Disc-Shaped UFO Swoops Over Winnipeg 'Oz Factor'?
A very unusual Close Encounter with possible "Oz factor"
experiences reported by the witnesses was reported to me last
night. Here's the account:
June 8, 2004
Two people were delivering early-morning newspapers in south-
central Winnipeg when they saw a bright light moving in the sky,
apparently approaching them. As they were placing newspapers in
sidewalk boxes, the witnesses were shocked to see the object
noiselessly fly over their car and come to a stop, hovering only
"three or four stories high" above them. As they dropped off
their papers, the object "shot off to the west" and disappeared
from sight. The two witnesses quickly got in their car and drove
away to another newspaper box location less than a kilometre
away. As they delivered their next bundle, they were terrified
to see an "oblong" object with white lights moving around its
middle rise up from the ground behind a heavily treed area and
begin to fly towards them.
"It was definitely not a plane or anything else," one witness
exclaimed. "I saw it very clearly, and it was something very
The object made no noise as it swooped over their car. In fact,
the witnesses noted that their surroundings had taken on a very
eerie character, as there were no other cars on the streets, and
not even a single pedestrian walking a dog.
"Usually, we see some sporadic traffic, even at this hour," a
witness said. "But there was absolutely no one around at all. It
was like a ghost town in the middle of the city."
They drove and parked their car at an all-night coffee shop and
ran into the store as the object flew over the building. They
convinced the proprietor to go outside with them and take a
look, but when they came out, the object had retreated and was
now only a bright light in the distance. After a short while,
the two original witnesses calmed down and continued on their
About an hour later, as they were delivering more papers, they
looked up to see "a strange plane" with no windows fly slowly
overhead, making an odd whirring noise. They saw two more
unusual aircraft flying in the sky, and then, "suddenly,
everything changed and there were other cars around, people
walking and ordinary planes were flying over us."
The witnesses were very frightened by their experience, and
could not sleep well during the day after their night shift.
They eventually contacted CFB Winnipeg later in the evening, and
were referred to UFOROM.
