The unidentified craft has returned once again to Massey for a third encounter this year and this time observers believe it brought a friend with it to our skies. Security camera footage obtained from the new Midland Park Solarium complex clearly shows the craft hovering above Massey. "What makes this unique is, when the image is enhanced we can clearly see another object behind the bright light of the craft" said Van Eastener of the Midland Park Solarium.
"The Manitou ATC tracked the craft into the region at 8:56 pm this evening. It was traveling on a south-east trajectory and hovered over Massey, at the same location as last February, for approximately seven minutes. It left the region traveling south over Meaford district and out toward the GCG Ocean" said Paul Skies of the Manitou Air Traffic Control Centre. "Unlike the last two times, however, Manitou Emergency Services deployed a helicopter from the Emergency Operations Centre in Midland to intercept the craft." he continued. Several witnesses reported that they could see a dark aircraft that sounded like a helicopter approach the UFO only to have the object disappear when the aircraft attempted to intercept it.
A sonic boom was heard over the South GCG Ocean by patrons of the Sunset Ballroom in Manitou Market Mall, Meaford district. The Ballroom reported several windows were broken on the south-side of the building as a result of the sound however no injuries were reported. The Ballroom closed early this evening for crews to clean up the broken glass and replace the windows.
An unnamed spokesperson from the Manitou E.O.C. stated that "a tactical helicopter was launched from the centre around 2100 hours on flight toward the west" but he declined to comment on the mission of the military aircraft. The Manitou E.O.C. went on Yellow Alert for thirty minutes this evening during the incident, it has since returned to regular operations.
When the Corran Journal pressed for further details Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Alberta of the Manitou Emergency Operations Centre released the following statement. "Our information sharing procedures have changed following the recent threats to our Grid National security and we are unable to discuss missions of our aircraft".
