SHANE RYAN is a teacher, writer, researcher and federal public servant in Australia. He has worked at Charles Sturt University, the University of Canberra, and the Australian National University, all in Canberra. Shane has worked as an information officer and researcher at the Embassy of Japan in Canberra, and he has also taught in schools in Japan and Australia. Shane completed a Diploma of Japanese Studies at Nanzan University, Nagoya, Japan; a Bachelor of Theology at Sydney College of Divinity, Sydney; a Master of Arts at Australian Catholic University, Canberra; and a Graduate Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language and Foreign Language Teaching at the University of Canberra. He was working as a barristers’ clerk in Melbourne when he first heard about the incredible 1966 Westall Flying Saucer Incident in that city, for which he has now become the lead researcher. Shane was the principal researcher and narrator for the documentary on the Westall Incident, Westall ’66: A Suburban UFO Mystery, which was first broadcast on the Australian Sci Fi Channel in 2010. Shane has since made a serious study of other school-based UFO sightings around the world, such as the 1967 Crestview Elementary School Incident in Opa-Locka, Florida, USA, and other Australian sightings, from the 1960s era. Shane was instrumental in convincing local government authorities to establish Australia’s – and possibly the world’s – first UFO park and playground based on real events, at Westall in 2013, as a way of commemorating the events there. Shane appeared in both seasons of Discovery Channel Canada’s Close Encounters series, in the National Geographic UK TV Channel’s Invasion Earth series, Australia’s Network Ten’s Studio Ten program’s anniversary special on Westall, and on Japan’s Fuji TV Network’s What’s This? – Mysteries from Around the World program. He was also interviewed for James Fox’s upcoming feature documentary film The Phenomenon. There are also several TV and film producers currently planning projects to bring the Westall story to a wider audience. Shane lives in Canberra with his wife and two sons and works in the Education and Visitor Services team at Australian Parliament House.

Show 373 Notes: Kevin Day, Gary Voorhis & Robert Powell

 

KEVIN DAY is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer. A former Operations Specialist
and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20 years experience in Strike Group air defense
including war-time operations. An expert operator of the highly advanced SPY-1 radar system with years of service onboard AEGIS equipped ships including the USS VINCENNES, USS CHOSIN, and USS PRINCETON. Kevin has
logged hundreds of air-to-air intercepts of suspect aircraft in both training and war-time operations.
It was Kevin’s team in USS PRINCETON’s Combat Information Center that discovered the fleets of
anomalous air contacts, now known as the TIC TAC UFOs, in the sky’s above the Southern California
Operating Area in November 2004.

Because the unidentified air contacts were in too close proximity to the NIMITZ Strike Group while they were conducting at-sea training exercises and represented a potential hazard to safe flight
operations, Kevin recommended investigating the contacts with a pair of F/A 18 Super Hornets
launched from the USS NIMITZ. The NIMITZ Strike Group’s Air Defense Commander concurred and Kevin’s team conducted the now famous intercept. Interestingly, it was to become Kevin’s very last tactical intercept. It was also Kevin’s very last underway in the Navy prior to his retirement.

GARY VOORHIS background in mechanical engineering, and working as an electronic and RF technician. He was a fire control-man and Aegis Computer/ CEC technician in the United States Navy. His responsibilities included the operation, maintenance, and repair of the Aegis weapon systems and non-Aegis senor systems for the purpose of testing and evaluating experimental upgrades to the Aegis baseline 6.1 and  Cooperative Engagement Systems or CEC for short.

During his time on the U.S.S. Princeton, he had the task of security and inventory of top-secret and classified information and materials including being trained on the W.A.S.P military recon U.A.V. for the Pacific Fleet during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

On the week of the 14th of November 2004, he was an eyewitness of the U.S.S. Nimitz “tic-tac” events.  As a result of this experience, he was interviewed by Chris Mellon for the History Channel Show UNIDENTIFIED: INSIDE AMERICA’S UFO INVESTIGATION

Show Notes: Kent Senter

Simulcast, YouTube Live Streamed and on KGRA Radio Tuesday, October 1st @ 6:00PM to 8:00PM ET (GMT-4)

KENT SENTER was raised in Northern Virginia in Falls Church just outside of Wash DC until his senior year in HS when his family moved to NC.  Kent had childhood sightings in Virginia and interesting conversations with high ranking military and government friends who lived in the neighborhood.  In the late 50’s and 60’s, it seemed like everyone in the DC area was either military or worked for the government.  Later while living in NC, after the Lumberton NC sighting in April 1975 and Durham NC sighting around 1985, he met and became friends with George Fawcett who was a longtime researcher and writer on the subject. The two started the NC Chapter for MUFON in the late 80’s and Kent was a state section director and an investigator until the late 90’s. Kent left MUFON NC due to his job relocation and was out of the UFO news for awhile.  After learning he had multiple myeloma cancer in 2009 and given months to live, he decided to start researching the topic again and in 2013, started the Center for UFO Research North Carolina.  He hosted an International conference that same year and also hosted a smaller conference in 2016 with Travis Walton, Thom Reed, Nick Redfern and himself as speakers.  Kent continues to receive communications about sightings and follow up investigations through his Facebook page.  He is part of a small group who meets occasionally to discuss the topic. He currently do speaking engagements and a few radio/podcast shows (Erica Lukes, Tim Beckley, and Brent Raynes) and have been slowly working on a book for the last 3 years about this phenomena.

Often, he comes up with convincing answers.
