Military officer 'shot an alien' back in 1978

Did George Filer encounter an alien entity ? Image Credit: CC0 Pixabay
A new book has told the story of how Major George Filer encountered and killed an alleged extraterrestrial.
The remarkable story, which has been described in John L. Guerra's new book "Strange Craft: The True Story of an Air Force Intelligence Officer's Life with UFOs", reportedly took place in the early hours of January 18th, 1978 at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

Air Force Major George Filer had been driving through a remote part of the base in a police pickup truck attempting to pursue a mysterious low-flying object that had been observed at around 2 a.m.

After driving around for two hours, he became aware that the object he was pursuing, which was producing an eerie blue-green glow, was in fact directly above him.

The next thing he knew, an entity - which he described as slender and grayish-brown in color - stepped out of the darkness in front of his car where it was illuminated by the headlights.

Filer drew his weapon, ordered the creature to freeze, then fired.

According to his report, the entity succumbed to its wounds and gave off a foul, ammonia-like stench.

The body was later collected by a recovery team from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Filer noted that the men who came for it did not seem particularly surprised by its existence.

"The senior master sergeant runs everything, from who sweeps the floors to organizing the staff schedules and making sure phones and faxes are up and running," he said.

"He was agitated; his face was pale and his eyes were wide open."

When Filer asked him whether the creature had come from another country, the sergeant replied:

"No, it was from outer space, a space alien. There are UFOs buzzing around the planet like mad."

Phil Schneider?  His own family said he was mentally ill.  Conspiracy theorists claim he was murdered because they don't believe a man with missing fingers can asphyxiate himself.

Yep, the Dulce Wars.  Philip Schneider, one of the more notable names in the Dulce Air Force Base stories, allegedly worked as a geological engineer, contracting for the government in its construction of a program known as D.U.M.B., or Deep Underground Military Bases. According to Schneider, this system of bases spans the continental U.S. with over 100 interconnected, subterranean tunnels. Within the Dulce base’s seven levels, Schneider had clearance to construct a system of tunnels under secret service supervision. One day while digging, he and colleagues experienced technical difficulties, a... [More]

It's all rubbish. No need to spend any more than a passing glance and keep moving. Shot an alien indeed.

Strangely, that made me think about the Battle of Palmdale, it's so funny and it's a true story . Think if they had encountered an ovni in the fifties... it would have been a total disaster for humankind, lol ! https://www.warhistoryonline.com/instant-articles/battle-of-palmdale.html

If that happened today it would be a mess. That area certainly isn't 'sparsely populated' any longer.
