The recent alleged video of a UFO hovering over Chicago's O'Hare Airport, has again been deemed as authentic by the man who took the film.
In addition to confirming the facts of his visual evidence, he has uploaded a second video (above), allegedly taken by another source on the same day.
The recent interview brings out a number of interesting facts:
The witness states that he was some distance from the airport, filming at 4x digital zoom, and was facing Concourse C.
He states that he was approximately 100 feet from the UFO, which was about 750 feet altitude. He claims that the view he got was because he was standing on a wall, with his camera held at arm's length, held above his head.
He witnessed the UFO for about 2 minutes, but because of the limitations of his Samsung SGH-D900 3 Megapixel phone, he was only able to get 60 seconds of footage.
He saw a number of other people nearby with cell phones, excitedly taking film of the UFO. One of the witnesses had a camcorder.
Since he came forward with his film, he has been contacted by at least two other witnesses with photographic evidence of the incident, and posted their film on youtube.
He states that weather conditions at the time were overcast skies, with some breaks in the clouds, and that is why his film appears as it does.
In describing the craft itself, he describes it as gigantic, hazy, dark, metallic, silent, cigar-saucer shaped, and frozen still.
When asked if he talk to NARCAP's Sam Maranto, who investigated the case, he is reluctant to get involved with skeptics, and does not care what other people think, he states that his film is genuine, and to hell with the naysayers.
Now, even a third video has been released. The film is a presentation of a still frame photo of the UFO supposedly taken from the cockpit of a plane. This is what the pilot says:
March 28, 2009-Our eyewitness met with a pilot, who gave him the following testimony, along with his photograph.
"On November 7, 2006, we had just left Chicago O'Hare Airport, roughly 10 minutes into the flight at 3:45 PM we were cruising smoothly at 37,000 feet when suddenly our attention was drawn to a dark, solid, wingless, cigar/disc shaped UFO which suddenly appeared in our view through the cockpit window.
The UFO was dangerously close and roughly 100 feet in diameter. We immediately contacted Air Traffic Control, but were told that no unknown object was being picked up on radar.
Myself the captain, my co-pilot and a flight attendant all observed the UFO for 1 minute before it shot off at incredible speed, the quick thinking flight attendant reached for his 35 mm camera and took several photographs of the UFO.
We decided we would keep our story to ourselves, but are now ready to disclose it to the public".
Comparison of O'Hare Photographic Evidence
The UFO Casebook posted these screen captures of the three recent photographs/videos to be released from alleged O'Hare eyewitnesses. Given the very close resemblance of the three objects above, UFO Casebook stated that following deductions can be made:
1) Given the various angles of observation, the varying distance from the object, the different types of cameras used, and a slight variation in time, the three images appear to have captured the same object.
2) Assuming that the photographs show the same object, either this goes a long way toward proving that one UFO was captured by at least three separate witnesses at O'Hare Airport, or all three used the same model to draw from to make the photographs appear to show the same UFO - in other words, there is a conspiracy to hoax the evidence.
At this point and time, and being open minded, although the evidence is compelling for a pro-UFO conclusion, more information will be needed to make a definitive conclusion. We await that information.
The following interview was conducted, at his request, through messages sent through youtube. His answers are unedited. We have asked for a copy of the original video to be given to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for analysis.
OHAREUFOWITNESS: Here’s the exclusive interview as promised. Sorry i’ve only just got round to answering your questions but i’ve been swamped with messages from all over the world, including t.v, radio, newspapers, mags, websites, etc. I decided to give Roger the exclusive, simply because he was the first to ask, and because I’m sick of big media companies thinking they should get it first, just because they have lots of green coloured pieces of paper!!!, other people are just as important.
EXAMINER: Where were you filming from?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I was at some distance from the airport, and remember I was filming at 4xdigital zoom, but I was facing Concourse C as far as I can remember.
EXAMINER: Details as far as height and distance away from being directly under it.
OHAREUFOWITNESS: O, I was roughly 100 meters away from the saucer, UFO looked to be be at a height of 750 feet from the ground. The reason I got the incredible angle I got, was because I was stood on a wall with my camera held at arm’s length, held high above my head and I was filming at full zoom of 4x.
EXAMINER: How long did you observe it? Is this all the footage you have?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I just turned around Roger and it was there, I observed it for 2 minutes. I only got 1 miute of film because my cell phone memory was full.
EXAMINER: How many people were with you , around looking at it?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I was alone but I could see about 7 other people in the distance all with cell phones going bonkers, shouting, so others must have footage and pics. One guy had what looked like a camcorder???
EXAMINER: Do you know of any one else with footage or photos?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: The other people I know with footage and photos, contacted me through youtube after I came forward, I have met these 2 witnesses and posted their evidence, all I can say is that they seemed like credible men. I’ve had other people contact me, and I have arranged meetings to view their evidence, if it’s credible and they check out, and they let me post the footage, I will.
EXAMINER: Which direction were you facing?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I was facing Concourse C.
EXAMINER: What was weather condition like?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: Weather was overcast, cloudy, but with some breaks in the clouds, where blue sky could be seen, thats why the clip looks like it does.
EXAMINER: How light was it at that time?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: sky could be seen, thats why the clip looks like it does.
EXAMINER: What model phone camera was it that you used?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: The phone was a Samsung SGH-D900 3 Megapixel camera phone.
EXAMINER: Did you zoom in on it?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: Filming all the time at 4x digital zoom.
EXAMINER: Describe the characteristic of the object as far as color, shape, motion, sound, anything.
OHAREUFOWITNESS: UFO looked gigantic, hazy, dark, metallic, silent, cigar/saucer shaped, frozen still. Then it shot off upwards after 2 minutes at what I would estimate to be 30-40,000 mph.
EXAMINER: Did you run into more people since then that claim to have seen it, have photos, or video footage?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: Only people I have run into with o’hare UFO claims are through youtube since I came forward.
EXAMINER: Would you talk to Sam Maranto who investigated this case with NARCAP?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I refuse to get involved with skeptics/debunkers/researchers/believers. People can think what the hell they like, no way am I throwing myself to the dogs, so they can all attack my credibility, I’ve had enough of this on youtube since I came forward. It is what it is, think what they want, but trust me, my footage is genuine, and shows a real UFO. Lots of people are now trying to debunk the other 2 pieces of evidence, but they cant get an exact match on the clouds on the extraterrestrial tourists clip, which proves it’s real, and I cant wait for the sorry ass excuses regarding captain Smiths 35mm photo.
EXAMINER: Can a better copy be sent to him for evaluation?
OHAREUFOWITNESS: I will consider sending a better copy of my clip, this will be to you Roger, I will let you know soon, probably will actually to have it looked at by experts to shut the debunkers up.
OHAREUFOWITNESS: One woman contacted me who says she saw a green reptilian man with glowing red eyes on that day, she says he evaporated before her very eyes at the airport.
One man says he saw a beautiful blue woman dressed in a black cat suit, complete with weapons belt and a laser gun in one of the airport toilets on that day, he said she was holding a long silver tube with 3 red lights on it, she pushed one and vanished, he claims he sufferd physical effects after this.
A man says he is a doctor and that he was boarding an aircraft, and he witnessed a dark saucer pop in and out of the clouds for a few brief seconds on that day.
