DISAPPEARANCE OF FREDERICK VALENTICH
“The thing is just orbiting on top of me.”
That was one of the last things 20-year-old pilot Frederick Valentich said before disappearing into thin air, with no trace of oil or metal on land or in sea.
He was flying over the Bass Strait in October 1978, when he called air traffic control to find out more about the aircraft flying just above him.
But air traffic control did not see a blip, except for Valentich, on the radar.
“What type of aircraft is it?” air traffic control asked.
Valentich replied, “I cannot affirm, it is four bright — it seems to me like landing lights”.
The pilot was at 4500 feet and said the “long-shaped” aircraft was playing some sort of a game.
“He’s flying over me two, three times, with speeds I cannot identify,” he told air traffic control.
Valentich then says the aircraft is orbiting above him, and he’s orbiting with it.
“It’s got a green light and sort of metallic,” he said.
Air traffic control attempted to get more details about the aircraft and Valentich cut in on the radio “it is hovering and it is not an aircraft”.
Valentich went silent and 17 seconds later an unidentified, metallic sound seeped through the radio transmission. He was never heard from again.
Almost 40 years on, a scrap of metal from his plane still hasn’t been recovered and it’s as if he disappeared from the face of the earth.
KELLY CAHILL ABDUCTION
The 1993 abduction of Kelly Cahill was actually mentioned on the first new episode of The X-Files.
Ms Cahill was driving home with her husband in Dandenong, Victoria, when a craft flew overhead.
She claims they lost an hour of time and she was rushed to hospital with stomach pains after discovering a small triangle abrasion on her body.
Ms Cahill had no interest in extraterrestrial life and as she drove home with her partner, she thought she saw a bright blimp.
She has recounted her experience in a number of interviews, and said as their vehicle neared closer to the brightness, the lights began to separate into a row of round, orange lights.
“It appeared like there were silhouettes standing in these round, orange circles, like people,” she said in one interview.
The craft then flew away from the field it was sitting in, and Ms Cahill said further down the road they met a bright light, which was like a wall across the road.
Next thing she remembered was driving on the usual dark road, arguing with her husband.
Weeks later, she had recollections of getting out of the car and walking towards the craft.
She said dark beings began to approach her.
“This energy went through me,” she said.
“It was a low level frequency that came in waves, so dense I could physically feel it.
“That absolutely terrified me, I can’t explain the horror I felt and I just began screaming and the minute I did, the eyes on these things lit up and they came charging across the field.”
She said she was lifted off her feet and thrown back and when she sat up, she couldn’t see anything.
She then developed the triangle on her body, and extraterrestrial experts researching Ms Cahill’s case found there were three other people who stopped their cars that night, who describe the same experience as Ms Cahill.
To this day she still doesn’t know what happened to her.

Extraterrestrial life experts say the Knowles family case is one of the most significant close encounters in history.
Faye Knowles was heading to Perth along the Nullarbor Plain in January 1998.
She was with her three sons Patrick, 24, Sean, 21, and Wayne, 18.
The road was deserted at the time and Sean was driving, with his older brother beside him.
Ahead of them was a bright light and Sean decided to chase it.
The light was shaped like an egg and was moving back and forth just above the road.
Sean swerved to miss the object and continued driving.
The egg was now following them and they started to feel the car being lifted off the road.
The mother stuck her arm out the window and felt something soft, rubbery and hot, her arm was then covered in a black dust.
The voices of everybody in the car then became distorted, their talking had slowed and Patrick said after the experience it was as if his brains were being sucked out.
The car then thudded back onto the road and the back tyre burst.
The Adelaide Advertiser reports the family hid in a bush for 30 minutes before heading to the police station.
Ceduna Sergeant Fred Longley said the family was distressed, according to the Adelaide Advertiser.
“They were in a terrible state — even though it was five hours after the incident. Something happened out there. Their car, even after being driven all that way, still had black ash — or dust — over it. Even on the inside,” he said.
