Do you have any talks coming to the USA or Hawaii?

12:46 AM on October 5, 2015 

Well guys... you have to be commended on a resounding success with the conference. The diversity and content was an interesting cross section coverage of all that our endeavours in the field aspire to. The quality of the speakers you were able to harness were exemplory. Good work.

Hello everyone. I am a new member here and just wanted to say hi! Bill it must have been extraordinary what you had seen in the Grampians area! I have heard of people feeling rather emotional after witnessing a UFO. Did you take any photos? Sally

there was no time to take photos we were in complete awe. And me and my mate afterwards said we didnt even really have emotion at the time, i cant explain the feeling

1:14 PM on June 16, 2012 

also to add to below, from the description i mentioned it would seem like it could be a plane, but the arrangement of the lights seemed as if the object was a rectangular shape and it didnt make the noise of plane, to be honest yeah farily imposible to explain what happened but id just like to see if anyone has seen anything unussual out in the grampian area

Stephen Webb says...

Hi Guys

Back fron few days hiking the Grampians NP. Very hot but meant warm nights. Spent a night at Reids Lookout star gazing and looking for you know what. If any of you have seen the veiw from there its amazing. Great vantage point to look at the skies. Lots of Sats and Shooting Stars but nothing more than that..... dam.

hi stephen, just recently went to the grampians for a camping trip over queens birthday weekend and was stunned by what i saw.

My friend owns a property with a couple of caravans on it and a large paddock. we decided to go for a walk one night and the sky was so clear you could see the milkway etc. on our way back to the campsite my friend and i saw what we first thought to be a satelite, a small red dot approached, it seemed too far away to be a plane and there was also no noise at the time, the red dot kept moving from right to left and as it moved above us 2 rows of 3 lights appeared, front row blue and second row white still followed by the red dot at the back. in shock my mate and i looked at eachother and said 'are you seeing this?' then while it was leaving a very very faint humming noise like the sound of a car idling came from conclude the story the strangest part of it all was when it was leaving (just kept going into the sky) we both had wattery eyes, as if we where almost crying for no reason?! no alcohol or drugs were consumed, this was easily the strangest experience of my life, im not in to ufo's and all that business but after what happened to me and my mate last week im keen to find out if anyone else has seen stuff like this out near the grampians

I am working towards my goals in Genetic Engineering and Technology so if i ever come across another sighting i might be able to sketch it quickly or make a life form that has the same thought patterns or way or tactics. If anyone specialises in Genetic Engineering or scientific fields of space please message me =). I would love to have some assistance on a tracking and mapping program so i can do SOMETHING to help VUFOA while progressing towards my Goals.

9:16 PM on May 7, 2012 

Hi everyone! VUFOA has made it in the local paper! Had great support from the Leader Newspaper in getting this done...this is just the beginning! Will have article put on the site shortly. Part of the team are off to AURA in Adelaide next week. We are there to support Andrew (Director here from VUFOA) as he will be a guest speaker. More to follow later. Stay tuned!!!!

3:44 AM on April 25, 2012 

Hi everyone! Just checking in to let you know that I have managed to get VUFOA in a local paper...a story is being done on the birth of this awesome website...stay tuned!!!!

10:16 PM on March 22, 2012 

Hi everyone! Myself, Andrew and other team members had a wonderful night with Mary Rodwell Monday night. She is the most loveliest person anyone could meet and we all enjoyed assisting her on the night! Mary was so informative about her work and gave a fabulous presentation. Will be loading pictures of our time with Mary shortly.

11:26 PM on February 6, 2012 

Hi everyone! PO Box address is up and running...just another great advancement for the site!This will be so beneficial now and opens another door in the communication line for those who wish to post things out to VUFOA.

9:34 PM on January 31, 2012 

Hello all,

Just a quick note to let you know we have now registered our organisation's name as a business name.......Yes we are on the board so to speak. Also in the next week we will release to you a new post office Box address for those that wish to send a letter or material such as CD's DVD's Articles etc.

Hi Guys,

Ive downloaded for your reading COMETA

The French Report on UFOs and Defense.

