Needles UFO Crash followup: In May 2008, a large object with a turquoise glow plummeted out of the sky and crashed into the earth southwest of Las Vegas, NV. Eyewitnesses say it was not a meteorite since several military helicopters hauled it away. …
In an interview with journalist Linda Howe, Bob says he saw at least five helicopters flying in formation, including a large sky crane. The crane picked up the oval shaped object, still glowing, and flew away, heading in the direction of Las Vegas. One odd detail, the choppers arrived only 17 minutes after the object crashed. He described it to Hayes.
“It was about the size of a semi-trailer, he says, oblong shaped thing,” said Hayes.
Out of the blue, the station got a call from a friend in Laughlin who said the Laughlin Airport had been inundated on the night of the crash with so-called Janet planes. That’s the airline that flies workers to top secret Area 51. Costigan says the airport could not confirm this because no one is on duty after 6 p.m. at night, not even in the tower. – naturalplane
