Kithra has a new post at her website that addresses one of the most enduring, and weird, UFO-related (or possibly UFO-related, or non UFO-related!) cases of all.
She begins: "A mystery that had lasted 53 years was finally solved in the year 2000; or at least part of the mystery was solved. And now it's just possible that the second part of the mystery has also been solved. But, first, we have to go back to the beginning. In August 1947 a British passenger aircraft began a scheduled flight from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Santiago, Chile. The name of the aeroplane was Star Dust, and it was a non-military configuration of the Lancaster bomber; and icon of WWII to many of us in the UK. However, only a very few minutes from the theoretical end of its journey it simply vanished. An extensive search of the Andes Mountains, where it disappeared, found no trace of it at all."
But that's not the weirdest part. What is the weirdest part is one word, "STENDEC..."
