UFO landing at Holloman Air Force Base


It is alleged that in 1955, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower landed his Air Force One on one of the most significant air force bases during the critical period of the Cold War to meet with space visitors who were being accommodated there. Then in 1964, the alien spacecraft returned to that same location and several camera teams on the tarmac and flying over the airbase captured its landing. At the latter incident, air force personnel greeted the aliens as they landed and exited their spacecraft. Some reports assert that the space visitors subsequently stored their UFO in a hangar at the airbase while meeting with U.S. government and air force officials for several days. 

This suggests that aliens have routinely dropped in at Holloman Air Force Base to confer with U.S. government officials since the well-known 1947 UFO crash at Roswell and perhaps are still meeting with them. There have been several witnesses stepping forward claiming that they were present at the airbase in 1955 when the President’s plane, Air Force One, landed to meet with the space visitors.

The following is a well-documented case of alien spacecraft landing at Holloman Air Force Base, in the deserts of New Mexico (USA). Let me relate this story in a chronological order starting with the visit of President Eisenhower to Holloman Air Force Base in 1955 and then explain when the UFO landing was filmed there in 1964. 

The story:

According to reports, when the President’s plane touched-down at Holloman Air Force Base in February of 1955, there were no red carpet reception, no band playing and no honor parade. Very strange since the Commander-in-Chief is usually honored upon arrival to a military base, but this time for some unknown reasons it was different. As about 300 people watched from the tower, base windows, hangar rooftops, workstations and other vantage points, it could be seen very eerie for them to see the President's plane sitting out there almost a half-mile away, alone and quiet. To compound the mystery, airbase personnel were given orders to turn off all radars as long as the President’s plane remains there.

The tower received a telephone report of two unidentified objects passing over Range Road 12. Then a minute later, the objects were seen over Range Road 7 only a few minutes from the runways. The tower personnel using their binoculars were stunned to notice that both crafts had no tails, no wings and no motors. They were just round objects. These objects were approaching the President's plane that was sitting alone on the far runway. The tower personnel knew something big was up. The two objects stopped and hovered about 300 feet (90 meters) over Air Force One, and one of them gently landed about 200 feet (60 meters) ahead of the plane.

The other hovered briefly and then took up a position somewhere above some buildings on the tarmac, which was a good vantage point in case something happens to the other disk on the ground.

Soon after the UFO landed in front of Air Force One, a man many assumed to be the President, came to the doorway of the plane, descended the portable stairs and approached the saucer on the ground. Some sort of a hatch had been opened a few minutes before and had folded down to become a small ramp. The man walked up the ramp, stood briefly at the opening, shook hands with someone and went inside.

Observers thought that the President remained inside the UFO for about 45 minutes. When he emerged from the craft, he walked towards Air Force One. Part of this time, he was facing the observers and most were sure it was President Eisenhower. He wore no hat and many recognized the hairline and his erect military walk.

A witness:

For many years, rumors have circulated that President Eisenhower met with extraterrestrials on a secret trip to Holloman Air Force Base in 1955, and that he entered into secret agreements between the United States government and the cosmic visitors.  The evidence to support this claim has been sparse.  However, a witness named Bill Kirklin, a medic at Holloman Air Force Base, says he was there when such an event took place and that although he did not see anything, his colleagues did.

Mr. Kirklin is positively certain that President Eisenhower did land at Holloman AFB while he was stationed there in 1955. He remembers the circumstances being strange, because normally the President would get a parade, but the parade for this visit was cancelled the previous day.

Kirklin overheard two officers stating that when the President’s plane landed, the airbase tower was ordered to turn off the radar and spoke about seeing an alien autopsy. The officers continued to discuss that when the President’s plane landed, two crafts appeared overhead. One landed in front of the President’s plane and the other hovered overhead, as if it was protecting the other. The President got out of his plane and walked into the craft on the ground.  The President was in the craft for around 45 minutes before coming out and walking back to his airplane.

Later that morning, Kirklin found his commanding officer, Airman Dorsey Moore, who had been missing from his duties.  Moore had his own wild story to tell.  He said that when he went to the Commissary with his wife in the morning, they had seen a large metal disk hovering above the flight line.  Moore said it was 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) wide and it was still there once they left.  Moore told Kirklin that he should go take a look.  Kirklin had to ask permission to leave the hospital, but was told he could not, so he was unable to go look at the disk.  Later in the day, a new Second Lieutenant asked Kirklin whether he had seen anything on the flight line that day. Kirklin said he had not, but told him about what he had heard.

When Kirklin was asked if he was afraid to talk about these matters, Kirklin responded that if he had talked about it thirty years ago, that he might be dead, but he feels safe today because of many others who have come forward to talk about their UFO experiences.

