BURNING INFERNO AT FALCON LAKE

The Falcon Lake Incident has been commemorated on a new $20 Canadian coin.

Many consider it the most evidential case in the history of UFO encounters in Canada. It’s a chilling episode of a man being seriously injured. And it could certainly be that this was no accident – that the object in question took a potshot at the witness, who had every reason to be apprehensive about his impending fate.

The case of Stefan Michalak still gets its fair share of media attention and well it should. When the incident occurred on May 19, 1967, approximately a half century ago, the Canadian press ran with the story with headlines across the Providences. This incredible skirmish between a human and the unknown was even dramatized on the widely-viewed “Unsolved Mysteries” television program. Thus, if most Canucks had been in the dark about UFOs up to this point, this incident would doubtlessly have led them into the light with a story that was not going to be easily forgotten or simply go away.

As a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Falcon Lake incident, the witness’s son coauthored a book with one of Canada’s foremost UFO researchers, Chris Rutkowski.

A Polish immigrant, Stefan was an industrial mechanic at a cement plant who had knowledge of automotive machinery. He was also an amateur geologist who spent his spare time prospecting for silver in a region near Falcon Lake, Manitoba, isolated but not that far from the American border.

The son, Stan Michalak, still vividly remembers when his dad came home sick and injured after something devastating transpired in the woodlands on that day so long ago.

In a recently-published, copyrighted story, CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, provides us with all the fascinating details of this incredible incident, a hostile confrontation with what was definitely a renegade UFO.

 The story begins with the recollections of the witness’ son. . .

“I recalled seeing him in bed. He didn’t look good at all. He looked pale, haggard,” said Michalak, who was nine years old at the time and was allowed to see his dad for a couple of minutes on the day after what soon become known as the “Falcon Lake Incident.”

“Then there was the smell.

“When I walked into the bedroom there was a huge stink in the room, like a real horrible aroma of sulfur and burnt motor. It was all around and it was coming out of his pores. It was bad,” said Michalak, who coauthored the book “When They Appeared” with Winnipeg UFO researcher Chris Rutkowski, a writer who has spent many years immersed in researching the unexplained on Canadian soil.

“I was very afraid. My dad had been injured and I didn’t know anything about it,” Michalak told CBC News about that Saturday 50 years earlier.

Within a couple of days, however, not only did he know more — so did much of the public.

After the story about his dad being burned by a UFO ran in the Winnipeg Tribune newspaper “That’s when everything pretty much hit the fan,” Michalak said.

THE ENCOUNTER

He had staked some (silver) claims the prior year and set out on the May long weekend in 1967 to explore some more.

On May 20, 1967, Stefan was near a vein of quartz along the Precambrian Shield in the area when the 51-year-old was startled by a gaggle of nearby geese that erupted into a clattering of honks.

It was at this point that he looked up and observed two cigar-shaped objects emitting a red glow hovering about 45 meters away.

One descended, according to Stefan’s account, landing on a flat section of rock and taking on more of a disc shape. The other remained in the air for a few minutes before flying off.

Believing it to be a secret U.S. military experimental craft, Stefan sat back and sketched it over the next half hour. Then he decided to approach, later recalling the warm air and smell of sulfur as he got closer, as well as a whirring sound of motors and a hissing of air.

He also noted a door open on the side with bright lights inside, and said he heard voices muffled by the sounds from the craft.

He said he called out, offering mechanical help to the “Yankee boys” if they needed it. The voices went quiet but did not answer, so Stefan tried in his native Polish, then in Russian and finally in German. But only the whirr and hiss of the craft responded in his ear.

He claims he went closer and noted the smooth metal of the ship, with no seams. He then looked into the bright doorway, pulling on the welding goggles he used to protect his eyes while chipping at rocks during prospecting.

An accomplished artist, Michalak sat on a nearby rock and sketched the landed UFO.

Inside, Stefan said he saw light beams and panels of various-colored flashing lights, but could not see anyone or any living thing. When he stepped away, three panels slid across the door opening and sealed it.

He reached to touch the craft, which he said melted the fingertips of the glove he was wearing.