On Friday July 16, 1999 an important document was published in France entitled, UFOs and Defense: What must we be prepared for? This ninety-page report is the result of an in-depth study of UFOs, covering many aspects of the subject, especially questions of national defense. The study was carried out over several years by an independent group of former "auditors" at the Institute of Advanced Studies for National Defense, or IHEDN, and by qualified experts from various fields. Before its public release, it has been sent to French President Jacques Chirac and to Prime Minister Lionel Jospin.

Hi Rob

Ric is a member of the site, all communication must be through VUFOA. There is a function where you can send him a message.

Go to members section, select Ric and send message from there. We do not give out email addresses. Sorry


Rob says...

Radar & UAP: reply to Andrew A.

Received your response, but the link in the email failed for some reason.

Thank you for replying. If, as you suggest, Ric is the man to speak to, would he be willing to exchange email addresses for easier and more private communication? Or perhaps use the equivalent facility on this site? It is only to discuss the feasibility of using recorded radar data, as mentioned below.

5:36 PM on January 23, 2012 

Hi everyone. Just checking in. I have ordered my Calender...can't wait to receive it! Do hope you other members will support the website and orders yours today! This a rare opportunity to purchase one...a one off in Australia!!!!! Will take pride of place on my wall!!! Jan

Radar & UAP

I was recently pointed in the direction of VUFOA as a possible research group that may be interested in the use and analysis of radar data.

It's a technical issue, but I have the ability to convert and animate recorded radar data (uncorrelated primary returns and secondary/transponder returns, from multiple sources.)

The main challenges are obtaining data (via FOIA requests in the U.S.) and extracting relevant data from the various file formats. However, if you are interested in this aspect of UAP research and wish to discuss the issues further, please contact me via [email protected]

As the famous Ufologist in our midst George says - NO PROBLEMS JAN. John is keen to sketch and talk and due to his many tallents can do the two standing on one ear. Just kidding. Very tallented chap our John. Was in touch with our member MATT from Wallan - via email today. Do join in the discussions here MATT and if you have a copy of that old famous Whittlesea photo of the saucer perhaps you could post it up or email it in etc. It is somewhere in my archives but might take me a week to locate it - got to get a secretary. The NE corridor as we pilots refer to it takes in your neck of the woods and all the way up yonder past Rubicon and Eildon (Thornton). I call this THE INVADERS territory after the TV series because if you have studied this production real hard the terrain is very very similar. And the other UFO action area is the northern realm of the Grampians. WARNING: If mounting an expedition please go in groups and not alone due to the dangers. Abduction is a threat if not somewhat remote to us but increasing on a global scale according to veteran of homicide of 27 years. Duty of care applies here folks so don't take risks and always be prepared. No police force or government will assist you if you come to grief with this UFO situation. It will most likely all be covered up like what they have tried to do with Fred Valentich. There is also the Black Panther and Tasmanian Tiger issue and half a sheeps carcass that was found 50'feet up a gum tree - and the hunter that killed a black panther - tail mailed to a big cat DNA specialist in India and conveniently went missing in the mail - possibly turn up on a car antenna or is packed away in the basement of the DSE. Hey GEORGE - If you check in here tell us about the NZ UFO leading lady you met on your cruise recently. Over and out.....

4:53 AM on January 17, 2012 

Well just checking in....thanks Ric...such nice comments one again! Would like to organise an interview with John u think he would like to go ahead with this? We are interested in his sightings but would he be able to do a sketch of what he saw? Let me know what u think, but would definitely like to interview him.....keep cool...sweltering here!!!!!

11:27 AM on January 16, 2012 

It is 3.30 AM in the morning and I have been tending to some computer downloads. The view from my office window overlooks the southern suburbs and city skyline. The police air wing has been on patrol around the bayside areas being a hot balmy night. I saw the distant glow and pondered about its slow speed - probably using nightsun at times and heat seeking image equipment. How many folk mistakingly report this outfit as a UFO? The sky outside is ablaze with stars with slightly less light pollution and I find myself using the Airservices community web traks site to check on air traffic around the Melbourne terminal region. One freighter to Launceston across the bay at over 14,000' AMSL feet and climbing. Nav lights hard to even see they are so faint now. There are some interesting things happening outside but you need to know what you are looking at and for. It is a start and David Vincent would have loved this capability in his quest to monitor THE INVADERS. Sleep well everyone out there. Over and out.

