Video File: Kentucky UFO News Story

You may recall that we wrote about the Strange Death of Capt. Thomas Mantell in our March 2006 Issue. Capt. Mantell was the Air Force pilot from Simpson County, Kentucky who's plane mysteriously crashed while pursuing an unidentified flying object. From that article:

Captain Thomas Mantell was an Air Force pilot born in Simpson County, Kentucky, June 30, 1922. On a routine flight from Georgia to an air base in Kentucky, he was asked to change course and check out reports of a strange object in the skies, sighted by people across Kentucky. What he encountered was described by Mantell in a radio message to base as, "a metallic object or possible reflections of sun from a metallic object, and it is of tremendous size." Several people from Maysville, Kentucky, reported seeing the "strange craft." Twenty minutes later, people from Irvington and Owensboro reported a "circular craft about 250 to 300 feet in diameter" and "moving westward at a pretty good clip." It's about 190 miles from Maysville to Owensboro: 190 miles in twenty minutes is 570 miles per hour.

Recently a news team from Evansville, Indiana did a segment on the story, exploring some of the controversy surrounding the event.
