From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Jan Aldrich) Date: Tue, 06 May 1997 09:42:35 -0700 Subject: The Edwards AFB Non_Event of 9-1-67 Greetings, JUST CAUSE #50*, just published, has an article, "The Edwards AFB Non-Event of 9-1-67" about the denial of a military UFO case at Edward Air Force Base on 1 September 1967. Such a denial is not unusual in a UFO case. What makes this incident so unusual is the level of non-cooperation by Edwards AFB personnel with the Air Force contracted Scientific UFO Study at the University of Colorado, commonly called the Condon Committee. The Condon Committee's report did not mention this incident, or their problems with the Air Force in this case. The Condon Committee was susposed to have access to all UFO information the Air Force had. During its tenure Air Force personnel were required by regulation to submitted cases to the Condon Committee. The article details the Condon Committee's [ineffective] attempts to learn about a UFO incident at Edwards Air Force Base which at first was thought to involve the X-15 Aircraft with a sighting and filming of six UFOs on 1 September 1967. Security personnel at first confirmed such an incident had happened to a scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, but the X-15 was not involved as it did not fly on that date. The sighting was said to involve pilots and tower personnel and perhaps ground crew. Although Air Force Regulation 80-17 had been modified to require any Air Force UFO reports to go to the Condon Committee, officials at Edwards stonewalled and finally denied that anything had happened. There are other examples where information was denied to the Condon Committee by Air Force officials, and the Committee staff made no attempt remove these roadblocks by going to the project liaison officer Col Hippler. *JUST CAUSE is published quarterly by the Citizen Against UFO Security (CAUS, P.