The craft then began to turn counter-clockwise and Stefan says he noticed a panel that contained a grid of holes. Shortly afterward, he was struck in the chest by a blast of air or gas that pushed him backward and set his shirt and cap ablaze.

He ripped away the burning garments as the craft lifted off and flew away.

Disoriented and nauseous, Stefan stumbled through the forest and vomited. He eventually made his way back to his motel room in Falcon Lake, then caught a bus back to Winnipeg.

He was treated at a hospital for burns to his chest and stomach that later turned into raised sores on a grid-like pattern. And for weeks afterwards, he suffered from diarrhea, headaches, blackouts and weight loss.

Once the story was out, the RCMP, the air force, the media, various government agencies, and hordes of gawking members of the public descended on the Michalaks’s small River Heights bungalow in Winnipeg.

That’s who Michalak refers to in the title of the book — those endless visitors and phone calls, the media and people camping on the lawn, the people who would follow Michalak to school one day, peppering him with questions.

“It just flipped our lives over,” the younger Michalak said. “It took several years before it finally died down.”

After that, and until the day he died in 1999 at the age of 83, Stefan believed he never should have said a thing, Michalak said.

But, at the time, he felt it was his duty. He wanted others, if they were to see the same thing, to avoid it and not get hurt, Michalak said.

In Poland, before Stefan moved his family to Canada, he was a military policeman with a set of moral guidelines that he lived by — that is, if something happened, it should be reported, Michalak said.

In addition to constant probing from authorities, the family endured condemnation and criticism from the public, Stefan’s sanity was questioned, and Michalak was bullied in school.

Though he wished he hadn’t said anything, Stefan never backed away from the story, either. He also never claimed to have seen aliens and still considered it a secret military craft.

“If you asked him what it was he saw, he could describe it in intimate detail but he would never say, ‘Oh, it was definitely extraterrestrials,’ because there was no evidence to prove that,” said the younger Michalak.

“He might ask, ‘What do you think I saw?’ But right up until he died, his story never changed one iota — nothing about it or how he told it.”

In all those years since, and with some 300 pages of documentation on the encounter, “there’s nothing so far that has flawed his story,” according to the younger Michalak.

So what does he think?

“I’m not so close-minded that I can’t entertain the possibility that it’s otherworldly. I can’t discount that. But without specific evidence to show me that it is, I don’t know,” Stan Michalak said.

“What I can tell you is that I’m an aviation fanatic, a huge aviation buff, and I am very familiar with how aviation technology has advanced in the past 50 years. And there was nothing even close to that in the works anywhere at that time.”

INTENSELY INVESTIGATED

“The case was investigated intensely by a number of levels of the Canadian government and the official conclusion, even from the United States Air Force, was that the case was unexplained,” coauthor Chris Rutkowski noted.

“The Falcon Lake incident is possibly Canada’s best-documented UFO case,” he added.

“It even beats Roswell [the alleged flying disc that landed in New Mexico in 1947] because the United States still doesn’t recognize that anything happened in Roswell out of the ordinary.”

His son again spoke of believing his father had encountered something genuine.

“If Dad hoaxed this — remember, we’re talking about a blue-collar, industrial mechanic — if he hoaxed it, then he was a freakin’ genius,”  Stan Michalak said.

Items were later retrieved from the encounter site, including Stefan’s glove and shirt and some tools, which were subjected to extensive analysis at an RCMP crime lab. No one could determine what caused the burns.

At the landing site was a circle about 15 feet in diameter, devoid of the moss and vegetation growing in other areas of the same rock outcropping. Soil samples, along with samples of clothing, were tested and deemed to be highly radioactive.

So were pieces of metal that were chipped out of cracks in the rock about a year after the incident. The metal had somehow been melted into the cracks.

Many of the items have long since been lost as they were transferred through various authorities and agencies. However, Rutkowski and Michalak still have one of the pieces of metal, which remains radioactive.

Still sick in 1968 with recurrences of the burns showing up on his chest and suffering from blackouts, Stefan went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

“Doctors did a thorough investigation and even sent him to a psychiatrist, who came back with the report that this is a fellow who’s very pragmatic, very down to earth — pardon the pun — and does not make up stories,” Rutkowski said.