Another witness (a civilian electrician):

It would be appropriate here to bring in a rather interesting report received from a lady whose father was a civilian electrician at the Holloman Air Force Base. He worked out within the base during the day with the electrical crew. He had been an electrician in the army during the Korea War and had gotten the job in 1953 or 1954 because he was a vet.

She said the following:

"We were in Albuquerque at the time. Dad worked there in '54 and came home on weekends. We moved down there in the summer of '54 when I was in the fourth grade. Mom wanted us together. Sometime after Christmas of 1955, dad came home one night kind of shook up. He would tell the story for years when we'd ask him to, and later on, to the grandchildren as well. We called it 'When dad became a fireman.' "

When the daughter was asked if the story got better with the telling each time, she said no, but as he got older, they enjoyed it more because of his gestures.

She continues: "They worked out of a 3/4 pickup with a telephone company truck bed. Dad told us that they could see the President's plane for most of the landing. He said, 'at first, it circled, getting lined up for the runway. We had a view of the runway between some buildings where we were working. We could see about 400 to 500 feet (123 to 152 meters), of it.'

"The plane landed, came through the part they could see. They expected to hear it taxi up to unload, they all wanted to see the President. He then waited and waited. It just stayed out there someplace and shut down its engines. They saw others looking out that way and some men on the roof of a hangar looking to the Southeast. One of the crew suggested that someone climb a pole to report what was going on, so dad volunteered. He strapped on his steel climbers.

"Dad said he had learned to always keep the sun at his back while climbing a pole in order not to get blinded. Dad said he got near the top of the pole and heard someone shout, but did not hear the words. He then saw the truck driving off and some of the crew running toward a hangar. He noticed the men on the roof running back away from the front of the hangar and one pointing out towards the flight line. Dad swung around on the pole to look out on the airfield and see what all the commotion was about.

"Then he said he saw it...this 'pie tin-like thing' heading towards him about 150 yards (137 meters) away. 'And comin' right at me,' he said.

"Dad always said he felt very lonely up there with that thing and decided to come down fast, as he was about 40 feet (12 meters), up. He said he looped his climbing strap out and got down that 40 feet in about five seconds, his steel spikes hitting only occasionally to slow him down.

"Back at the shop when the story was told, he was nicknamed 'the fireman' for getting down that pole so fast. Apparently, soon after this incident, the saucer just stopped and hovered about 300 feet over the flight line while the meeting took place on the far runway near the UFO. Dad said once the people there got over the initial shock, many just stood and watched it.

"He said it was a beautiful sight and it had an occasional wobble. He recalled that later that day many neon lights needed replacing."

(Note: This was apparently the saucer that hovered over the flight line that Airman Dorsey Moore and his wife saw around 8:45-9:00 am).

His daughter said that they all thought it was one of our secret aircraft and the President had come to see it.

She said the following: "Dad said he never considered it anything but ours until years later when the UFO shape got publicized more (in the 1960s or so).  He told us that it was then that he understood what was so secret."

Photograph of UFO over Holloman Air Force Base in 1957:

On October 16, 1957, at 1:30 pm (13.30 hours), Miss Ella Louise Fortune, a Welfare Nurse at Mescalero Apache Indian Reservation, was leaving Tularosa, New México and was driving north on Highway 54. While going over a railroad overpass, she sighted an object to the northwest. Ms. Fortune carefully drove as she watched the object for at least 10 minutes. It was a glowing white flattened egg-shaped object soaring across a clear blue-sky. At about 6 miles (10 kilometers) north of Tularosa, she stopped the car, grabbed her Kodak Pony 135 camera and using a Kodak 135mm Kodachrome film, snapped a color photograph of the UFO hovering over Holloman Air Force Base. She then continued on her way to the Three Rivers Settlement where she checked and visited an Indian patient. The object had appeared to be motionless at all times over Holloman Air Force Base.   

The picture first appeared in the Portales, New Mexico newspaper. When the editor, Mrs. Coral E. Lorenzen, asked Miss Fortune during the interview, whether she felt the object might have been a lenticular cloud, she was very positive that the object was something dense not nebulous and filmy like a cloud and it appeared to emit its own light with a clearly defined edge. Miss Fortune was adamant about the object not being a lenticular cloud. She declared that she has resided in Tularosa Basin for 20 years and familiar with such cloud formations. Her hobby was snapping color photos. She has done a lot of work concentrating particularly on scenery, including sky and clouds.

A preliminary analysis was conducted and was found, upon heightening the contrast that a rim and other contours on the object were brought out, but that the "trail" faded almost to nothing.

Professional mathematicians and analysts employed at Holloman Air Force Base who were familiar with current missile, balloons and parachute research projects, have concluded that their evaluation of the object in the photograph was an unidentified unconventional aerial object.

