- An ongoing additional experiences for this family. Photos
have been supplied by the lady and a diagram which was drawn by her daughter.
- Date: June 6, 2001
- HBCC UFO Research Note: I found this case to be really
fascinating and I am looking for answers and folks who may have been on
the flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to DFW on June 6, 2001. As you will read
in this story below, 45 minutes of time cannot be accounted for. No announcements
were ever made by the pilot or flight crew on the aircraft to indicate
the flight would be late on arrival at it's destination, but did at the
last minute inform the passengers that the aircraft would be pulling into
a different gate than expected. Matter of fact the passengers weren't even
aware that the flight was that late. It was family members and friends
who met the plane who informed the passengers that they were 45 minutes
behind. The watches the passengers were wearing indicated the plane was
on time, but when they looked at the different clocks in vehicles or around
the airport and at home, they displayed 45 minutes ahead of the passengers
watches. What happened on the flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to DFW ?
- Another fact to this case is that one of the ladies flying
that day has had numerous experiences, scoop marks and other marks have
been left behind from ongoing events, which has very much involved not
only herself, but her young daughter and husband and the child's grandfather.
Whatever is taking place, it is happening to the entire family.
- Below you will read the accounts of some of the events.
- Brian Vike from HBCC UFO Research is again requesting
folks who were on this flight, National Airline from Las Vegas, Nevada
to DFW on June 6, 2001 to please contact me. Also if anyone reading this
may have access to the passenger manifest, would you please contact me
with the information. Lastly, if ground crew, flight tower employees and
pilots who have knowledge of this event, again please contact me with any
information, even if you think it may not be much. All input is welcomed
and very important to have while investigating this case.
- I should also mention, the first part of this report
was sent to me by the lady's father, which I named Part #1
- The report which came directly to me from the lady, herself,
I named Part #2.
- Please email your detailed information to: Brian Vike
- All personal information will be kept private. Thank
- PART #1 - From the Lady's Father
- Brian Vike,
- Thanks for your reply. OK, there's sort of a preface
to all of this. My daughter is 33, above average intelligence, college
grad, uses no drugs, has no mental illness and isn't given to fantasy.
She has a healthy interest in things that aren't usually talked about on
the six o'clock news, but, if anything, she is scrutinizing and doesn't
accept anything simply on someone's "say so".
- Further, I taught her while raising her that there are
indeed unexplainable UFOs. For years odd things have happened to her. By
that I mean she sometimes turns up with strange marks, bumps under the
skin and, yes, sometimes scoop marks too. After a point she has sometimes
wondered if they were due to abductions (no, we didn't try the black light
test, we only recently learned of that).
- She's had a few vivid dreams, (well she called them "dreams"
for lack of a better explanation and lack of hard evidence) that involve
bright lights, strange noises, sensations of floating etc., but no alien-type
beings. These don't happen with regularity though.
- Also, her 10 year-old daughter also has scoop marks sometimes.
She is a bright normal child in most categories but was born with a condition
called "absence of corpus collosum " which means that the connecting
part between both brain halves is not present. Because of that she is speech
disabled, with a limited vocabulary and talking mostly in grunts. She is
above average intelligence according to tests. She also clearly has a noticeable
level of ESP (no formal testing involved), although most kids seem to if
only their parents would acknowledge it. BUT ever since she was a toddler
she not only sees invisibles, she sometimes also has extended and interactive
conversations with them in her own way. As an aside let me add that due
to her condition, and in the effort to improve it, she's been extensively
tested every way possible by physicians, psychologists, and even a couple
of neurologists, and given a clean bill except for her one condition.
- About two years ago my granddaughter drew a picture and
sort of shocked my daughter when my daughter asked what it was. Again,
since my granddaughter can't speak much she has to sign (it's a crude and
expedient form of signing taught by her grade school). Bottom line: my
granddaughter communicated to my daughter that it was a picture of a UFO,
that she'd been "beamed" aboard it, and that other humans were
onboard too, some of whom were in distress. However, she didn't give a
discernible description of anything that could be interpreted as aliens.