6:31 AM on January 16, 2012 

I liked that original picture of you Jan. Very glam and reminded me of the gals in Thunderbirds and other Gerry Anderson creations. You should put it back up. An encouraging day all round with the future starting to look a bit more optimistic after all the hard times of late. Radiators and electric blankets now in off mode again and tonight the air conditioner is back on in the office as I tend to 5 computers all doing various things through the night. Crazy Melbourne weather. Thought I might go for a swim to cool off. What a change from wearing Ugg boots two nights ago. Just as I drove out to see John Tomkins tonight at 8.00PM that very high altitude aircraft came over heading northbound. John sees it regularly and thought it was some type of drone. I have identified it as a Cessna 182 and the other one is a Cessna Caravan - special operations for law enforcement outlets - mobile phone drug surveillance. George showed me some fantastic images of his New Zealand cruise and met the NZ UFO lady into the bargain plus came across two of our friends on the same cruise and even had a client call him midway to NZ on the mobile phone re cameras. Our man George is always on the job. Good one pal.

3:13 AM on January 16, 2012 

Hi everyone....just checking in....thanks for your good wishes Ric....great seeing you today at the good ole airport! And George too!...yes can't wait to get back on board frustrating as I want to get things done!!!! But first things first...can't wait for Saturday...will be wired up soon!!!​

3:56 AM on January 15, 2012 

Very best wishes Jan with the upcoming move and new position. We will all look forward to your input once you get wired up again. Until then shall endeavour to mind the fort as best we can. Shall look forward to more of your podcast clips. Fantastic bit of research.

2:27 AM on January 15, 2012 

Hi everyone...just checking in between packing as I am moving very shortly....Ric your update alert is very interesting...thanks for the heads up on this one...will check it out!!!! PC will be packed away for a few I might be a little absent this to get the internet sorted too....then once hooked up I should be raring to go!!!! Great job Ric...see you at the airport lol!!!!

3:56 AM on January 15, 2012

UPDATE ALERT - this morning featured the world's scariest landings by airliners and military jets. Then, I discovered links which you could bring up with secret black budget aircraft doing incredible speeds and belching out huge contrails. Taken by amateurs. One of these planes was nothing like anything known. Could it be the Aurora? CHECK IT OUT PEOPLE. This backs onto the new discussion THE CHANGING SHAPES OF UFO's. Join us today

5:06 AM on January 11, 2012 

THE CHANGING SHAPES OF UFO's. I decided to kick off a discussion on what to me is a big mystery behind the shapes of saucers and the like. Give us your expertise on the subject based on what has been flying around your neck of the woods. Join us under this heading or section. Thanks.

1:36 AM on January 11, 2012 

Great comments again Jan. Thanks for that encouragement. Will be dreaming of that pink Rolls forever and a day. The hardships of Lady Penelope and nosey old Parker. Thanks for the birthday wishes. Had a great night out with family at Box Hill Golf Club. Nice meals up there and the clouds and birdlife was incredible. All we needed was for an Adamski scout craft to land on the tee and the camera would have been clicking. The colouring book is great. I sometimes think that mothers still see their sons as little kids - particularly when they call around and you are playing another old Thunderbirds VHS tape. Caught again....Your new PC is coming for that new job Jan. Got word on it today. I'm very happy for you. Think you will love it and the views. On the topic of weather - half inch hail in Camberwell this morning and second time our skylight has been smashed of late by hail and leaking water again. I'm just wondering if many cars got damaged. This is the forecast change to the pattern we were warned about. At least the dams are much better off. Essendon airport had over 100 light aircraft written off Christmas Day due to hail damage. They kept that low in the media.

11:31 PM on January 10, 2012 

Dear Well thought I would stop by the Guestbook again....Happy Birthday Ric...belated birthday wishes to you....howz that colouring book going? You and Andy did a great job on new topic Thunderbirds debate...this is a nice light hearted topic and a refreshing addition to the forum. I will be on vufoa as often as I can in between my packing and starting new job next week...once settled in my new place I will be raring to go on here and working on a new project too on UA which I am looking forward in doing....

4:55 PM on January 7, 2012 

F.A.B. - see the Thunderbirds debate. Were you ever into this or Stingray, Captain Scarlet or Dr. Who? Andy and I kick the topic off with a bang to start 2012.

