UFO footage analysed 'frame by frame' by Pentagon official
A US Air Force captain has recalled a terrifying moment in which his nuclear base came “under attack from a UFO”.
He described how guards were left “frightened”, “screaming” and “babbling” by the bizarre sighting, which has been covered up for more than 50 years.
Robert Salas, a retired US Air Force Captain, was heading up a Malmstrom base in Montana back in 1967.
He and his colleagues saw eight orange-coloured lights over the base, which was holding 10 nuclear missiles.
Mr Salas described how guards dashed for safety as an “oval-shaped craft” disarmed the nukes.
In National Geographic’s new series UFOs: Investigating The Unknown, to be released this week, Mr Salas told the show: “I kind of dismissed it. I even said: ‘You mean like UFOs?’ About five minutes later he calls back he is screaming.
“When I hung up the phone I thought we were under attack. We could see the lights going from green to red all across the board meaning the missiles were inoperable.”
Despite the fact that a large part of the US’ nuclear capability was wiped out during the incident, it was never investigated by authorities.
The staff present at the time also had to sign documents swearing them to secrecy.
Three years after the incident, the US Air Force stopped its UFO investigation saying no reported sighting had ever posed a threat.
Mr Salas added: “That was certainly a lie.”
The subject of UFOs has been a big talking point in the States recently.
Earlier this year, the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities discussed recent sightings of UFOs, including one in the Middle East.
Footage showed during the hearing saw a strange orb-shaped object fly past a US military aircraft.
Dr Sean Kirkpatrick, who heads the agency, talked lawmakers through video footage of a UFO sighting over the Middle East and said: “This is essentially all the data we have of this event.
He added that “it’s going to be virtually impossible to fully identify that, just based off that video” and that it’s considered an “unresolved case.”
After the hearing, Republican Party Senator Marco Rubio and Democrat Mark Warner wrote a five-point letter to the Department of Defense in Washington, demanding that the process for witnesses to come forward be made easier.

They said: “To date, we have seen no efforts to communicate the existence of the secure process to the public,
“We request that you provide us an update on the plan to publicize the secure process for witnesses to come forward.”
Rubio also told Fox News: “What’s worse, our government spent too many years ignoring or downplaying the threat. Thankfully, that is beginning to change, but as we saw earlier this year, the defense and intelligence communities are still struggling.”
Mr Robio was referring to the recent incident when the US shot down a Chinese spy balloon.
He continued: “Senior Pentagon leaders said publicly that two of the UAP were almost certainly not balloons, but Congress has not been provided the rationale or sensor data to support this unprecedented action.
“In this instance, we shot down multiple UAP, and it’s not clear, to this day, we know with confidence what they were.
“We stood up the AARO office to address just such an instance; to rapidly aggregate and analyze the data and apply the scientific process. We need the (Biden) Administration to fully empower the AARO office and comply with the guidance set out in the FY23 NDAA.”
“FY23 NDAA” stands for fiscal year 2023 National Defense Authorization Act, which includes clauses about establishing secure pathways for witnesses and whistleblowers to come forward with their stories.
The retired Navy senior chief said that what the Senators are asking for “is likely what I would need to submit.”