I would add that this was quite a time before the airing of Spielberg's
- The below diagram was drawn by the fellows granddaughter.
- Before I continue, let me rewind about 44 years to a
"dream" I had as a 13 year-old. This could nominate me for a
loony, I suppose, but it might also be relevant. I had a vivid "dream"
in which I'd just been deposited on the ground outside of my house by a
"flying saucer" (that, of course, was what everyone called them
back then). The craft was odd shaped in that it was sort of "fat",
and about 30 feet in diameter and silently hovered about that high off
of the ground. It had evenly spaced multi-colored lights about the size
of cantaloupes around the middle, horizontally, midway between the top
and bottom of the craft. The only sound I heard was something that could
be described as a really powerful camera flash going off. I had the sensation
of being told, without words, to return to my bed and go back to sleep.
- The next morning I noticed that the door from my room
to the street was partially open, the bottom of my feet were dirty, and
there were small pieces of gravel in my bed. I told no one and just wrote
it off as a dream. But since then I've wondered why the craft I saw had
no resemblance at all to any that were depicted in "sci fi" movies
of that era. Actually, back then, I'd only seen a few "sci fi"
movies, including "The Day The Earth Stood Still", but none contained
a craft similar to the one in my dream. Only a few years ago did I see
one like it on some UFO website on the Internet. Perhaps all just a coincidence
and I make no claims one way or the other, although I've also read it speculated
that abductions tend to run in families. I've had no similar events or
dreams since then. And as far as I've noticed, I've never had a scoop mark
(but I've never actually looked for them either), but sometimes I do notice
strange silver-like scars that I don't remember a cause for like by being
- However, being a clumsy male, who knows, sometimes I've
torn the hell out of myself working on my vehicle and doing house repairs
but never noticed until much later anyway.
- Please note that prior to her experience of missing time
I hadn't told my daughter about the "dream" I had as a kid. I'd
told no one and hadn't even thought about it in decades.
- OK, Brian, that's the "preface", now for an
account of my daughter's missing time.
- We were going to try getting hold of a passenger manifest
but that proved impossible due to the airline having gone out of business
after my daughter's flight. Please also note that her watch was a Seiko,
accurately set, and showed a time that disagreed with all other time pieces
(airport, home, car, etc.) by 45 minutes, AND that after that it never
showed any "lost" time.
- Her account:
- Hello. I don't normally do this sorta thing and I don't
generally even believe in about 99.9% of the alien abduction stories I
- I recently visited Las Vegas from Dallas. On my way back
from Vegas, the plane arrived approximately 45 minutes late. This was unknown
to any of the passengers however, and the pilot mentioned nothing about
it until the very last minute when he informed us that for some reason,
the plane would be landing at a different gate than expected.
- When I first got off the plane, I thought everyone was
joking with me. It wasn't until I was in my car and then later at home
that I started to realize that the plane was really that late. I never
bothered calling back to find out more info about it, though my father
kept urging me to do so. He made it sound as if it was the fault of the
airport and not the fact that our plane was
- As a matter of fact, no one even knew about it until
we had landed and found out from the people that were waiting on us (family,
etc.) that the plane was so late it had been moved to THREE different gates!
- Here is the flight info:
- National Airline from Las Vegas, Nevada to DFW
- June 6, 2001
- Ticket Number: 0071045514587
- National Airline posted to credit card account on May
- I checked my watch and it appeared to me that we were
landing on time. Everyone later made such a big deal over us being late
saying "what happened to you guys???" I thought they were just
joking or something since my watched showed me landing at the proper time.
I didn't even really believe them until I got in my car and saw the clock
was approx. 45 minutes faster than what my own watch was reading. I even
checked the time when I got home and it corresponded to the clock in my
- I flew out there alone to meet up with two friends who
had driven in from Las Angeles. So I didn't know anyone else on the flight
back. And being that I was in denial about the plane being late until I
got in my car and home, I didn't think to ask anyone else what their watch
said. But based on the fact that the Pilot never said anything about being
late, I would guess everyone else thought we were on time too. Because
45 minutes is a long time to be late when the plane left on time. That
is something you think he would explain on the speaker before landing.
