"The U.S. Air Force, the Department of Defense and the Federal Aviation Agency were involved with UFO-jet interceptions and were greatly concerned by the growing number of radar tracking of UFOs reported from the Eglin AFB, Florida; from the Baer Air Force Base, Fort Wayne,Indiana; from FAA radar at San Antonio, Texas; from Civil Defense radar in Columbia, Mississippi, from Ft. Sill, Oklahoma; from Bahia Blanca, Argentina and from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Pilot reports of UFOs were often reported by both commercial and military pilots from Braniff, Eastern, Pan American, Delta Airlines, Colorado NORAD Air Force pilots, BOAC, TWA, Bell Huey Jet Helicopters,Scandinavian Airlines, private Australian and Missouri pilots. General George S. Brown, U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff admitted for the first time that UFOs had triggered many air, sea, land battles earlier in Vietnam. The DOD and FAA issued new UFO regulations, and the USAF started two new UFO studies, code-named Old New Moon and Blue Paper.
In the meantime a large number of UFO photographs and movie film were taken in 1973 in North Carolina, Alabama, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, S.C., Italy, Peru, Missouri, Tennessee, Washington State and Australia - which are still being evaluated and analyzed. Electro-magnetic interferences with car motors, headlights, houselights, CB radios, TV, radio, magnometers and other communication devices were widely reported in conjunction with UFO encounters, as were numerous cases of severe animal reactions and human physiological effects.
UFO-related power failures (documented over the past almost 3 decades) again cropped up time and time again in 1973 on March 14 in
Piedmont, Missouri; on May 26 in Morwell, Australia; on June 28 in Columbia, Missouri; on September 10 in Atlanta, Georgia; on October 16 in Yazoo, Mississippi and on November 11 in Farmville, Louisiana ... just to mention a few of the growing incidents on a global basis.
At UFO landing sites impressions and ground markings such as burned 20 to 30 foot circles, tripod landing-gear marks, background radiation increases above normal, chemical soil changes, denuded vegetation and dehydrated and depressed areas have been found, along with many deposits of both metallic and non-metallic fragments. Many reported ammonia, sulfur-like and ozone odors near UFOs."
