The team is hot on the trail of a case that just happened, one that had the whole country talking just weeks ago. In December 2007, people begin seeing UFOs in the skies ninety miles from Dallas, Texas. Within a month, the reports had increased ten-fold. The UFO Hunters travel to Stephenville, Texas to investigate the strange lights in the sky. They meet witnesses never interviewed for TV, analyze strange footage shot by people all over Texas, and come to an incredible conclusion.
On the night of October 7, 1965 an actual UFO Military Alert took place at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Also involved were the following Air Force Bases in California: Norton, George, Hamilton and March plus NORAD and the Los Angeles Air Defense Sector (LAADS). An F-106 Delta Dart Interceptor was sent up after 12 Luminous UFOs (which were high tech solid craft, under apparent intelligent control, which easily outdistanced the F-106 at 40,000 foot altitude. We have the confirmation on declassified control tower tapes, and the soldier manning the control tower that evening, Sgt. Chuck Sorrels. The audio reveals LAADS requested that Edwards AFB personnel wake up the bases UFO Officer to assess the developing situation. In 1965 Edwards AFB had a UFO Officer. The objects appeared on radar at Edwards and were also picked up on radar at San Pedro, LAADS, George AFB and were seen visually at George and several areas at Edwards. The team interviews Sgt. Sorrels, listens to the audio of the events as they happened and plot the radar and visual sightings. Former Air Force Flight Engineer Bill Scott discusses the case with the team, and the UFO Hunters speak with George Merrett, a former test pilot based at Edwards who was at Edwards on October 7, 1965 – he will tell us what he saw and give his opinions as to what might have occurred in the skies above the United States’ premiere air test facility.
In the early 1950's, James McDonald, a senior physicist at the University of Arizona, changed the entire course of UFO research. For nearly 20 years he examined UFO reports in great detail – interviewing over 500 witnesses, uncovering important government documents, and testifying before Congress in 1968. He challenged skeptics, performed scientific analysis, and led the charge for UFOs to be properly studied. After his tragic death in 1971, his investigations and files were sent to the University archives, where they lay dormant...until now. The team brings these lost UFO files back into the public eye for the first time on television, and looks at evidence long thought lost to history.
The investigators take a look at close encounters of the second kind, such as the December 29, 1980 case of Betty Cash, and Vickie and Cody Landrum, who claimed they encountered a fiery object hovering over a road that emitted intense heat and allegedly left them suffering symptoms of radiation exposure.
The hunters try to find what the military covered up in a recent May 2008 crash of an unknown object in Needles, California, and looks at other famous crash incidents like the Kecksburg, Pennsylvania case where the military supposedly undertook a massive clean up effort and intimidated local witnesses.
For years, the team has been tracking an elusive prey only seen at night--ships, shaped like triangles, impossibly huge, and videotaped over cities around the world. But are they ours, or theirs? The team investigates numerous UFO sightings that have recently been reported in Sonora, California, a charming old West town nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range nicknamed Triangle Alley. What makes these sightings so compelling are rare daytime footage of triangles in flight. This footage will be digitally analyzed to determine if these are indeed UFOs and not military jets. The team will also visit Texas to speak to military experts and witnesses to compelling triangle sightings. It's speculated that these triangle craft have been visiting us for centuries
The hunters delve into cases involving witness interrogation by mysterious agents known as the "Men in Black" (MIBs), who sometimes appear suddenly after a UFO event, exhibit unusual behavior, know facts that have not been divulged by witnesses, and threaten the lives of those involved with severe consequences unless they remain silent about their encounter.
Continuing on the trail of the MIBs, the hunters follow the agent's supposed connections to a remote, military testing facility, the Dugway Proving Ground near Dugway, Utah. Dubbed by UFO watchers as "Area 52" and "the New Area 51" there have been numerous reports and video evidence of UFO activity surrounding the base for the past 10 years.
The team tries to gather insight on the military's "First Response" protocols, the alleged recovery and cover-up procedures that are followed in case of a UFO incident. The investigation takes them to a claim of a military pursuit of multiple UFOs near Long Beach, California and a return visit to the supposed UFO crash in Needles, California in 2008.