But he didn't.
- I started thinking about the flight. I had fallen asleep.
I think most of the people had fallen asleep for some reason, so maybe
being late was announced while we were out (which I doubt because like
I said, no one, not even the pilot, knew we were arriving late). But I
am just trying to give the benefit of the doubt here.
- The odd thing was, on my flight TO Las Vegas, everyone
was cheerful and upbeat. There was so much talking since it was a morning/afternoon
flight! We departed Dallas and landed before the estimated arrival time
in Las Vegas (by about 15 minutes or so).
- But on the flight back from Las Vegas to Dallas, it was
approximately the same time of day, only it was completely different. It
started off with conversation going on between passengers but it soon got
very quiet......oddly quiet.
- And from what I remember, we all boarded the plane, got
seated and situated. We departed Las Vegas on time. Not early, not late.
Everyone was talking and carrying on once we got up into the air. They
were serving breakfast on this flight. It was some sort of breakfast sandwich
with ham and eggs on it. But it seems like it was during breakfast that
people started to get really quiet. Yes, I realize they were eating and
whatnot, but on other flights I've been on, the noise usually continued
right through the food.
- Anyway, we all finished, and they took up the trash.
I remember watching out the window. The sky was clear blue and there were
many very white fluffy clouds. I LOVE watching out the window. Besides,
I knew I was flying over Nevada and that is as close as I've ever been
to Area 51. I was hoping to see a UFO! No way was I going to go to sleep!
I figured if ever I would see one, it would be there. Of course, I saw
- And I started getting SO drowsy. My eyes were watering
and I couldn't stop yawning. Granted I had been staring at slot machines
all weekend..heh...but...I just kept thinking how VERY weird it was that
no one was talking anymore. It was so quiet, I remembered thinking I was
glad that I was no longer eating because even the sound of chewing might
blast everyone awake! Which now, looking back on it, I guess is kinda odd
because....I don't even think I remember hearing very much engine noise
- I started to notice that some of the people in the plane
were going to sleep (without pillows from the stewardess as if maybe they
hadn't expected to go to sleep). And I kept fighting off the drowsiness.
It was a heavy sorta feeling too... Like I said, there was no way I was
going to go to sleep and miss the chance to watch out the window. Besides,
I was excited about going home and telling everyone about the awesome time
I had in Vegas. That was my first time to ever go. I don't remember ever
actually falling asleep. Usually I can remember. I don't remember dreaming
or anything like that either. I just remember being awoken to the pilot
coming over the speaker saying that we would land in Dallas in about 15
- I noticed many of the people around me were just waking
up too...and that it was still quiet... Then when we were just about to
land, the pilot came back on and said that the airport has switched landing
gates, we would be arriving in a different gate than what had been scheduled,
and thanked us for flying. Everyone stayed quiet even after that point.
I just felt really groggy.
- A few weird things have happened since this vacation
which was a couple of summers ago, which led me to your web site.
- So hopefully this is just some weird "normal"
flight situation. But I thought I would ask you and see if you had ever
heard of such a thing.
- End of account.
- Additional Information
- As an aside, I didn't mention an event that occurred
with my daughter's husband a few years back. Now, this is going to sound
a little nuts. One afternoon, he simply disappeared from the house. Gone.
For about a half hour or so he just wasn't there. He was last seen heading
into the master bedroom bathroom with newspapers in hand (he likes to read
when using the restroom). And that was it for a while, he just vanished.
- After a while my daughter who saw him go in called out
to him, thinking that he'd been in there too long. Then she got angry when
he didn't reply and went into the bathroom to look for him but he wasn't
there. Thinking he was pulling a prank on her she searched the entire house
and got my granddaughter and grandson to help search too (it was a small
3-bedroom house, approximately 1,000 square feet). They called out for
him, they looked in every room, in all closets, under beds, the garage,
in the backyard where the dogs would've given away his presence if he was
there, everywhere. His pickup was still in the
- driveway but he was nowhere to be found. (Note that the
bathroom window was small and sealed shut).
