The Parajournal: Famous 86-mile UFO chase in 1966 still defies Air Force ‘explanation’ Article link: http://www.timesonline.com/news/20181018/parajournal-famous-86-mile-ufo-chase-in-1966-still-defies-air-force-explanation It’s 5 a.m. April 17, 1966, when two Portage County, Ohio, sheriff deputies stop to investigate an abandoned vehicle along a road near Ravenna. Deputy Dale Spaur gets out of his car, while Wilbur “Barney” Neff remains in his. “He hears this strange humming noise, so he turns around and sees this giant UFO,” said Brian Seech, co-founder of the Center for Unexplained Events. The unidentified flying object rises from behind the trees and hovers above them, the ground drenched in bright light. What transpires next will be an 86-mile chase at speeds of more than 100 mph that will take the deputies — and a few more — on a harrowing ride from Ohio to Pennsylvania. Initially instructed by their dispatcher to shoot the object, Spaur and Neff are told to stand down by Sgt. Henry Shoenfelt who wonders if the two have found a government weather balloon. Spaur later would say that from the ground, the object looked like the head of a flashlight, about 40 feet wide and 20 feet tall. Spaur would later explain, “When I came out from under the bridge, it came down and waited for us. Just as though it knew these two cars were following it.” People still remember the incident and its lasting impression, especially on a young filmmaker named Steven Spielberg. He had used the police chase and other details in his blockbuster movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” UFO Conference in DC Area “Mysteries of Space & Sky” will take place on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Bowie Elks Lodge in Gambrills, Maryland. Tickets are $49 each.
