Black Box UFO Secrets

Black Box UFO SecretsSince the earliest years of man flight, pilots and astronauts from around the world have encountered UFOs high in our skies and beyond.

The History Channel's Black Box UFO Secrets reveals for the first time the cockpit and control tower audio recordings of pilot and astronaut confrontations and sightings of unidentified flying objects high in our skies.

From a detailed account of one of the very the first reported pilot case - the Arnold case in 1947 - to recent recordings over New England and Texas and NASA recordings and video from 2005, the programme features interviews with pilots, witness and experts, including UCLA's Joseph Nagy, actor Ed Asner, and pilot/UFO researcher Don Berliner.

    I feel this is one of the better efforts to bring accurate accounts to those interested.It was good to see David Sereda doing his usual fine work. Personally, I'm past the nuts 'n' bolts aspect of ufo studies and I mention this because of my own encounters. Hope this one gets many views.

  • steve

    when the s*** hits the fan, I'm with the aliens...are you reading this my masters!

  • rob combs

    I am praying president obama finally is the president who has the balls to reveal what our government has know for 100 years; these people put US here millions of years ago; wake UP sheeple; they are REAL....

  • Mike

    Very well done but who in the government is talking? The proof is there its just so easy to see. Its also easy to see the government are craping themselves regarding this stuff.

  • Madhukar

    Guys ,,,, we have seen something..so what next..have you noticed its shape.. and
    also have you noticed one thing..most of the UFOs are eliptical/circular disc shape..and they
    move forward backward sideward very fast and also rotate just like any other planet rotate and move....
    so what i had thought in my mind was... just notice our planets ..they are eliptical/round what ever it is..they rotate themselves..and also revolve with a lot of speed..
    probably due to gravitational pull and centrifugal reaction..
    Is the planets shape..and their speed of rotation/revolving fast..in galaxy..
    made the extra terrestrial species to design/movement of their jets like that..so thay can achieve that unbelievabe speed?

  • Ned

    Excellent documentary.

  • Carl Hendershot

    I need a new UFO DOCU. Getting sick of the same old same old.
    Still its entertaining.

  • Mary

    This was an excellent documentary! So why don't they just tell us the truth? What's the big deal? I am excited to know we are not alone. I think it is a beautiful thing.

  • celticwarrior

    great documentary and to hear the nasa tapes just blows my mind,and im with you steve,when they arrive im with them.lets hope they dont bring that frog from mars you mentioned on your mars post..hahaha i laughed my head off to that..RE CARL HENDERSHOT check out the discloure project documentary on this site for somthing a bit different to the run of the mill ufo documentary....

  • Carl Hendershot

    @celticwarrior Thanks. I have seen it a while back. Very interesting for sure. Good looking out. =)

  • Haroon

    Ever wondered that how hard could it be for any government to make a UFO prototype and fly it in the sky to scare the s*** out of people or to make other people wonder if it's really an alien ship from outer space?

    I'm not saying that there is no life outside our galaxy but come on people, how the heck are u believing in UFO's being real!!

    Watch the "through the wormhole" documentary on this site and you will know what I mean.

  • Wilber

    Haroon, "how the heck are u believing in UFO's being impossible!!"

    Much evidence refutes the naive notion that it is impossible for other advanced races to be among us. Much evidence even shows that they have been here for much longer than we have.

  • Locky

    Not 1 convincing video confirming the existence of an alien craft. The video of the crew in NZ is laughable! It is obviously fake. If you don't believe me go out and buy a lazer pointer, then point and shake it against a wall.

    I will never deny that they COULD exist, however I need much better footage then this.

    Very entertaining though ;)

  • Farren

    Locky,

    So incident after incident of recorded FAA and military aircraft audio transcripts mean nothing to you? The pseudo-skeptics who are really just deniers (won't acknowledge truth even if it's presented, whereas true skeptics would see evidence that refutes their stance, and adapt, as all science does in progressing forward) love to do this. They ignore evidence that is impossible for them to deny, and focus on making fun of or belittling the subject.

  • Locky

    Farren,

    So incident after incident of recorded FAA and military aircraft audio transcripts mean nothing to you?