- Later on my daughter saw him come walking out of the
master bedroom into the hallway, papers still in hand, and acting surprised
that she was angry with him for hiding out so long. He claimed that he
was in the bathroom for the usual amount of time, then came out, but never
heard anyone calling out for him. When she told me I simply assumed that
he'd played a prank on her as he sometimes does, long prank though that
would've been, and therefore I didn't question it much. But a year later
the topic came up again while I was visiting them.
- At that time I took him aside and sort of guy-buddied
up to him and said "Come on now, you can tell me, you were actually
hiding out somewhere, right?" He adamantly claimed he wasn't. A year
would be a long time to stick to a prank anyway, but he claimed that he
was in the bathroom, heard no one call out for him, then came out. Period.
Odd. He wasn't wearing a watch then, he seldom does.
- Nothing unusual has happened regarding him since or before
then either. The one thing about his pranks on my daughter, and hers on
him, is that neither one can resist rubbing it in after a while. But he
never rubbed it in. To this day he'll tell you that he simply used the
bathroom, came back out, and that was it.
- PART #2 - From the Lady Herself.
- About two weeks after I got back from Vegas, I had just
made breakfast and my boyfriend got up from the table and went to the restroom.
I had finished cleaning up everything and he still wasn't out! I was worried,
it had been like 25 minutes, that plus he managed to skip out of helping
me clean the dishes. I went to look for him. Our house was small so there
wasn't all that much space to have to look in. I couldn't find him anywhere
though. I even walked into both bathrooms....and he wasn't there. I even
had my kids looking for him and we couldn't find him. We went outside around
the house, and he (boyfriend) was no where. Both our trucks were in the
driveway too so he couldn't have driven any place.
- So finally the kids and I just sat down in wonderment.
And out he comes from the hall. We asked him where he had been for so long???!!!
He told us he had been in the bathroom. We were shocked he would say that
to us because we had known better, and he was shocked that we were making
such a big deal over him being in the bathroom. He said he was only in
there for 2 minutes max. He had no idea he had been missing for over 30
minutes! He thought we were joking with him and still doesn't believe us
to this day.
- Several weeks or months after that (I am unsure of the
date now but it wasn't that long after the previous event), I was sleeping
on the couch one night when all of the sudden I felt a bright penetrating
type light shinning in my eyes. I equate it to the light the eye doctor
has on his head piece when you get an exam only I felt like it was smaller
and more concentrated. I opened my eyes what felt like immediately, and
there was nothing there and nothing that could have caused it.
- Maybe a few days later, I ran my hand over my thigh and
felt something weird like a group of scabs or something. It was on my left
leg's upper thigh (nearly to the hip). I checked it in the mirror and it
was a very distinct shape. It looked like the impression of a circle (the
skin was sorta shiny in this area) with a center dot and dots going around
that. It was perfectly symmetrical and each "dot" was scabbed
with blood as if large needles had been inserted where the dots were. It
was so perfect that it made me gasp. I don't know of ANYTHING that could
have done that or made that mark. It was obvious that something had stuck
me hard because of the scabs, and surely I'd have remembered that pain...but
- This mark lasted a few months, but it never dawned on
me to take a picture of it. I guess I was in denial...I don't know.
- Several months later I was talking to my best friend
and describing the mark. She told me she had one just like and that she
had it since she was a child, only hers wasn't scabbed, it was just scarred.
She said she got it right after a period of time where she used to dream
that leprechauns had a parade outside of her window. I thought she was
lying. I made her come over immediately and show me. The mark on her is
on her chest right between her breasts.
- I gasped for air when I saw it. It was identical to mine,
only her's is an actual scar whereas mine disappeared. When you see something
like that, it's kind of hard to ignore that something odd is indeed taking
place. This time I took pictures, although you can't see the mark well
in them. I can try to get better pictures now that I have a much better
camera. But in person, the mark is very clear and of course, abnormally
perfect and symmetrical. I can't emphasize enough to you that these marks
did not happen by chance or nature.
