This UFO story which we published a few items from 2012 was one of our investigations was the most contested ! probably due to lack of information in the writing that we made public testimony before the audio interview. Here is finally the most interesting segments to understand the two episodes of testimony and to question the meaning and objectives of the’ Military operation’ (?) the confinement of six tanks around the family home during the following days :
Article April 2013 :
Account of the observation
Saint-Raphael-de-Bellechasse, summer 1978, around midday
(Chaudière-Appalaches, Quebec, Canada)
narrated by the witness, reformulated for clarity testimony, with change of names for confidentiality.
"That day, my brothers and I were playing behind the house, which in itself was quite unusual since lunch soon swallowed, we used to have fun in the surrounding nature. My mother stretched the machine a little further and my younger brother was with her. We had at that time respectively 9,8, 7 (I) and 3 years.
We were playing cowboys and indians. My brother Sylvain (8 years) trying to climb on my shoulders and so I head up : it is then thata great wind rose and then an object is passed quickly, so fast that it seemed to blur but silent, this however I saw it was not so high in the sky.
Image as example.
Sylvain has fallen from my shoulders ... and Luke (9 years) approached ... we watched him what we saw before we pass ...
Immediately after, was heard in the distance the characteristic sound of jets coming closer ... it has become a deafening roar : we saw 3 hunters go over the house ! but so low that we could see the details in the wings. And then there was the "sonic boom" that literally threw us on the ground my brothers and I !
Mathieu (3 years) screaming and crying ... my mother came over to see if we were well. We are all back inside the house. We were not talking, we shouted to be heard ! because our ears were clogged (for about one hour). Once inside we went to our respective rooms : some objects fell to Earth, nothing very surprising after the "bang ! "Who had done everything in the house tremble.
I do not think we speak again of this story in the time that followed. However, I have a very good memory : I remember events as far back as my two years, I can even reproduce a conversation that took place years ago in describing people who were there, clothes and stuff : I reproduce the conversation word for word,
but what is passed between the event and the arrival of six (6) Army tanks on the grounds of our family home, I do not remember.
I do not remember either of the arrival of these tanks, and yet these are vehicles that are far from silent ! They arrived at night, making campaign equivalent to passing a band in the center of the village at midnight.
Here on Google maps où nous habitions, a point located between the road and Godbout 3rd place, you can view the location : it is a detached house on a point of land. At that time we had no neighbors to our left and the nearest was about 10-15 minutes à pieds. Tanks remained a few days around the house, soldiers present were friendly and let us go up to the inside of tanks no problem, this is also the time that my older brother got hooked Army, dream he has realized an adult.
I can not say if my parents knew the reason for the presence of the military at home, especially as we were the only ones to be surrounded by them, and yet they could have easily hide in the nearby woods without us will have been even had knowledge of their presence. The tanks are divided as they came, de nuit, and again, I do not remember having heard from, which is quite surprising because six (6) tanks that start at the same time make a racket all the devils and not to mention the turbulence of their displacement.
Ah oui ! another thing : one could come to us, and apparently we either did not have the right to leave. After their departure, our lives have resumed as if nothing had happened. The family who lived nearby (about 20-25 walk) and had seen what had happened to us we were never asked the reason for the presence of tanks. It was only years later that my brothers, Mother and I had the opportunity to discuss this memory: However, we have few answers to our questions.
By cons we have all become if we want fans unexplained phenomena.
My brothers and I, we always wondered what really happened at that time : we told the story a few times tanks encircling us, but we stopped, because we often treat us fantasists ... I'll get the pictures, they are blurred, but we can see the presence of some tanks. »