12:00 AM on January 6, 2012 

My Mum just gave me a colouring book with glow in the dark aliens and UFO stickers for my birthday. Over the Moon. Some interesting material they give kids (and big ones) today.

6:07 AM on January 5, 2012 

Thanks Jan - Chadstone newsagency has several copies as of today and more to come they say. Seems to be popular over there. I got to know this outlet and the folk that run it doing various market research etc over the years. They carry a wide range of subjects including several UFO publications which I have found difficult to get elsewhere. Spoke to George today on the mobile. He had gone ashore from the Dawn Princess P & O liner to Dunedin which is the South Island of New Zealand. Having a ball - mobile reception okay but internet on board very slow and expensive. Filled him in on all the news. He will be back next week. He managed to locate two missionary stamp club friends of ours amidst over 2000 passengers and they all went out to a show. The stamp club raises money for missions and charities and Brian and Michele are a big part of it. Brian looks like being our president this year and can be of great use with this Australia Post idea I had for UFO stamps etc. The point of view is that such stamps become very collectable and make money for worthwhile causes. George says nothing to report back - yet. Weather improving. Saw Charles today Jan - huge plans amidst. Fingers crossed. Just setting up a brand new weather station at home after previous one was blown apart by storms and hail damage. I want to keep pace with what is going on here. Have seen two backyard umbrellas turn into rockets and destroy themselves of late. I no longer want to even sit under them. Cannot imagine why. Might be hit by lightning next time. Ha.

3:46 AM on January 5, 2012 

I will have to try and get hold of this issue Ric...some newsagencies don't have this where I am....will keep a look out! Well done on your first article too! Can't wait to have a read!

11:52 PM on January 3, 2012 

UFOLOGIST magazine Vol.15 No.5 January-February 2012 out now at newsagents - or subscribe. Comments by George Simpson in his 'NOW THEN' section which also include Andrew in the NARCAP debate on those Valentich ATC tapes. You will see my involvement here also in this fiasco. Also my first time effort article for this particular magazine on my own background and experience with Fred Valentich and more. Hope you find all this of some interest and encouragement. My own article and photoes come on top of an earlier one that George did on me for the same magazine for which I thank him. It is good to have a say, set the record straight and sink some of the silly ideas that various folk have on you and the subject matter. Even this afternoon media are still chasing me for which I have absolutely no interest in allowing them to pit me up again with skeptics and those that encourage harm. That infamous radio shock jock (who shall be nameless) once interviewed me and was really quite disgusting suggesting I was an alcoholic and had been out in the sun too long. Give them enough rope and they hang themselves (without saying or doing anything as this man did recently). Anything for ratings. The fact is that I hardly ever drink, am not an alcoholic and have never been one nor do I spend long periods out under the sun (after what I know). Pretty sad when media stoop to this low level. Anyway, enjoy the magazine because it is all about frontliners - like you.

4:40 PM on January 3, 2012 

Spoke too soon as our backyard umbrella took off like a rocket amidst an early morning squall and thunderstorm.

4:18 AM on January 3, 2012 

After Spaceweather I wanted to mention the second met bureau alert this summer. It came out today amidst the heatwave across SE Australia. We are in for extreme weather conditions and average temperatures will be up 2-3 degrees which contributes massive extra amounts of latent heat into the atmosphere. My purpose in alerting you is that at this time of year many folk are out and about. Sadly, very few have a comprehensive and clear knowledge of meteorology and some of the cosmic changes that may be going on in our midst. Learn all you can about daily forecasts people. Get interested in this area as it can save your life. I can testify to that having flown through thunderstorms at night when no forecast even had the predicted outcome. That was some years ago. Since then the new generation of Cray super computers are getting pretty darn good at predicting what will transpire. Little tips when caught in a thunderstorm in your car - stay in it and head for a garage or some kind of shelter like a shopping mall car park undercover. Worry about photography last. Don't attempt to drive across deeply flooded highways unless you have a snorkel like on a 4 wheel drive. Remember, when that ordinary fan belt gets wet it will slip and you can stall. When electrical activity is present make sure you are not touching metallic objects attached to your car and don't lean on metal poles, fence posts, garage pillars etc. DUCK AND COVER like those early nuke warnings in the US during the cold war. Finally, dangerous marine creatures are coming closer to shore as we approach a solar max this year, also due to continued over-fishing at sea and conservation policies protecting dangerous critters. Stay safe and think about these things. You have a duty of care towards your family and others.