Now, check this out!

In 1958, a mechanic stationed at Holloman Air Force Base spotted a UFO hovering over a runway and drew the picture shown below. This is one of the many sightings at that airbase since the Roswell UFO crash of 1947. The similarity of this drawing with the UFO shown in the movie frame below is striking. 

The UFO filmed while landing at Holloman Air Force Base in 1964:

On April 24, 1964, at about 5:30 am, three unidentified crafts flew into Holloman's airspace, were tracked on radar and a red alert was sounded. Two military interceptors were scrambled to escort the unidentified craft out of the area. By chance, two cameramen, a technical sergeant and a staff sergeant, of the base photographic team, were aboard a base helicopter on a routine photographic mission at the time and ran off several feet of film of the three objects over Holloman. One of the objects was wobbling as if it were in trouble, broke away and began to oscillate all the way down to the ground. As it did, a second high-speed camera crew set up to photograph a test launch, turned their camera toward the object and ran off approximately 600 feet (183 meters) of 16mm color film.

The cameras continued to roll as the extraordinary vehicle hovered, almost silently; about ten feet off the ground for nearly a minute and then settled down on three extension arms.

The base commander and two officers, along with two base Air Force scientists, arrived to greet the visitors and waited apprehensively. A panel door slid open on the side of the craft and a humanoid figure emerged. Then a second and a third stepped forward, one behind the other. They were human-size, dressed in a tight-fitting jumpsuit and had an odd blue-gray complexion. Their eyes were set far apart with vertical slit pupils like cats and their mouths were thin slit and didn’t have any chins. They had a large pronounced nose. They wore headpieces that resembled rows of a rope-like design, which appeared to be communication devices.  In their hands, they held a sort of "translator."

Arrangements were made with some sort of inaudible communication for their spaceship to be stored in a hangar while they have meetings, for the next several days, with Air Force personnel in buildings #383 and #1382. Left behind stood a stunned group of Air Force staff who were asking themselves; who these visitors were, where they were from and what did they want?

Whatever was discussed at the meetings is unknown to this day, but it is rumored that one of the subjects discussed was that military personnel asked their ET guests if they knew anything about an outer space signal they were monitoring from an alien group? The ETs said no.

"An alien mask?"

What you see here is a picture of a wooden "MASK." Is this mask from an alien face? Each reader could decide what this image really represents. Is it further evidence of UFOs and aliens existence? Ancient artifacts found around the world have suggested that aliens have had contacts with humans for millennium in the past. For some reason, when one sees this mask, it brings back memories of the Fish Gods mentioned in Sumerian legends.

No one knows yet what this "mask" represents. But if it is "alien" in nature, then the question is, is it ancient or modern? If it is modern, could it represent the likeness of the aliens that landed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico of 1964 and conferred with President Eisenhower? If it is ancient, could it then be a rendition of alien contacts of a far distant past?

The original source of this mask: 


The above mentioned sightings at Holloman Air Force Base suggest that space visitors continue to have contacts with the U.S. government.

The U.S. state of New Mexico has been a site of unusual UFO sightings and crashes since the first detonation of the atomic bomb there on July 16, 1945 in the Jornada del Muerto desert about 35 miles (56 km) southeast of Socorro, New Mexico.  It is interesting to note that according to eyewitness accounts in 1947 there were two UFO crashes near Roswell, New Mexico where the U.S. government supposedly recovered alien bodies and the UFOs. These two crashes occurred not far from the first detonation of the atomic bomb.  

Could it be possible that the first detonation of the atomic bomb in New Mexico prompted the aliens to leave their undersea and underground bases for fear that this planet, where they have lived for millenniums, would be destroyed and then flew around to find out exactly what was happening in the area?

Moreover, Socorro, New Mexico (as noted above) is where Police Officer Lonnie Zamora spotted a landed UFO on April 24, 1964, which is exactly the same day when an alien spacecraft landed at Holloman Air Force Base and several camera teams on the tarmac and flying over the airbase captured its landing.

You can read about Lonnie Zamora’s encounter here:

What seems to have been overlooked with this particular event is the appearance of the entities that reportedly disembarked from the craft, the so-called "large-nosed aliens" or "large-nosed grays." According to the descriptions (and artist's impressions), these entities don't look anything like "grays" at all.

Only a handful of UFO researchers over the years have mentioned these "large-nosed aliens." Some speculated they come from Betelgeuse in the constellation of Orion. Some speculate that a treaty was signed with these visitors and that three (or more) humans left the Earth with them. Some also speculate that the more commonly known "grays" are manufactured by and are subservient to another alien species - possibly these "large-nosed aliens." No doubt, you have heard some of these theories before…

Post a Comment


Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.
