And the Air Force did receive "numerous reports" of UFOs at Malmstrom on March 24, 1967
And we know for certain that Col. Chase was sent to investigate the one that landed. I don't think this was the first or last time that UFOs visited Malmstrom, since witnesses have said they were interested in it from even before the time that missiles were installed there. Patrick McDonough testified to that at the National Press Club in 2010.
I am glad that they didn't decide to fire off one of those missiles just to see what would happen, since we have evidence that they have they capability of doing so if that was their intention.

I seem to recall that James addressed this somewhere, but I don't recall exactly where. Of course, I could be remembering wrong.