5:45 AM on January 2, 2012 website which is run by NASA is great for updates on solar storms, CME's and various phenomena associated with space and upper atmospheric weather. I consult it at least three times per day. Information on meteorites and satellites are often found here and on associated linked web sites.

5:41 AM on January 2, 2012 

Amidst this warm weather gaze at the sky and notice the cloud patterns and half Moon right now. There may be some pretty nasty thunderstorms ahead soon which will dampen our enthusiasm for watching the stars, satellites and other odd things going on. Hey George - if you can view this from the luxury of your Dawn Princess ocean liner over in NZ waters right now give us a few comments on what you have seen todate. Were the stars super bright and clear aboard ship away from the city lights? At least we know your mobile phone works mid way out in the Tasman. Thanks for checking in.

2:01 PM on January 2, 2012 

Well what a scorcher today!!!! 40o temp and was out in it for a short while today...VUFOA related so work is to be done regardless of the heat! Now that's dedication!

Hope more members will contribute to the forum section this year....there are so many different topics...would appreciate seeing more contribute to this area....its a great way to express your friendly opinions on the different topics!!!!!

Well lap top is melting here! Just too warm to operate! Pray for cool change soon!!!!

5:47 AM on January 1, 2012 

Interesting way to spend the evening. My old assistant Ken would have jumped at the chance to do that. He and I have done a bit of plane spotting over the years and also train spotting late at night up near Wallan. Funny seeing an overnighter scream by with some blinds still up and people moving around unpacking and getting organized for the night. The dining car is in full swing with various romantic couples and one or two peering our windows trying to make head and tail of the pitch black countryside. Being late at night it reminded some of us of an X File movie or scene from THE INVADERS. This is the area where that famous daytime UFO shot was taken. Spy killer satellites Jan are the ones that apparently can speed up, slow down and change direction. UFO's are known to do the same things and more. This makes it very hard for us researchers to know what we are looking at. Last night during the fireworks, we were overlooking the city skyline at our place and an A380 Airbus comes in on a left base for runway 16 at YMML airport - with a fantastic view of the pyrotecnics. What a thrill for the passengers on the port side. We ended up going for a late night swim to cool off amidst air conditioners still working hard to bring the house temperature down. My array of computers in the office do not take kindly to extreme heat.

1:40 AM on January 1, 2012 

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope you enjoyed bringing in the New Year spending it with family and/or friends!

rine was pretty neat and beat spending the evening alone! This isn't the first time I have been plane spotting there...but this night was exceptional! It was a hot night, there were fireworks that could be viewed from our vantage point over melbourne and Mr. Whippy the icecream can was not far! A simple but nice way to spend the New Year!!! There were so many others there was like a seen from Close Encounters when those people were on the hill waiting to see a UFO...the atmosphere was fabulous!

Anyhow, I am not writing this to brag about my time there last night, but wanted to share a sighting that myself and the people I was with last night saw!!!...

I would like to get this down on record as it was amazing! In between watching planes landing from Sunbury Rd, I was watching this bright orange object about the same distance away as a satelite would be in the night sky..I watched it for ages as it was stationary but really caught my eye, then it started to move across from the West to almost over our heads but very high above. It started to flash orange intermitently at 4 second intervals as it moved across darting around so much we were losing track of it. Interesting too as we watched a satelite coming from the other direction passing over it...i watched it for 20minutes and watched it go higher until it faded into the distance!!!. We were all a bit surprised by what we saw....anyhow a great way to end 2011!!!

10:57 PM on December 30, 2011 

I had lunch with an industry source today and he thinks Victoria Police have been using other aircraft for surveillance. We were told a Cessna Caravan was involved. Now we see a Cessna 182. He thinks that on some missions a discreet radar transponder code is given and this is designed not to show up so it cannot be archived and made available to the public. ATC people may have it on their screens but everyone else is being kept out of the loop. Where it does show may just indicate a training mission for which any intelligence gathering is not important to them. Have we solved that mystery? Time will tell. The purpose of such missions is to monitor mobile phones and drug movements. Apparently they need to be able to triangulate. I would have thought all this could have been done on the ground for less cost.

