Episode 36 - The Mantell Incident

On January 7, 1948, the Kentucky Air National Guard ordered four planes to approach an unidentified flying object. Among the four pilots was Captain Thomas F. Mantell, an experienced, highly decorated WWII pilot. Over the next hour, the pilots would attempt to chase the object until they each began to turn back due to low fuel or lack of oxygen. All, except Captain Mantell. When his plane crashed to the earth, Mantell would become the first known casualty in history attributed to a UFO. Exactly what did those pilots see in the sky that day? Join Johnny, Carter and Chris as they explore what would become known as the Mantell UFO Incident.
