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.

Show 369 Notes: Randall Nickerson & Emily Trim

Simulcast, YouTube Live Streamed and on KGRA Radio Tuesday, September 10th @ 6:00PM to 8:00PM ET (GMT-4)

Alejandro Rojas with UFO Updates, then guests Randall Nickerson & Ariel School Incident witness, Emily Trim discuss the long awaited upcoming release of ARIEL PHENOMENON. Check out the trailer here: http://www.arielphenomenon.com/official-trailer

Synopsis: Ariel Phenomenon is about the human search for acceptance and meaning. It’s about struggling to live with a secret and its devastating effects on your life. In this character-driven travelogue we follow Emily, a Toronto resident and one of sixty schoolchildren who, in 1994, were part of what has become one of the most famous sightings of extraterrestrial beings and their craft. In the first feature documentary produced on the incident, Emily returns to the Ariel School in Zimbabwe, the place that, at the age of nine, shattered her reality. We meet Tim Leach, a respected BBC war reporter who reluctantly covered the event, ultimately leading him to risk his career on the one story that haunted him the most. Also jeopardizing his reputation is Pulitzer Prize-winning Harvard professor of Psychiatry Dr. John Mack, whose validation of the authenticity of the witnesses made this incident impossible to ignore. Twenty years later, Emily and her classmates are searching for answers and the courage to speak their truth in the face of a hostile world. Though this story was initially publicized worldwide, it quickly disappeared from the public eye but not from the hearts and minds of those who witnessed it. The event continues to have a deep impact on many of their lives. Their courage, conviction and consistency, both then and now, makes it difficult to dismiss this account as a child’s imagination. For twenty years many of the witnesses have felt that their voices have not been heard. Until now.

Abductions. Reproduction experiments. Memories of seeing children off-planet. The idea of humans participating in an alien hybrid program sounds absurd until you talk to people who have experienced it. Thousands of individuals around the world have had reproductive experiments carried out against their will.

The most harrowing?

The termination of unexplained pregnancies. Memories remain suppressed and fragmented, leaving experiencers confused, depressed and with a profound sense of loss. In others, the memories are visceral and emotionally disturbing. Thanks to increased acceptance, more people are coming forward with their frightening experiences.

Are aliens involved in a complex hybridization project where humans are used to cultivate a hybrid population? Extraordinary: The Seeding tells these stories through one-on-one interviews with abductees—brave individuals sharing intensely personal and emotional stories.

Show Notes: Ben Hansen & Walter Bosley

Alejandro Rojas with UFO Updates, in the first hour guest Ben Hansen touches on UFOs and discusses his new show on the Travel Channel, “Ghosts of Morgan City“(Louisiana) and more. In hour two guest, Walter Bosley discusses UFOs, and more.

BEN HANSEN: Ben grew up primarily in Utah, the 2nd oldest of six children. Supportive parents encouraged him to fully pursue all of his interests. Like many of his friends, Ben’s dad enrolled him in sports and coached dozens of his athletic teams while his mom signed him up for piano and trumpet lessons and kindled within him an interest for music. Ironically, she was also the one who taught him how to fish, camp, and shoot a gun while his dad preferred to teach life’s lessons on the court and baseball field. Because his parents were so supportive, Ben developed an obsession for trying new things, especially if it involved earning certifications and licenses. These endeavors included becoming a licensed land and sea airplane pilot, amateur radio operator, licensed falconer, certified SCUBA diver, hang glider, EMT, Search and Rescue dog handler, and earning the Eagle Scout award in Boy Scouts (in large part thanks to his mother). He graduated with honors from the University of Utah with a Bachelors degree in Sociology, certification in Criminology and Corrections, a Spanish minor, and a year of study abroad completed in Australia. Ben maintains his Spanish fluency and has used it quite frequently in his work and personal life.
