THE MYSTERY BENEATH – WILL THE TRUTH SURFACE?

TMB - FW2

LAYING 300 FEET BELOW THE OCEAN’S
SURFACE IS POSSIBLY A DISCOVERY THAT COULD
CHANGE THE WORLD.

THE MYSTERY IS IT REALLY A CRASHED UFO?
“While roaming the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland in search of sunken treasures, the men aboard the Ocean Explorer came across a strange, massive object on their sonar. In a documentary filled with the tension and excitement of deep sea adventure, we follow the treasure hunters as they navigate threats both known and unknown to unravel the mystery of this extraordinary discovery.”
Amazon Prime

On June 19, 2011 did Treasure Hunters Peter Lindberg, Dennis Asberg and the Ocean X Team unexpectedly find the ultimate treasure? Is it possible that the picture above captured an object that may be the much sought after Holy Grail of UFOLOGY, a 180 foot wide, crashed UFO? This is an absolutely fascinating, fact-filled,  documentary with excellent production values.

It’s got a small touch of reality TV drama, but it avoids the usual scripted  nonsense that a good number of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation shows suffer from.

Peter Linberg comments on what the recovered radar signatures
might be revealing.

The discovery proves to be an emotional roller-coaster ride for the Ocean X Team as they battle a hostile press while they desperately try to raise money for another deep-sea expedition to the site. But despite the many odds, they succeed in doing so.

The resulting actual footage of this second expedition to the anomaly is incredible. As well as the Diver’s reported side-effects they experienced while exploring the object close-up.

IT’S RATING: 5 Charley’s.
By all consideration, this is a must see documentary.
Near the end of the video a startling revelation is made when data, that was damaged, is recovered.  Upon examination, it adds an even bigger puzzle piece to the mystery.  At the end, the Ocean X Team
is filmed meeting with people, who all of a sudden, are very interested in what they have found.
Guess who?

U.F.O. UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS THE TRUE STORY OF THE FLYING SAUCERS – FREE

UFO1956PI
The most amazing thing about this film is the fact that it was made with the full cooperation of the United States government, and every scrap of evidence it presents was made available to any and all scientific agencies who wanted to examine it. Watch it and make up your own mind about UFO’s — but you’ll lose some sleep over it before you do.
BLURB FROM THE Ufo Bevy YOUTUBE CHANNEL

THIS IS HOW U.F.O. OPENS:
“The motion picture you are about to see is true.
It is not fiction. Much of the information in it has never been told.
You will see it for the first time.”

THIS IS HOW U,F.O ENDS:

RATING:  5 Charley’s – PLUS!
The promotional material for U.F.O. promises that this is “The Motion Picture Scoop of the Century!” Other copy points state: NOW! THE TRUTH ABOUT FLYING SAUCERS! And “SEE IT ALL AS IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!and is still happening!” Additionally, one of the credit lines cites “With the people who actually lived the story of the U.F.O.”

LARGEDARD
The lobby card features the “TOP SECRET” Nick Mariana’s film. The Utah UFO fleet that Navy Chief Photographer Delbert Newhouse filmed. The unfortunate Mantell tragedy. The Washington D.C. aerial swarm “invasion” of 1952, and other dramatic UFO events.

In short, this film promises to be a bombshell, and in truth it is! There is no way you can watch this documentary and not come away with the impression that, way back in 1956, the United States Air Force was openly admitting that U.F.O.s were indeed real.  And reputable witnesses by the dozens were seeing, and also filming strange things in the skies.

#4
The original Press Kit for the movie. Notice the “newsy” editorial look. This design technique gives it a “torn from today’s headline” immediacy.

They weren’t ready to take the leap of faith required to make a guess that they are interplanetary in origin, but it appears, they were considering that option among other possible solutions. Except for one sighting that is debunked as the planet Jupiter, all the other sightings and films in the movie pass their rigorous investigations and are found to be “unexplained.”

MANTELL
The movie features the tragic death of Captain Mantell, but does nothing to try to explain it away. Years later, however the official verdict was “Mantell lost consciousness while chasing a weather balloon, causing him to crash.”

So the question this video poses is, what made the Air Force go from this open and serious cooperative investigation stance in 1956 to an official policy of complete dismissal and ridicule of UFO reports the carries though to today?

