The Allagash Affair
case involves four credible witnesses. In 1976 four buddies: Chuck Rak,
Charlie Foltz, and Jack and Jim Weiner decided to take a camping trip.
All the men were students majoring in art. They left on August 20, a
Friday evening, and drove out of Boston to a remote area, a lake on the
When they arrived at the lake they set up
camp on the lake's beach. They built a large bonfire which they knew
from experience would last about between four and five hours. Then they
hopped into the two canoes they had brought and headed out to do some
night fishing. It was pitch black out on the lake and they planned on
using the bonfire as a beacon to find their way back to the campsite.
after moving to the center of the lake, Chuck got a strange feelingÑas
if someone were looking at him. Turning around, he saw a huge ball of
light hovering about two hundred feet above a distant section of the
lake. Chuck pointed at the object and said, "Hey, look!" The others
turned to see a bright, perfectly round sphere of light pulsating and
Charlie grabbed a flashlight and blinked it on
and off at the object. The sphere, which had begun to slowly rise up,
immediately stopped. Then it slowly headed towards Charlie and his
buddies, growing in size as it approached.
guys panicked and began rowing for their lives, not knowing what this
strange glowing thing was. As they furiously paddled, a hollow cone of
pale blue light shot out of the sphere and began advancing on the water
towards their canoes. At that point they all blanked out.
The Fishermen Get Caught
next thing they remembered was being back on the beach and getting out
of their canoes. The object was still hovering overhead. Standing
there, dazed, they looked at the object for two or three minutes before
it shot off at super speed, straight up into the night sky, and
All four men felt strange and disoriented. Despite
the appearance and disappearance of a very strange object, none of them
felt like talking about it. They did, however, notice that their
bonfire had burned down completely, leaving only a few hot embers. To
their knowledge, they had only been gone for about thirty minutes. The
fire should have lasted at least four hours. This later turned out to
be a classic case of "missing time."
Strangers in the Bedroom
years later Jim Weiner suffered a head injury. The injury caused a form
of epilepsy known as tempero-limbic epilepsy. As part of his treatment
he was asked if he was having any strange experiences. Jim then
stated that he was having very strange and life-like dreams. He also
frequently awoke to find strange creatures in his room at the foot of
his bed. Jim's doctor referred him to Raymond Fowler, a serious UFO
Back in Time
had Jim hypnotically regressed, and the whole story about his camping
trip to the Allagash Waterway came out. Jim and his three buddies had
been picked up on the lake by the beam of light that had followed them.
They were all taken aboard a spacecraft. They were examined and had
samples of blood, semen, and urine taken. Skin, hair, and nail samples
were taken as well.
Cross References and Drawings
four witnesses to the Allagash incident confirmed the experience of the
others. All their descriptions matched. All the men were artists and
were able to provide detailed drawings of what they had seen. The
drawings included the alien beings, the surroundings, and the
instrumentation used for their examinations.
Double Your Pleasure; Double Your Fun
aliens were particularly interested in Jim and his twin brother Jack.
It turns out that these twins had been abducted almost since birth.
Years later in May 1988, Jack was abducted again along with his wife,
Mary. Jack recalls that they were literally "floated out of the house
and across the lawn" to a waiting craft.
A Foreign Object
after Jack and his wife were abducted, Jack found a strange lump on his
leg. It seemed to appear out of nowhere overnight. Jack's family
physician was concerned that the lump might be cancerous and arranged
to have a surgeon remove it. When the surgeon went in he found a small,
strange-looking object. Since he didn't know what it was and had never
seen anything like it, the surgeon sent it to the Center for Disease
Control in Atlanta.
The Air Force Steps In
in trying to find out what happened to the removed object, Jack
discovered it was sent to a military pathologist in Washington, D.C.
From there a United States Air Force colonel took control of it, and it
was never seen again. When Jack went to ask the surgeon more about the
object, the surgeon stonewalled him and refused to talk about it even
though Jack had been his patient.
The full account and all the aftermath is vividly recounted in Raymond E. Fowler's book 'The Allagash Abductions'.