5:07 PM on December 31, 2011 

I have identified a Cessna 182 aircraft that did come up on radar and leave a paint/trail in the Airservices Australia archives. It was up around 12,000'feet AMSL and mostly around the CBD and down towards Mordialloc. This is a very high altitude to just be sight seeing and the track was a bit odd. Even as an air exersize using navaids it was very non-standard. It still does not explain the Narre Warren-Dandenong sightings with no radar paint - yet one eye witness heard what to him sounded like an aircraft - yet operating in a non-standard way. Don't suppose these craft are drones or perhaps çhanging shape and characteristics to look like something we made? Just a very wild theory. Keep a look out people because there are a few odd things transpiring of late for which we have no concrete explaination.

12:00 AM on December 29, 2011 

Update on Narre Warren high altitude aircraft type object. Has appeared for several nights and NO radar tracking data in the archives recorded by Airservices Australia. This is very unusual and constitutes a danger to other aircraft users. The only theory I have here is a drone type craft because it seems to be up for around 5 hours at a time circling around. Perhaps even the Victoria Police are using or testing surveillance listening equipment. They were supposed to be using a Cessna Caravan for listening into mobile phones and drug movements but could have changed craft and techniques. Who knows. So, if you are in the Narre Warren/Dandenong area get out your telescopes, binoculars and video recorders and see if you can help crack this mystery. Altitudes observed range from 3000'feet AMSL to over 10,000'feet AMSL. That puts it in CTA. (Controlled airspace) - mandatory for radar transponders equipment to be squawking on the assigned four figure code. These craft are not the Black Hawk anti-terror squadron that have been seen in the early hours of the morning conducting exercises at Lysterfield Lake.

It was Paul B. Norman from VUFORS that used to tell me and others that UFO's are as prolific as the planes that fly over our heads. There appears to be some very odd happenings including a few images that got caught by my camera a while ago which zoomed over Moorabbin Airport. Drones (man made) or something else? Where is David Vincent when you need him? Still smoking a cig... There is one very large chopper based at Moorabbin right now and I suspect it will be used for fire fighting Andrew. There could be quite a bit of check riding going on to renew instrument ratings and other things. Just a thought. I shall ask one of the chopper bosses when next I see him. He is due to come over to my hangar on an unrelated matter any day now.

Several nights ago we had a helicopter hovering over our house, circled about 8 times before it stopped overhead for over half an hour It had one continuous green light, no blinking and it was loud. It was hard to see but it appeared to be very large for a heli. This was south Frankston​

The last two nights Narre Warren area my friend John has reported a strange aircraft (with sound) at high altitude circling for up to 5 hours at a time. I ran a web tracks search with Airservices Australia using archives section and this craft was not using a radar transponder because it aint showing up. Big mystery. Could it be the Victoria Police Caravan that does special work? My friend who used to be in aviation (same company that Jan used to work for) does not think so. If anybody lives in that region could you please look out and report back. The craft concerned is in controlled airspace and appears blind to other trafic. Very odd if not dangerous. Thanks people.

Good one Stephen. That will keep you fit and alert. Check in with any unusual sightings and/or Met observations. This time of year anything goes. 

Have a great New Year and I trust the new career path will be rewarding. Are you going down the SW coast towards Cape Otway or other direction?

6:27 PM on December 25, 2011 

Hi All.

I/2 way through my PT course, got a 2 week break, which Im going to enjoy. So im going to spend some time working on my beach/surf time, and watching the skies again.

Merry Xmas & safe New Year to all

Great to see the Australia Post petition re commemorative stamps recognizing the nations biggest UFO cases. May I urge everyone to get behind this effort. It also sends a clear message to government that the people have had enough of such cases being stonewalled and subject to secrecy protocols. Fred Valentich won't go away nor will Westall and neither will many folk that have directly been touched in some way by these encounters. In short Australia's biggest unsolved air mystery and the nations biggest mass UFO sighting. Next we will be told that witnesses to such events are all cuckoo. Thanks Andrew for your strong and bold support. Australia Post would benefit with merchandise such as the Westall 66 DVD, posters, envelopes, medals and toys. This is a corporation that has regular themes. eg. Planet Ocean etc.