- I should also mention that this particular friend, has
always been like a sister to me. When we first met as children, we hugged
each other, saying we missed each other (as if we had know each other before
somehow???). And we've stayed close over the years. She now has two daughters.
Both of them have experienced strange things too. They claim they have
seen small UFOs, one like a ball and the other pyramid shaped dancing near
the phone pole wires when they were out playing. Children have vivid imaginations
but they seem pretty steadfast to their story.
- Also, when she was pregnant with the second child, she
used to tell me that she was having abduction dreams. After a doctor visit,
she was told that her child was going to have down syndrome, confirmed
by a test. They wanted to recheck her again next month. She dreamed that
the "aliens" had done something to her stomach during one of
the abduction dreams. She said she woke and had what looked like needle
holes in her stomach.
- The next time she went to the doctor to get tested, they
said the baby was perfectly healthy, and no sign of Down Syndrome.
- This friend and I have an odd close bond. If something
happens to one of us, something very similar happens to the other, especially
if it is an injury or near death experience. I can think about her and
she will call me, and vice versa.
- One day, my father had sent me a link to a web site that
showed an amateur video of an alleged "UFO." Now I am not saying
it is one or isn't. But what I did find interesting about it is that my
son, daughter, one of his friends, and myself, saw this exact same object.
Judging by the date that the video was made, we saw it four days after.
Here is the link if you want to check it out: ttp://rense.com/general40/daydisc.htm
- The object we saw was during the mid to late afternoon,
I am guessing around 3pm-4pm CST, on August 15th, 2003. The reason I remember
this is because it was the last free week day before my kids were to start
school again and I really really wanted to take them to my mother's house
to go swimming. I should probably also mention that my mother's house seems
to be directly beneath one of the paths that the airplanes coming from
DFW airport seem to fly through on their way out of Texas.
- I had got out of the pool to dry off and try and get
some sun on my legs. I was sitting in a patio chair when a light reflection
from the sky caught my attention. I looked up and saw this silvery object
hovering quite high in the sky, and it was reflecting brilliant light from
the sun every once in a while. It appeared to be as high as an airplane
would be, which was quite high. I called the kids to look at it and we
all sorta just agreed that based on the fact that it was floating and moving
at a really really slow pace, and how it would occasionally reflect the
bright light, not to mention that it had that sorta outline around the
edges, that it must have been one of those silver balloons (Mylar I think
is the name of them).
- It never did move fast, it just kept floating. And we
only saw the circle shape (meaning it never turned sideways for us like
it did in that video, because if it had, we would have realized it was
too thin from a side view to have been a balloon). Anyway, we sorta lost
interest in watching it after a while and continued swimming, thinking
nothing of it until 8/23/03 when my dad sent me that link.
- Anyway, like I said, I don't claim it was a UFO. It didn't
do any of the weird turns and high speeds that UFOs are reported to do,
and it floated much like a balloon. However, my dad did point out one good
fact and that was, if a balloon was to be as high as we saw it, the pressure
would have caused it to pop or drop. I guess it would be interesting to
find out what altitude a silver balloon would make it to before anything
happened to it.
- Also, I should point out that a lil nasal septum scab
appeared after that. Not that its related but seems like every year around
the summer time I get that same thing in my septum. It's right at the tip
of the septum in my right nostril. It starts to feel like maybe there is
a cut there, you know, irritated somehow, then later after that, there
is usually a scab that last longer than normal. The whole thing start to
finish usually lasts a month or maybe two.
- I have it right now also. It just started about a week
ago after I had an odd feeling that something involving abductions and
UFOs was about to surface again.
- A short while after the above incident, my daughter turns
up with that drawing that you received a picture of. About my daughter......my
daughter is nonverbal. She can say some words and some phrases but then
sometimes they are lost forever and never come back. She was born with
agenesis of the corpus collosum, which means the fibers that connect the
left and right halves of her brain are not there. Basically, she's split
brained. In both my pregnancies, I bled early on and was told with them
both that I was miscarrying, I don't know if this is significant or not.
