What has been will be again: The Mantell UFO Incident
The Mantell UFO incident was among the most publicized early UFO reports. The incident resulted in the crash and death of 25-year-old Kentucky Air National Guard pilot, Captain Thomas F. Mantell, on January 7, 1948, while in pursuit of a supposed UFO. Historian David Michael Jacobs argues the Mantell case marked a sharp shift in both public and governmental perceptions of UFOs. Previously, mass media often treated UFO reports with a whimsical or glib attitude reserved for silly season news. Following Mantell’s death, however, Jacobs notes “the fact that a person had dramatically died in an encounter with an alleged flying saucer dramatically increased public concern about the phenomenon. Now a dramatic new prospect entered thought about UFOs: they might be not only extraterrestrial but potentially hostile as well. (Source)
This large, metallic flying craft was then clearly seen from the tower of Godman Air Force Base. The object was described as being an extremely large, round, whitish in color, with a red light toward its bottom side, and seemed to be moving slowly toward the South. A little over an hour after the first reports, Mantell’s group was asked to investigate the anomalous object.
The actual transcripts read:
“Godman Tower Calling the flight of 4 ships northbound over Godman Field. Do you read? Over.
[Pause] Godman Tower Calling the flight of 4 ships northbound over Godman Field. Do you read? Over.”
“Roger, Godman Tower. This is National Guard 869, Flight Leader of the formation. Over.”
“National Guard 869 from Godman Tower. We have an object out south of Godman here that we are unable to identify, and we would like to know if you have gas enough; and if so could you take a look for us if you will.”
“Roger, I have the gas and I will take a look for you if you give me the correct heading.”
One of his three companions in flight received permission to continue his pre-assigned flight plan, while Mantell and the remaining two planes headed to the coordinates of the visual sightings. Mantell led the way in the climb to 15,000 feet, and upon reaching the position, he radioed the following statement back to the control tower. ”The object is directly ahead of and above me now, moving at about half my speed… It appears to be a metallic object or possibly reflection of Sun from a metallic object, and it is of tremendous size… I’m still climbing… I’m trying to close in for a better look.” 18,000, 20,000, 22,000 feet! Too high for the WWII fighters without oxygen! The other two planes turned back, leaving Mantell alone to pursue the giant object. By all accounts, Mantell must have passed out from lack of oxygen at about 30,000 feet, at least his plane leveled off at that height. His plane now began to plunge back toward earth. He crashed a few harrowing moments later on the farm of William J. Phillips near Franklin, Kentucky. Mantell’s watch stopped at 3:16 PM, and his body was still strapped in his plane, which become his coffin. He had spent 45 minutes in a frantic flight into the realm of the unknown. By 3:50 PM, the giant craft was not visible from Godman, but reports continued as the UFO continued southward into Tennessee. (Source)
An challenge to air superiority was met. Before the LOZ took that name they were the Joint Command (JC) - that craft belonged to the JC. When the veil is fully lifted, the spiritual war will spill fully into the physical realm and LOZ will claim air supremacy. The United States has highly advanced crafts and UFO technology but the beast cannot out maneuver our Creator’s elite. They cannot deter the LOZ intrusions of their air space nor any aspect of our pursuits to end their existence. Christ Jesus kingdom will be born in spilt blood and destruction of its enemies. Resist the LOZ and you are a resister to that kingdom. The death dealing consequence is upon the head of any resister. It was a lesson but who understood it? The LOZ are here to crush and put an eternal end to Satan’s kingdoms and to demolish his empire. Man, do tell us what you might think: Man-tell”
