This Story Just Might Make You Believe in UFOs
For years now, people have been wondering if there are people on other planets in our universe. Movies have been made of Martians attacking earthlings, but with the Mars Rover currently sending pictures from Mars it seems unlikely that there are “beings” on that planet. But it is a big universe out there and we continue to find more and more planets in the solar system. Still, people are always being asked if they believe in Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs.
If you think not, you might want to research an event that occurred on this date in 1948. It was the first recorded case of an airplane crash caused by a UFO and it took place in the skies over Kentucky. On January 7th, 1948 Air Force pilot Thomas Mantell was investigating UFO reports filed by the Kentucky Highway Patrol. Mantell radioed a report that he was in pursuit of a 300 foot metallic object at 15,000 feet. Just as he radioed he was closing in on the craft, his airplane burst into flames and he crashed to his death.
It is stories like this that will always have humans believe that maybe we are not alone. What do you think?