Anyway, when she showed me the picture, I was floored because up until
that point she really hadn't been able to draw that well as she is also
somewhat developmentally delayed in some areas, that being one. I know
it looked like a UFO to me but I asked her what it was and she told me
"balloon." I kept thinking that was weird that she told me that
it was a balloon and I couldn't put two and two together.
- I asked her if she had ever seen a "balloon"
like that before and she told me, "yes."
- I asked her where she had seen it and she told me "grandmas"
and then did her arms like someone swimming, which of course, is her sign
for when we go swimming. Then it started to click.
- I remembered the "Mylar balloon" incident.
I began to worry a little so I questioned her some more. I should also
mention that this event with her drawing the picture took place after the
swimming pool Mylar balloon incident but before my dad sent me a link to
that web site with the same UFO.
- I went on to ask her "have you ever been in this
balloon?" She answered, "yes."
- I asked her, "when?" Her answer was to say
"grandma" again and do her arms like we were swimming. I looked
at the picture again trying to imagine it as a Mylar balloon but it really
bugged me that she drew little porthole looking windows on the so-called
- I asked her if she was alone on it and she told me no.
I asked her who else was there and she started naming myself, my son, and
my son's friend. She said all who were at the pool that day where there.
- I double checked by asking, "we were all inside
or out" and she said we were inside. I asked if others were there
and she said yes. I asked if she knew who the others were and she said
yes. I asked her who and he didn't know how to respond so she went in her
room and dug through some flash cards she had got from Sonic (a local restaurant)
in a kid's meal and found a picture of a gray or pink hippopotamus that
had big eyes and was standing on two feet (a cartoon one) and pointed to
it and shook her head a little like it was close to that picture but not
exactly. I asked her if she could be more precise. She went and got her
Dancing Dora doll and pointed at her big eyes and shrugged her shoulders
a little. She was trying to tell me whatever they were had big eyes and
didn't look human (is what I am gathering or she would have found a flash
card of something more human).
- I asked her if there were more people there that looked
like us and she said yes. She said she didn't know who they were. I asked
what they were doing. She started waving her arms in the air as if she
were fighting something off and yelled, "HELP! HELP!"
- As you can imagine...this worried me.
- A few days later, I am combing my daughter's hair when
I notice the scoop mark along her jaw bone on the bottom of her left cheek.
There is NOTHING that would have happened to her to cause this. And trust
me, I know EVERY inch of my daughter's face as I have spent so much time
- It was at this point, that I realized that there was
a good chance and a very REAL possibility that someone was doing something
to my own child that was beyond my control. I become angry and I am still
- About a week after my daughter's scoop mark was found,
I found one on my own left cheek. It is much higher and smaller than hers
but something that was DEFINITELY not there before and that came up over
- Somewhere along the line I found them on my son, only
for some reason I didn't associate his with ours. But his is on his lower
left back and there are seven of them. They are VERY pronounced to look
at. I wasn't able to get a camera to catch them well enough to emphasize
how pronounced they truly are.
- I know I wrote a lot but I think I've touched on the
major recent things and I sincerely hope that someone will come forth who
has perhaps rationalized their own missing time as being a "normal
event." I nearly did the same. It is so easy to dismiss as coincidental
and normal that which should be given attention and scrutiny.
- Brian, there is one more thing I forgot to mention about
the picture my daughter drew. I feel like she was calling it a "balloon"
because that day at the pool when we saw that object in the sky, we kept
referring to it as a balloon. I think this may also be why she put the
string coming down from it, as she knows that balloons are supposed to
have strings. I could just never figure out why she thought "balloons"
were supposed to have windows.
- Before this time, I do not recall my daughter ever seeing
anything about UFOs on TV or anywhere else, nor did we refer to the object
in the sky that day as one either. It looked just like a Mylar balloon,
and we had no reason to think otherwise, until my dad randomly sent me
that video link.
- I kept meaning to write to rense.com about the fact that
we also saw that same object four days after the video was shot but I just
never got around to doing it.
- Take Care.
- I would like to extend my many thanks to the lady and
her father for writing to me and providing this information about these
experiences. Once again, if anyone has any information about the flight
that ended up having 45 minutes go missing, please contact me.