    Unfortunately yes. FAA and military aircraft audio transcripts mean little to me. Without proper evidence, these sightings could be any number of things (meteors, comets, ships, beacons, lightening balls etc etc) . Also, Don't forget that people make a lot of money selling these stories to media outlets. Until i see real footage of a alien ship, I will be the first one to believe it. I mean cmon, if you believe the footage presented by the NZ crew as full proof, then there is absolutely no point of us talking.

    They ignore evidence that is impossible for them to deny, and focus on making fun of or belittling the subject...

    When real evidence is provided, my belittling will cease.

  • Farren

    Locky, you may be waiting a long time to personally see an alien ship. But there are several areas in the US and around the world that have increased sitings.

    If military and FAA and pilot evidence over and over isn't enough for you, then you may want to keep your head in the sand.

  • gero2006

    This documentary shows evidence of 'unidentified flying objects'. It then invites the viewer to identify these objects as evidence of alien life. No additional evidence is produced to support the conclusion that UFO sightings are evidence of alien life. This means that very big claims are made on very flimsy foundations.

    I do not care whether there is alien life or not, either way it is still a wonderful world. I do object when people hand me a bucket of stinking fish and tell me to breathe deep and enjoy the beautiful fragrance. The 'UFO are aliens' crowd make illogical and incredible assertions so I reject them. The 'authorities' are just as crass so I reject them too. I prefer to make up my own mind. And when the evidence is inconclusive my position remains unpersuaded either way.

    I watch 'conspiracy theory' documentaries to see if anyone has something more to offer than another load of rotten codswallop in a bucket. Nope. So far, none of these claims adds up to anything. Chalk this documntary up with the others.

  • James

    so who you gonna call

  • http://www.cjrocky.com rockysbeats

    haroon > so your saying that the government made an extremely enormous craft to follow and scare their own space missions?? and gave it the ability to change its flight path drastically at high speed? cmon open your eyes!

    "This documentary shows evidence of ‘unidentified flying objects’. It then invites the viewer to identify these objects as evidence of alien life. No additional evidence is produced to support the conclusion that UFO sightings are evidence of alien life. This means that very big claims are made on very flimsy foundations."

    alrite then, lets look at this case from a logical point of view shall we? with ALL the info this documentary adds, the only logical reason is to believe there is something there, making up excuses like "oh its a wether balloon, hurr durr durr" are completely nonsense, and these people talking about this really have MUCH more credibility than the government, as it is a very secretive place

    lets have some more logic, there MUST be civilizations out there that are much MUCH more advanced than us, why isnt it reasonable to think that they want to search out new life too, like we do, and i would really like to hear your opinion on this, cause you cant argue against that, unless ure a biblef*g who believes mankind is 5k years old (hahahahahaah)

    but then again, why am i discussing this with you? you seem completely lost in all that is called logic. have fun living your empty live in this extremely small world you call your head. you really show how narrowminded some of mankind are. illogical and narrowminded, so grow up

  • Clayton Bigsby

    Why do I watch this? UFOs and Bigfoot will never be proven because.........just because.

  • paul

    I am too skeptical but have an open mind, I see, I know that there are events that can not be explained over the centuries, but I still can not find myself believing even when I want to believe. I have even been in a car with friends driving in the country late at night, that was followed by lights in the sky for a while and that could not be explained. But, they were just lights, no prove of anything at all.

  • http://conspiracydetective.blogspot.com Conspiracy Detective

    Its getting silly now, so much is coming out, how long will the government take to tell us the truth? we are not stupid and can handle the truth. Learn you true history. Take a look ay my blog for more conspiracy theories

  • MyReligionIs2DoGood

    @Everyone who didn't see a UFO yet:
    Visit James Gilliland, ECETI Project, Troutlake, WA, close to Mt. Rainier, and stay there for a night or two. Chances are quite good you will see one or more.

  • oddsrhuge

    I called Alien Busters...but they just ended up breaking the saucer...morons

  • oddsrhuge

    as an unapologetic "conspiracy theorist" (love that term) I believe that people have seen these anomalies. However, its just a distraction from things that I really want to see answered.

    Right now, unless there is, as I saw in MIB an immediate threat from these Aliens...I'd rather just concentrate on the fact that we no longer have any say in the day to day dealings of our planet...

    If there are Aliens...I hope that Money didn't make them space explorers... cause we have enough of that idiocy here.

