Example text

To the truckdriver Gatlin and Fitz explain he probably witnessed some exceptionally unusual electrical activity: it is quite possible his truck was struck by ball lightning, a very rare but previously recorded phenomenon. To the lady who clutched her Bible they say there were no traces of radioactivity in her front yard where she said the UFO had landed. She responds to this, 'But why should there be? ' And the viewer is left recognizing that while her assumptions are perhaps perverse they are only slightly more strange than those of the US Air Force.

The first they speak to, the fellow driving the pickup truck, insists as he lies in his hospital bed that the thing that came at him on the road had a mind of its own; it was exceptionally real; but he cannot explain it, having no language to describe what he saw. We then learn more of the dead pilot. He joined the Air Force after four years at UC Berkeley: a solid pilot with a perfect recordhe was no 'hog-dog'. His wife, when interviewed, corroborates her late husband's respectability, and we see she lives in an uppermiddle-class suburb.
