I am delighted to see APRO get a mention,and all the effort that you have done in order to release these files..thank you. I have been interested in the UFO phenomonen for more years than I care to remember, and I was a field investigator for APRO in eastern Canada....Atlantic Canada to be more precise. During my time as an APRO investigator, I was priveledged to meet many interesting people, many of whom were senior personel in the Canadian Air Force who had a wealth of information on their sightings of UFOs. One of these individuals was a highly decorated pilot,with vast experience, related through family connections to the british Royal family.Whilst flying F-86 Sabres in England he was he was scrambled on a number of occasions to intercept UFOs off the east coast, but his aircraft was at all times easily outpaced by the UFOs he was sent to intercept.
I still have in my possession a cherished photograph of myself and Betty Hill together at a remote farm in Nova Scotia where I was investigating multiple visitations on behalf of APRO. Betty was a wonderful person, down to earth and matter of fact,.....the UFO fraternity was left much poorer when she passed on. Anyway I just wanted to say thank you so much for your commitment to bringing these files out for everyone to experience...it,s kind of ironic I guess that probably many younger folk won,t even know what APRO stands for, or are old enough to remember its existence. I am still active in research of UFOs and related subjects here in the UK, and have devoted a serious amount of time and deep research into the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident in Suffolk England over the last few years, and I had for a period of time almost unlimited access to Bentwaters base,where I believe that I may have uncovered some very pertinent information as regards what happened to Larry Warren during that period, with photographs to substantiate. I know all this happened in 1980...a long time ago...but I have been fortunate enough to uncover some things that are still available for scrutiny to a dedicated researcher today. The rendlesham UFO incident has been likened to the "British Roswell" However we are very fortunate here in UK that the evidence has not been lost through the passage of years as is the case with Roswell....I still feel very priveleged to be part of the "open-minded" community after all these years.
Thank you once again......................silverbirch2
