Recently, I received an E-mail from the manager of a local supermarket.
The businessman related an experience that occurred in 1996, when he and
his companions sighted a huge black rectangular object in the air, just
west of Spencer, Indiana. While the huge black monolith hovered overhead, two F-4 Phantoms
(presumably Indiana Air National Guard ) from Hullman Field in Terre Haute)
came "blazing" overhead. As the military jets arrived, the object began to
move slowly away and out of sight. After the encounter, the man telephoned Hullman Field to inquire about the fighters that were dispatched. The
ING official responded, "We had a Hercules that was having trouble over that way." The
man then asked if a Hercules was capable of hovering dead stop in the air.
ING official responded by hanging up the phone on the witness.
