    Default The Valentich Plane Mystery - Breakthrough?

    Somewhat reminiscent of the Philadelphia Experiment where a UFO would have materialized at the wrong time in the wrong spot:

    Farmer may hold UFO clue to 36-year Valentich plane mystery

    INVESTIGATORS have shed new light on one of ­Australia’s greatest aviation mysteries.

    Almost 36 years to the month that Victorian pilot Fred Valentich vanished without a trace, an independent researcher says there is evidence suggesting the 20-year-old’s Cessna was spotted in the sky over South Australia — attached to a UFO.

    The Victorian UFO ­Action group wants help to identify a farmer near Adelaide who reportedly ­witnessed the 30m craft hovering over his property the morning after Mr Valentich went missing.

    It is claimed the Cessna was stuck to the side of the craft, leaking oil. The farmer even scratched the plane’s registration number on to his tractor but never came forward with the information because he was ridiculed by the few friends he told.

    The theory has sparked furious debate as the nation’s leading UFO investigators prepare for a national conference in Melbourne next month.

    Frederick Valentich.

    Lead investigator George Simpson, one of the last people to see the plane in the sky, says the farmer, if still alive, might have information to solve the mystery.

    He conceded there was no proof, but said it was the best new lead for a case that had intrigued Australians for decades. “It’s easy for some to dismiss, but there are corroborating stories confirming that there was a UFO near Adelaide at the time,” Mr Simpson said.

    Mr Valentich had been on a routine cargo flight to King Island in October 1978 when he disappeared.

    In his last conversation with air traffic control, he ­reported an object hovering in front of him and said it was “not an aircraft’’. It was the last thing Mr Valentich said before a strange metallic clicking sound was heard and the transmission stopped.

    Extensive searches failed to find any trace of the plane or the pilot.

    “This was an experienced pilot who should have been able to identify another aircraft but was clearly unable to,” Mr Simpson said.

    Adding to the mystery, an amateur photo taken in the area that evening shows a dark unidentifiable shape in the sky.

    Investigators are also trying to find a copy of Valentich’s final transmission that was originally aired on Melbourne radio station 3XY.

    The Valentich case will be among a string of Aussie X-files to be discussed when the Victorian UFO Action group hosts its “Age of Reason” conference on September 6.

    Gosh, this happened so long ago. Adelaide in South Australia is a bit further away but I remember reports that military craft were dispatched from South Australia as well; also that the recordings of the exchange between Valentich and Air traffic control was messed with.

    This article appeared in the Melbourne Herald Sun in April this year to mark the 36 year anniversary of the disappearance.

    • The Mysterious Disappearance Of Pilot Frederick Valentich Discussed By Ufo Researcher Paul Norman:

    • Guido Valentich on the disappearance of his pilot son Frederick after reporting a UFO, 1978

    • Farmer witnessed Cessna plane stuck to a large UFO day after pilot Frederick Valentich disappeared:

    • 11-08-22 George Simpson, The Frederick Valentich UFO Incident:

    Guest George Simpson witnessed the initial part of the final flight of Frederick Valentich on October 21st, 1978 from his family home in Beaumaris. This led him into deep research and his recent release of his book, Nothing on Radar: The Valentich Mystery. amazon.com/Nothing-Radar-Valentich-George-Simpson/dp/B0B8H967PR
    • Biography:
    George Simpson was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. He has had a life-long interest in the subject of UFOs since seeing one together with his sisters in 1967. He read the book “UFO's, Where do they come from?” by Richard Tambling in 1969 while in primary school. He witnessed the initial part of the final flight of Frederick Valentich on October 21st, 1978 from his family home in Beaumaris. He became a member of VUFORS (The Victorian UFO Research Society) in 1987, just after the Knowles Case was reported in the news. He later joined the VUFORS committee as a photographic consultant, listed as “Photographic Officer” in 1992, and served on that committee for the following 8 years. He then set up the Victorian branch of AUFORN (The Australian UFO Research Network) in 2000, ran investigations and followed up hundreds of sighting reports over the next 14 years, and ran four public meetings each year for that period, as the Director for the state of Victoria. During this period he also wrote a regular column titled “What Next” which was followed by “Now Then” for the Ufologist Magazine, from 2000 until the magazine closed in February 2018. He participated in the research, assistance and filming of the first episode of the Science Channel production of “Unexplained Files” in March 2013, which examined the Valentich mystery. He closed AUFORN Victoria in 2014, following the closure of AUFORN in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia. He began writing this book on the Valentich case in March 2017 after a member of the local group, Victorian UFO Action (VUFOA), Ron White, suggested the idea.
