NSW Man Filmed UFOs And Quizzed By ‘Men In Black’

There’s a movie screening in Sydney next week sure to polarise its audience. It’s called Australien Skies. It’s a documentary about some of the unexplained stuff seen by people who call themselves skywatchers.

The timing is good. Earlier this month Russian billionaire Yuri Milner announced he would spend at least $US100 million ($138m) to see if there really is anything “out there”. Australia will contribute to the effort using the CSIRO’s Parkes radio telescope.

There is an intriguing story in the documentary from Kiama told by Liam Freaney. He’s a builder, married with two kids and is a pretty regular kind of guy who, two years ago, had no particular interest in UFOs or staring up at the heavens.

But in March 2013, he and a workmate saw in the daylight, bright stars gathering around a ball of white light which disappeared and reappeared before being approached by what he describes as a F18 Super Hornet. Then everything vanished. A few months later he started seeing objects regularly and bought a video camera to film them. But then things, he says, took a slightly sinister turn. Helicopters started hovering low over his house.

This image is representative only. It shows a typical UFO photo report. What are these strange things seen and photographed all over the world by people from all walks of life?

“I would see and film an object then directly afterwards I would get home and a helicopter would show up and sit over the house,” he said. “So I started filming the helicopters as well as the unidentified flying objects. It happened over and over again, 20 or 30 times at least. “When they hover the height of a lamp post above your house and lean out the window it’s definitely not military training.”

“These things will go invisible in front of you then reappear then shoot across the sky into a pinprick and then come straight back in front of you at incredible speed. Maybe I have filmed something I shouldn’t have. That’s a possibility.” He got in touch with Damien Nott and with Mariana Flynn, president of UFO Research NSW. She said they had reports of black helicopters flying over numerous homes. “There have been reports of people leaning out of the helicopter with a camera and filming,” she said.

Mr Freaney was last year going to give a talk about his experience to her UFO group. The event had been publicised on the internet. It was two weeks before the talk and he was near home when he noticed a car behind him.

The enigmatic ‘Men In Black’ are almost as old as the modern day reports themselves

“It had flashing lights inside the front grill. It was a black car. I stopped. Two guys got out of the black Holden Statesman with a Canberra plate. “One approached the window and he said: ‘Good day Liam, how are you?’ I said ‘This is really strange.’ He said: ‘Yep, but you know what it is about. We’d like it if you didn’t do your talk.’ They said it would be better off for me to keep my mouth shut and to have a good day and then left.” He decided it might be wise not to give the talk. Now he has changed his mind.

“I am well aware of the situation I am putting myself in,” he said. “The purpose of this whole two and a half years of contact that has happened to me I believe is for me to pass on the message that it is happening and that it is real. The only thing I have got out of it is to tell people what I am seeing.”  Source; SMH

Editor’s Comments:

Look, pragmatically… Ya gotta wonder what the whole (real?) story is here and if we’re not over-playing the given ‘facts’ (read: jumping to conclusions) … not being given the real facts or the video itself over embellishes what was actually seen.

We’re being asked to believe that, out of the blue, and with no past history, a nondescript builder… a joe average guy if you will from an outer NSW city suburb has been filming, regularly, strange aerial phenomena over and around his home, THEN being followed by what is suggested to be ‘MIB’s’ and having surveillance copters hover over his rooftops with ‘suspicious’ individuals leaning out etc etc.

Watching the video was interesting and quite enlightening until the emergence and endorsement of Ms Flynn who has a colourful history of exaggerated claims, and conspiratorial involvements/beliefs in this subject. Sorry, its just a little too messy for me at this stage. We’re missing a piece of the pie here.

 

If you see a UFO, don’t call the RAAF

If you happen upon a weird flying object, possibly not of this world, do not bother calling the air force. Where once the RAAF would investigate reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) – which it terms unusual aerial sightings (UAS) – it now refers such reports to specialist UFO watchers.

That is unless it has defence, security or public safety implications, which could include crashing aircraft or space debris falling to earth. Defence instructions relating to UAS – released under freedom of information and published on the defence website – say its UFO function officially ended in 1996.

“Scientific records suggested there was no compelling reason for the RAAF to continue to devote resources to recording and investigating of UAS,” one document says. But that apparently has not got through to the public, with the RAAF issuing fresh instructions to duty officers at air bases such as Richmond.

“Members of the community who seek to report a UAS to RAAF personnel will be referred to a civil UFO research organisation in the first instance,” it says in a document dated July 2015. It provides a list of known UFO organisations. Reports of burning aircraft or space debris should be referred to police or civil aviation authorities.   Source: SBS