This concludes the CBC news story.

THE MYSTERY CONTINUES    

The case was extensively investigated by the Canadian authorities, including their Defense Department. There were a few of the skeptical bent who thought the story a hoax. Most of the public and even the Mounties and Canadian Defense Department were admittedly puzzled and said so.

We can’t say for sure if the UFO attacked the witness on purpose, but they sure as hell could have lowered their guns!

PROJECT MAGNET “EXPOSED”

      CRASHED SAUCERS AND THE SECRET LIFE OF CANADA’S WILBERT B. SMITH

By Sean Casteel

Though it is a little known fact, the truth is that certain individuals with ties to the Canadian government have secretly been promoting the idea that UFOs are operating in Earth’s atmosphere and are piloted not by “monsters,” but by a group or groups of individuals who are as human as we are but are technologically more advanced than the human race.

paul-hellyer-ex-canadian-defense-minister

Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer

Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer (1963-1967) shocked the media several years ago by stating that he was convinced that off-world visitors have been zipping across the heavens for thousands of years, and that it’s not impossible that aliens have infiltrated  our society and are walking the streets undetected because they resemble us almost identically.

But as much attention as Mr. Hellyer’s remarks might have gotten in the press, many decades before, another Canadian had made similar bold remarks concerning Ultra-Terrestrials coming here either from other planets or from a parallel universe.

*** So let us begin by journeying back in time to when UFOlogy was young and the groundwork was being laid for the greatest cosmic adventure the world has ever experienced. “Project Magnet” tells the story of a Canadian radio engineer’s transformation from scientific, nuts-and-bolts UFO researcher to ardent follower of the Space Brothers’ philosophy.

*** We are currently engaged in a crucial metaphysical battle against the forces seeking to destroy mankind. Can we align ourselves with the good forces seeking our salvation? Is it too late to redeem our race from destruction and damnation?

*** Are the flying saucers sent to Earth by God Almighty? Are they His cosmic sign that eventually love will conquer all? “Project Magnet” offers hope in our potential rescue along with hard scientific data on the UFO phenomenon.

*******

Even as an ardent student of UFOlogy, you may not know the name of Wilbert Smith. He is an unsung hero in the field, but remains indisputably important in the more than 50 years since his death in 1962.

PROJECT MAGNET – THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY ARE NOT STARS

            Global Communications CEO Timothy Green Beckley has recently assembled a book that pays tribute to Smith and the 1950s, the era in which Smith pursued the truth of the UFO mystery. The new book is called “Project Magnet,” with the subtitle – “The Objects in the Sky Are Not Stars!”

            Beckley writes in his introduction: “Almost forgotten these days, Smith was a highly-educated engineer who coaxed the Canadian government into establishing Project Magnet, a threadbare project to study and treat reports of UFOs seriously so as to determine who – or what – might be behind this mysterious phenomenon that was seemingly taking over the skies of North America after the end of the Second World War.”

THE SEARCH FOR GEO-MAGNETISM OPENS THE DOOR

Wilbert Smith

Wilbert Smith headed Canada’s clandestine Project Magnet which tracked UFOs on a number of occasions.

Project Magnet began operations in 1950 with the purpose of studying, among other occurrences, magnetic phenomena. Wilbert Smith, a senior radio engineer from the Canadian Department of Transport, was put in charge of the project. The goals of Project Magnet were fueled by the concepts of geo-magnetism, and the belief that it might be possible to use and manipulate the Earth’s magnetic field as a propulsion method for vehicles.

            Smith came to believe that this technology already existed in the mysterious UFOs that had been sighted so frequently in Canada, the U.S. and the rest of the world.  He felt that the “correlation between our basic theory and the available information on saucers checks too closely to be mere coincidence.”

            Nevertheless, Smith’s approach to the study of UFOs was a pragmatic one.

