I remember, that was a very noisy restaurant and thank you for the Whiteman AFB report of June 1966, there was lot of activity at the base and at individual missile sites. I had several lectures on base and the base commander and his wife told me of numerous cases. The AF folks assumed that Allen Hynek as consultant to the AF projects, knew everything the AF knew and since I was working closely with Allen I did too, so, they talked freely about events in the area.The base commander was flying a B-52 with full crew and all observed a metallic disc in daylight flying very close to them. Two of the crewmen took 35mm photos using up all of their film. He told me of a landing near one of the sites and he dispatched two strike teams and they watched the object with orders to fire on it if anyone got out, there were EM effects - communication between the team and the control tower.
I talked (in 1966) to several of the people who guarded the landing site with traces. Several base kids saw the thing come down through the trees behind a housing section on base. After several minutes it ascended leaving behind landing imprints and a lot of tree damage from its descent & ascent. I found and talked with the base photographer who documented the site and traces with a 120 format camera. He told me he turned the negatives and prints over to officers and didn't keep any prints. I located 11 witnesses (including the photographer) who confirmed the event.
