I'm never disappointed when I ask you for more information.
Pleasure mate. That article agrees with my personal conclusion, but I had not considered that people were calling this a hoax, and now the UFO references have me wondering. I did not realise that both Dad and Son were UFO buffs until today. Like you say, it's a bit to take in at once.
But I think my initial conclusions of a crash probably remains the most likely option. But good to look at all the angles. I see the UFO as less likely each time a new snippet is uncovered. One interesting theory has him crashing into a light house. The pictures (Manifold Photos) I find have little relevance to Valentichs disappearance. The connection is contrived.