            “It is perfectly natural in the human thinking mechanism,” Smith wrote, “to try and fit observations into an established pattern. It is only when observations stubbornly refuse to be so fitted that we become disturbed. When this happens, we may, and usually do, take one of three courses. First, we may deny completely the validity of the observations; or second, we may pass the whole subject off as something of no consequence; or third, we may accept the discrepancies as real and go to work on them. In the matter of saucer sightings, all three of these reactions have been strikingly apparent. The first two approaches are obviously negative and from which a definite conclusion can never be reached. It is the third approach – acceptance of the data and subsequent research – that is dealt with in this report.”

           wilbert smith clipping To this day, there has never been a clearer statement of how to take an honest and open-minded look at the UFO phenomenon. Smith’s urging his peers to accept the strange and mysterious “discrepancies” as the starting point for serious research has echoed down through UFOlogy in the decades since but has sadly remained mostly unheeded.

            Smith went on to explain that the data he and his team had to work with consisted largely of sightings reports as observed throughout Canada. This included many reports from the field representatives of the Department of Transport, whose job it is to watch the sky and who are trained to do precisely those kinds of observations. Useful data was also obtained from instruments, such as those at ionospheric observatories.

But Smith cautioned against expecting too much from the field stations because of the very sporadic nature of the sightings. And laboratory studies were useless without some kind of specimen with which to experiment, and it was not likely that such a specimen would be obtained any time soon. So, according to Smith, we are then forced to rely on “deductive reasoning,” at least until it is possible to work out procedures more in line with conventional experimental methods.

WHAT WAS THE GOVERNMENT HIDING?

In 1950, prior to the establishment of Project Magnet, Smith was attending what he called “a rather slow-moving broadcasting conference in Washington D.C.” He had some time on his hands so he circulated around, asking a few questions about flying saucers. “Which stirred up a hornet’s nest. I found that the U.S. government had a highly classified project set up to study them, so I reasoned that with so much smoke maybe I should look for the fire.”

Smith subsequently made “discreet inquiries” through the Canadian Embassy staff in Washington, who were able to obtain for him the following information:

  1. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the U.S. government, rating even higher than the A-bomb.
  2. Flying saucers exist.
  3. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Dr. Vannevar Bush, who some maintain was the initial guiding force behind a secret government cabal known as Majestic 12, created to monitor a number of UFO crashes, including the one in Roswell, NM (circa July, 1947) in which several alien bodies were recovered from the wreckage. It was Bush and company’s purpose to foil the flow of information on the UFOs to the American public and to literally censor the truth about the arrival of ETs on our planet.
  4. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.

Smith said his investigations were a matter of simple curiosity and that he began as an extreme skeptic, fully expecting the phenomenon to be manmade or created by natural causes. He gave his credentials as an impartial and qualified researcher, saying, “I am 48-years-old, hold a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, occupy a responsible position in the Canadian government, hold half a dozen patents, am author of several technical papers, and in general enjoy a background in technical work and science indicating at least an average competence to study and report on phenomena of a scientific nature. I have tried so far as possible to use conventional and standard methods and equipment to investigate all possible angles before drawing any conclusions. In other words, I have followed the same general procedures which I would have followed if I had undertaken to study some more prosaic subject, such as radio wave propagation.”

Smith memo project magnet

Official Canadian government document regarding Project Magnet.

One of the foremost revelations in “Project Magnet” is Wilbert Smith’s report that he was told by U.S. officials on his various visits to Washington that they had retrieved at least one UFO that had crashed in the Southwest at Roswell and were examining the remains of the corpses of several alien bodies found within the wreckage (unconfirmed). The revelation to Smith that a craft from outer space may have crashed in the desert is said to have stunned him at first, but later he came to take such bombshell events in stride.

As stated above, American scientists had gone so far as to declare that the existence of flying saucers should be kept more highly classified than the development of the atomic bomb. Because of these revelations, Smith went back home to appeal to his superiors not to let the Americans pull ahead in their findings about these flying discs and urged that Canadian researchers begin their own official study, which was quickly established under the “code name” Project Magnet.