ALC
At the end of the documentary, Albert M. Chop, states his belief that UFOs are a “real, physical phenomenon of unknown origin.” Chop is portrayed by Tom Towers, who was the Aviation reporter for the Los Angeles Examiner. He personally knew Chop before being cast
in the movie.

“There was something up there in that sky, and if they were not balloons, I don’t know what to think.”  So says the character,  Albert M. Chop in this 1956 documentary.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW FROM 1956
THE fact that truth can be more engrossing than fiction is quietly and effectively demonstrated in “Unidentified Flying Objects,” which landed at the Mayfair yesterday. Clarence Greene and Russell Rouse the producers, reportedly assembled their material over a period of two years. They have re-created in black-and-white and in heretofore classified color footage of “flying saucers” the astounding events that have perplexed and/or frightened civilians and the military alike since 1947.

The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience: The True Story of the World’s
First Documented Alien Abduction
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
(Betty and Barney Hill’s niece.)
CAPTURED
Almost 60 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill case or alien experiences in general, Captured! will give you the answers you’re searching for. The 1961 abduction of the Hills stirred worldwide interest, primarily because of the book The Interrupted Journey, the subsequent media coverage, and a 1975 TV movie, The UFO Incident. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today. But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told…until now.

How to Defend Yourself Against Alien Abduction
By Ann Druffel
ANN DBKC
In 1988 Ann Druffel, who has researched UFOs for 40 years, discovered a little-known fact that had been drowned in abduction hysteria–documented evidence that people have successfully fended off attack by the “greys,” the short, big-eyed aliens now familiar through so much popular media. Using her database of 250 case studies, including 70 “resisters,” Druffel has ascertained 9 techniques that witnesses use to ward off alien entities and even break off abductions in progress. And perhaps even more astonishing, this evidence points to the possible true identity of the greys and their link to the abducting entities of myth and folklore.

Fact, Fiction, and Flying Saucers: The Truth Behind the Misinformation, Distortion, and Derision by Debunkers, Government Agencies, and Conspiracy Con-men
by Stanton T. Friedman and Kathleen Marden
SFKMBK
The mainstream media has misinformed us for years about UFO studies conducted by highly regarded scientists associated with some of the finest universities in the country. There is significant evidence that the U.S. government has covered up the alien presence through misinformation, distortion, obfuscation, and ridicule. Some prominent, politically connected scientists have engaged in the cover up. And a few professional writers have helped to successfully label any scientists who have been persuaded by the evidence and brave enough to take a stand as unscientific charlatans, fanatics, and kooks.

THE BANNED DISNEY UFO DOCUMENTARY

SECRET ST POST IMAGE

On one evening in March of 1995, without warning, Disney aired a family special. It turned out to be a documentary so controversial that it was pulled from the airwaves and banned from ever being shown again. This is the thrilling story of Alien Encounters from New Tomorrowland! The Banned Disney Documentary on UFOs and Alien Abductions!
Blurb from the YouTube Channel, Secret Screening.

RATING:  5 Charley’s.
This may have been the case of the “Disney Imagineers”  doing their jobs too well. I can hear the creative brief now. “Tear it from today’s headlines! Make it real! Make it scary! Make it really socko kiddos so we can blow the rubes otta’ their seats!”

Ultimately, the Imagineers inadvertently wound up recreating the famous 1938 Orson Wells radio play broadcast of the H.G.Wells novel, “War of the Worlds.” This show, although it was announced several times during the broadcast that it was fiction, lead to a country wide Martin invasion panic.*

But this time around, the Disney TV special insinuated that full disclosure by the government was coming soon and that Aliens from other planets are indeed real. Not only are they real, but they are going to abduct and subject you to extreme physical and psychological trauma. Especially the Reptilians and the Mantis people. Except for the nice Aliens that is. They’re the ones that will take you for rides to other planets.

Fostering this sensationalized thesis, was the filmmaker’s excellent interviews with the many luminaries from Ufology, Capt. Kevin Randall and Bob Hopkins to name a few. Then add the terrifying testimony of actual abductees and UFO photos and film footage to visually drive the message home. This all lead to the viewers being taken on a “jump-to-conclusion panic ride.” This was certainly not what the Imagineers would have imagined would happen.