BAD NEWS ABOUT SANTA - The Civil Aviation Authority have told Santa that he must have a 2 year Flight Review before entering his craft into Australian airspace. The CASA test officer fronted up to the North Pole Airport Corporation and walked across the apron with a double barrelled shotgun. The NPAC wanted to slap the usual $10,000 fine on the CASA officer due to post 9/11 weapons being prohibited on airports but the officer had a special dispensation. When this chap approached the sleigh Santa asked him why he had the gun. Oh, he said, I have to test your handling of a double engine failure on take off. Naturally Santa is a little browned off because his precious reindeer are family to him and he does not have any spares (until next spring). Santa will not be coming to Australia this Christmas due to the overkill once again by Australian regulators. Explain that to the long suffering little tots. You can track Santa around the rest of the world on the NORAD site.

Thanks to everyone for a wonderful and lively night of forum debate. Better go and make a cuppa and do a peak outside with the binoculars. Never know what we may see. Sometimes it is possums and foxes, and at other times shooting stars and the Moon with a glint in it. Never did trust that old man in the Moon. Wonder what he is up to?

Welcome everyone. Jan and I will operate as your caring and loving moderators like Mum and Dad so to speak. Share your insights and reports. Tell us what has been happening in your neck of the woods and see if we can all work together and put the jig saw together somewhat. Keep a camera with you and even take notes of anything unusual. The more technical details you can remember the better it will be at any debriefing. A good knowledge of basic weather and astronomy is useful for serious minded observers. I cannot stress that enough because if you ever have to front up to big brother who may want input you need to do it as professionally as you can. This will give you credibility and attract far more attention than just a quick few comments that could be debunked easily. You folk are all special because you are FRONTLINERS. Make this forum work for you, increase your understanding and even communication/writing skills. Hope these remarks help you. Live long and prosper as Spock said.

Had a reply from Rosie and she likes the AP idea and will be keen to look at the Valentich details as we discuss and investigate further.

5:12 AM on December 11, 2011 

Have some input from Carmel and she is talking to Rosie re my proposal.

4:26 AM on December 8, 2011

Hey guys - how about we try and get film producer Rosie Jones and co from Endangered Pictures (that did Westall 66) interested in the Valentich mystery. There is a very big smoking gun with this one and various folk from overseas cannot get enough of it. If they call the new film VALENTICH the whole world will know this case rather than just using FREDERICK. Make it happen people. That 70 year government legal department which imposed such terms on the ATC tape reaks of a huge cover up. Now is the time to push the envelope, unite together, say to big brother and its agents to put up or shut up. See the remaining days of this year (what is left) put to productive use. Lobby.....???

5:36 AM on November 23, 2011

Miracles do happen Jan. It gets better all the time...

11:42 PM on November 18, 2011 

Thoughts and prayers go to Jan and her family after that car accident. I trust all will be okay. Hang in there Jan. There is hardly a person I know that has not been touched by road accidents and incidents. This time of year (like all times) everyone needs to slow down.

6:22 AM on November 14, 2011 

No problem. Hope it helps with the effort. Cheers from Ric.

6:19 AM on November 14, 2011 

Hi Ric

Thanks so much for finding these pictures, I am going to see George tomorrow night to see if these are what we need to complete the shots of Moorabbin AP....

Appreciate the effort



5:55 AM on November 14, 2011 

Evening Andrew - hope George was able to deliver those Valentich era images to you safely including some on loan from Val. There are shots of the ground search at Cape Otway and ones of the old tower at YMMB airport along with various staff in front of planes. George will no doubt show you the twin commander that also vanished out over Bass Strait at the time - picture taken of our old Piper Cherrokee and you can see the twin in the background. This is the twin that Dick Smith did a documentary on re the search stuff up and delay. An Ansett F27 circled overhead and saw one of the two survivors but it took too long to get a chopper out there. This is yet another mystery because we don't know why the plane came down and it did not get the media spin that Fred Valentich did. The plane was never recovered as far as we know. See my door pin comments on the Valentich tape forum site as this may explain the scaping noise on the Valentich tape. This is something never before discussed.

5:30 PM on November 11, 2011 

Stephen, it's great to hear from you. We have certainly missed your comments in the forum. congratulations on the career change too.

4:28 PM on November 11, 2011