The story of what Project Magnet uncovered is a major part of this just released tome edited by publisher Tim Beckley. The book also includes updated revelations by contemporary researcher Grant Cameron (PresidentialUFO.com) as well as a bonus history of humanoid and creature sightings and close encounters throughout Canada by the late amateur astronomer John Musgrave, who worked while on a grant from Ottawa’s government. Perhaps the most exciting part of this book is the disclosure that Wilbur Smith was a UFO contactee himself and was in touch with others on a regular basis who claimed to have received communications from off-earth dwellers.

MOVING BEYOND SIMPLE PHYSICAL REALITY

It was from this secluded shack on the outskirts of Shirley Bay that Project Magnet operated.

It is important, in the light of where his studies would eventually take Smith, to establish his credibility as a pragmatic scientist approaching the UFO subject in the utmost of “real world” terms. Smith explains, “If we are to rely on sightings data alone, we are bound to get a rather one-sided idea of these creatures. For example, we see saucers traveling at terrific speeds and then suddenly stop or change direction. Under our concepts of physics, no creature of flesh, blood and bone could withstand the terrific forces which would be associated with such actions.  Therefore we are led to assume that the saucerians must be some manner of robot or a creature the like of which we have never encountered.”

He also points out that, in spite of their unknowably high level of technological achievement, the UFO occupants have never simply landed and announced that they were taking over the earth. This is perhaps because they regard us as in the same general category as the other flora and fauna native to this planet and believe our civilization is so primitive as to be indistinguishable from that of the lower animals and insects.

But such speculations don’t necessarily lead us to the truth, according to Smith. Fortunately the UFO occupants HAVE made contact with certain earthlings deemed to be capable of receiving the information and passing it along to others. Along with the many sightings reports Smith began collecting and analyzing claims of contact with the aliens and to assemble what he felt were the mores and ethics of the people from the flying saucers.

“It adds up to a complete and elegant philosophy,” Smith wrote. “These people tell us of a magnificent cosmic plan, of which we are a part, which transcends the lifetime of a single person or a nation or a civilization – or even a planet or solar system. We are not merely told that there is something beyond our immediate experience; we are told what it is, why it is, and our relation thereto. Many of our most vexing problems are solved with a few words; at least we are told of the solutions if we have the understanding and fortitude to apply them.

“We are told of the inadequacies of our science,” he continued, “and we have been given the basic grounding for a new science which is at once simpler and yet more embracing than the mathematical monstrosity which we have conjured up. We have been told of a way of life which is utopian beyond our dreams and the means of attaining it. Can it be that such a consistent, magnificent philosophy is the figment of the imaginations of a number of misguided morons? I do not think so.”

If such is the case and all of this is known, the reasonable person asks, then why has it not been publicized? Why aren’t we studying the sciences gifted to us by the aliens instead of atom bombs?

The answer, Smith tells us, is that it HAS been publicized. Books have been written and thousands of copies sold. There are many periodicals available containing this knowledge, which may be had for a nominal sum. Reports have been prepared by serious investigators and presented “through the proper channels.”

 

THE FLYING SAUCERS AND THEIR ABILITY TO CHANGE “REALITY”

SMITH MAGNETIC LINES

Smith believed UFOs utilized the magnetic polarity of the earth to propel themselves through our atmosphere.

“But it is truly said,” Smith acknowledged, “that one can lead a horse to water but one cannot make him drink. There are probably as many private reasons for not facing up to the facts as there are people who refuse to do so. However, it is consoling to realize that, through the humble and often criticized comic strip and science fiction stories, the younger generation is being conditioned to accept the reality of people from elsewhere, and when given the opportunity to do so avidly assimilate all they can get on flying saucers and the people who fly them.”

One is struck by the overwhelming transformative power the study of UFOs and their occupants often has on people. Smith’s interest in flying saucers began as a mild case of curiosity and over a few years became something like a religious fervor.

In a portion of Smith’s writing collected in “Project Magnet,” entitled “The Battle for Man’s Mind,” he feels called upon to warn his readers about a grave danger we are all facing, either consciously or unconsciously. Two great forces are striving to gain control of man’s mind, a struggle that has been going on from time immemorial.

