UFO ENCOUNTER 1947 OVER NEW JERSEY
On July 10, 1947, John H. Janssen, was piloting his plane out of Morristown Airport in New Jersey. Janssen was also the editor of the "Daily Record," an aviation journal.
During his flight, he was surprised to see six, luminous craft of a spherical shape. The objects seemed to have a haze-like ring around them. The unknown objects were high above him, but just close enough to count their number.
He was able to take one photograph, and was only able to get four of the craft in the frame. The picture is of poor quality, but brings up the question as to whether or not he saw six separate objects, or one object with six lights.
Incredibly, he saw either the same type of, or the identical craft on July 23. His plane was at 6,000 feet altitude at the time of the sighting. He made this statement:
"While my eyes played over the horizon, I became aware of a shaft of light that seemed like that of a photographer's flash bulb. It came from aloft, very high up. It was above that position over my plane's nose that flier's call 11 O'clock."
At first, Janssen thought he may only be seeing a reflection from a very high flying aircraft, but soon his plane began to malfunction. He gave the carburator all it could handle in case he had ice build up. The plane gave one last cough and quit entirely.
He expected his plane to nose down, but it did not. Instead, it began a straight, level flight. In Janssen's opinion, his plane was defying the laws of gravity. His airspeed indicator read 0. Despite his fear, Janssen felt a strange, prickly sensation over his body.
He felt he was being watched by someone... or something. He then saw the cause of his problems, a flying saucer, slightly above and beyond his left wing. He could clearly make out a type of protecting ring with portholes around the UFO.
The object was made of a dull, metallic material that gave the impression of industrial strength... something not made on Earth. To his shock, he could now see a second object, which appeared to be fixed in the sky.
Out of Trouble
He made a decision - restart the magneto, which he had turned off during his stall. He turned both of the magneto switches to the on position. The rotor blade began to turn, slowly at first, and then back to its full power.
Janssen said, "The plane nosed up into a stall, dropped off, picked up airspeed, and steadied under control."
What exactly happened to Janssen on these two occasions, was he visited by craft from another planet, could they have been the same beings that crashed at Roswell. We may never know for certain.
