Thanks Isaac! Of course, although many UFO buffs continue to laud the Canadian government's recent "disclosure" of UFO docs, the reality is that these have always been available to the public by visiting the National Archives in Ottawa. I've been there several times, as have other researchers such as Grant Cameron and Stan Friedman. The only difference now is that (in parallel to Britain), the number of public inquiries about UFOs led the Archives to scan large numbers of docs and make them available online. Still, the large numbers of docs has been unwieldy to peruse, either way. Your idea of using a batch file to upload them will help us greatly. >Other sections of that post include some highlights from the >files. >Most of the highlights will be familiar to many members of this >List, particularly the documents relating to Falcon Lake >incident (Section 4) and Shag Harbour (Section 5). >However, I don't recall seeing any discussion in UFO books or on >this List of the documents and photos I highlight in Section 3 >of that post.

When you had asked me about this case earlier, I had not heard of it, either. I've been through much of the Canadian archives (both physically and online) but had not seen this. One sensational UFO website has reproduced these docs recently with a note that they are about the Falcon Lake case, which is incorrect. The photocopied newsclippings that are part of this file are about the Falcon lake case, but the recovered debris is something else entirely. It's interesting that the debris was found in northern Canada, not all that far away from where a witness saw an object fall from the sky into a lake, about eight years earlier. This case was also not reported or well-known. I reproduced a doc about this in one of my recent books and also in my blog: http://uforum.blogspot.com A few other things come to mind: Dr. Ian Halliday of the Canadian NRC was well aware of this case, but never mentioned it in any correspondence with me or other researchers, and certainly not in any astronomy conferences we attended together. Halliday was also involved in the Falcon Lake investigation and was instrumental in setting up a Canadian UFO reporting network to assist in locating meteorite falls for scientific purposes, since in his publicly-stated opinion, UFOs were mostly meteors. Given that Canada appears to have a history of curious UFO and vehicle crashes, it is interesting to speculate that there was more military involvement in this program than had been thought. Known and documented Canadian "UFO crashes" include: March 15, 1960 A U-2 spy plane made a forced landing on Wapawekka Lake in northern Saskatchewan. June 22, 1960 An object is seen to fall into Clan Lake, Saskatchewan. http://uforum.blogspot.com/2010_01_01_archive.html October 17, 1968 Fragments of a "space vehicle" found near Wollaston Lake in Saskatchewan are received by the NRC. January 24, 1978 Cosmos 954 crashes into northern Canada, mostly near Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories but also, of course, Saskatchewan. I think people living in northern Saskatchewan need to wear hardhats. >Since I know that there are quite a few Canadian's on this List, >I thought some of you might be interested. We are! Thanks again, Isaac! The Michalak docs you reproduce are well-known, and I have included many of them (and the sketch of the object) in several of my books. I have also discussed the Falcon Lake case in detail in FSR and the Journal of UFO Studies, among others. I was flown down to the NBC set with the Michalak family for the Unsolved Mysteries segment, which still ranks as one of its most remarkable cases. Listen to 'Strange Days...
