Corey Goode: Thank you.
David: So what we’re about to see here is Mark McCandlish describing a very fascinating UFO sighting that was certainly unambiguous way back during the era of the Vietnam War. Let’s take a look.

THE CITY IN THE SKY
Mark McCandlish: I was at an air show at El Toro Marine Corps Station. This was back around 1991 or ’92. And they had a static display there.
And they had this beautifully restored B-24 Liberator.
The aluminum of the plane had been polished to a mirror finish. And they had all the stencils were just perfect.
And I’m standing there behind this rope, and I’m looking at this plane. And I’ve just got a big grin on my face, just admiring what a wonderful restoration they’ve done on this plane.
And standing next to me is this fellow. He’s probably about five foot five, an older gentleman, probably in his 70s or 80s. And he’s got the same grin on his face too.
And so I look over and I said, “Boy, she’s a beaut, ain’t she?”
And he says, “Yeah!” He said, “I started my flying career in one of these.”
I said, “Really? You were in the Second World War?”
And he said, “Yeah, I was in the Pacific theater.”
And I said, “Well, so how long were you in?”
And he says, “Oh, 25 or 30 years.” And he said, “I ended up my career as a navigator in a B-52 in Vietnam.”
And I said, “Well, boy, that was some pretty serious fighting, especially, you know, B-52s and all the political flak that the military took.”
And so we started talking about different planes and weapons systems, the different things that he had flown or been a part of over the years.
And I said, “Well, you know, I understand that there’s some new, pretty advanced stuff that’s flying around now.
“I’ve heard stories from people who were in the Persian Gulf War who saw things zipping around in the sky that were unexplainable, making right angle turns at incredible velocity, stopping on a dime, and shooting away like they’d come out of a gun.”
And he kind of nodded and said, “Yeah, I’ve seen some of that stuff.”
And I said, “Really? Well, tell me about this.”
So he looks around nervously, you know, because he felt that maybe somebody might be tailing him – at least that was the way he acted.
And he says, “Well,” he says, “in the mid-’60s,” he says, “we’d flown a mission over North Vietnam, and our plane had picked up some flak from a surface-to-air missile. And so they sent us over to Guam to repair the aircraft, and we got about a week of R and R.”
And he said, “We were on our way back to our base in Thailand, and we were out over the Pacific. It’s about 1 o’clock in the morning, full Moon, not a cloud in the sky anywhere.”…