“But never in the world’s history,” he wrote, “has the conflict been more intense than it is in this present era of confusion and unrest. In the old days, mankind was often made to suffer physically, unspeakable things in the name of power. But today, with man’s mind more developed and better educated, he is now facing the prospect of a refinement of even greater mental and spiritual cruelty – unless he is prepared to protect himself with right thinking.”

Smith describes one of the two great forces as positive, leading us to thoughts of harmony and the concept of the love of God and the brotherhood of man. The other force is negative, encompassing the antichrist philosophy and serving a mad lust for power. The battle takes place on both the physical and metaphysical fronts with the object being the spiritual salvation of mankind or our utter destruction.

 

GOOD, EVIL, AND OUR STAGE OF EVOLUTION

obe

The Space Brothers are concentrating equally hard on sending out positive thoughts of goodwill and brotherly love.

Man’s brain, Smith teaches, operates on the metaphysical plane like a two-way radio, transmitting and receiving messages along the airwaves of the universe. [This is a very apt metaphor, when one considers that Smith was a government expert on radio broadcasting.] Man’s brain is open to both good and bad input, which he either accepts or rejects according to his stage of evolution.

Messages received through esoteric sources, purporting to come from the Space Brothers, who take an active interest in our spiritual welfare, warn us that an even greater conflict is being fought on the metaphysical plane. The lower or negative forces that damned themselves by wrong thinking are projecting strong thoughts earthward in an attempt to bring about our spiritual downfall. On the other hand, the Space Brothers are concentrating equally hard on sending out positive thoughts of goodwill and brotherly love.

“Thus we are being bombarded from the metaphysical plane by two conflicting schools of thought,” Smith wrote. “And free will being the criterion of spiritual advancement, it is left to us which we choose to accept. However, from a purely logical point of view, if we want to save ourselves a lot of sorrow both in this life and lives to come, we should arm ourselves mentally against the onslaught of negative thoughts.”

It is no time for confused or apathetic thinking, which can lead to the exact forms of negativity Smith is warning us against.

 

WHAT ELSE IS INCLUDED IN ‘PROJECT MAGNET’

So “Project Magnet” is more than mere nostalgia. It demonstrates a near prescience on the part of Wilbert Smith, who clearly saw into the nature of our troubled times and the constant struggle our minds are required to muster against evil thought forms and ideas.

            Publisher and editor Timothy Green Beckley talks about other aspects of the book in his introduction.

“I have added relevant material from numerous contributors, as well as from both new and archival sources” Beckley writes. “Grant Cameron (the only provider of reliable “Disclosure” updates as far as I am concerned) is a vast depository of knowledge on Smith, being a Canuck himself, and has been exceedingly helpful in my compilation. And since Smith is certainly the most important figure in Canadian UFO history, no work on Project Magnet, as far as I am concerned, would be complete without a little known manuscript I personally published in 1979 by John Musgrave, which is a chronicle of humanoid and critter encounters North of the American side of the border. I was upset to learn Musgrave went into spirit a number of years ago. His work is one of the best catalogs of UFO encounters of the third kind ever published, and it certainly should be shared with contemporary researchers of UFO lore, as it makes the subject of Project Magnet as complete as it could possibly be.”

So maybe you should choose, of your own free will, to buy a copy of “Project Magnet”? It couldn’t hurt, really, to read how Wilbert Smith’s scientific study of flying saucers grew into a spiritual devotion to his fellow man and to the God who teaches us to love one another.

WALLACE: You say the Canadian official project, what do you mean by the official…?

KEYHOE: There was an official project called “Project Magnet,” and they set up an observatory at Shirley Bay to try to track these things. And…

WALLACE: What happened to the official project? You say there was a project.

KEYHOE: Yes. They ran for about a year and they had one sighting on the gravimeter, which indicated that something… a very large object had flow over there, but they finally decided that they were spending a little bit much money on that, I suppose.

WALLACE: For certain, they wouldn’t have thought that they were spending too much money on it, if they believed that that kind of phenomena existed.

KEYHOE: A lot of people on the project are still working up there on their own time and certain government officials have still kept the lid on the reports in Canada, just as they do down here.
