO sighting in
1999 he became interested in the UFO phenomenon and he began
reading up on its history. When he came across the Kinross
Incident bells went off. It resonated with many of the strange
occurrances stretching back to his early childhood as if it was
connecting all the dots. It prompted Gord to do a flurry of
research. He mounted his own web site and began to devote his
vacation time to visiting the places where Gene Moncla had
lived. And the memories began to come...not just vague images,
but detailed recollections of the life of Gene Moncla and, even
stranger, the detailed recollection that Gene Moncla was his
genetic father.

Heath makes no truth claim about his memories.

He is fully aware of the confabulating abilities of the mind.
Nevertheless, what he 'recalls' tells an fascinating story about
reincarnation, UFOs, and how we give meaning to our lives. And
through genetic testing one crucial aspect of the story, his
relationship to Moncla, is verifiable. Should the test be
negative, the story still tells us much about the enigma of
memories and the human mind... and its extraordinary creative,
and maybe even transpersonal, abilities.