    And if they are infinitely more advanced than us...they would have probably just contacted ... well frankly...me...I'm pretty unassuming and I can rock a global podium.

    All I really want, is an audit of the entities who currently call themselves our leaders...there is something definitely alien about them.

  • ForeverDove

    Ive read quite a few of your comments on different videos and its clear to me that your egotistical, you have a "what about me" complex going on.
    You should perhaps change your name to "me me me me me" or "I I I I I".
    Its because of people like you why they probably cant be bothered with contact on a global scale.
    Theres too many "You You You's" out there.

  • oddsrhuge

    Yeah thats it...I'm egotistical...HUH?

    If thats what you get out of my comments, I suggest that you try to stay away from a career in psychology.

    I have a lot of angst. Egotism, is feeling that everyone should serve me. Everyone, in my idiom, should serve the downtrodden.

    However, I am not one of the current, (media) definition of "downtrodden". So I feel guilt, because all I can do is talk.

    But keep on trying! You almost have an opinion and maybe you can make a valid point in the near future.

    From reading your posts, I will bet that you believe in intelligent design.

    i agree but it seems like people don't care about the truth, hell idk if people are ready for truth, could be wrong but it just seems like everyone is too selfish :

  • eze60

    Because we are not driven nor made up of strict logic, proof in effect cannot rely on these narrow conventional scientific standards. We reach a point where we dismiss possibilities of what these things cannot be in order to get closer to what they probably are. In effect to just conclude that this or that are just lights or just unknown implies a state of possibly fearing the incredible possibility of what they are.
    We have feelings and instincts many of the times that are driven by an unexplained sense of wisdom. Because of this reality, when something amazing is observed, some of us will draw an intuitive and yet intelligent conclusion as to what it feels that we have just observed.
    This is what you've gotten from many of these very credible sources.
    So your desire for a simple math to produce truth isn't much less than
    the sophistication that some of us embody.
    In effect i can only chalk up your comments to pragmatic and narrow-minded idiocy driven by a fear to accept that which lies outside the box.
    Scientific process of proof does not evidence make. That is human.

  • eze60

    You read like you overlook the fact that these sightings are by people who can differentiate between all of the number of other things that you think these things might be.
    You are assuming that certain people cannot know what they see because they cannot differentiate what behaves intelligently as opposed to what behaves naturally. As stipulated in the documentary in many instances, all of these things that you mentioned, which are actually part of the 90 or so percent of the dismissed cases were dismissed in this documentary. This documentary is presenting the 5-10% exception. And yet you still seem to be having an issue accepting it.
    You want scientific proof of something otherworldly/ultra-dimensional implication, see the "Hesdalen lights" and "The new twirl order" here on top docs.
    Your requirement of strict scientific evidence may have more to do with how you're wired as opposed to those who can accept proof presented in "out of the box" human evidence. You represent one of the two conflicting sides of what makes us human. But the balance seems to elude you.

  • eze60

    Very well put! That is my point. True skeptics and scientists don't have an issue accepting that which is proven unconventional in an unconventional standard of evidence because their goal is truly to progress and evolve.
    The rest of so called skeptics and scientists, which eerily represent a majority, are driven by something that goes against the grain of true progress.

    Then again, true genius is usually represented by a minority.

    Thanks for making this point.

  • fender24

    hey.
    got some thoughts for ya.

    There are better proofs of aliens out there. What about the stuff theyve found in anchient temples all around the world. Like small aircrafts have been found which look similar to modern day airplanes. The Mahabararta and several indian texts, which tell us about a anchient combat in the sky among three flying cities at that time called manas. What about The pyramids which are build the exact same way, earthquake proof, aligned with sertain stars, usually orion and whats with orion that is so special to these anchients?. well google may got the answer for that one ;D. You got proofs from anchient artists, like rembrandt eleven aert de gelder, and other artists around the world have choosed to add what looks like disk chaped objects,, so.. ufo observations was as normal then as today?

    then we got our own DNA. one link makes us more special then other species on earth. Like some god, or alien put it there for us like a proof to see when we got advanced enough. if there was one place they would want to hide theyre existence wouldnt it be in ourselves?. just think about it.,what people all around the world have said, someone decended from heaven. the gods/aliens made us in theyre own image.

