The Lonnie Zamora Case
This is another well-known, well-documented case. You may have seen it
on television; it is featured regularly on "Unsolved Mysteries." Here's
what happened. Lonnie Zamora was a police officer in Soccoro, New
Mexico. On April 24, 1964, after spotting a speeding car drive through
the middle of town, Zamora raced after it to give the offending driver
a speeding ticket. The driver kept going and headed out of town and
into the desert. Zamora followed.
Up in the Sky!
After a few miles Zamora heard a loud roar and looked up in time to see
a large flame descending from the sky, going down behind a nearby
ridge. Zamora altered his course to check the flame out. He knew there
was a dynamite shed nearby.
Leaving his car, Zamora walked around the small hill. There he saw a
large oblong-shaped silver craft sitting on four legs. Standing next to
it were two small beings in skin-tight jump suits. There was a red
insignia on the door of the craft. The beings suddenly turned around
and were completely surprised to see Zamora standing there. It was
about 5:45 p.m. on a bright sunny day.
"Sam, Sam! Get Out Here,
Zamora was just as startled and ran back to his car where he radioed
for Sergeant Sam Chavez to come out immediately and meet him. Zamora
then heard the roar again. When he turned, the two beings were gone and
the craft was lifting, up trailing a flame and kicking up dust. Zamora
ducked behind his car, thinking the thing might explode. After reaching
an altitude of several hundred feet, the flame stopped and the craft
drifted silently over the mountains and disappeared.
Later when engineers were called to the site for inspection, they found
a large burned area and four deep V-shaped holes were the four legs of
the craft had been. The engineers determined that to have made holes
that deep, the legs would each have had to support an entire ton for a
total craft weight of four tons. This fact alone precludes a hoax being
perpetrated by Zamora. The U.S. Air Force also agreed this event was
real, statingperpetrated.": "Information
obtained during the investigation revealed that the sighting was
legitimate and there was no indication a hoax was being perpetrated."
The actual report appears in the "Documents" section of this website.
