From case-histories studied by the authors, we have little doubt that the people
who have claimed to have been abducted by UFOs, either to other worlds in
space, or else to another dimension without leaving Earth, have had genuine
experiences, and these have often affected their lives thereafter.
For some it has meant
the acquiring of psychic powers they never had before their experience, while for
others it has led to a complete mental breakdown.
Consider the following case-histories, which we believe demonstrates more
that one aspect of ‘Alien Abductions’ claims, which show that, while some ETs are
genuinely interested in we humans from a purely scientific viewpoint, and have been
known to help people with medical problems at times; others reveal a less than
humane attitude toward their captives.
Many people have been released to tell their
tales, while others have never been returned!
The Blue Mountains Triangle holds many secrets, and those who have
survived their descent into it have eerie tales to tell of their experience.
In 1960 a light aircraft is said to have flown over Singleton on a course
heading south-west. Somewhere over the Wollemi Wilderness it literally vanished
without trace. One Putty Road farmer in 1983 spotted a light aircraft flying north to
south over the MacDonald River, where it suddenly disappeared “Like a light globe
being switched off” as he said.
This phenomena will be dealt with later on in this
book. It is a mysterious aspect of aircraft disappearances over the Wollemi, and also
Burragorang wildernesses, reported to the “Blue Mountains UFO Research Centre”
[now a branch of the Blue Mountains UFO Research Club] over the past 40 years, that
aircraft of one sort or another have either been observed to vanish in mid-air, or else
crashed, their wreckage, and often all trace of a crash literally ‘swept away’ or, as we
theorise, covered by a ‘time window’ into which they vanish without trace!
The Gungal district, roughly north-west of Denman on the northern frontier
of the ‘Triangle’ was the scene of an Abduction in late 1951, when a passing
prospector, Graem Stout, learnt from Aborigines that a “huge saucer” airship had
descended upon six Aborigines camping beside a creek in the area in January that year.
“The big ‘ship’ descended upon the group while they were sitting at their campfire having
dinner, and sucked them all up through a big hole underneath it, then flew away with them”,
Graem’s informant said.
By the time he related this story to me at my then Mt York Natural History
Museum at Mt Victoria, in 1965, there had been other UFO-related incidents in that
district, which included the spectacular sighting, one night in January 1964, of a
brightly-glowing green saucer-type craft, which flew over Denman, coming from the
Many people watched the craft as it zoomed deep into the Wollemi where it
crashed. Like most of the UFO incidents reported in this book, this incident was
hushed up by the authorities.