    and here's the best one. the bible have the best ufo stories.
    The mount sinai event where moses leaves earth in something which ,could, be described as a spacecraft. This cloud decended from heaven with much thunder and lightning and fire as It came down to mount sinai, and they describes further how the ground shaked as it took of with moses. further moses is describing our planet as astronauts today does, how incredible they knew our earth was round aswell. People thought they saw god, but listen to it. we got a touchdown here!. what we are reading here is an actual ufo sighting two thousand years ago, people wrote down what they saw then.

    i read the bible because i think the contents has alot answer between the lines. and it has already given me answers. people think it is crapp ive thought the same untill a year ago i realize now there are more to those stories. its funny how the bible and science go hand in hand.
    so we went from livin in caves with primitive equipment and just simply moved out making pyramids and knew more about our own solarsystem then we can today? i dont think so.

  • Godsclaws

    I watched another doco somewhere years ago stating that we are being studied by these UFOs which is why they follow planes and float around but so far haven't been hostile or friendly. I believe this is what we would do if we found an alien world so it seems pretty legit that thats whats happening here on earth

  • http://twitter.com/SimonSharman UFO Talk

    Love this documentary. Nothing more convincing than hearing actual recordings of airline pilots and radar operatives. Where are those debunkers now eh? WHERE I ask you?!?!?! Hiding in their narrow minded little mental prison cells, that's where......

    Hate to burst your bubble, but UFO doesn't mean alien spaceship.

  • kompikos

    aircraft pilots don't use telecommunications for fun and when they report something they are extra cautious about what they say. Even more than them, are astronauts. So when these particular people say they are having UFO contact, I believe them. Period.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gurcharansingh.khamba Gurcharan Singh Khamba

    its good step.

  • dave.

    Airline pilots and astronauts are among the most credible of persons when it comes to making reliable, trustworthy observations in both the field and sky. Because of the training they've undergone and the years of personal experience an individual pilot may have, one might be hard pressed to doubt the authenticity of the reports given. If they were reporting on anything other than a UFO, no one would question as to what it was they saw. It's only when UFOs or flying saucers are mentioned, that people raise their eyebrows and begin to doubt, despite the credibility of the witness(es) This is because of the years of conditioning we here in America have undergone. When government, as well as media, responds to UFO and alien reports with a scoff or a well-timed joke, it tells people that this is something that is going to bring ridicule and embarrassment to those who go public. Incidentally, this runs contradictory to what some skeptics claim about witnesses who fabricate sightings in order to gain attention, popularity and money from the telling of their stories. The fact is, those who do go public with claims of contact from aliens or have UFO photos are inviting great ridicule, humiliation, harassment and intimidation into their lives. Some witnesses have lost jobs, been forced to move and even lost friends and suffered the break up of their family because of the negative attitudes society has towards those who claim UFO and alien interaction.

    Informative information is crucial to inform the two legged human sleeping human sheep that we are being visited & that there's more than one off world beings already among us. What you don't realize this may shock you, most of them look like you. These lights are enter-dimensional beings. There able to bend space & time, time travel abduct animals & human at will. Your own secret government knows about them, this is no secret. We have been in a star wars program for many years. This is why the government has concentration camps in America because they know what's coming there must be a brave new world coming from the horizon.

  • Chris Murphy

    if a ufo landed ppl wood still say it didn't happen.

  • Sten Hereli

    These shows would be much more useful if they both:
    1) Clearly marked on-screen which information (e.g. audio, film) was reenactments, obtained through FOIA, etc - i.e. information helping those who want to separate fact (or record at least) from fiction (reenactments)
    2) Create a companion site (e.g. on wikipedia) on which every source is referenced

    This show is better than most such shows in my experience as it doesn't overly sensationalize the information it presents. But such shows need to be more trustable by providing full disclosure and references.

  • Peter

    I understand were your coming from but fear you wont find any answers to that which you seek in docs like this one. Enjoy for entertainment or as a look at a particularly believer mindset. Docs such as these are too one sided (in wanting to believe) and so take and present everything on face value with no analysis of the veracity of the same. In this case 'shaky cam' lights in the sky get to equal alien visitors, hmm... Those in the know (if anyone actually is of course) must be laughing their asses off, but that's another conspiracy story!
