A POLICEMAN has broken his silence about an encounter with a flying saucer where he claims he could ‘clearly see’ aliens in the cockpit -- after 70 years of silence.
Neil John McIntyre worked as a policeman in Shepparton, northern Victoria, Australia -- but says he had his close encounter aged 12, in 1947, at around the same time as the Roswell incident.
He and his friend Max -- now deceased -- both saw the aliens for ‘four or five minutes’, he told local paper the Shepparton News -- but swore not to speak of it, as Max had a promising boxing career and didn’t want to be associated with UFOs.
He’s even drawn chilling pictures of the strange beings he saw inside the craft, which he claims was hovering near a lamppost, ‘sucking power’ out of it.
McIntyre told local newspaper Shepparton News, ‘It was a Sunday, and it was a cold, dark night.
“It was a bit smaller than a Melbourne tram, it was similar to flying saucers seen around the world. You could clearly see two guys (in the craft) that we called aliens in the front cockpit. Their hands were not in my view, but I got the impression they were controlling some sort of instrument. It might have been extracting power from the lamp post.” Metro.au
