Betty Hill Credible?

Subject: Betty Hill Credible?


I met Betty Hill twice in the late '70s. She was nice but maybe
not credible.

On the first occasion of meeting her she was speaking at the
Pease Air Force Base library where she told her story and spoke
of her local group of interested persons reporting sightings and
etc. in the New Hampshire/New England area. She lived nearby in
Portsmouth maybe ten blocks from my home. Sometime, maybe a year
or more after hearing her presentation I saw 'my' UFO.

I was a junior officer copilot stationed at the base living in
town with my wife when, hurried to leave for my aircraft
commander and friend's house for a barbecue when I saw it while
letting the dog out. It was so odd as it wasn't a 'Flying
Saucer' - it was a large box. I yelled for my wife to come quick
but she was doing her make up... and arrived at the door too
late. I told no one for quite a while, afraid of ridicule or
worse. There was nothing in the paper about others seeing the
same thing. Much later I discussed it with my wife and decided
that I would cruise by Betty Hill's home where I found her
working in her garden. I got out of the car and walked up to the
fence and said hello and asked her if she had heard of such a
box like thing (this was long before the Internet!).

She got real "wide eyed" and said, "Oh, yes! I even seen (she
may have said heard) of some that flap their wings!" -And she
was serious. I thought she was just real crazy and quickly got
into my car and drove away. Before getting out of service I
finally talked to the base's semi-official go to person.

I filed my report via the net years later:

This is how I came to this group, in fact, Colm Kelleher,
personally recommended this site when I wrote him dissatisfied
with the NIDS list that was up for a while. I've been reading
this list for quite some time now.

I have never seen another UFO but I'll never think about things
the same. I wonder how many others see something once and find
their thinking changed for ever? How I would love to see one of
the Black Triangles once.

Respectfully,

Bryan
