Then they got another piece of the puzzle. A call from a man who lives in a house boar on the river who says he saw the fiery object, that it had crashed about 100 yards west of the river… that it landed with a thump. Hayes says he’s known the witness for years by the name ‘Bob on the river’. Bob thought a plane had crashed and tried to call 911, but his cell wouldn’t work so he moved his boat out into the river and then heard the helicopters. In an interview with journalist Linda Howe, Bob says he say at least five helicopters flying in formation including a large sky crane. The crane picked up the oval shaped object still glowing, and flew away heading in the direction of Las Vegas. One odd detail, the choppers arrived only 17 minutes after the object crashed.
Out of the blue the people at the station got a call from a friend in Laughlin who said that the Laughlin Airport had been inundated on the night of the crash with so called “Janet” planes. That’s the airline that flies workers to top secret Area 51.
