This week Eric and Marie are joined by PA Mufon State Director and Author John Ventre and Kecksburg Researcher Owen Eichler to discuss Owen’s controversial claim that he has solved the Kecksburg Crash that occurred in December 1965. They’ll be on to discuss Owen’s claim that the vehicle that crashed and was recovered by the military was the MK2 sattelite created by General Electric developed for the U.S. Military to photograph and possibly destroy, enemy satellites in space.
John Ventre and Owen Eichler will explore several well-known theories about the 1965 crash including the theories which suggest the object could have been technology recovered under Operation Paperclip (e.g., the Nazi Bell), or possibly the Soviet spacecraft Kosmos 96, or even an actual extraterrestrial vehicle.
On December 9, 1965 at 4:47 pm, something navigated through our airspace and made a semi controlled landing in Kecksburg Pennsylvania. The legend has grown to include one witness who saw a scaly, three fingered hand come out of the top of the UFO, similar to the ending of the 1953 movie “War of the Worlds”, to seeing an alien body on a gurney at Hangar 18 at Wright Patterson Air Force base alongside a cone shaped craft.
John was contacted in February 2015 by Owen Eichler in regards to his theory that the December 9, 1965 Kecksburg UFO incident was potentially a crash and retrieval of a GE Mark 2 reentry vehicle (RV) launched on December 7, 1965. Owen said he has spent ten years researching his theory and believes he is correct. The GE Mark 2 RV has never been mentioned as a possible candidate for Kecksburg. This object was a spy capsule that was kept secret until 1991
