For the first time ever, a series of restored documents is available from the US Air Force’s 22 year study of UFOs. The span covers the beginning of the project, which includes cases from June 1947 and prior. Anyone who has reviewed the pages of the US Air Force’s Project Blue Book UFO study either at the US National Archives or via online digital scans might have noticed a common thread among them all, their lack of legibility. Cameron Pack, a UFO researcher from Virginia, has spent many months worth of effort transcribing the earliest cases from the government’s UFO records into a clear and legible format. In his volume, Restored Project Blue Book UFO Files: June 1947 & Before, Pack gives the public a perspective of the records that no one has ever seen until now. The US Air Force officially studied the phenomenon of Unidentified Flying Objects from 1947 to 1969 under the name of Project Blue Book. Much of the study’s records were retired to the US National Archives in 1975 and made available for public viewing on rolls of microfilm, while other additional microfilm files were preserved in private collections. The microfilming process has left many pages difficult to read and some sections literally impossible to decipher. A volume of restored Project Blue Book files has no doubt long been a wish for UFO historians. The Restored Project Blue Book UFO Files: June 1947 & Before is a unique and intriguing window to the time that is often referred to as the beginning of the modern UFO era. It is a solid foundation of research for those who are interested in the US Air Force’s involvement with the UFO phenomenon. The volume also acts as a great companion piece to other works written on the subject. The files of Project Blue Book were first available for public viewing from 1970 to 1975 at Maxwell Air Force Base. The records were maintained on rolls of microfilm. The witness names and other identifying details in the records were kept intact while at Maxwell Air Force Base. However, when the files were prepared for transfer to the US National Archives in 1975, the records were sanitized of all names, addresses and personal data. In 1998, a completely intact and uncensored copy of the Project Blue Book files was found in the US National Archives and purchased by the Fund for UFO Research. Additionally, some of the original US Air Force UFO Project Sign microfilms have been preserved within private collections. These microfilms are also uncensored. The US Air Force's processing of their Project Blue Book records onto microfilm in 1970 and 1975 has typically made those sets of the records harder to read. In some cases, words on one version or the other have become obliterated. The now-private collections of 1940s era US Air Force Project Sign microfilm typically have a better level of quality than the copies that were later prepared for public viewing at Maxwell Air Force Base and the US National Archives. However, even the 1940s records sometimes have legibility issues. This volume represents the combination of all these sources being utilized to compile a clear and legible presentation of the Project Blue Book UFO files. The collection includes sighting cases which date from June 1947 and prior. "Cameron Pack has produced a truly valuable tool for the casual reader as well as the serious Blue Book-era researcher. One can only hope that Cameron continues his work to provide many more volumes to come, giving all of us a complete and legible record of the US government's early involvement in the UFO mystery."- Robert & Susan Swiatek

About the Author:

Cameron Pack began his research into the topic of ufology after a 2003 close encounter of the first kind. The experience led Cameron to begin looking at thousands of different reports of UFOs from around the world. A favorite area of research has always been Project Blue Book and the classic UFO cases from that time period. Cameron has made Freedom of Information Act requests to local law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the US Air Force for specific areas of information on UFOs. He became a certified field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network in 2009. He also served as Assistant State Director for Virginia in the Mutual UFO Network from 2010 to 2013. Also in 2009, Cameron founded the UFO Club of Virginia Beach. He acted as club president until 2013, when he retired from his duties. The club was a tremendous success, with articles about the group featured in the local newspaper on two occasions. This collection represents Cameron’s love of the history of the UFO phenomenon. He thanks you for your dedication to ufology’s past by researching these documents.
