The Shag Harbour UFO case - What the people involved thought it was






Most people within ufology have seen the headline in the Halifax Chronicle Herald from Saturday, 7 October 1967, which read: "Could Be Something Concrete in Shag Harbour UFO - RCAF," largely because it is the more sensational one. But here is the follow-up reportage a few days later - still rife with speculation and uncertainty (understandable all things considered), but also showing that an ET spacecraft was the furthest thing from anyone's mind. The explanation that most people credited was a secret American craft of some sort... which is what Laurie Wickens, the first person to see the UFO and report it, still thinks it was, all these years later - and I agree.

A military craft capable of traveling by air AND under the sea?

Yes. The upper echelon of military tech is always two or three decades ahead of the private sector. Many US military projects to develop unique structural designs relied upon nuclear fission for propulsion. Given the fear that this kind of thing induces, and the advantage conferred upon our forces, the designs and projects remain secret to this day.
